Can somebody please advise of a good free anti virus and malware download for Windows XP Media (32 bir) which will not in the process of downloading kill my PC. I have had some trouble with this lately?
I used a download from PC Tools called Spyware Doctor with Anti Virus which I paid for. After having installed it, my PC froze. My local computer shop removed it from the PC and this freed everything up? I have not a problem with them for the last 4 years and do not want to use them again for fear of the same thinh happening?
this may sound stupid, but i was working on a company pc, they had AVG installed, spybot S&D and McAfee something, norton internet security. not all running at the same time, put they were all used weekly for a scan. none of them picked up anything. i put on MSE ( MICROSOFT SECURITY ESSENTIALS ) it found 5 viruses. Spybot or anything else wasnt the wiser.
Also, MSE is very light on a pc, i have it running on a netbook, no performance difference, 1.6ghz and 512mb ram.
I use Avira (free anti virus), PC Tools free fiewall, Superantispyware (SAS) and Malawarebytes(MBAM) as anti malware and Spywareblaster to try to block malware.The new SASsems very good and finds tracking cookies missed by MBAM
