Iobit has many false positives and it removes tracking cookies which MBAM does not

Oh its true in that IObit Secutity 360 has the advantage of having MBAM's stolen database. Read the article I linked to it explains exactly how MBAB caught IObit stealing red handed.

No need to be rude!. It's removed some nasty malware from two of my PC's in the past, where as MBAM did not and I'm not talking tracking cookies.

I wasn't being rude, I'm sorry if you took it that way. It's just so funny how MAXXWIRE mistyped it. Like he said, a true oxymoron. So I quoted it. It's still making me LOL

IObit Secutity

Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 is the man imho. With Apps Control, System Watcher & Sandboxed desktop.

I have Kas 2011. It's good but it still misses stuff. I don't believe there is the one perfect protection program out there!

Kaspersky tends to leave "corpses" of malwares, especially *.exe files and fake shortcuts, even though those files are absolutely harmless but those files will still be detected by some antiviruses (false positives). You can change the setting from Disinfect into Delete to get rid of those "corpses", KIS always makes backup of anything it deletes.

If KIS signature scans, in rare ocassions, cant clean all [dormant] threats, KIS Real Time & Apps Control & Proactive Def & Identity Protection will eliminate all [active] threats the second they are executed, even before they are executed. We are in the era of behavioral security, signatures are legacy.

And if somehow some threats miraculously get passed all those KIS features, System Watcher will roll back all changes the threat made to the system, and if your identity data or passwords got stolen and sent over to the internet again via slipping through the most advanced Kaspersky firewall, have no worries, since it has been highly encrypted by Kaspersky. All they get is scrambled passwords in alien language. imho.

Interesting thanks. Where is the setting to make it delete malwares instead of disinfect and is it a good idea to change that?
