I tryed Bitdefender Free, AVG Free, Panda Free, Kaspersky Free, Adaware Free, Avast Free and Sophos Free.
Avast looks for me as the best, most protection of all and you can choose what modules (eMail, Web, ...) you install.
Not a lot of advertising / propaganda (at the moment) 😉
The CPU Usage is low and RAM,... Ok.. all Programs need RAM but is ok. 😉
If you want to exclude some file types you have to add this exclusion in this way ?:\*.txt
Don't forget to remove the check mark from Chrome when starting the setup.
I have not installed the following modules; Web & Mail Shield, Software Updater (i use to many very old Apps), Browser Cleanup, WiFi inspector, ... Browser Extensions, Passwords and cleanup.

Also i have installed Immunet 7.02 with Network Monitoring, ETHOS and SPERO enabled, Programm start/Install, Blocking mode and ClamAV Engine is disabled.
The Folder "C:\Program Files\Immunet" i also exluded in Avast.

Yes, we're back to the old CPU cooling issue.
The enemy of the CPU is temperature fluctuations.
Cold, warm, hot ... up and down ... optimal cooling, which keeps the temperature constant at a certain value, would be the most pleasing to the CPU.

Hey all,

For a more "generic" way to start/stop Immunet, you can do the following (possibly only works in Windows 10, I haven't tried on earlier versions * ) :

Stopping Immunet

From the command line:

wmic service where "name like 'Immunet%'" call stopservice

or from a batch file:

wmic service where "name like 'Immunet%%'" call stopservice

(Re-)Starting Immunet

From the command line:

wmic service where "name like 'Immunet%'" call startservice

or from a batch file:

wmic service where "name like 'Immunet%%'" call startservice

The advantage of these is you don't need to know what version of Immunet you're using, so you don't need to work out the new service name after upgrades or edit any scripts you have.

I have a custom script that downloads some of the Securiteinfo, Sanesecurity and RFXN custom databases, stops Immunet, copies them to Immunet's "ClamAV" dir, and restarts Immunet. By identifying the "newest" ClamAV dir and using the more-generic way of stopping the service, my script doesn't need editing every time Immunet upgrades. For my case, this increases Immunet's static file detection rate from about ~75% to >95%.

I originally worked this out a while ago because I did a couple of upgrades where the Immunet service changed name from something like "ImmunetProtect" to "Immunet 6.0.4"

---

* I don't know much about Windows as I've been primarily a Unix/Solaris/GNU-Linux user for both work and play since the late 1990s. I only maintain a Windows installation for the tuning software that allows me to flash custom maps to my car's ECU.

  • Immunet Update does not work
  • ClamAV is outdated
  • Monitor Network Connections is removed from options
  • Quarantine Behavior is removed from options
  • No popup informations about virus detection, new updates, failed updates...
  • i've also sent the update issue to Cisco support

Two Weeks Later...
no thank you, no reactions, no informations


With Immunet 7.0.2 you had a really useful one
and resource-saving antivirus software provided free of charge.
In my opinion, the update to version 7.2.8 has made this product unusable and is now much more of a security problem.
I have never seen anything like it in 30 years.
Share the source code with the community, bury this project in your archives or whatever.

I know it's free but it doesn't matter.
Wikipedia told me how much profit you made, you also need something to make losses.

I hope you do not use Immunet for this...

It was not called PRO but PLUS and has not existed for years.

The last Immunet 7.3.0 (02.07.2030) has the same update problems on my computers and is still not using the current ClamAV engine.

It is sad.
Immunet was a beautiful and slim antivirus product without the ballast that other manufacturers use.
If Cisco continues like this, then it would be better to end this project immediately.

Everyone is entitled to there opinion Frank. What I would like to see is more input from some knowledgeable support staff helping users with there technical issues.

I'm the forum moderator for this site but I've been thrust into the role of doing the duties of a support person to the best of my abilities. I've been getting almost no help for over several months now! I have no clue as to why that's happening! The admin Rob T was a great help on the site but he's been M.I.A. since April.

That certainly isn't the first time this has happened in the years I've been doing this. "It does get 'rather frustrating' when I get no assistance at all on the site!!"

Are you getting paid for this job?
I've been reading from your comments for some time that it frustrates you.
If you don't get paid, you would quit as a moderator before it affects your health.
Otherwise, it may be time to think about further training to expand your professional future.

Have a nice day Frank

You made a great Job here Ritchie, you help a lot this community. Perhaps cisco doesn't have someone managing support of immunet. It seems when they have a free time they visit here to see what is going on.

Thanks for the encouraging words guys! "I do really appreciate it!"

It is rather obvious by now that Immunet is not getting the priority it once did by the Cisco/Sourcefire management.

I guess one can only hope that things will eventually improve and there is more input from the support staff.

Best wishes, Ritchie...
