  1. Hello. Malwarebytes official site send me Toolslib for downloading Adwcleaner. Is it safe? Is It official? Virustotal doesnt find any malicious here. Thanks for your help.
  2. Someone recently who works in the computer industry as a programmer told me that antiviruses aren't really needed and he thought they were a waste of space for users who know what they're doing. He added that all they do is take processing power and that if a virus is going to infect you it will do so without the AV doing anything. I just want to raise this point because I am considering removing my Avast subscription and if it actually would be ok to do so. Before launching any suspicious files I test them in various online/local sandboxes to ensure they do not infect my system since I bank on it aswell as game. I know what I am doing and have spotted infected files before such as ransomware and RATs which prevented me having an infection, etc. And sure, online sandboxes are not reliable due to detection however this is the same for an antivirus. Realtime protection is meant to prevent the execution of malicious files based on their signature. Now, if a black hat is to write a good trojan, that trojan is 100% to be encrypted meaning it will fly through the detection and launch. It might be scanned by others thus distributed to the companies for signature analysis which would note the signature and add it to the database but that would be after a certain amount of time. For me personally, I never use my AV. I analyse files myself using tools so I know not to launch the file if I find anything malicious. Should I remove Avast! or not? Keep in mind I have like 8 types of protection services such as firewall, web shield, file shield so it takes up ALOT of CPU power which could be used to speed up my system.
