    Is this like a threat detection program or what? ::)


    I just inserted my small sister's BlackBerry, then ESS automatically found an autorun.ini virus, so it quarantined it, but it didn't give me the option to clean or delete it, it just quarantined in!

    Then it found many files in the RECYCLER folder of that BlackBerry but it also quarantined them and didn't offer me to delete them or clean them!

    I am starting to lose faith in Eset


    Is Avast! 7 better in that regards?

    Please don't recommend MSE as many people on Wilder Security Forums told me how bad it is and how bad their support and their support forums are. Appaarently, many people THINK MSE is good where he reality is far from that, it sucks in detection of malware and doesn't score well according to some online tests i've seen

    any suggestions or is Avast my best bet?

    Search Applications section there is more than one Poll e.c.t are regards to virus checkers, Personally I just use Avast free with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware + Windows own firewall.

    I ended up installing MSE + MBAM Pro

    hehe, ess stores it in quarantine in case it deleted your file infected or crack/keygen etc. so you can recover em. :)
