I got a phonecall today from my wife with the "your PC has just popped up a message that virus's have been found and it wont work".....
After 10mins of banging my head off my desk I told her to Ctl+Alt+Del and end task everything and then shut down and leave it for me.
Well..I have just spend the past 2 bloody hours of my time removing something which called itself "Win 7 Anti-Virus 2011", which blocked me from using internet, using orther AV software, and opening any .exe files.....fun..
My question, be it long winded..is; Is there any antivirus software that prevents this crap getting onto your PC? I currently have NOD32, and the free version of Malewarebytes.
I am dissapointed with NOD32, but Malewarebytes looks like its worth upgrading to the paid version.
What are your opinions?
BTW,you can run programs in the sand box with this.
