"... it missed quite a few viruses. It's disappointing that you won't be fully protected on the web. ... you have a wide range of predefined scans to choose from and a custom one. There are lots of settings to tweak if you're an expert. AVG Free offers more features, and AntiVir doesn't flag Google results as safe/unsafe for example, so sadly it's not recommended."

ExpertReviews commented that the latest version of this software performs much better than last year's, though they say they still can't recommend it. While it features a much improved user-interface and performed better in their tests, reviewers felt that it's still outmatched by other antivirus programs, one of which is also available for free.
