  1. This program does what it says it does, its like CCleaner on steroids. I've tried it several times with no issues. Some find it overly aggressive though, in other words it may remove something that it shouldn't have such as a needed registry item. I wouldn't use it unless you are experienced enough to determine if a certain item should or should not be removed safely. In other words don't run this program blindly and delete everything it asks to. Safer option is CCleaner, best option is built in Windows tools.
  2. On the left hand side click on "Reports". Find the report for the scan you did, double click it, a box should pop up, click on the "Advanced" tab, all the info you need should be in there.
  3. Just enter your id and key numbers in your installed version of MB3 and you should be good to go. Usually exclusion aren't needed, Defender and MB3 work well together. You should use this setting though:
  4. There shouldn't be any issues using McAfee and MB3 together on your computer. I cannot comment on using MB3 for Android as I do not use it on my phone but it would not be a bad idea if you are not using anything else. Worse comes to worse you may have to set exclusions on your desktop if issues arise, it that occurs just post back here and someone can provide help.
  5. Assume everyone will eventually get breached, your bank, IRS, ebay,Twitter etc. If you want to protect yourself lmit the amount of data you put online, other than that just assume that your data will be out there one day. Its a sad story. I don't worry about it, I'll deal with it when the time ever comes, cross my fingers.
  6. If anyone is interested, I installed in Sandboxie and only things I could see is it tries to install McAfee Web Advisor and Opera. A scan with MB3 and Emsisoft after install did not pick up anything.
  7. I was just throwing out some ideas, it all likelyhood none of them are practical for his situation.
  8. Just thinking out loud here. You could try MCSheild, it hasn't been updated for a while but still works well on W10. Use a sandbox such as Sandboxie, its free and nothing will get by it if set up properly, however if the students need to save any work it will need to be committed to the disc which will just infect the computer anyways I believe. LIght virtulization tools such as Toolwiz Time Freeze (free) or Rollback RX (paid). Lastly. Shadow Defender, probably too costly for a school setting but it also works very well, basically anything done to the computer can be un-done with a reboot. You would have to research these to see if any may work for you under the conditions in which the computers are used, alternatively, a good anti-virus may do the trick as well. If it was my class I just wouldn't let them use the computers until they were educated and informed in safe computer practises. Maybe you could use just one computer that would only be used to scan their flashdrives, set up a couple programs such as Eset Online Scanner and Emsisoft Emergency kit and just let them know that no flashdrives go into the regular computers until they are scanned first.
  9. Not sure what you bought as your link won't work, at least not for me.
  10. Simple fix that may work, try restarting your computer. Or you could uninstall and reinstall, if neither of these work just provide the logs mentioned in the post above.
  11. I get your points Exile, I also agree that for the average user the best protection is one that allows for the fewest decisions to be made by them. The training period is about 10 minutes. I seem to recall that I had far less pop-ups using VS than for any HIPS I have tried. Here is a quote from the developer " There is only one thing to keep in mind when using VoodooShield... If VoodooShield blocks something that you would like to run, then allow it after it is automatically scanned. Otherwise, if VoodooShield blocks something out of the blue, then just ignore it and assume it was a virus or malware.
