Its a standard AV thats in beta. The product was aimed for Prevention VS Detection. I however wouldn’t use it until the final release is out then it should be very well. Because right now the Definitions, and Detection rates for viruses are quite low, compared to other AVs free and not, and the HIPS component isn’t even fully functional. CAVS 2 can’t prevent if the HIPs doesn’t work completely, its a bug that should have been fixed long ago, I think but the way its looking is that it isn’t going to get fixed until the final release, which is probably months away.
But how safe am I using CAV? I was using AVG AV, and after reading these posts I am back there again.
I would love to use a Beta and test it out, but not if it leaves me exposed badly. I know you should not use two AV programmes at the same time, but if there was any shred of AVG AV left on my PC, running MY PC just kept crashing when I tried to use CAV 2 beta.
Sorry. I am not “attacking”. I am disappointed that I seem unable to join in the testing of a programme that will be offered free. The CA FW is great!
I know they will fix it, I think that HIPS should be fixed NOW though. The final release is MONTHS away and with out it working 100% you cant be at the highest peak of protection with it, and plus the definitions are terrible.
They fixed some other major bugs with CAVS and I don’t see what they didn’t just fix HIPS in 2.0. :-\ ???
