    SecureAplus AV opinions?

    Posted this in another thread but it seems prudent to start a new thread about it :)

    Anyone here give SecureAplus a try? I like their application whitelisting mechanism and they claim to scan your files using many online AV engines. The only ding I see is their optional offline AV engine is ClamAV, which I would take Windows Defender over. You can choose not to install the offline AV component and install the AV of your choice alongside it.

    Some individuals over @ Neowin rave about it, so I may give it a go.

    ClamAV is about the worst AV in the world and this AV does not use anything for protection, it is supposed to be used just for whitelisting. It uploads files to virustotal and compares it, so you will need a good internet and CPU.

    ClamAV sucks no doubt. The whitelisting plus a good offline solution might be a good combo though. You can run the AV of your choice alongside it.
