Anybody tried MalAware (a-squared little brother) >
The basic idea behind MalAware was to create build the smallest possible (1 mb) and the fastest possible malware scanner (scan <1 min) that will only provide an indication of whether a PC is infected with malware or not

Hmmmm, im not sure I like this tool myself, it seems to be a marketing gimmic to me, Its certainly small and certainly quick but I ran the tool on my own system and got the following message below.


To be honest, for me, I feel there are better tools that will provide indications towards infection such as DDS / RSIT / HJT, but on saying that, such tools are no good to the average user and to the untrained eye the logs will appear nonsense to them. MalAware may be good for some people but it would not be my tool of choice.

Ive heard a few good things about Vipre from others too but as yet I have not tried it. I keep saying to myself I will have to stick it on a VM to take a look it. Im currently running Kaspersky through a good deal I got with it and so far im happy with the protection it provides. :)
