First, if I remember correctly, Immunet Protect uses the basic AVG scanning engine/definitions.. If you happen to be using AVG, it would be silly to install it and use up more resources.

Also, it seems to perform WORSE than AVG alone.. See the link below regarding a recent review of the product. Too many "Cons" for my taste.l

In combination with all that, it's been my experience that most antivirus companies direct users to install ONLY ONE antivirus as a time.. Two similar programs can cause conflicts when detecting and removing actual infections.

But sorry, because of the reasons above, I don't use the product.

Hope this helps.

I understand you are rigth about using more than one antivirus program. what called my attention was their "sales pitch about been complementary to your existing software plus the use of the cloud comunity as suport. now I see it was just a " sale strategie" I do belive on a global comunity to help users against this type of predatory companies. (sorry about my spelling,english's not my original lenguage Happy ) thanks

I see some replies were posted while I had to reboot before I could submit mine.

It seems to work well with the other AV on my computer
and I don't see anything "underhanded" about the way it is promoted.

"Promoted" Is The Key Term...

"You simply download the Imunnet software and then share it with your online community" are words directly from Immunet.. Click on the "Introduction to Immunet" button in the upper left of the link below:

http://www.immunet.com/main/index.html

Although there may be good intentions, this particular software seems to SPAM friends and neighbors of those who download and use the program.. Although not truly "underhanded", it goes out of it's way to attempt usage of their program.

But each to their own...

Hope this helps.

Chavivaus, thank you for explaining to answer my question.

I experienced the same result just now.

I agree, for it to not change status to Protected upon completion of scan
is misleading, reduces confidence or satisfaction with service.

I might ask Immunet about it, or post to their forum, if the status does not update as it has in the past.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
