for those who use SpyBot's IMMUNIZATION feature --- which, in my opinion, is the main reason for "average" users [XP and earlier] to keep around SpyBot nowadays --- be sure to RE-immunize after updating.

Free Internet Security - WOT Web of Trust       Use OpenDNS       MalwareBytes Anti-Malware


Windows 7 Pro SP1 (64-bit), avast! v17 Free, MBAM3 Pro, Windows Firewall, OpenDNS Family Shield, SpywareBlaster, MVPS HOSTS file, MBAE Premium, MCShield, WinPatrol PLUS, SAS (on-demand scanner), Zemana AntiLogger Free, IE11 & Firefox (both using WOT [IE set to WARN, FF set to BLOCK]), uBlock Origin, CryptoPrevent.


[I believe computer-users who sandbox (Sandboxie) are acting prudently.]

a-squared Free 4.0 final is available!


What's new in a-squared Free 4.0?

  • We have added a second scan engine for the Scanner. The second engine comes from our partner, the famous Austrian antivirus company Ikarus, and is a pure antivirus engine. We expect much better detection rates with the dual engine mode. Compared with two standalone programs, the performance and memory usage of our bundled version is much better because we were able to combine them on a very low level and remove not necessary double signatures to save ressources.

  • We have improved the a-squared scan engine: It loads 57% faster, uses 30% less RAM and scans 4% faster than v3.x.

  • The graphical user interface (GUI) has been refreshed completely. A new menu item for Quarantine and Update Logging has been added too.

  • Beyond that, we've added tons of minor tweaks and improvements to create a better usability.

    To get the new 4.0 version, you can run an online update from an older version installation or download the latest setup file from the website.
  •  

    All product information is available on the a-squared Free page:

    Note: a-squared Free 4.0 supports Windows XP, 2003/2008 Server and Vista. It does no longer run on Windows 98, ME and 2000.
