Free Multiple engine AV console scanner

This lovely tool lets you use the scan engines and databases of the following AV’s.

Of course you get no real-time shield, but the combined removal abilities are great, as the names should speak for themselves:


And, for those who miss their AOL AV…:


Yeah, right…!

Remember it’s a console tool not offering the comfort of the above mentioned GUI versions.

But it works great… Just read the included pdf file on how to use it.



Cheers and stay protected

hey dude, da site is at Dutch , is it?

da tool better uses databases of free AVs.

freebie luvers can never use it.

Pls update if it can utilize free AVs.

No, the site is Swiss German,

and since no one ever complained about using AOL AV, I am surprised you don’t like it.

The included PDF states that it is neither Freeware nor Ad/Spy or anything ware, but CareWare.

It’s a functioning security prog with no evil inside, so download it, think about it, and THEN post your assumptions!


With lovely remembers

Great tool, very useful (and above all free)!! ;D

Thanks for your report. :slight_smile:


so for freebie user, dis tool is like a console add-in for AOL AV ?

Well, if you can think of the former AOL AV as being a crippled KAV, well yes, then you can consider this tool as some kind of console version (just detection and removal, preferrably in safe mode) of your “AOL AV freebie” (with no realtime AV shields included, of course).

Yet, it not only uses the KAV engine and database to scan and remove, but also three other well known and trustworthy AV engines/databases (Sophos, TrendMicro and McAfee).

I really don’t get it what problem you seem to have with your “freebie” definition thing, sorry [ at ] aladinonl

This multi AV scanner is free to download and use, and it doesn’t contain any kind of nagware, malware, spyware, adware, or whatyouhavenot. It is branded as CAREWARE, not even e-mailware or cardware…

And it’s obviously the most reliable “safe mode” AV scanner / Virus removal tool one can imagine at this moment.

btw it works on the following systems: Windows 2000, Windows 9x, Windows NT 4.0, Windows XP

Re-think on it [ at ] aladinonl, and thanks for your kind approval [ at ] yeiazel!

Here’s the main site (Swiss German only), but the program itself, and all included readme and pdf files are English only. (The programmer being David Lipman, United States, to let you know.)


In case you shouldn’t know what Careware is all about, well, here is just one of many lovely definitions. (Yes, it’s a rather philosophical topic…)

I never saw a wild thing
Sorry for itself.
A small bird will drop frozen dead
From a bough
Without ever having felt sorry for itself.

— D. H. Lawrence

Even though this page has a big, impressive title, it is about a simple idea which I hope I can convey in a few words. Here are the main points:

* Economic principles lie behind many more human activities than most of us realize. We are almost constantly exchanging something for something else.
* Many economic transactions don't involve money. In traditional societies, and sometimes even this one, people trade using favors, influence, even pure ideas, instead of money.
* Sometimes money is not the best way to convey value. And sometimes money is so completely inappropriate that it destroys the transaction . CareWare is one of those transactions.
* CareWare * doesn't involve money, but it is a transaction nevertheless. Something is delivered, something is received. Adam Smith's invisible economic hand moves through the CareWare economy just like everywhere else. I can't ask for something more than I am giving, but I can ask for an appropriate exchange.

In CareWare, * the “buyer” gets something of value in exchange for something the “seller” wants. And what does the seller want? The general answer is “Anything except money,” but I prefer the really remarkable transactions, which you recognize instinctively when you see them.

Here is an example — here is a hypothetical transaction between myself and you. I have a program called “Arachnophilia” which is a rather nice Web page editor and workshop, but I don’t want your money in exchange, I want something else. So I say “This is what I am offering, and here is what I want in return.” Simple, right? I have been doing this for a little while now, and the responses have been very interesting. Many people think I have religious beliefs — I don’t, at least not religious beliefs recognizable by a person of normal intellectual gifts. Others try to push the transaction in a more traditional direction for one reason or another — I recently received this message:

                Careware,eh? A small price to pay for such a
                great software package. My pen quivers over my
                checkbook in case you change your mind.

This response could arise from any number of causes, and bartering about the medium as well as the size of the payment is a normal part of economic transactions, so maybe I am picking on this particular correspondent a little. But the funny part is CareWare is by no means a small price to pay .

For example, here is a payment I will accept for a copy of Arachnophilia –

To own Arachnophilia, I ask that you stop whining about how hard your life is, at least for a while. When Americans whine, nearly everybody else in the world laughs. We have so much, and yet we manage to:

* Overlook great examples of beauty around us,
* Miss our most important opportunities,
* Manage to make ourselves miserable by expecting something even better to come along.

Every time we whine about how tough we have it, apart from the fact that we look ridiculous, we make it harder for people around us to appreciate how much we have. We encourage people to overlook the things we do have, the gifts of man and nature. We provide a context to dismiss everything as not good enough, to be miserable in the midst of plenty.

Don’t get the wrong impression — many things are unjust, things that should be struggled against until they are made right. This page is for people who can’t find even one thing to take joy in, to appreciate. These people not only make themselves miserable, but they infect others with the attitude that the world should right itself, by itself, before they will take simple pleasure in anything.

So here is my deal: stop whining for an hour, a day, a week, your choice, and you will have earned your copy of Arachnophilia. Say encouraging words to young people, make them feel welcome on the planet Earth (many do not). Show by example that we don’t need all we have in order to be happy and productive.

I really think the author of this definition is definitely an interesting human being, to say the least…

I really do encourage you to read further here:

Btw, I’d really like to encourage Melih to offer some (not all) COMODO products such as CPF and CBO as cost-free Charity-Ware and/or Careware. Just for the simple reason to not let die this great thought.

Maybe COMODO could, or can help to bring back to everyone’s mind the Charity/Care Ware thought again? Don’t really know, still, would be great, and, for sure, would be a rather individual way of advertising one’s future products…

Cheers friends
