Coranti – Multiple scanning engine (4-in-1) Antivirus

Years of research and testing by security companies and independent testers alike have taught us that a single anti-virus software is incapable of detecting all virus and malware out loose in the wild. All anti-virus scanners are blind to a small percentage of malware, but given the astronomical number of worms and viruses crawling through the interwebs, even that small percentage adds up to a couple of hundreds.

A solution often recommended is to scan a file using multiple anti-virus scanners so that the possibility of failure to detect is minimial. Online anti-virus scanners like VirusTotal employs this approach. It uses multiple virus scanners to scan files uploaded to the site that dramatically increases the detection rate.

This multiple anti-virus scanning feature is brought to the desktop by Coranti 2010 Multi-Core Anti-Virus & Anti-Spyware, that employs not one or two but 4 different anti-malware scanning engines - Bitdefender, F Prot, Norman, and Lavasoft anti-spyware.


Coranti 2010’s four scan engines working in parallel and therefore, offers four times the protection. Unlike most traditional PC security suites, Coranti 2010 is compatible with many third-party antivirus, anti-spyware and firewall solutions. This unique element makes it possible to install Coranti without uninstalling the anti-virus software currently installed on the machine. However, there are exceptions – Coranti is not compatible with AVG, ESET Nod32, Trend Micro Internet Security, and Zone Alarm.

This isn’t the first time a security software has tried to merge multiple scanning engines into one. G-Data has done it before with two scanners - BitDefender and Avast, and racked up an impressive 99.95% detection rate beating all others in a test conducted by PCWorld on November 2009. I wouldn’t be surprised if Coranti shows similar results.

Coranti 2010 is in beta stages and a 30 day trial version is available for download. The installer is around 21 MB, but after installation it downloads updates and program components worth 250 MB.

How to Record CPU and Memory Usage Over Time in Windows?

Whenever the computer is lagging or some application is taking too long to respond, we usually fire up task manager and look under the Performance tab or under Processes to check on processor utilization or the amount of free memory available. The task manager is ideal for real-time analysis of CPU and memory utilization. It even displays a short history of CPU utilization in the form of a graph.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event.

However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
