  1. 1. Should we keep "Installed Antivirus Product"?

The "Installed Antivirus Product" is based on portions of the file system and registry in which other Antivirus Products exist. Detection is difficult and sometimes inaccurate because of left-over remnants. One of the suggestions in the Ideas forum was to simply remove it.

 

Do you need it? Does it benefit you at all?

Definitely not!

 

It achieves no function except to make me question the quality of Immunet when it states the wrong A-V.

I had to toss my vote in for the last one after finding that IMP doesn't see Avast as installed, Comodo as installed, and although I know it is not intended to be used as a standalone product having seen a test with only IMP installed and it having missed every item and resulting in a heavily infected pc I really think detection and protection are far more needed than anything else at present. I love the concept and the look of the GUI has improved with this newer version but it has a ways to go for actual detection even when combined with a trustworthy anti-virus/security suite, thanks for the hard work and continuing effort being put into this product!

 

No - I'd rather have Immunet working on increasing my protection

Immunet is new! and isnt as great as other Antivirus like Avira, Avast... That why I choose the last one - Immunet, don't use resources on this NOW! First, Bug fixes, then security, and then bug fixes and THEN Definitions! Thats how it works.

Hi,

 

I will keep my installed and trusted AV product (NOD32) + Immunet FREE until:

 

1. The amount of community members has further increased

2. The amount of threats protected from has further increased

3. Immunet PLUS has been developed further regarding many features and with many setup options.

 

Cheers,

I feel that society must be a question: "Do we want to remain as satellite virus (installed with another, for reinforcement) or do we remain confident about our competitive ability?"

 

I think immunet work well alone, with a bit 'of prudence

 

Certainly it isn't the best antivirus (although very good).

 

When the company also invent a firewall or other security products we talk about a finished, complete and reliable product. Now the software is still in development and manufacture, to council to assist novice users immunet another antivirus product. But I want to give high reliability software to work alone doing it and helping the community. The community must help and each user should make a small contribution for the good of all.

Since this is a community based AV product working harder to improve protection would benefit everyone as a whole. Although a pretty neat feature it doesn't recognize my AV which is Panda Cloud Anti-virus.

Hi Richie58,

My AV "NOD32" is not automatically recognized neither, but I have manually added it myself!

This just means that you have not correctly removed a previous AV application, files or folders are still present.

The question in the poll is not about what you will use or keep, it is about the function which displays the "installed AV " application.

I am running Win7 64bit on 2 machines and Win732 bit on another. The feature correctly shows Avast on 2 and MSE on 1. I have got friends and family trying Immunet and have seen it running on 10+ machines,in each case the reported AV application is correct.

 

Personally I quite like the feature and would like to see it stay.

 

As to the comments in this thread about becoming a mainstream or stand alone application and adding a firewall I sincerely hope not, that would remove the whole point and thrust of Immunet for me. If you have a NAT router and a decent AV system in place software firewalls are totally unnecessary.

Personally I think it looks very professional on the GIU.

But, mine is accurate.

IMHO keep it, and perhaps when there's time- improve it.

Is it static- only reads at time of installation? Or wll it pick up additional AV's etc if there added later?

It's dynamic, but it's on 'start'. It should pick up new AV if you add it but it may not see it until you reboot.

I like the way of immunet protect works.

But i think that is early to protect a pc as a standalone antivirus.

I see many advantages from verion 1 to 2, but i think it needs more time.

Sorry for my english.

Thnx for ur time.Keep up good work.

Best,

Boombastik.
