TEST YOUR COMPUTERS HERE ON THE TOPIC LINK.
http://www.hardwareanalysis.com/content/topic/21435/

The test involves, a firewall check and anti virus software. both should work to stop this happening.

NOTE
you will be getting a FAKE virus installed on your computer,

ownship over your PC as in open your CD drives.

PLEASE.. some of the sites are adverts i dont recommend any think of them, only use the tools!

>> Re: ANTI VIRUS REG AVG USERS
I know that alot of you use AVG.

I am sad to say its prity bad.. I have just come back form holidays (vacation) where they had this software.. it was up to date, but being as i used the system i prescanned for everything anyway well i used a 2 months out of date scanner , and picked up a few.

now to say i cannot support AVG nore recomend this software to anyone, infact its pointless having this on your system.
I do how ever say anti vir is good.
it need to e adjusted for maximum gain and protection. just one check box. but its better and not sys hungery!

AVG sucks! I used to use it and one day I decided to check for viruses using some online scans. My PC was infested! AVG's database is out-dated, they never update, and it can't detect anything.

Of all the free antivirus programs I've used I like avast! best. I have never had a virus avast! missed and my online scans from companies like Symantec and Panda always come clean. :)

I hate Norton. Well, not personally but I have had a lot of unhappy friends with it. It seems Norton slows down their systems, doesn't detect some viruses, and cannot delete them all.

I wonder if Norton is popular because it often comes bundled OEM. The newer versions of Norton are getting better but the older ones really sucked!

i thnk norton is bundled to much, its free so people tend to use it, when you install sysmatec (norton) its a royal pain in the ass to get off your system and hangs on in till you format, but saying that some one has made a remover for it. it is labour intensive on the system which isnt so good. its updates are every two days i believe as well, which i dont think is so good. as i reitterate anti vir is updated about 3 times a day and has very regular updates on its programme as a whole. this is the sort of thing im looking for in anti virus, even weekends. you know its got to be good. its worth checking commander ( not sure wht AV software they provied) but they send me mail on all viruses that are out there, so with this information and the fact that i can read my VDF (viru defin file) and add up to make sure there all covered.

I did quite like avast32 which is now called avast. but its just too much for mid to low spec systems. its talks in a realy voice so thats good, but it tend to tough you off so you are more into wondering whats just spoken to you than stopping the virus activity. ( which is how i got my one and only virus).


Pc cillin was bundled with my MOBO, if its bundled it cant be that good, think about it! ive not really got into testing it or using it. it was only on my system for a few days before i removed it.

anyone tryed black ice? ive used there indivdual AV /FW software for MSN and kazaa but thats it. (still never had a virus from kazaa :)

anyone else got anything good??

Couldn't agree more with above posts in that AVG, although being free, is not up-to date. NAV is also very system hungry aswell as scanning at shutdown resulting in the comp falling into a reboot loop!

I now run the full version of Trend Internet Security after running the free version for 90 days - touch wood, the system has been squeaky clean since install over 4 months ago.

Stay safe & secure Guys and Gals!

The AFuses Norton Corporate. Either they trust them, or want a company with clout if things do go wrong. As I am also sure they would get faster response from Symantec than I would.

I just wound up with Systemworks, it is okay, but very intrusive on a gaming box. I disable most of the background stuff, and only enable the AV when surfing the web. I have not had a virus in quite a few years, and I only hide behind a NAT Router. I would run a software firewall, but they are too intrusive yet again. Most are a royal pain with Everquest, which is mainly what I do on this system. My ports are stealthed through the router, would be nice to be able to run a firewall (software) that just blocked stuff from going out, that was not initiated. Black Ice was the one that got along with my system the most, but I have not heard anything good about it. Norton Firewall was way too much of a pain, and I did not get along with the free, or the pro version of the other one I tried, forget the name, oh, Zonealarm.

I have not tried Sygate though, mabe I will give that one a try.

Yeah cheers Rory, the W32.Netsky.D@mm thing seems to have disappeard, I founda fix for it from Symantec. I had Norton AV report some other worm, but I think it's gone now (phew) although my computer still seems slow, like with the W32.Netsky.D@mm

I put NAV Corp Ed on most of my Client's networks. Central managment is key. I do not want some user postponing updates or shutting the service down.

At home I have tried PC-Cillin, Panda, AVG and NAV 2000, 2002 and 2004.

NAV is a little resouce intensive but the new Spyware features are nice.

PC-Cilin is I just don't like - mostly just the interface.

I stopped using AVG after I had a client get infected while running AVG and System Suite - the Nortaon boxes all caught the virus and the other got infected.

I liked Panda but when it came to paying for Anti-Virus software I choose NAV. Symantec has a big reputation to keep.
