    How would you know?


    If you are not running a virus scanner, how would you know if your infected? Do you think the virus writer will pop up a helpful window telling you? You expecting to see a process called, "virus.exe" or a dir called "malware".

    Of course not. Today's malware is written to be stealthy. The biggest sources of new infections aren't file attached to emails, they are drive by downloads on web pages.

    So not running a fw and not running av - not a good idea, not good advice to give others.

    Using Console version of DrWeb v4.44 and havent' got any problems so far. However got BSODs with the GUI version on Windows 2008... havent' tried it on W7 yet :>

    update: just tried GUI version (drweb32w.exe) and everything worked perfectly for the first run, on the second run BSOD occurred. DO NOT USE GUI VERSION!!!

    It doesn't like Windows 7 when I tried it a few weeks ago, just rolls back without a real error message,

    I tried to install it (SEP) on my W7 and I neither received an error nor have a working client. I am pretty positive it never rolled back either.

    Using ESET Smart Security here, works great. Started with version 3.0.672, moved over to the version 4 beta this morning, so far, so good.
    I second that. It's really good. :)
