  1. What happened to all of my posts Thanks for all of your discussion. People can now know which AV is more popular out of the two, and whether either of them are any good at all. Keep posting! Regards, Comprev
  2. There are other great antivirus programs out there, like avast! Avast is free, and, unlike MBAM (no complaint intended), it offers real-time protection with its free version. CNET says that it is their most recommended AV solution on the market. MSE looks like it has good protection (I don't have it-I can't be a complete judge). MBAM's free version is enough to pull malware out of the computer, but it has no free real-time protection and set scheduling without program purchase. It is still a great program, and it saved one of my computers twice from bad rogues (XP Internet Security and An
  3. Looks like Norton is the winner. However, 54.55% of voters seem to think that they are both terrible anti-virus solutions. 36.36% of people think that Norton is the best, and 9.09% seem to think that they are both good. All voters seem to have decided; no "IDK's" or "one seems better". Poor McAfee seems to be unpopular at the moment... It used to be the best AV program, and now no one cares about it However, don't be too unfair to McAfee-SiteAdvisor and WOT are probably the best site reviewers. Thanks everyone Regards to all, Comprev
  4. Those others are the last for today that I will comment on It means overall. What do you think was the best for you? Consider protection, performance, and system integration. Factor price into it as well. Thanks, Comprev
  5. I agree. I have only used McAfee. I am not sure about its detection capabilities, but it is extremely annoying, especially when you are watching a video on full screen. Avast is probably better than both of them. Plus, it is free. Thanks, Comprev
  6. It would have been a good idea if I had put 'both okay" or "other". What did you pick? Comprev
  7. Read my reply to Goldhound-they both had their times around three years ago. From what CNET reviewers think, there are better antivirus solutions out there. Thanks to all of the replies. I will release the result of the polls every Friday. Thanks for participating, Comprev
  8. My antivirus software is avast! free antivirus. I can understand your feelings of McAfee-it is probably the worst nagware antivirus around. Norton and McAfee used to be the best. However, they had their time and avast!, avg and Avira are taking the stage. Comprev
  9. I am curious as to which antivirus software is said to be better-McAfee (paid version) or Norton? Please select Norton or McAfee if you have used both and interpret one as better. Feel free to make posts regarding this. Comprev
  10. EDIT (sorry about all of this-no need to merge them) Do you mean fake awards? I would be wary of places who advertise with fake awards. STOPzilla's awards might be fake and they are known to provide a useless antispyware program... I wouldn't trust the program as far as I could throw it. http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=1416STOPzilla Forum PC Tools has no links to the awards it won... Maybe it's pretending. PC Tools It said we had to pay to remove said infections... Maybe Xoftspy might have faked results. It is hard to tell who to trust Luckily Malwarebytes can be trusted 1

  12. Thanks for that. Not everything comes to mind: I have figured these traits out based on research and have never actually "experimented" with what I learned about malware. Also, thanks for putting everything into one post. It can be a pain if you remember something after the post. To IDKWatMNShouldBe: where should I post it?
  13. I believe that there are certain conditions that are markings of a fake security program. A rogue must meet at least one of these criterion to be a rogue: 1. It generates pre-determined scan results to mislead a user (without this the program is not a rogue) 2. It is spread via malware 3. It hijacks your browser 4. It locks or ransoms your computer until paid for 5. Does any of the above while not detecting a real threat 6. Intentionally blocks legitimate programs from running 7. Takes over the computer booting up 8. Does any of the above and requires money to remove fake infections 9
  14. Congrats! I must take some credit for that: MBAM has saved my computer from a few tight spots! Keep up the good work!
