Can i use WiseVector as a standalone-av? how does it works with other free av's like avast or panda?
Hi minhgi,Hi WiseVector,
The dlls aren't particularly big. I got a 2015 Lenovo Thinkpad laptop that was fresh install Win10Pro 1903 and used the Lenovo System Driver updater. Pretty sure the Intel drivers are rather old from 2015-2016. WiseVector might not have seem these files before. I'm not too worry since everything is installed and working probably using only WiseVector.

Hi WiseVector,Hi minhgi,
Thanks for your reply.
Does WiseVector StopX still work slowly when scanning the dlls after the first scan?
Hi harlan4096,Last special sample (MegaCortex Ransomware) just posted by @Der.Reisende yesterday:
WV detected/deleted several dropped/spawned exe files in C:\Windows\Temp\ but 903 files were encrypted in different system folders... BUT Users Documents and WV bait folders (inside Documents folder) were protected , files in my bait folder placed in drive root folder (outside User Space) were encrypted also:
The sample is already detected on demand/upon extraction:
Observed same.bug report:
- When I do a right-click to a folder and select "scan with Wisevector" -> WV doesn't show the scan popup, I have to click on WV tray icon and it shows up (its popup minimizes)
Hi MalwareTypes,I'm giving this a test drive and liking it so far.
One thing, @WiseVector: I noticed than when opening programs such as XYplorer, mpv or AIMP, and I notice a spike in CPU usage that I don't see when using Windows native programs, for example Windows explorer. This just happens when opening said programs but the lag is noticeable.
Could you guys check into it? Or, is this a byproduct of it being an AI driven program?
Tested WiseVector StopX against URLhaus Database.
WiseVector did not detect the same (file types - extension) samples that Norton did not detect.
Sent samples to virus(@)wisevector.com
It happens each time I close and open the program or a new file again. If I add them to the Exclusions list, then the programs open instantly; but when I take them out of the list, it takes just a moment too long for them to open and you can clearly see a spike in WiseVector service CPU usage. OTOH, Chrome opens faster for example.Hi MalwareTypes,
Is it the first time you opening these programs while using WiseVector StopX?
