Reason Core Security Comments

Doing its job for the money

Positive Comment by ShubbyPRo
about Reason Core Security Jul 2016

Performs fast enough and the detection rate is quite high. Doesn't go into conflict with my other AV software.
I know it used to have such bugs a while ago but it seems like they have been fixed. Recommend!


Slow performance, high resource usage

Negative Comment by Forcefield
about Reason Core Security Feb 2016

I used it with Kaspersky Internet Security and didn't seem to be incompatible, but analyzing time was high, speed was really slow and everytime I opened a browser window it became very slow. Consumes up too much RAM, better use other security solutions.


Poor detection rate, false positives and leaves lots of traces upon uninstall

Negative Comment by enr00ted
about Reason Core Security Dec 2015

Be advised, if you are a former Unchecky user, then do not install this unless you are planning on keep using it. Once installed on your system it leaves some sort of traces or modification that will prevent you from going back to Unchecky stadalone.
