Agree - Got another idea ??
Nope. None of those products are any good. They all give the user a false sense of security. Nothing can replace safe surfing habits.
That is why Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro
version is about the only "reasonable" program to use on a constant basis.
All other methods require you to submit a single file or url
each time. At that rate I would never be able to "surf the web" -
"Safe surfing habits" as such, means only visiting sites that you already know are 99% safe prior to opening the site, and then you can still be caught in a "drive by" where there has been a piece of malware placed by a rogue infection. At least MBAM Pro
will not let it execute the rogue 99.5% of the time.
Final result = 1)
Use a program like Virus Total or AVG,s link scanner, that only uses old records of Previously Known
Use a decent Antivirus and Firewall like Kaspersky, ESET or similar3)
Combine the above 2)
with a proactive malware program like MBAM Pro that is updated hourly, to stop rogue .exe,s from opening.
My final words on this, as they all rely on existing previously known items, or percentage basis (like Virus Total) -
Pointless to go on -
