abosolutely hopeless antivirus IMHO. try googling quickheal antivirus review and you may learn some of the problems. one of the worst i have found is that it deletes all visual basic 6 executables compressed with UPX32, how hopeless is that ??!? it will not even inform you !! UPX is a world class executable compressor and Visual Basic. that is just one of the problems. if you search you will find a ton of them.
