    Re: spyware HELP ME

    You could try all kinds of free software to detect it. For free ones, you can try AVG Anti-Spyware, Ad-Aware, or Spybot.

    I hope that helps.

    Boot from Linux live CD, backup important data, reinstall windows, restore data.
    Don't mind me, I'm just roving the universe vacuuming up more knowledge for the archives

    Re: Anti-Virus Programs.

    Hi..

    According to me, AVG Antivirus is the best because it detects mostly all the Virus and delete that virus.
    AVG AntiVirus is really a nice antivirus i using it from last 2 years and because of that my PC run speedily....

    Re: Anti-Virus Programs.

    AVG is good yeah.

    Amongst freeware, the good antiviruses are:
    - Avira
    - Avast
    - Avast!
    - Comodo Suite's antivirus

    Avira is the best rated one(mostly since it's very light on your cmoputer i.e. doesn't take up lots of resources) although I find it kinda bothersome since it always asks you to upgrade to the paid version lol

    Among the paying kind the most popular ones are:
    - Norton(2009 and 360)
    - Nod32
    - Kapersky

    Norton used to be quite a resource hog, but since 2009 they've made some great advancements in their software. Nod32 is very light on your system so that's a plus. I personally think Kapersky is great since it not only looks at viral signatures, but obverses behavioral patterns to detect viral activity.

    No way did you forget about McAfee Security centre? I think that needs to go in the most popular ones that you need to pay for.

    I'm preety sure McAfee is more popular then Nod32 and Kapersky. Or am I mistaken? Hmm, but then again I am still surprised as no one has mentioned McAfee on this page. I used to have McAfee before Norton and it lasted for 3 years! Also with McAfee it's not a yearly subsription so you don't need to buy another one. It updates automatically.

    I have Norton now, it's okay that I have the Internet Security only and not the whole Norton 360 thing. You know how many problems that caused my laptop LOL It literally took me away from clicking on anything. " You need permission. Not allowed " I feared my laptop made a pact with the Security Centre and and agreed not to follow my input methods. LOL

    Re: Anti-Virus Programs.

    Well McAfee is mostly popular because it comes with most pre-made computers & laptops, but yeah, I should add it >.> I personally don't find it that good though.

    But then again, I find that antiviruses are more a case of "feeling secure" than actual utility. Viruses aren't really that common anymore and I haven't caught one in over 8 years I think lol Malware and other things are more common.

    Oh and I forgot A squared in the free ones since it can also act as an antivirus.

    Re: Anti-Virus Programs.

    Isn't Viruses, Trojans, etc all in Malware? Same here, I ain't got a virus for a very long time. Shit, it's better not to say that LOL I mostly get Trojans these days, what's the difference between Trojans and Viruses?

    Oh, I never ever download freeware security centres. I've never done it and I've heard it can easily be the total opposite. Some of my friends downloaded it and their computer was full of viruses, never take the risk. I'd rather pay £30 or £40 for Security Centre rather then pay £300 or £400 for a new laptop. LOL

    Re: Anti-Virus Programs.

    Yeah Malware is the general term. A Trojan is considered a virus yes. It refers to anything that goes in to take your system's info(usually to give it to some outside source). Mind you...
    Spoiler: stuff we shouldn't talk about show


    But yeah, the days of viruses are long gone. Unless you're just plain ignorant(i.e. you open every email and download anything without looking), then viruses shouldn't be much of a problem for you. Spyware and such are more common since they infiltrate your system through the internet sites you browse.

    Anyways, point to the matter is, security is nice, but it's mostly for the feeling of being secure. I've been using freeware for more than 10 years and I've never had any trouble. Trick is to be informed before you do anything.

    If anyone really wanted to mess with your computer, believe me, it'd be messed up regardless of what protection you have(unless maybe you had Python overlay encryption and 50 proxys lol ).

    Re: Anti-Virus Programs.

    Yeah like that guy who hacked into those US military computers. He hacked into like 90 of them and his reason was " to find alien info". A guy like him was able to hack into MILITARY COMPUTERS? More over AMERICAN MILITARTY COMPUTERS! And he wasn't old either, he was in his 30's.

    lol my friend who's 18 hacked into the Canadian Government system last year. This year, they revamped the system His excuse was "find a girl's email address" Good thing she wasn't creeped out or anything hehe

    Spoiler: more stuff we shouldn't talk about show


    Anyways we should probably stop speaking of this. I'm not advocating the use of this btw >.>
