PC Tools is now owned by Symantec, so I would expect their software to perform about the same as Norton Anti Virus.

I am assuming that the file linked to in this article is just a stub to download the remainder of the program, since it's only 4MB in size.

I really wish bogus software like this wouldnt be posted on Neowin

VB proactive detection test shows something else; PC TOOLS SD and Internet Security 80%. Since PC Tools AntiVirus Free share the same av definitions together with SD and PC Tools Internet Security it shouldn't be so bad.
