Preferred Solution: NextGen antiviruses where do you get them?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

What's the latest skinny as far as estimated release dates for the next generation video cards from the big players? I've checked here and there, but I trust this forum mostly. Any opinions on who specifically you are looking at - models etc -

JB
 

A:NextGen Video Cards

So far it's seems that both will be shown behind closed doors on CeBit. The official launch of ATI's part in April, with availability in May.

Would've thought that Nvidia's part would be allmost here allready, but it seems to have gotten delayed.

Maybe they'll announce the cards at GDC (GameDevConferance), but not sure.

It would seem that Nvidia's part will be more advanced that ATI's (supporting PS/VS3.0), but unsure about speed. It will be one hot (in temperature) card if the rumour is correct (~150W).

ATI is willing to sacrifice margins to make sure they have the top-end card, and Nvidia needs the top-end card so we'll probably see some nice prices for us.

Was this some of what you were looking for?

I need to use a program called citrix to run an electronic medical health record called nextgen. I was told by our IT department that it requires Windows 7 and will not run with any other OS. I have Windows 8.1. What do I do?
 

A:Citrix/Nextgen Windows 7 OS

Well I just did a look up on it and I only saw Windows 8.1 in the requirements, but I may have been looking at the wrong software.
My guess is that your IT people missed the AT LEAST in the documentation.

i have trend micro on my laptop, but i want to try eset nod32, so if i turn off the part that says protection from viruses which i'm guessing that means i'm disabling it, so if i disable it will the new one that i'm trying out work? i wanted to do it this way instead of uninstalling the other one just in case i don't like the new one, so would it work?
 

A:two antiviruses

Hi,

Probably would work- no gurantees, even if someone posts that they have it that way, your system might not work correctly with even one disabled, we do see that fairly often.

You can disable one, then start the install, see what messages might come up.... a lot of av programs will look for other programs and pop up a message.

Perhaps someone who has Trend Micro and NOD32 will post and let you know more.

But generally no, it's not a good idea using two installed.

Why doesn't normal security software detect or prevent rogue antiviruses?

A:Rogue Antiviruses

It depends on the type of Rogue Antivirus.Anti-virus programs generally scan for infectious malware which includes viruses, worms, Trojans, rootkis and bots.Rogue security programs do not fall into any of those categories and that is the primary reason some anti-virus programs do not detect or remove them. They typically infect infect machines by using social engineering and scams to trick a user into spending money to buy a an application which claims to remove malware. In a social engineering attack, an attacker uses human interaction (social skills) to obtain or compromise information about an organization or its computer systems. An attacker may seem unassuming and respectable, possibly claiming to be a new employee, repair person, or researcher and even offering credentials to support that identity. However, by asking questions, he or she may be able to piece together enough information to infiltrate an organization's network. If an attacker is not able to gather enough information from one source, he or she may contact another source within the same organization and rely on the information from the first source to add to his or her credibility.What is Social EngineeringRogue security programs are more often detected by anti-malware software which tends to focus more on spyware, adware and PUPS (potentially unwanted programs).Keep in mind that anti-virus and anti-malware programs each perform different tasks as it relates to computer security and threat detection.

I have a relatively old PC consisting essentially in 256RAM; PentiumIII/700, XP Pro, more than enough hard disk space inside a partioned internal one and another 80Gb that's external. Until just some weeks ago things got very much acceptably. I was using AVG 7.5. After that I have been going and coming to and from NOD 32.2, 32.3 and AVG 8, depending on how variable are opinions there and here. Currently, after my shareware NOD32.3 was completely deleted (including logging name and password) by Malwarebyte's Anti Malware I went back to free AVG 8. Now I practically cannot work, for everything run at incredibly low speed, as for example when trying to attach something to a message from "my documents" folder, opening Outlook 2003, etc,: also when writing in Word and a message arrives, the system collapses for a few seconds. The same for starting or closing. I know that it "seems" to be a RAM memory trouble, but it works against this theory the fact that I was working very well with almost the same applications than currently, I would say, until I moved from AVG 7.5 to AVG 8. I tried to work with Avir, but update was a real adventure that I am not disposed to accept at normal. It's obvious that my hard disks are defragmented and that I have passed the various antiviruses several times. No one except me manages the PC. Should I try with a lighter antivirus?

