Most of us will agree that unfortunately there is no single software that we can rely on to provide 100% protection against every malware, rootkit, virus or whatever. As I have mentioned before, I use a variety of online tools to help in keeping my system bug free. I also change the software I use and with this in mind, used Previx 3.0 for this months scan.

Previx 3.0 is a small download under 800kb in size. The installation is quick and easy. The software itself is a no brainer to run. However, there are some limitations you should be aware of. The trialware is time limited and runs in “detection-only” mode. This basically means it will identify malware if present but won’t remove it. Which is fine for the purpose I used the software for.

Previx 3.0 scanned my system quickly, about 5 minutes, and as I expected found nothing on my system. Which brings up something else we all should be aware of. If you scan your system, using any malware software, and it determines that a bug is on your system it could be a false positive. Previx 3.0 does not work well with Alcohol 120% and will report the software as a critter.

While most malware software depends on a large detection database which needs to be updated constantly, Previx 3.0 is different. It uses a behavior profile to determine if something bad is happening on your system.

Previx 3.0 is just another tool to use in your arsenal to keep you PC bug free.

Comments welcome.
