What in the world? Is this a joke or what? Sounds like its a good idea at comprehensive intelligent antivirus but I have yet to hear a bout a "web-crawling" anti-virus yet....

Interesting. It should work quite well in theory (assuming how well Google's bots work, which is to say, quite well). Now only if some one could make an actual product using this tech.....

one would have to put quite a bit of trust into a company that releases these.. assuming they'd be allowed "crawl through" your firewalls and leave "cookies" all over your network.

I have my doubts knowing how things often pan out with over the self anti-virus programs and how they can barely measure up to every day threats when surfing even eBay much less any ware else. Not to mention the countless episodes of problems with mc afee causing problems with drivers failing to install or later become non-functional. Oh lets not forget about Norton it is no better than the filth it is supposed to keep out. Symantic (cringe) it is very non-entertaining when it blocks access to the internet, local network, and yet again problems with printers. So I think that this could just be another way for developers to get lazy with unoptimized code that increasingly wasteful on existing resources. Such practices have negated to a large degree of any advancement of new hardware. It should make one wonder when there are games like GTA IV that can even bring a CellBE cpu to it's knees.

So how do you disable these ants? Do you send out some form of 'virus' to find these ants, and will they see that as a threat to turn them off?

cool, I was waiting for this to happen - fight fire with fire.

hope what they say is true tho.

if there is one thing I hate more than having to install a resource hogging virus scanner, its having one infect my computer with out my consent!
