Anyone have any issues int he past?

UAC to Default

I manually scan and run the following every week or so.
SpyBot Search and Destroy
Malewarebytes
CClean
So now you have both MSE and Mcafee in real-time?
Yes I did have both running in real time with no issues or conflicts at all.
Toady I have removed McAfee and now running and testing MSE alone.

You'll be waiting a while. Mercurial is famous for his drive by posts.

None of those should conflict with each other. I would say that you should be fine.

lol @ Igster I have a life and don't wait for someone to reply to my post all day... I just check them when I'm bored or have time "no offense to the other members"


and yea thats a really bad setup... just do eset and comodo if its what you like but other avs arent necesary....

if you dont believe me... try to scan a World of Warcraft Installer with eset (with the other avs installed) or some really large Installers and you'll see what I mean... but aslong as you wanna waste resource dont mind my post :P

I bet you're CPU usage atm is not behaving good even at idle lol!

Isn't this for use in public access library computers?
Exactly. I have 2 teenagers in the house. They're both the same as I was when I was that age and are completely incapable of just using a computer without trying to change things. It doesn't take more than 3 seconds for either of them to start trying to download or install more crap on my computer whenever they use it for "homework". Instead of yelling at them. I have the entire hdd frozen.
