I picked up the internetoloper malware a few days ago and was advised to install the Prevx program to get rid of it. (I already have Avast but that hadn't found it, but Zone Alarm had picked it up) So I installed Prevx and the first scan found and quarantined this malware (and voblaizdupla malware also) but since then my computer has frozen/crashed 3 times in 2 days which I have never experienced before - I have an Evesham Axis only about 18 months old and always problem free. Anyone else experienced problems with Prevx?
I had Prevx in addition to what I already had running last year. Although very good, I too found that it was locking up my system. I couldn't find an answer, so I got rid of it. System recovered straight away. Shame, because it said that it would work with all but a few programs.
Skidzy - I already have Adaware installed, it never noticed these malwares. SB23 - I have now uninstalled Prevx and system is back to normal. So it seems that Prevx is a good program for weeding out malware, but risks making your system very unstable. Those Prevx guys have some work to do.
