General Comments

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.
