- the AV software is based on Kaspersky, which is assumed to be a solid AV engine.
- Regular updates
I have used this product Escan Anti-Virus about half a year now.
It had a very intrusive feel to it when I installed it (its components could be found all over the place), but nevertheless uninstalls properly, I believe.
The negative effects on system performance were the reason I eventually uninstalled it. Symptomatic was its "SCANNINGPROCESS" thread that would occasionally suck memory like hell and my computer would virtually become unusable, forcing me to reboot.
I just wiped it from my system and installed a different scanner/guard software. Windows runs visibly faster, everything works like a charm again.
