Hello, fellow computer users
First I want to thank you for giving me this chance to seek help in this amazing forum
Second, here is my problem:
While seeking a software to protect my pc from an infected flash drive, I installed this software called USB guardian ( Website: http://www.usb-guardian.com ), and after using it I found it totally useless and doesn't do anything at all, so I started wondering if it's fake. I checked the their website and it said that the software is guaranteed to be clean by Softpedia, however there is nothing about that in softpedia. Also their page on CNET was removed (I know that because there's a cached version in google search).
I checked the setup file (the installer) and Norton said it's good to go, but checking the .exe file in the installation folder, Norton insight said it's bad and there are indications that it's not safe. I uninstalled the software but I'm still worried so I have to ask:
How do I know if this software is safe or not?
Is uninstallation of any software a complete process? or can it leave files behind without deleting that can threaten my pc?
Can I be infected? and how do I know if I am in this case?
Is Norton alone enough for protection form software and malware or do I need an extra software?
Operating system: Windows 8
Security: Norton Internet Security 2013
I really hope you can help me with this matter
