Hi Everyone, thanks so much for so far provided feedback, it really means a lot to us.

So far is working ok,the biggest issue so far, is the detection rate, but since it uses clamav (is not that good as we all know) and your own engine ( new so is normal not be that good). otherwise is doing ok. i will use it on my "main" machine, so i will let u know if someting else "pops up", do u want us to the send the samples to you u? or at this point there is no need?
@marciocruz thanks pal, we really appreciate it adn yes, samples are more than welcome, feel free to share that via DM

UI looks cute, but detection ratio needs a lot of improvements like the screenshot from Shadowra explains that.
@Noctis The Hedgehog thanks Buddy, yes we are aware that detection at this point needs a lot of improvement and we're working on it. Shout out to @Shadowra for being always here for help

Are there any alternatives to the Clam engine that you were considering?
Yes, down the line we plan to implement all sorts of different features.
Again currently Clam AV was the only suitable open-source engine we needed for scan processing and we did a lot of customization on that side too but aside from that, we built pretty much a lot of stuff in-house using various technologies.

NET it promts about and redirects to a download site for manual install, but no message about Visual C.
Which and what C`s do one have to install?

All this should of course be automatic.
This beta is very much BETA.

whats the main difference between this "Anti-Virus" and the watchdog "Anti-Malware" product? Anti-Malware - WATCHDOG

considering that costs £36.99 a year for 1 PC! , that "anti-Malware" product was quite possibly (so far) the worst protection ive ever tested.

there are so many good free solutions out there (bit defender free/avg free/avast free/windows defender/kaspersky free/wisevector stop x) if you are charging money for a product, it really MUST have some protection, in the nicest possible way...... if you cant protect a customer better than those products, you are doing them a dis-service by charging hard earned money.
please dm me a link to test this new one.
