Some of you may aware that BOClean was bought by Comodo.
BOClean is an anti-malware program that was developed and
maintained by Kevin McAleavey and his wife Nancy. BOClean
is an effective program, it's not a scanner, it only does memory
resident protection, and does it very well.
Kevin has not abandoned his baby, he now works for Comodo and
continues his work with BOClean. For the first time ever, Comodo
has offered BOClean for free.
From what I have read, some folks don't like Comodo's AV but many
seem to like their firewall. Kevin has stated publicly that he will be the
one who continues the development of BOClean. Kevin and his wife
Nancy are good people, they had a very loyal customer base. I believe
Kevin's almost one man show got to be too much, especially with the
explosion of malware over the last few years. Now, he'll have more
resources and more help to ensure BOClean stays an effective anti-trojan.
In my opinion, BOClean is almost as good as Magnus Mischel's TrojanHunter.
Of course, others will swear BOClean is better.
I have BOClean installed on three WinXP machines and three Vista machines,
each of those computers also have NOD32 installed. I have not encountered
any problems with the BOClean installs nor any conflicts with NOD32.
Comodo also offers other free software. A firewall, an AV that is in beta, and
other stuff. I have not tried any of those, so I can't offer any advice. I don't
think the firewall or the AV are for Vista. But, BOClean works great on Vista,
more than likely, you won't even notice it doing anything... unless it gets a critter.
Anyway, I just wanted to let you guys know. http://www.comodo.com/boclean/boclean.html http://www.comodo.com/products/free_products.html
