ESET sub almost up looking for new AV

41 posts in this topic

Lol this was a thread about a problem using Eset AV under windows 7 that was caused by a MS update and now there is a fix for it.

Make another thread about your preferred AV or whatever A vs B you have there.

Thank you

As other have said

1) Stay away from the firewalls. WAY more headache than what they are worth. The one built into windows works just fine.

2) Stay away from MSE, for some reason 90% of the people on this site like it, but in my experience its not great.

3) I also recommend buying Malwarebytes. It's only a 1 time purchase and a great second line of defense.

One of the best forms of AV is to keep your stuff up to date. This includes

1) Windows

2) 3rd party applications such as but not limited to Adobe reader, flash and Java

This is what the average persons security looks like.. and i'm not making this up!

Expired version of X Antivirus (usually Norton or McAfee)

Some people are also missing service pack 1 for 7 or Service pack 2 for vista including all the updates following

Out of date versions of

Adobe Air

Adobe Flash

Adobe Reader

Java

Siliverlight

Firefox

Quicktime

Toolbars

Ask

Alot

Mywebsearch

Conduit

Default tab.

malwarebytes isn't worth using for free even though :/

couldn't even handle simple malware and didn't even blink an eye at other more serious ones when I was testing it out yesterday

Norton 360..........sound and low resource use.

Windows firewall is sufficient for firewall and use Microsoft Security Essentials for antivirus.

Are you serious? It's a decent scanner. It obviously won't find everything as no single scanner can.

If you do decide to renew, i'd only get the av part or just get a free one like maybe avast or mse. The weakest link in security is and always will be... The user. No security app can protect against a user's foolishness/behavior.

I actually just moved over from webroot. Not that it had any inherent problems but just wanted something different.

Check out VB100 testing - http://www.virusbtn.com/vb100/index

You can get an idea of how different AV are doing, and recent tests to see trending (succeeding/failing protection)

Current chart - http://www.virusbtn....mparative/index

Looks like a paid product called coranti doing the best.

Despite Coranti looking to be one of the best products in testing... they going out of business.

Avira Free is also doing very well

well this was one that EVERY other one found and wasn't brand new or hard to detect and should have been found by it. Hence simple.

That's strange because I used the exact same link to buy a subscription for myself before I posted it here :huh:

I've tried it just now and it's working. Try a couple times as it may be getting hammered, 13c for a year's worth of subscription for a top tier security solution like that is a steal.
