Hello. I have the O.YourNewContent Malware on my MacBook Pro. Why has my Malwarebytes Premium allowed this to happen, without blocking or quarantining or notifying me of it? Why are we expected to pay so much money for the promise of "THE BEST ANTI-MALWARE PROGRAM" when it doesn't deliver? MalwareBytes BITES!!! Please provide a quick resolution. Thanks, Joseph
Many people hate internet explorer. However, many others don't know why this piece of software is so hated. So for those of you who don't know why IE is hated so much, here is the explanation. - Internet Explorer 6 Internet explorer 6 is what made IE so hated in the first place. It was slow, clunky, slow, had terrible security, was really slow, had updates that added nothing, and did I mention it was slow? Not only that but it was a nightmere for web developers who couldn't program anything easily with it. IE 6's tyranny lasted for a while. But their was hope. A new browser named Firefox came and developed new standards for web browsers. Then came other good browsers like Google Chrome. These browsers made IE6 look absolutely terrible in comparison. Especially for web developers who had to deal with IE 6's "special" coding that made them go through hell in order to get their web page to look good in all web browsers. IE 7 tried to fix things but it was pointless. It ,doesn't help that IE 6 still terrorized web developers for years since windows xp was still supported until recently. It was so bad that a guy made a song about internet explorer being mean to him. I even have a link to the video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTTzwJsHpU8 - Even today it's still inferior to other browsers Despite all of the updates, IE is still inferior to other web browsers. Its slower than the four other main browsers (Firefix, Chrome, Opera, and safari). It's not as customizable or secure as firefox. Its not as sleek as chrome. It certainly doesn't look as nice as opera. So what it Internet Explorer good for? The answer is nothing. - It's so unsecure IE has been known to have its security problems, but it has gotten so bad that for a short amount of time the U,S. department of homeland security didn't want people using this. This was due to some malware being able to infect your computer by the user visiting an infected website. Other browsers were protected against the malware but internet explorer was vunerable to the malware! It's overall not as secure as the other 4 main browsers. It honestly makes me question why people still use it! - People probably only use internet explorer just because they don't know much about computers Do I even need to explain this one? It's bad enough that it holds about 58% of the market share (as of now that is)! - My reason for hating IE This reason is something that not many people think about. This thing is the true reason why I hate IE. That reason is that it shows that Microsoft hasn't been caring for their customers. I know that it seems kind of odd to say this but it's something that seems eminent to me. Microsoft is one of the biggest buisnesses on the planet. But they give us this terrible application. They see all the great things that Google and Mozilla give us but they don't deliver anything good (It doesn't help that Mozilla is a non-profit organization that needs to ask for money and Microsoft is a multibillion dollar coorporation). They destroyed IE so much that they are trying to make a new browser for windows 10! Those were the reasons that we hate Internet Explorer. If you want to you can add some more reasons for why we hate Internet Explorer. I hope that this also clarified some things about Internet Explorer. Thanks for reading!
Before I had exclusively suggested AVG 2014 to everybody, as it had never let me down. Well. My relative noticed something funny going on her PC, and I did a virus scan with AVG 2014. It detected a backdoor trojan called backdoor.PoisonIvy.BQ, but couldn't remove it and it constantly showed up in scans. So I was writing a post on AVG forums to ask for help, and feces hit the fan. Text was selecting itself, removing, closing windows, and a rainbow screen with Windows XP styled checkboxes appeared. I was pretty freaked out, and I pulled the plug. I had to change all of my passwords, just because of AVG letting me down. So on my working PC I edited the poorly written AVG forums post due to the shock of everything deleting itself, and I wrote a blog worthy report. A week passed with no replies, and then I finally got an email stating that my thread on the forums had been replied to. And it was this big fancy admin, and his entire post was to submit the virus that had taken over a PC completely and submit it to them with great risk of my own digital security. AVG was freaking useless. A month passed, and I was over at my relatives for Christmas Eve dinner. I asked if I could fix her computer after the holidays, after I caught wind of Malware Bytes being designed to remove threats that huge security vendors couldn't. After the computer was back on it was very slow, but acting somewhat normally. I inserted my USB with several big name anti-viruses and tested them out. Spybot 2.0 flopped over and did nothing. ESET spazzed out over something stupid, and didn't remove the virus. Avira didn't do anything. And malware bytes did it. THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH! I also used Adwcleaner that I found off of these forums, and AVG and it's ridiculously useless search engine was never used again. I've since then used AdwCleaner and Malwarebytes to clean up everybody's computers that they would let me fix. My family has had awful luck with money, and you've saved us from a lot of grief.
