ThreatFire AntiVirus Free Edition

ThreatFire provides real-time prevention of viruses and malware infections by identifying suspicious behavior ("zero-day" events) as is the case, before the malicious code is installed on your PC. Formerly known as CyberHawk, ThreatFire has made some notable improvements and drama since it was purchased by PC Tools.

ThreatFire looking for rootkits, heuristic-based threats, viruses, worms, Trojans, spyware, adware, key loggers, and buffer overflows. Software protection in real time not significantly slow down our computer and customizable advanced settings were excellent. Users can pick and choose their preferred processes of trust and creating rules for detection, such as scanning for SCR files created by an email client. You also can take advantage of the scheduler, and create a system restore point before moving threats into quarantine. The IntelliScan took about 15 minutes on our machine, but we do not fit into the scan mode. We can still check out other panels at the interface of ThreatFire.

The only problem we found was that sometimes the threats could be detected, but no name tag. This made it difficult to determine whether they were true or false positives. ThreatFire has improved markedly, however, and working as a complement to your currently installed antivirus should be considered a serious instrument of protection.
