I use malwarebytes 3 [home] premium and am happy with it, but I would feel a little safer if I had another antimalware program, obviously one that is compatible with mbam. I was using MS Security Essentials on my Windows XP system and it actually found a virus that mbam did not, or at least did not tell me about [perhaps MSSE stopped it before mbam had a chance]. I have Windows Defender, of course, on my W8.1 system, but apparently it has been disabled. I have tried Avira, but consider it too obtrusive. AVG appears incompatible. Avast seemed OK on my XP system, but I have not tried it on W8.1. In short, I am hoping to get some advice as to which free antimalware program the experts at this forum would recommend. Thank you, ralatmby [Robert Leeper]
Hi, i'm going to do a windows clean install and i have already analiced my pc with my antivirus and with malwarebytes, i have also used a couple of cleaners. malwarebytes found a couple o malwares but i have already removed they. ir order to be completely sure that there aren't any malware in my computer i was thinking in use a bootable antivirus (i think that a low level format will be to much time for the hdd of 1 tb, how much time do you think that it will need? its a good idea to do it?) i have never had a really bad malware in my computer and i have used antivirus from the first day but my question is: do you think that is a good idea to use a bootable antivirus? because since i'm going to format i wanted to be sure that my pc is totally clean. i know that there are rootkits that are almost invisible for the common security software. although i have my pc scanned and nothing was found, do you thing that a bootable antivirus could remove something that have not been found yet? or the only thing i can do is a low level format?
