Windows 7: Advance System Care vs CCleaner

I use MSE by default, but with the chronically-infected suggest they buy the Malwarebytes realtime shield.

I don't really know any paid AV's that work better in the real world, just ones which are not performance drags or problematic. I'd use ESET, Kapersky, TrendMicro, Bitdefender if someone else paid for them.

MSE was not much help when John's dad-in-law clicked a dodgy link. Maybe none would have helped in that case.

In that case I'd use Malwarebytes real time protection. After my Dad clicked fake AV's twice I bought it for him and the annual fake-AV attacks have subsided.

I would not use any of those. You're asking for problems.

That's good to know, at least my wife is only a few feet away and has learned to ask.

Mcafee total protection 2012

hi
Mcafee kill trojans in a way i have never seen before.Yesterday in a download from Cnet it detected and removed a trojan,i mean Cnet,then you are not safe anywhere!
I know a lot of members of this outstanding forum dont like Mcafee,and i dont blame you,but the 2011 version of Mcafee total protection has killed over 50 trojans for me,a "bennefit" of dangerous browsing,and the 2012 version will perform this needed service for me in the near future,and as long it does that i will not change virus software.

kind regards asser:

The performance problems MucAfee can bring on are not worth it. All AV's find Trojans.

Asser if you continue your 'dangerous' browsing you will at some point find a trojan, worm or root kit that will get past MuckAfee.