A:Antiviruses And Speed

I have a relatively old PC consisting essentially in 256RAM; PentiumIII/700, XP ProThat there tells me that RAM is the most likely problem. The system requirements for XP were 256 MB as far as I can remember. That is only for the operating system. The more stuff you install and run, the slower it'll get. You will benefit greatly from increasing the amount of RAM. That is without a doubt, your major cause of slowdown. Also, from what I have read (since I have not yet tested it) AVG 8 takes up lots more resources, so that may account for why your computer's behaviour changed since the upgrade.Hope this helps.

Hey all,Currently I'm using avast! free edition antivirus on my computer. Because of the lack of ability to schedule scans, I'm thinking maybe I should get a antivirus program that can do this, so I can run scans weekly at night when i'm not using the computer, etc.I understand that I shouldn't have two antivirus programs running, as the real-time scanning may conflict. However, if I get a on-demand only scanner (which can schedule tasks in my case), such as http://www.bitdefender.com/PRODUCT-14-en--...ee-Edition.html , would that be 'OK'?I've also used Antivir before, but don't like the ads that pop up each time I update.Thanks!

Basically I have had this problem for a few days. I had ESET Smart Security 5 64-bit and all of a sudden it stopped working and advised me to reinstall, I uninstalled and when I tried to install it again it would just start reverting the installation midway through, so I decided to download Avast, installed fine but none of the shields work.

As explained in that post, I found a strange exe with randomized characters in my User folder which I seem to have deleted after several tries. After running lots of tools as I was asked, I'm still left with no antivirus. No pc/internet bandwidth hit so I'm just worried I might get more severe infections. SUPER Antispypare found a backdoor and keylogger. I don't know if it's a false positive or not (also covered in that other thread). No GMER report because I have Win 64bits

Every time i start up my computer, some background ads popup ranging from car commercials to detergents, with no way of stopping them. I have tried MSconfig, and see nothing out of the ordinary. I opened up the  task manager and see a program called Nagy.exe with the description of "Quick" which led me to nothing particularly helpful on the web.

I have used free applications for years now. Few observations :

Avast is the most common name around. I personally like it's interface and free utilities. But time and again, I have seen it fail an average user like me.
I installed it a few months ago, replacing 360, and it immediately found malware (full scan). I got spooked and also did a safe mode scan with hitmanpro, malwarebytes and adwcleaner. All found results. Thanks to MT for telling me about these life-savers.
I had it on the MT's recommended settings. Uninstalled it and put Panda free instead.

360 promises big and looks great. Bitdefender's name made me install it. After a few months, it stopped updating. Uninstalled it. It took a 2nd AV (avast) to show I had malware all along on my pc. Never getting it back.

Avira has been my favourite AV for it's strong test scores ( I take AV Test's word) and low impact. I installed it after Panda, just for a change. Panda is also one of my favourites but doesn't get the high scores avira gets.

Odd thing is these antiviruses always develop bugs, I repeat, always, and I am forced to uninstall. The above have been used on both my devices which have identical specs with Windows 7. Again, I'm an average user with basic computer knowledge.

None of them compare to Kaspersky (present choice, trial). I have decided to try F-Secure next.
 

A:Odd thing about Free Antiviruses

Well for free antivirus I like Avast a lot, but it's PUP detection ratio is not satisfying for me, that's why I intend to use malwarebytes as an on demand scanner (weekly scans is enough for me).
Though currently I am using Kaspersky Internet Security because I got a free giveaway license and it is good. I would recommend you to try Eset too, I used for quite a long time and it works great.

Some of you knows i like coupling a main AV with a companion AV.

Companion AVs are Antiviruses that can run alongside another AV without conflicts, procuring an added layer of protection & detection.

In my case, Comodo IS + Emsisoft AM or lately Emsisoft IS + Webroot SA.

So there is a non-exhaustive list of available "companion" AVs:

- Emsisoft Anti-Malware

- Webroot SA

- Kingsoft Antivirus

- Immunet (free) / Cellframe Antivirus

- Malwarebytes Anti-malware (Pro)

- Avast Free (compatibility mode)

- Baidu Antivirus 2015

- Celframe free Antivirus

- SecureAPlus (non-local AV engine)

- Kompass AV

- Absolute AV

feel free to add the ones you may know that are not listed yet

I'm running Windows7, with McAfee and PC Tools Antivirus. I was subscribed to tech support from my ISP, and all they seemed to do to scan my sys
for viruses and such was to use their own toolbox full of antivirus tools, in addition to running betas from the net, uninstall it, install another, run
it, uninstall, install another, run it...
They disable my McAfee before doing all that.
Can I do this on my own? Is this advisable?

