I said before that it adds 6 minutes to start up. well, with each restart, I'm seeing lesser and lesser added time. from an additional 6 minutes, after three restarts, it's now down to a minute and a half. surprising. I'm testing to see if it still works offline. Will update ASAP. Right now, I'm collecting as much malware as possible. I have around 3000 now. Oh and it got a perfect score on Spycar tests. As for EICAR, it doesn't detect it when downloaded on https protocol (though it gets locked). So I guess it does work offline. Let's see it's detection rate offline.
I collected 6000+ malware samples and ran them all. Then something weird happened. First, Bitdefender quarantined 48 files. Then the remainder of files could not be launched because I don't have "sufficient rights". I thought maybe because I was using WTF. So then I rebooted, ran Revo Uninstaller to record whatever change will happen and ran the virus and in addition, ran them as admin... Strangely enough, none of them launched. Looking at BD, it was scanning them, but not reporting any detection. Afterwards, I rebooted again and tried running them. This time, it says it's corrupt. Strange. I don't know if it was BD or not.
In any case, the startup time shows no impact. No running malware found. BD detected some things in the temporary folder (i.e better world or something like that) and was to clean them after a reboot (but I did for it what it planned to do and cleaned it using CCleaner).
Meh. I don't know what happened, but none of the 6000 ran though I'm quite sure they were working the last time I tested them using panda, avast and Emsisoft. But the beautiful thing is this: I wanted to see if I could get it to crash as was the case with avast and panda. Surprisingly, no. And not only that. The system was working...smoothly... it felt as if it wasn't even scanning. Peering over the task manager however, it was using a little over 211 MB or memory for both processes. This is a first for me and I am taken aback.
Verdict: I have little to say with its detection rate due to complications and doubtful results. But the way it works is simply elegant, smooth and amazing. If it were anything, this could be the next standard for antiviruses. Absolutely fast, silent and intelligent. I think I'm starting to fall in love. I'll keep on testing this for a month or so. See if I could find something wrong with it.
Anyone who'd like to test it, please do tell me the results. Languy did a test, but I want to see how well it does offline.
Alright then. Good day.
