Summary: It earns a VB100 ranking from Virus Bulletin, too. Testers at PCMag.com and CNET's Download.com are equally impressed. Both name it a top pick. However, few owners have rated this brand-new software yet, and the few who have reviewed it at Download.com give it mixed marks (usually saying it's too slow).
