Hi Dominic,


The big answer to your question is: Never is good to have 2 antivirus software running in the same machine, creates conflicts

and false positive.


From my personal side, If you have a "lack of faith" on your antivirus software perhaps isn't matter what you will use.

  To solve this particular "problem" you have to add another layer of security, that means: you.


   You have to use a policy about security when you surf Internet, run a software, etc. Like download programs before

   run have to be scan by antivirus, uploaded to VirusTotal, check the hash, test in a virtual machine with no-internet

   connection, etc, etc.


There is no 100% antivirus effective, so you have to complete the equation:

Antivirus software + software installed up-to-date+you taking caution = probability of infection reduced to a minimum. :)

Hello Dominic. I have not used it (so I cannot pass judgement on it), but I know there is a thread on it over at Wilders.




Also BleepingComputer has info. hxxp://www.bleepingcomputer.com/search/?cx=partner-pub-0920899300397823%3A3529943228&cof=FORID%3A10&ie=UTF-8&q=Heimdal


Hopefully one of the ESET Moderators will have a thought on it.


Good luck.
