Exclamation Qihoo360 Antivirus questions

It seems that the test results on Real World Dynamic Product Test for Qihoo Antivirus at AV-Comparitives, has been nothing short of spectacular. It just came behind BitDefender, outsmarting Kaspersky and F-Secure.

Test Results - Real World Dynamic Product Tests May 2012

I read an article here, that Quihoo was released in 2009 and is said to be permanently free.

Here's the official English homepage: http://www.360safe.com/

Yes, I did read about that in certain other articles. But the dispute was between 360 Privacy Guard (anti-malware) and not their Antivirus. Whatever it was, I believe it's resolved now. Both are software giants at China and Quihoo has more than 400million users. Interestingly Tencent have been also evaluated at AV Comparitives in the test, but coming only behind Qihoo and certain other products.

this looks like a download link for it :S
http://translate.googleusercontent.c...zp97pLjv_OAu_w is translated

from what I can tell, it seems something like panda cloud or hitman using multiple scanning engines,

edit: i got it to installed, kind of runs :S sorry I can't read chinese so I'm pressing random buttons
edit: ugh, not sure if i'd recommend this, product "seems" fine, but since I can't read what I'm doing, I also had a hard time uninstalling it, kind of blind leading the blind, I eventually found a combination of buttons to press that uninstalled it, just trying to save people time if they don't know chinese

Thanks for the info and the download links eyeb. Man, how do you manage to get those links! hehe. It's definitely free and the way it works is just amazing, no wonder it's placed so high in the results, outsmarting even industry leaders. Too bad, there's no English version available. Guess I'll have to call it quits, until there's some English version available.

I am growing intrigued by this product. I have read a rather long chain or series of posts over at Wilder's. There are some people over there that are absolutely in love with this program. Apparently, it is quite light in spite of the fact that it uses 3 AV engines; including some type of "cloud".

It might be worth reviewing for our Best Free AV over at the main site.
