Malware Bytes used to be free now it is a trial version for 30 days and they want money.

In terms of how they are all used then really they all suck ass.

To get any benfit out of any of them to delete your infection it goes like this.


At work I scanned a known pc that was infected because it was doing weird shit.

7 antivirus packages could not find anything and black light kept finding ghostly remains of dead virus files. then black light would clean then I reboot and the dead virus files would come back.

So there was a hidden reinfector on the PC.

What I used to clean it for good was combofi which found everything.


But seriously if you are infected and you use your pc to visit your online bank after you think you cleaned it then you area fucking fool.

A banking pc needs to be reformatted back to its virgin slate with NO OS and no software on it at all.

then once install and drivers are loaded and you ran all windows updates then use norton ghost to save it all as one big file then next time you are infected then just slap the norton ghost back to the hard drive and you are up and running virus free within 15 minutes.

AVG, their Anti Virus client only, don't bother with their other security program. Nothing free or that costs money compares to it.

This.

MS Security Essentials is a decent baseline (low resource usage and free!) for XP/Vista/7 computers. If you are using that bastardized turd called "8", it's built in as "Windows Defender".

Malwarebytes is also always good to degunk a trashed system.

companies that offer "anti-virus" software are often the ones who release viruses.

duh. it helps their business.

-----------------------------
get a setup, a top or phone or pad, where people don't install Mc-A-Fee and their shit still works

Ever hear of Nokia Phone Anti-Virus ? NO. Why? Ever hear of Samsung anti-virus? No? Why? that's good ! means if you have these your "ok" as you ever will be.

avoid anyone promising not to attack you if you install their software. they are the f'ing mob, going door to door, making threats for "protection"

---------------------
(oh yea, nokia was bought out by microsoft and destroyed like any company having a product not made by asians that isn't running microsoft - never mind that)

Avast has never let me down. Try not to use shitty browsers like firefox or internet explorer, that is asking for trouble. Stick with Maxthon or Opera.

You also need to get a dick cleaner so your scanner doesn't pick up a lot of false positives. run ccleaner before your run your antivirus.

Join the 21st Century and get a Mac.

I switched the whole family over a few years ago and haven't had a single virus and have never had to purchase anti-virus software.

Microsoft - what a fucking joke!

In addition, use an online scanner such as F-secure, kaspersky, bitdefender, or panda.

Hello. There are many different options for iOS, but I can recommend to use only proven paid applications. So if you want to protect your data, you should install McAfee ios antivirus, it can be used on on any iOS device and provides cool spam blocking system. You can read more detailed information on the site.

Personally I don't think that it is really necessary. As I know this system is secure.

Talking about iOS I can agree with you. It is not necessary to install antivirus software on your smartphone. But if you ask about PC with Windows, I think it will be good idea. I recommend to choose some app from this best paid antivirus 2020 for Windows list from https://antivirus-review.com/best-antivirus-for-windows-10. These are the most popular.
