The update was pushed to Windows Update Servers just No Wonder so many people are still really clueless about computers in this day and age with so much misinformation out there. At home I use Avast/Malwarebytes but I don't know anyone that uses AVG/Avast/MS Security Essentials for business use.

As a computer shop owner for many years I have tried them all, paid & free. Nearly everything is fixed in both. The free trials of most of the mentioned anti-viruses are the first things that get thrown out. I stopped using Norton that day and will not install it even if my internet provider gives it away for free.

My "weakling PC," by-the-by, is a Gateway P-7805u-FX, using a standard 2.27GHz Intel Core Duo P8400 CPU and 4 gigs of ram, dual-booted with Windows 7, both x64 and x86.

  • If you're being redirected from a site you’re trying to visit, seeing constant pop-up ads, unwanted toolbars or strange search results, your computer may be infected with malware.
  • I've used MSE/WD for about a year with no infections, yet I have visited dangerous sites, downloaded known malicious software.
  • however, i would caution everyone against using trendmicro because the product suffers from zero day attack and only (would you believe it?) avira helped us recover.

ESET would be my second choice and I used it for years before trying Webroot.

In any case, you clearly missed some critical things over your career.
