The UX of Threatfire

I switched over to Threatfire for my anti-virus/malware protection.  I had been an evangelist for Avast for quite some time, but the registration process was just a little too annoying.  It seemed that every time I turned around, I had to re-register.  I have alot of computers that I take care of (friends/family) so it all adds up.  SO far, Threatfire has been a good experience.  Quick to install, UI seems simple.  I haven’t been infected yet, but that doesn’t mean much.

Memory for me on Windows 7 seems really low.  It’s about 4 megs.  Very nice.  When you launch the GUI it loads a separate process using 16megs.  I configured it to scan at night, so we will see what it says.

Overall, I am pleased.  All of this goodwill goes away if I get infected, but until then, Thumbs Up for Threatfire.
