How to best protect against Malware / Virus'? - Page 5

post #41 of 55
I probably do about 300 virus removals a year (most of which now are those rogue A/V programs which i cant believe how many people actually pay for them) and as far as removal ive had really good luck with malwarebytes. Im pretty good at avoiding them so thats all i keep on my pc. My girlfriend who seems to have a bit more trouble i just threw a copy of Microsoft Security Essentials on and keep a copy of malwarebytes handy as well. I have some other tools i use for more tricky removals but malwarebytes gets a damn near most of them

From that link I provided earlier of Comodo HIPS

it,s not the auto-allow or auto-trust thatis the problem here. Problem here is a deficient feature in Comdo Defence Plus. There is no filter/ rule for the malicious behavior of gpcode in Comodo defence plus. So once it,s allowed to be executed, comodo sandbox or HIPS can not contain it. Same is true for many other HIPS like EQS, MD, etc.
OA made a smart move and added such a feature. Comodo developers are still lazy to do this.
^so its not a case of getting stopped try it then uploaded. Its doesn't get stopped coz there's no filter/rule for it basically. It leaves it for the av part of Comodo. I have no idea why they don't fix this. Stuxnet variants are going to come out and malware developers are going to use it to bypass it you can bet your life on it.

What I am trying to say is, go with a paid anti virus, they feature more comprehensive options.
I really did not mean to say that the above ones are not good but think about it, if free versions of the same program was better than the paid one, than why would people buy the paid ones?

I also use NOD32 and it's pretty much impossible to block them. tell her if she sees a site that looks like windows explorer and says you have x amount of viruses (usually says around 40 or so) than get out of it. those even changed my wallpaper. they say there antivirus software, but they were viruses. it blocked task manager, too. idiots didn't have it block system restore, though. i got rid of it w/o software.

this is a conspiracy theory but just have a look when a new virus outbreak occurs how sudden a specific av rise to the top by being the only one to detect or remove it. One virus outbreak can make a paid solution a lot of money. I like to read thru the malware databases and how they came to fame or started. Can't remember its name but it said the virus escaped out of Kasperskys Labs. Lol how can malware escape from kaspersky labs? Is it airborn? Lol

It's a problem because many users don't use the AV included. The only way to stop it is to not allow it to run. I do not like the mods responses over there at the Comodo forum about the gp code issue. Saying "the AV will catch it" is a cop out. in fact it almost makes me not want to use it. The CEO of the company goes on rants saying how AV will not protect you, then they turn around and say only the AV WILL protect you. Those of you who are forum members will know exactly what I'm talking about.
