Conventional wisdom used to be that one should not run multiple real-time virus scanners simultaneously. I just discovered that my wife is running both the paid version of Malwarebytes (220.127.116.11.56) and the paid version of McAfee (16.0 R25 or 18.5, depending on where you look) on her Windows 10 Home machine (not sure which major version). Both real-time scanners are ON. Is that a bad idea? Should she turn one or the other real-time scanner off, or can they play well together nowadays? Thanks for any clarification! -- JCW2
I have been hit with an adware that pops up saying, "YOUR MCAFEE ANTIVIRUS HAS EXPIRED!" It covers almost one third of my desktop. I have never had McAfee. I paid $59.99 to get rid of this adware. I ran Malwarebytes Premium over and over and it did not help. Searching on line, I found the Malwarebytes AdwCleaner ("Malwarebytes AdwCleaner employs innovative technology engineered solely to detect and remove these unwanted hitchhikers. It’s the cleaner of choice for home users and technicians.") It did remove this adware -- but it keeps coming back, over and over. Has anyone else encountered this and found a solution? I did see a post someone made four years ago about this, so it appears this one has existed for a while. They received no replies on it, however.
I have recently acquired a popup ad virus on my iMac (macOS High Sierra 10.13.6). This virus sends my multiple popup ads through out the day telling me my Nortons or McAfee has expired, My Mac has a virus sent from a mock apple website page and virus protection ads. Each popup includes costsimpleplay.com on the notification. I have blocked this site from notifications and popups with no success. When I run my Malwarebytes it tells my my computer is clean. I have found one site about this virus, however it only explains how to rid it on a PC. Please help!
