Why is your service bench running windows? For data recovery linux is far more practical. That or just run a liveboot of f4ubcd to recover data, then liveboot linux scan data and clean out crap before ever putting recovered data in a loaded windows enviroment. But thats another topic all together.

I use avast internet security. I have used avast since it first came on the scene and started supporting it a few years ago. Not much difference between paid and free but I havent had a problem 1 with it. My other computer runs avira free, which is sorta new to the scene but seems very solid so far. MSE really went downhill leading up to the windows 8 release. At one point it was one of the better free ones but as of late has a horrible track record.

I'm not running Linux because I'm an idiot with code.

And you more or less need code for Linux to work. (ATI user here, if that rings any bells).

Then again, I use that to test graphics cards, RAM and chips as well. Just about everything that needs to be diagnosed will be diagnosed on that machine.

And it is occasionally the guest machine, so yes.

Common sense, intelligent internet browsing and multiple backups for the win.

I'll take a virus over any resource hungry, constant background scanning crap-ware any day.

If I get a virus, it was fate telling me I need a reformat. tongue.gif

This.

MSE paired with MBAM Pro is pretty solid

You should be running an anti virus AND anti malware, I cannot stress this enough.

Malware and viruses are different beasts, looks like a fake "antivirus" malware got past your antivirus.

Have had countless customers infected with similar fake "antivirus" malware. 9 times out of 10 they have easily been removed or prevented with a combination of Nod 32/MSE and MBAM

Not to mention, MSE has the USB drive scanning option.
That helps tons when I have to use my USB stick at school and then access work on it at home.

There is just no way I wouldn't get infected given the schools use SEP and that is just useless.

MSE finds an Autorun virus, and MBAM finds the Dorkbot virus.

When scanned with SEP, it happily dinged and reported that NOTHING was found. Wow!

It's important to keep in mind that an AV is really only as good as its definition list. By that i mean that they can only stop what they know about.

sure, most have a heuristics scanner, but at the end of the day an AV is just a list of black listed pieces of code.

However some AVs are better at detecting manipulated variants than others which usually make them a better choice.

MSE isn't my first choice,but its not bad for a free alternative.

To the guy who said no AV. Crazy. Must not do much along the lines of downloading. Avast boot time scan is the strongest scan of any AV currently out in my experience, windows doesn't let you delete much while its running. 9/10 times its not a virus these days. MBAM is excellent software but I do not run it as a full time scanner, just when the need arises. I have a portable version on USB that I use almost daily.

+1 to this

When I built my current rig I realized how bloatware antivirus were, so I'm free of those since then. Talking seriously.

I run an online scan occasionally and I often watch the task manager to see if something odd comes up but I've got zero viruses to this date.
