"Simple and effective.."

Pros:  simple to use, easy interface, good at removing stubborn malware, daily updates.

Cons:  a little heavy, slow full scan, updates can be bumpy..

Other Thoughts:  I have been using the full version for years now and overall its still a good program. There are some areas it can improve on, full scans take time in just under a hour and its realtime protection can often be weak, it does make up for it in removing malware which it does very well.

I have also noticed it can be disabled by certain types of malware and requires installing it again, to tackle this there is a new feature called Chameleon.

Updates can be rough sometimes so I reduced it to daily, it seems to hog a lot of cpu during updates.

The interface is as basic and easy as you can get but its a no frills malware killing program so no big deal. A few more advanced features would be handy along with some tweaks to realtime protection. Overall its still a iconic, decent program and well worth the money.
