Escan has kept my dad's laptop relatively clean. Or so he was told by the IT guys at his workplace. But, of late, the laptop, an HP Pavilion running Windows 7 Pro, takes over 5 minutes to boot! Yes, 5+ minutes! I cleaned the laptop with the usual tweaks & tools. No change. Uninstalled EScan. Then installed Avira which I've been running on my own PC for a while now with zero problems. The laptop booted in under 2 minutes, which is an improvement. :) I'm running a full system scan as I type this and Avira has already made 15 detections. In summary, I wouldn't recommend EScan. It probably worked for a few other people but I'd never install EScan on any computer I work on.
