malware removal report

Hi guys, i heavily infected my pc with some nasty viruses and malware.

I ran a couple of Anti virus and anti malwares to clean my pc.

I m happy to produce the results.

1: Kaspersky Anti virus: To my surprise, not detected anything.

4: Spybot Search & Destroy: Just like Nod32, Detected most of the harmful items as soon as the program was installed.

Im not surprised at the results as I have my own favorite. It figures you would go the exra yard to infect your own computer to get the results. Im sure everyone should be reading it

This just proves it.

EDIT: Is that the smileycentral crap?
I had Avast! on my mothers pc but for some reason she was still able to download and install this product..Also, A Malwarebytes Anti-Malware scan shown over 200 trojans, most are Trojan.Vundo.
Learned my lesson, Ill NEVER go back to avast! Again!
(BTW, The PC was STILL slow, but now its running windows 7 with NOD32 and not vista anymore.)

The best way to stop theses kinds of infections in the FIRST place is to download this addon:

It was just an attempt to help people to choose something that really works.


Above comment especially for MSE users.

In other words, Don't just trust things blindly.

So in this instance, what are you saying? Spybot Search & Destroy and Nod32 FTW together or what?

Well we all know dont run more than one AV at a time, But why not. I have 2 MSE, and ESS 4.x that play fine together and cause no added drain. They catch different thhings, run at different times, and generally I forget about them.

Mainly because they will most likely detect each others definintions (resulting in a F/P detection), and they are resource hogs. You can have two antivirus programs on your machine, but only one needs to be running full time.

I recommend only one and using an online virus scan every once-in-awhile.

Anti-spyware programs are not the same as Anti-virus programs, for those who don't know the difference

Thanks for noting that, Jacee. So many people think that all Anti-Malware programs are interchangeable, when in fact, many have their own niche that they operate in, and thus use of a layered system is always recommended.

A concurrent anti virus and antimalware program is not a bad thing - but two concurrent (and memory resident) anti virus programs is.

Or you can use one anti virus app and something like ThreatFire, which is what I'm running right now along side ESET ESS, and they work very well together with no issues.
