IObit Security 360

Also trying IObit 360 out on my system now. I've got Vipre Anti Virus running, along with ThreatFire and now IObit and all seem to be working well together.

If anyone else is interested, it is freeware:

IObit Security 360 | Free Anti-malware | Free Download

*Note there is a Pro version with automatic updates, scheduled scans, etc.

It's anti malware - not anti virus. No problems running it with Vipre and ThreatFire.

Edit: For me, I see it like this:

Vipre: Anti virus and anti spyware.
IObit: Anti malware
ThreatFire: HIPS

Seems to work quite well...

Well, the only thing that changed on my system was IObit, and I had numerous times where things went pretty wonky here, including leaving my system on last night and when I turned on the monitor today, I could do nothing. Task Manager wouldn't start, couldn't restart from the menu, nothing. Had to do a hard reboot.

With that being said, IObit is gone. Not sure if it was their app or the combination, but I had no issues before with Vipre and TF running together at ll, so that's what I'm going back to.

Just a heads up to those that might try IObit.

I installed iobit 360 with vipre. however, when i installed threatfire alongwith these two, my pc was messed up. Just like you, i could not do anything. had to do a hard reboot and uninstalled threatfire... Also, when i tried malwarebytes with vipre, everything stucks and i had to do a hard reboot and uninstalled mbam to get things working. (I m talking about real-time protection in mbam.)
For now, i have iobit and vipre. Iobit 360 is very light on resources and detections are very high...

When TF gets the Firefox issue resolved though, are you going to try it again?

I like TF because it is very light (look at system resources - it's lighter than IObit 360) and it's free and updates automatically. IObit does not upate automatically in the free version, you have to update manually. It could be too late then...

I have posted the firefox issue in pctools forum and the developer said they know about it and will be fixed by the final release. Then i will surely use threatfire.

Yeah, I saw your post over there...

I thought I would try the same. Unloaded TF and going with IObit 360 for a bit. Let's see how it does. I think I like testing these things more than anything else. Gives me something to do...

Has anyone dealt with IOBIT Premium services? A few years ago I got caught up in Iyogi and will not go down that road again. Frankly, in calling IOBIT it sounded a lot like the same sales pitch, but thank goodness I didn't have to have him repeat himself 5 times. The service is in Houston. I...
