Last night I got fed up, removed Avast and re-enabled Windows Defender. Why? Too many false positives. Also, Avast is supposedly freeware. Actually it's nagware. It nags and constantly reminds you your computer is unsafe unless you pay them money. As I see it, freeware is freeware - no nags nor is anything crippled. Everything else is either crippleware or nagware, and I hate them both with a passion.

I guess the only other real good antivirus-antimalware program I've been running is Malwarebytes 2.21.1043. They "upgraded" it, added all kinds of "features" and in the process turned a good program into a bad one.

I'd say with these 2 programs (especially Avast) I average probably 25 false positives for 1 real detection. From now on if I download a suspicious program, I'll simply upload it to virustotal.com and check it out that way.

If you are on W10, use defender, I'm using the same and so far its good. No nags and stuffs. Head over to Majorgeeks to download MBAM 2.x, I didn't like MBAM 3.x, still using 2.x.

MBAM 2.xx is awesome. I'm not sure if you can tell it to continue downloading virus definitions WITHOUT forcibly upgrading the program. One thing I hate is when these developers add "features" to a great program and end up breaking it.

Yes 99% rather than enhancing the app, they break the app like MSFT.

If some of you are using windows 10 RS4, maybe you noticed that the edition of virusscan enterprise can't be installed. Well, msft is just preventing "setupvse.exe" from installing the piece of software. Apparently it's not the only application they are blocking (maybe mcafee gave no bakchich?). To bypass it, renaming the application is enough.

Here is a new silent installer of vse 8.8 with patch 13, compatible with windows 10 RS5 and with windows 7 ("setupvse" has become "msetupvse"): https://drive.google.com/file/d/1819XbV8Le-nR_ISMYLEGJQK3OlRoccux

Note: you just have to execute the program to get it installed. It can take up to 20 minutes, don't reboot before seeing the antivirus in the programs and features list, otherwise the install could be botched.

Here is a silent installer of the patch 11 that was released recently (vse8.8 must be installed): https://ufile.io/2hre2

Note: you just have to execute the program to get it installed. It can take up to 20 minutes, don't reboot before seeing the antivirus in the programs and features list, otherwise the install could be botched.


Nice.

You'll find virusscan enterprise 8.8 with Patch 12 included, released in November.

Does anybody have a working copy of Malwarebytes AntiMalware? I got hit by some malware the other day. It got past Windows Defender with no problem. Malwarebytes Free doesn't monitor the OS in real time, so it's not very useful unless you intend to scan manually all the time. I haven't found a cracked copy on the torrents that works like it's supposed to.

MBAM 3.x is pretty much useless on free version. While, MBAM 2.x detected threats in free mode but doesn't disinfect it. It better to burn Anti-virus LiveCD from Kaspersky/ESET and put it on USB. I found AiOBoot to be great alternative for dual mode UEFI and BIOS/Legacy booting.
