Also, the scan quickly jumps to 88% complete and stays there until almost complete.

Are you running two AV's i5? or trying the Eset without disabling or uninstalling the Webroot & ?MSE as you could be having a litle bit of a conflict going on there.

I know that my Kaspersky 2011 doesn't even like the shortened version of MBAM running and lets me KNOW!

I think you'll find that just about everyone will tell you if you want to try another AV then you will have to at least disbale every other one you have installed if not unistall.

If you go the latter route there is a very good tutorial on doing it properly - it includes just about all the major "players"

No not running at the same time. Both performed a complete scan and removed before
ESET NOD32 was installed. My only knock against ESET NOD32 is how easy it was to obtain a Username and Password simply by googling it.
Thanks for the great info.

Sorry late reply - sick

Hiyya i5 750 Thats a real worry re Googling a password reset.

Personally I'd be looking for something a little more "sturdy" there are plenty of comparisons sites around - can't lose nothing by looking eh??

I had a fake "Virus Removal" popup and ESET NOD32 did not stop it or find anything after a scan. Malwarebytes found and removed it.

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate: x64 (SP1)


As people already said a couple of times, every anti-virus is quite good.
I recommend Microsoft Secure Essentials (MSE) as it's free, clean, updates.

Hope this helps!

Haven't seen it so...

Have used this on a mates machine with good results too - sorry if it's already mentioned but a quick scan didn't find any mention.
