I got an e-newletter this morning from Cnet.downloads with an announcement about the EAV free AV suite, but i can't seem to find any independent reviews of the software. There are reviews on CNET and ZDNet, but these are not by actual users (with a couple of exceptions). I just wondered if any of you have tried it and what your impression of it is. Thanks.

Haven't heard of it before - but it's a "suite" of apps. Just like Norton, McAfee, etc
Also, I couldn't get to their home page - it may just be down for a bit, but that's not a good sign. What if it happens when you're trying to get an update?
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

No John. I haven't downloaded it yet; so, I don't know about update. But I thought that since Cnet recommended it, it might be ok. But until I hear from someone who has used it, I am not going to take the plunge. I have Nod32 on 2 or my computers now and Avast on the 3rd one.

Unless you demand a complete suite, there are several good, free, AVs that have been used by many Members. For something as critical as an anti-virus application, I would not take a chance on a new or untried product.

Here is what McAfee Site Advisor had to say about http://www.your-soft.com/

Lit up like a Xmas tree!!

“Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded and the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics...you are all stardust.”Lawrence M. Krauss

My apologies,I was thinking it was Eset Antivirus. :thumbsup: Hi buddy215,It got your McAfee Site Advisor in the Xmas spirit and that means the real link wasn't good at all.Thanks for clearing that up for me.
