I did one today using pc guard. When I read the detailed report it said the following: Anti-virus found 1 suspicious Master Boot Record/Boot Sector. Anti-virus unable to fix. Virus definition file: avsdk-20072410.msp.
pc guard? Is that one of the programs that offers to fix problems that you don't know you have for a price. If it is then avoid it like the plague as its probably a false result to make you buy their software. What anti virus do you have, is it running and fully up to date? If so and it finds nothing then it may well be a con. It really depends which pc guard you refer to as I found a couple. I would personally trust my antivirus program before I would trust one which charges you to fix it - if this does this of course.
I pay monthly for Pcguard to my internet provider Virgin media used to be Telewest. I have tv, pc and phone through them so I don't think it is a con, the pcguard is updated regularly. I just want to know what the virus is.
Wait a minute now I personally don't know this pcguard program and superantispyware is not an anti virus program, it is a malware program and very good it is too but I would not recommend getting rid of something else just because it gives a false (perhaps) reading. I did do a search and found some info on the avsdk file but am unsure as to what it is. It could easily be part of some other program.
Hi this is from Bleeping computer and they say it is not a Virus scanner.
While you use anti-virus software to protect your computer against known viruses, trojans, and worms, you most likely do not use a piece of software to protect your computer against Spyware and Hijackers. That is where SpywareGuard comes in to play. SpywareGuard is a Freeware program by Javacool Software that will run alongside your traditional virus scan, but instead of alerting you when you are about to run a program infected with a virus, it instead tells you when you are about to run a Spyware/Hijacker. Though products like these are not mainstream like anti-virus software, these products are becoming essential for keeping your computer secure and clean from harmful software.
I probably jumped the gun a little but I would still run SAS and if you are paying for this pc guard I would stop as it is FREE,
