Solution9, formerly known as Element Anti-Virus, is an antivirus software and Personal firewall package made by the software house, Strayspark Lab (Formerly Element Software UK LLC). Element Anti-Virus is aimed primarily at home use for Microsoft Windows operating systems.[1][2][3] [4][5][6]

Collective Intelligence[edit]

As of version 6.0 (2012), a feature known as Collective Intelligence was introduced into the product with the use of a back-end server technology known as the Element Software Network or ESNet. This technology, when enabled in the product, collects suspicious files and sends its statistics using MD5 patterns to a central database where they can be reviewed commonly. Due to privacy concerns, however, it is disabled by default. With this technology, a 'trace' can be made on malware origins and can flag commonly found malicious software on a client machine via a World Map.[7]

Network Intrusion Prevention[edit]

As of version 6.0 (2012), a personal firewall solution and Network Topology analysis software was introduced into the product along with a packet tracer and analyzer for further administrative use.[8]


As confirmed on the company's Twitter account and re-launched website, Solution9 from StraySpark will be replacing Element Anti-Virus and will be one of the first antimalware solutions to use a hypervisor by means of security on a real operating environment.
