Maybe run a scan with it, if it finds nothing then you can uninstall it. You should really be set with Avast, AVG, MSE, and COMODO.

dude, thanks! you're a genius!

any idea which is the best combination to run programs? I now have avast, avg, comodo, and MSE. is that overkill?

#102 - Nameloc (10/09/2013) [-]
No problem!
You should be fine with what you have; If you start getting a ton of false positives, your system slowing down at startup, or BSoDs while scanning then ditch AVG and/ or MSE.

Trust me, I used to be extra paranoid...
I had everything listed above installed. It took a solid 15 minutes to boot into windows, and scanning with Malbytes gave me a BSoD.
Now I'm down to just Avast and COMODO.

As for anonymity, I would suggest looking into PeerBlock.
It will stop IPs from watching what you're doing.
Maybe combine that with the TOR web browser and you're set.
Unless you want to pay an outrageous amount of money for a private VPN.

Links to these programs:

www.malwarebytes.org/

www.team-cymru.org/Services/MHR/WinMHR/

Personal Firewall:
personalfirewall.comodo.com/

Personal Sandbox (Forgot to mention this; It's great for using programs you're not too sure about. Especially if they are super sketchy. Although you won't need this if you have Avast.)
www.sandboxie.com/

Anonymity:
www.peerblock.com/
www.torproject.org/

Just be sure to not use all of the anti-viruses at once.
It'll really slow down your computer upon startup, and will cause some false-positives as well as possibly giving you a BSoD when scanning.

All anti-virus programs return false negatives. Just because it detects more doesn't mean its correctly detected anything. Not only that you have to factor in what the programs usage is compared to how well it detects, you must also think about whether it actively detects stuff.

Also, virus scanners are pretty much redundant now-a-days unless you're an inbred retard or over the age of 70 years old and can't help but click dumbass links or visit dodgy websites. Besides, any virus that actually does damage will shotgun itself by mimicing system files and copying itself many times to many different folders. Many also open traffic ports and hide in the registry, where they can download themselves again.

Only way to completely erase a virus is to reformat your machine. But even then, there have been viruses that can flash your BIOS, copying themselves in.

Advanced System Care any good? That's what i currently use
User avatar
#59 - nandaaz (10/09/2013) [-]
Advanced system care is really good, but you shouldn't use it instead of an anti-virus+firewall.
I have the paid version of Advanced Systemcare 6, and everytime I let it scan my pc (the scan is pretty light) it finds tracking cookies, sometimes virusses, it has the same features as C-Cleaner, and it also fixes any mistakes in my registry or hard drive.

Right now I have: Avast free antivirus, Zonealarm firewall, Advanced Systemcare 6 to keep my PC clean and fast, and Malwarebytes (free version) for when I think I have a virus.

Quoted from wikipedia:

Critical reception

CNET Editor's Review states, "Advanced SystemCare Free 4 wants to be it all when it comes to keeping your system clean. It gives you a wealth of tools, rolling many of parent company IObit's better-known system utilities--or at least those utilities' engines--into one convenient package".[4]
Criticisms of Advanced SystemCare 5

Critics suggest that the program does not live up to its name and compares poorly to equivalent free software. A significant percent of individuals that have installed the Advanced SystemCare software have reported computer problems and "glitches".[10]

You know Advanced SystemCare 6 is out,right?
I'd give this program a 10 on keeping my computer clean and fast, but it's not something to use INSTEAD of anti-virus or firewall...

but still not as bad as my aunts pc MB found 300+ malware on it LOL when i removed it all her computer crashed and i had to reinstall the OS

that's what scares me most of all. when antivirus programs identify some critical system file which comes from the OS as a virus, and potentially destroys the OS from the inside or making it unstable.
