Scan Now

Recommended Posts

Falcon, if you're using the free version it does not have the ability for you to use the right click context menu scan for files that are compressed such as rar and zip files. I believe the next release will give free users the ability to use that function. That's something that's sorely lacking for the free users at this time, the ability to scan compressed files. May I suggest installing Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. It will scan for malware in compressed files using the context menu scan.

Thx Ritchie, I am already using anti-malware on my pc. Just one more thing, right now I do not have any anti virus on my pc as Avira makes my pc very slow, just depending on immunet to protect me from virus. How safe am I from any virus attack? Is it sufficient enough just to have Immunet working on pc.

Falcon, that depends if your using the free or the Plus (paid) version. The Plus version can be used as a very good stand alone anti-virus solution. If your using the free version I would recommend installing another anti-virus to complement Immunet. I use Panda Cloud Anti-virus Pro running along side of Immunet. There is a free version of Panda Cloud you can download and install at the link provided. The free versions of Panda and Immunet run "great" together. Plus Panda uses very little system resources so it shouldn't slow your system down like Avira Antivir did. Just like Immunet you don't have to worry about signature updates (as with traditional AV's like Avira) as the definitions are in the "cloud". That layered approach will definitely give you added protection against being infected. If Panda is not to your liking you could also try a traditional AV like Avast! or AVG but try Panda first and see what you think. Best wishes, ritchie58

Thanks again. As suggested I did install panda cloud antivirus, it installed properly but after restart my pc began to behave weirdly. Had to uninstall panda. Just one more query, since we share our pc on the cloud, is there any danger of our information being hacked.

 

Rgds,

Sorry you had problems with Panda. A few of my friends use the free version and so did I before upgrading to the Pro version and never had any problem with it. I know what the problem might have been. I had to add a couple of files that Panda uses into the Immunet exclusion list. I should have mentioned that to you and told you which files to add to the exclusion list. That's my fault that I forgot to tell you about that. As far as a hacker gaining access to your cloud connection, I have never heard of anyone running into such a situation.

I am not familiar with Kingsoft so I couldn't tell you one way or the other. Comodo Internet Security comes highly regarded. It gets great reviews at CNET's download.com. It's a security package that has a firewall and anti-virus. I use Comodo as my firewall and opted out of the antivirus since I already had Panda. If you try this and install the complete package turn off the Windows Firewall (I'm assuming your OS is Microsoft Windows) to avoid conflicts with running two firewalls. If this doesn't work out for you there is a chance your already infected with something. Some types of malware will screw up your current AV and keep any other AV you install from operating properly. That is a possibility.

Hi Falcon & Richie,

 

In last August (if I remember correctly) the Immunet staff said, that some features now available for PLUS members only, should be available in the FREE version as an X-mas present. Let see, if they will be found under the Christmas tree or not:

 

1. Scaaning of Archive files

2. Scanning of Packed files

3. Deep scan

 

Scanning of E.mails were not promised, though!

 

Cheers,

sweidre

It stands to reason that if free users were given the ability to use these features it would benefit the overall collective security of the whole community.

Right Ritchie,

The more features, that Immunet FREE will be provided with, the more Immunet FREE users will contribute in malware- detections up to the "cloud"! This will benefit all supporters, FREE- and PLUS- members alike!

Note, that a well- provided Immunet FREE product will add more malwares found to the cloud, when

1. Just being online and/or

2. Scanning offline

Cheers,

sweidre

PS. Unfortunately, Immunet FREE will then add to the number of "false positives" as well. Due to the strong heuristic engines of both Immunet PLUS & ClamAV! This is the bad side of the coin! DS.
