I've got some extra notes in there about G Data:

Couple of other side notes. G Data was a huge download, and was the only one that required a reboot after install as well as a reboot after updating. What a pain. It did really well though, although it did also give me a prompt when downloading and installing MBAM (looked like some sort of HIPS prompt), so I'm not sure if it was prompting for just about everything, or it truly was doing as well as it did.

Well, it's not my Shadow Defender. I simply like and use the product. Why didn't you like it? Works perfectly for me every time.

the impression from the info on the site is that you do everything in virtual mode then decide what you do and do not want to keep. rollbackrx is more like the system restore that comes with windows. you launch it pick a restore point and it restarts the system and does the restore. i started using it because more times than not to get the windows system restore to work i would have to go into safe mode and run it. if i could not get into safe mode i was out of luck. with rollbackrx i cannot get into windows or windows safe mode i can just enter the rollbackrx command console prior to windows booting, no need to try to get into safe mode.

Right, which is exactly what Shadow Defender is and claims to do. It does it very well and allows me to actually test things in a "virtual" environment without issue. It works very well.

Also, you can tell it to leave certain folders alone and any downloads for example, you can store there if you want to keep them while surfing.

It's also a great tool to allow you to install something and test to make sure all is fine. If not, you can simply reboot and it's gone. Or, if everything is fine, you can reboot, stay out of shadow mode and install the program to keep.

OK I tested few malware links today with ESET. Out of 8, it detected 7 malware. It missed 1. Then I tested Hitman Pro. It detected 4 out of 4.

Edit: found 2 new malware. Only 4 AV have been able to detect them. Beware!

Hey Dinesh, how could Hitman Pro detect the links? There is no realtime protection with Hitman Pro.

It didnt detect the links. I downloaded the files without any AV. Then scanned my PC with Hitman.

EDIT: A best feature of Hitman Pro is to hold the left CTRL key and then open Hitman Pro. It will forcefully end useless processes (including Explorer.exe). Its useful when the system is badly infected.

Ah, so an after the fact test, not really a link test as with ESET that you did...