A:Antiviruses playing nice in my sys?

Yes, certainly,

you have McAfee and PC tools but you have to pick one to be the main one and disable the real time protection on the other one or you can Uninstall one

Run a scan on a computer or automatic schedule a sccan to run weekly or monthly

It not advisable to run Multiple AV at the same time Commonly you have one primary that is use for real time protection but if they are telling you to disable one while the other one runs it scan.

The reason is having two on at the same time is very intense on your computer resources, conflicting, false-postive and so forth.

Commonly there is a way to co-exist with these av software by doing what you stated but its a hassle.

I dont know if you are subscribing to McAfee but there alot of Free ones the most common use is Microsoft Security Essentials but If your happy with McAfee dont change it because I am suggesting MSE.

Here's my story, awhile back i purchased DiabloII battlechest from a local walmart and never got around to doing anything with it. yesterday i was excited to get a chance to install and play. one problem, i open it up and there are none of the case sleeves with the serials on them. so either an employee has sticky fingers or/and they have terrible security and a customer stole it. regardless i call the store they tell me sorry im SOL they cant do anything. so i decided my last resort would be to go serial hunting, i figured legally a purchased the game so it shouldn't natter about the serial. this is where i get stupid. against every bone in my body i download an .exe file. i scan it with Spybot and AVG, shows "clean." so i kick myself and run it then everything goes to hell. i couldn't connect to the web, spybot wont show up even though it shows in the process list. avg runs thankfully and was able quarantine somethings and i gained web access again so i could post here. spybot is still not running even though it says it is. as i am typing i ran DDS and now GMER.

Hello. My problems have been going on since the beginning of April. I started getting popups for random things like obscure search engines, fake contest promotions, and fake antivirus software ads when browsing online. They came up unprovoked, without me clicking anything. I also started getting redirected to similar sites, sans pop-up, when I tried clicking on google search results. I closed out of those tabs whenever they occurred, and updated and scanned with Malwarebytes and a few other programs, but they didn't detect anything out of the ordinary aside from a bunch of cookies.

Lately, however, they've been picking up more serious things things, like viruses. I also had a rogue antivirus malware slip into my system somehow. (Total XP Security, or something like that.) It started annoying me with a crazy number of "security warnings" advising me to buy its software. Although Malwarebytes looks like its taken care of it, I'm worried that there might still be some pieces of the program floating around. I don't know how to identify or get rid of them, though.

Oh, and my original popup/redirect problems have persisted, no matter what else my legit antivirus programs have found and cleaned up.

People I've told my story to have advised me to just wipe my laptop and reinstall Windows. I want to know what I caught, though, and if its possible to clean it up. Most importantly, I want to know how to keep myself from catching it again. Given that I had to do a wi... Read more

Ransomware is one of the most important threats these days, and I'd like to ask if you know some antiviruses with a built-in specifical component to protect from ransomware. By now, I found only 360 TS on the Free side (it detects when a process is attempting to inject code in an other, or when your files are being modified. You only need to click block to stop the ransomware). On the paid side I found bitdefender and I think also kaspersky has a file protection module. Do you have any other antivirus to add?

It's only compatible with antiviruses when you you're not using the Bitdefender engine (which is only included in the paid version). Without Bitdefender, it will be compatible with any antiviruses, but will only use its only sigantures which don't detect much compared to alterantives such as Malwarebytes or Zemana.

I was just experimenting with ssdeep for a few days. It is a program that generates CTPH (context triggered piecewise hashes) from files, and can be used to recognize similar files easily along with a similarity score. And then something came to my mind ?? I wrote a very small program, modified the first slightly and produced a second one, and compared the hashes for two files :
$ ssdeep -dl foo.exe bar.exe
def.exe matches abc.exe (99)
Thus it seems that we can recognize similar executables.If that's the case, then can't malware also take its advantage, and kill/delete the processes antivirus/antimalware programs? Does any present form of malware already do this? Its already giving me the creeps.

I used to use Microsoft Security Essentials as my antivirus for the longest time but the other day when it was getting ready to update as it usually does, it kept giving me an error that it couldn't find an internet connection. So it stopped working. So I decided to check microsoft.com to see if I could find the problem but when I try to access the site it just loads and loads then says "Unable to connect, Firefox can't establish a connection to the server" so I tried it in Internet Explorer but it didnt connect there either.

