    Although I have clients that LOVE iObit, and all of their products seem to work very well, I never recommend it for folks who have something to lose - as in intellectual property. It seems iObit is...

    Generally to make the claim that AV is good enough for malware, just doesn't hold up well in my honeypot lab. However if there ever were two that come close, which first is ESET's NOD32, and second...
