What to do with a DetectX advisory




Thank you for the address to use for my DetectX question.

Do the experts here recommend using DetectX on an ongoing basis?

I went many years without using any “anti-virus” software but then started using ClamXAV about a year ago and then DetectX for this specific problem when always seeing “searchpulse” in the search window.

Thank you.

There’s really no downside to using DetectX Swift at the moment. It’s free (although v2.0 will be a paid upgrade). Doesn’t run any kernel extension or background activity. You just need to remember to run it when you see something weird going on or periodically if desired.

Thank you very much for the information about DetectX. Much appreciated.
