Roboscan internet security


Eli

Recommended Posts

Hi

I have roboscan internet security installed in my system, and I found out that all its folders takes 2.93 Gigs disk space!  It does not make any sense to me, does it to you? Does any of you uses this program and can check its disk space please?

Thanks

That is an awful lot of disk space.

 

When you look in the RIS folder which files have the largest size?

 

You will have to set your PC to show file extensions.

Ok, a little change: since I have two operating sys I have it installed twice but still under the main OS it still got 1.95Gigs.

Hi Hazelnut I`m using everything search engine, that shows hidden files as well.

The most heavy: rsrtsrv.rse.dmp, and plugin folder.

Perhaps contact Roboscan directly Eli and let us know what they say about the size of those files.

May be panda cloud based AV be lighter? If yes, being cloud based makes it more opened to threats from it?

Hi, Eli.  :)

Fwiw, this desktop is very similar to the description in your signature.

I'm using Avast & Outpost firewall (an old version) & Sandboxie & Powershadow. 

Works very well. 

Just sayin'.  

The CCleaner SLIM version is always released a bit after any new version; when it is it will be HERE :-)

Pssssst: ... It isn't really a cloud. Its a bunch of big, giant servers.

It's been renamed to Panda Free Antivirus. Being "cloud" based does not make it more open to threats but instead the opposite, it's actually faster to respond to any threats because it is cloud-based with a much faster response time to those threats versus having to download a set of definition files - although with that said it does have a basic set of definition files that it will store on your computer. The one thing I liked about it was it didn't need daily definition files.

 

I liked it allot but had to get rid of it when it would annoy me every few minutes to buy a pro license - it's only suppose to do that about once per week. One thing though is a complete system scan with it is rather slow on WinXP (in my case about 2 hours 5 minutes every time), which is why when I had it I'd only do a complete system scan once per month.

Ok so I`m going to get rid of Roboscan since they even did not bother to answer and go for a panda ride.

So far, I don`t feel Panda`s presence ...very low on resources [didn`t try the deep scan yet] and the disk space it takes is about a one third of roboscan`s space, nevertheless, I would expect it to have even less, since it does not have to collect daily signatures like a regular AV.

I kind of thought that too when I first ever started using it, although in the free version it does have all the pro version abilities pre-installed so they can be activated if purchasing a license. However the size really doesn't change that much in it meaning the next time you defrag the antivirus won't be the culprit for having the most fragmented files. I guess we have to expect a modern antivirus to contain a few hundred MB when installed, regardless if it's cloud-based.
