G'day,

 

 

Your inquiry doesn't really fit in this section of the Forums.

 

 

For Security Advice:

 

 

I'd suggest you POST in HERE:    Anti-Virus, Anti-Malware, and Privacy Software

 

 

If you need help with a Malware infection, you would be better off posting with a better heading, something like "I Think I Have a Trojan."

 

 

If you think you have a form of Malware and there's anything further I can do to assist you, please post back here.

 

 

Take care,

 

 

Kilt.  :thumbup2:

Don't bother creating a new topic...I am moving this to the appropriate forum relating to your topic title.

As for your question, if you don't mind paying, I generally recommend ESET NOD32 Anti-Virus or Emsisoft Anti-Malware as they are effective but leave a small footprint...meaning they are not intrusive and do not utilize a lot of system resources which slow down performance. ESET and Emsisoft Anti-Malware also have the added advantage of blocking the installation of most Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs) (such as adware, spyware, unwanted toolbars, browser hijackers) if you enable that feature. The most recent release of Emsisoft Anti-Malware includes an Anti-Malware Anti-Ransomware module.

See my comments in Choosing an Anti-Virus Program for more specific details as to why I recommend ESET and Emsisoft.

Personally I use Emsisoft Anti-Malware and I must say their product is one of the best on the line. It offers a great amount of protection while also providing easy usability and respecting individuals privacy as well. Other products such as ESET and Kaspersky are also nice solutions to research upon.


Have you tried turning it off and back on? :P