I decided to try and download/install a different anti virus, I went to antivirus.comodo.com to try that one but that site also does not want to connect. I managed to download comodo elsewhere, the antivirus seems to be working but when it tries to update it fails, I'm guessing cause I can't access the site.

I did a full scan with malwarebytes but it found no threats. And I cleared the dns but still having no luck.

I'm hoping someone can help me out to fix this problem. I don't like having an antivirus that can't update cause of this, and I'm guessing they won't update cause I can't access their sites or some kind of virus?

I don't have boot disk, and sorry for not having the txt file zipped. It wouldn't let me unless it was with winrar. Hope thats ok.

Thank you for looking at my problem here. I'm hoping someone can help. The security center says I have two antiviruses running, but I don't have any other program installed. I use Bell Internet Security Services for my antivirus.

I ran the Belarc Advisor and it came out saying I did have 2 antiviruses running and one is called "My Security Shield". I tried rkill, but I don't think it ran properly because scans with Malwarebytes came out clean. Finally I noticed that rkill was scooped up by Bell as being a virus and it was quarantined. I called Bell and told them to let it go through as it was blocked from being restored. I tried rkill again, but still I don't think it worked.

I tried Malwarebytes twice; Superantispyware started but disappeared; Stopzilla; Bell Antivirus & Spyware scan and Windows Malicious Tool. Everything scanned clean. Stopzilla said it found and removed stuff but the two antiviruses are still running.

I tried disabling the system restore and at one point I changed the proxy setting and I replaced the HOSTS file a couple times. I tried to stop processes MS345d_2129.exe, DBOLE.exe and kernel32.exe ... but I couldn't find any of those. I do not get any pop ups for My Security Shield. I would never have known it was there.

I found any info from the internet. By no means do I know what I'm doing so please, if someone can help me, give any instructions in a very simple way so I can follow it. Please don't assu... Read more

Okay so earlier this evening my computer started randomly restarting itself as soon as I opened any folder in the "My Documents folder."
When it finally restarted my desktop was changed to a blue screen with a box in the center reading "YOUR SYSTEM IS INFECTED."

There are also fake antivirus softwares that are trying to run.

I read online about this problem, and it gave a a solution of running SuperAntiSpyware on safe mode, then MalwareBytes Antimalware after rebooting.

The problem with that is I was able to open Superantispyware once, then started a scan, then it terminated itself. When I tried to open it again it told me something along the line of "Windows can not access the specified file, you may not have permission."

The same exact thing happened with MBAM and Avast. It's as if whatever is infecting my computer won't make the same mistake twice in letting me access my antivirus software.

There are also taskbar icons (a red circle with a white X) saying my computer is infected with a little alert balloon which leads to a internet site for fake antiviruses.

Whatever has infected my computer is killing off all my anti-virus software as I try to use it. And there are numerous pop ups and false alerts. Also my internet browser redirects when I try to go to help sites.

Oh also, there are pop up windows that say things like 224.exe has to close or something like that. (the 3 digit number is alwaysrandom.)

With all my antivirus... Read more

My computer started to freeze on the welcome screen after user log in. If it didn't freeze on the welcome screen, the screen would turn black with a cursor over it. I turned off my computer, and started up safe mode. When I ran a scan on Avast antivirus, the scan would detect nothing, until the point were it would freeze. I downloaded a malware seeking program, and found nothing. I then got super anti spyware. On quick scan, it detected 165 threats, all adware. It would then proceed to freeze. I've also tried to system restore. It only worked for about an hour, and it would freeze on avast quick scan. I can't system restore anymore. It freezes on system restore now. I have a Inspiron 15r with windows home premium 64 os. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you

A:Adware detected on my computer, antiviruses crash on scans

On a virus free PC, d/l MS Windows Defender Offline & run it on your machine. This is a boot AV disk.

Windows Defender Offline

Go into safe mode & run Malwarebytes...the free version is good.

http://www.malwarebytes.org/

If you can, d/l TDSSKiller & run it to determine if you have been infected by a rootkit.

Hello,
During the past month my computer has been infected with a very annoying virus. It redirects me to random web pages and occasionally a fake anti virus will appear on my desktop and try to "help" me. I've already tried system restores, restoring the hard drive image to about 3 months ago, and scanning with malwarebytes and kaspersky. Nothing was ever found. Any ideas? I've tried google-ing but have found nothing...
