Browsing the Internet last week for something and got hit with a Rogue Anti-Spyware program trying to download on my computer.Last night AVG jumped in and deleted some sort of Trojan that was on the website that I was trying to open.Now I have both McAfee Site Advisor + AVG link scanner active and both gave the sites as clean.I can only assume that neither of them are safe to use any more while browsing the Internet.Is there any better programs about to-day that can do a better job.Unfortunately I never kept the name of the Trojan or Malware that AVG stopped.It is not in the virus vault so do not know where to look for it now.
Downloaded it.But never signed on.Works something like McAfee puts a little circle icon just below the red X.different colors for different warnings.AVG Link Scanner gives some of the sites as safe and Wot gives them as undesirable.McAfee used to have the same problem with AVG Link scanner. So will give it a try and see how I get on I will remove the Link scanner as well as it does not seem to be very good .Thank You.Your help was appreciated.Will now class as resolved.If I find any problems I will let you know.
I`m pleased to hear it`s working all right. There`s always a suspicion with these things that they may be a bit too nanny-like, censoring things that are perfectly OK as far as malware is concerned, but far too strict as far as the content goes.
Still, it doesn`t stop you from accessing sites and you do have some prior information about the possible risks ... better that than no information at all, I think.
Since there is no known conflict with McAfee it will be interesting to compare the ratings they give to the same site.
