anyone who believes that paying gives better security is chasing a ghost.
No no, that is not what I am thinking about.
You see, when a project needs funding and is running for some time there is somebody who funds it. And this individual or organisation does the funding for a reason. Example: Some time ago I buildt a website and included a 'free' hitcounter. Only to learn later that this counter came with a piece of software that took note of the visitor's internet adress and had them pestered with advertising - and myself into the bargain.
If I know, that the free AV is a promotional thing for a full version I know what to expect: being informed once in a while that it would be a good thing to upgrade now or that the task at hand could be done much better by the full version or any such things. This would be okay to me. But I would hate to have to register and find out that the organisation makes its money by selling my data. Or worse.
So, hopefully I successfully clarified I am not so stupid (;-)) to throw my money away.
But now I am having Malwarebytes and MSE installed on my system. How is the best way to utilise them both ? I see Malwarebytes has a protection feature as well (it talks German to me, so I do not know what would be the English tag). What does this do ? Would this interfere with the real time scans of MSE ?
Thanks for your support folks.
