Win7-ULT-x64-(All 5 PC's, 3 DSKTP's, 2 LPTP's)
 
 
Back to AVAST V5+ Only Now...

Well after installation and performance issues in Win7-ULT-x64 OS w/ System Suite v10+ i have uninstalled it, just have AVAST V5+ for malware intrusions now, working fine that way, two days now. Anyway Yes, i know the cautions running more than one (of certain) antispyware programs, possibly one of the core reasons why System Suite V10+ did not work properly while coupled with avast... Anyway The Win7-ULT-x64 issues never cease for me, I had to uninstall Google's Chrome PLUS+ "Chromium" browser and fully clean it from system and reinstall as a class not registered error would not go away even after re-registering the needed files, claiming Possession of it's files, and general cleaning of cache, temp, favs visited etc. etc. etc. now reinstalled fully Chromium Google Chrome "PLUS+" Seems ok once again... will see. As for IE v8 x86 mode, heck it won't even load into task manager & memory space LOL so i use x64 IE v8+ and no problemo's. Anyway that's my recent OS 7 Plight for sanity!!! Enjoy your on & offline time(s)!...~<(____)~CheerzZz.

Ex-Brit; I couldn't agree more.

NightHawk you are very correct sir.

All others thanks for Your invaluable input as well...

PEACE!

I had to give that one the "thumbs up" for being a top notch software even finding things hidden inside a zip being stored on one drive but never opened! Their free Vipre Recovery Program cleans just about anything possible off of a bug infested system when tested. I knew the test machine was loaded quite well with all sorts when running the tool on it!

Kaspersky and MSE still not secure enough at all.

Koobface variant I picked up a sec ago.
Virustotal. MD5: 4cb30f9525250e4d5606ce0d9fc6daa7 Downloader Heuristic.LooksLike.Trojan.Drop.B Gen:Variant.Koobface.3

Now if you want to be really secure then you need decent security apps such as Sandboxie, Returnil, Defensewall, Shadow Defender....and definately employ an imaging app.

No security program protects you 100%. Your surfing habits - sites you visit - stuff you download, links you click on - have a great deal to do with how safe you are. Security programs merely backup good surfing habits.

After downloading/running several gigs of malware with my Sandboxie/Returnil setups I can say I have been 110% secure.

Heard it a million times before that no security setup is 100% and all I can say is that you don't know how to be secure is what the real problem is.

Don't visit this or that site or download this or that is so broken record!

With the right setup you can surf anywhere, download and run anything in complete safety.

Not true. The only complete safety is to unplug your computer.

maybe, but you represent a small group of people who actually use and implement the security the way it is supposed to be. Most people who have purchased computers dont know that much about software, how it is installed, what malware is or even adware. They just know that the computer is supposed to have AV, but they dont know how it works. People who delve into computers head first and really learn them know whats best.

I would say you're pretty lucky then, It is still better to have safe surfing habits with good security than to try and attain a bullet proof system just so you can go anywhere and do anything on the web.
