Is ThreatFire a good Anti-virus program?

It's not an antivirus, it's a behavior blocker. It's designed to supplement your anti-virus and whatever antispyware programs you have. I would highly recommend it if you don't have a similar program or a HIPS doing the same thing.

Quite right.

 

To add on, the latest TF free adds the following though

 

"On-demand antivirus scanner now available in ThreatFire free edition

An on-demand antivirus scanner is now available in both ThreatFire Free as well as ThreatFire Pro."

Although the above is correct, it's interesting that the MS security centre recognizes TF as an antivirus.

I believe as part of its behaviour blocking characteristics, it does scan files against the AV database prior to making a decision as to whether to alert or not.
