Hi malware fighters,

You av solution doesn't detect "all them malware" (maybe 90%-95% of the present malware assortment, but not 100%, it never will); you do not want the remainder to go undetected.

By providing a fast and light layer of virus detection and linking everyone in a global community we harness a security sum that is far greater than its individual parts, we call this Collective Immunity.

Community Based Protection
Cloud Computing
Collective Intelligence

Immunet Protect gathers strength daily as the Immunet Community grows and best of all its FREE. Already have AntiVirus? Even better, install Immunet Protect alongside your existing product, and it will make the Immunet community even stronger,

This does not mean that you should not also use layered protection, in-browser protection and update and fully patch your Operational System and third party software (use Secunia PSI), use your machine with less rights when not downloading updates and when you absolutely cannot do without full admin rights,

Anyway I am glad Immunet Protect is now supporting avast, look at my active window pic,

Who else has Immunet Protect "in the cloud-av layer" in combination with avast?

I just downloaded, installed it, and ran the first scan which took 1 minute & 18 seconds.
There are 18, 216 users when it installed.

I will see how it goes with a dial-up connection.

Hi YoKenny,

Maybe you haven't installed the latest version. Only that plays ball with avast,

This software looks very much like Threatfire so the real question is which software preform better Immunet Protect or Threatfire ??? ???

I've already had the latest version of Threatfire on my PC and I'm not sure about Immunet Protect.

Thankfully, I can not tell that Immunet is running on dial-up but it is and there are no bad files listed, of course.   :)
