hmm i know that VNC is now picked up by a lot of virus scanners now because it is commonly used in payloads, though most will come up with it was a major threat but prompt for solution, we as somethink like sub7 is isntantly killed.

As for steghide, yeah i was blocked for that one to T_T, im thinking it has somethink to do with you being able to engolth malicios code into the files, since avast has picked me up on most of the binders that i use.

I've always used AVG and I've really liked it. It's very simple, it has real-time protection, and it's ALWAYS found software that I knew was bad (even when downloading zip files).

However, I'm always on the lookout for something better so when I built my new box I installed Avast. I used it for about 4 months or so and there's not much about it that I like. I just recently uninstalled it and switched back to AVG.
