with internet you need some good antivirus , and there is something which is most viruses not work on vista , xp died quick without antivairus
What are you people doing to get sick? I only do maybe if im lucky 1 or 2 times a year and hardly any bad ones...last bad one maybe 2 years now?
Not like I haven't downloaded either.
I really really want to know how you are getting infected.....do you do windows updates? do you torrent that much(even then I never have gotten sick...)? Where did you get your last one at? really!
Yup I am in the same boat. I reformat every 3-6 months and I never have viruses. Maybe a few when I scan but I don't really keep up with the updates..
I'll run a scan it will be months...U people have seen how I run this machine stuff everywhere....
NOTING I'll install another one noting. It's crazy! because everyone talks like they catch stuff A LOT.
The last viruses is had in my pc was like 2-3 years ago... on my gaming rig a NEVER use av programs and on my internet rig i use Kaspersky but it's not enabled all the time
goodness gracious, where did u get all of that virus?
haha i betya 90% of viruses are from anti virus companies.
I swear it's MS have so for years.....I think they make them to break pirated soft and then they spread like roaches.
Lots of pron would be my guess.
You should all run Linux. (preferably Ubuntu )
+1, I haven't had a virus in over 5 years and I'm heavy into pron and torrents
It's all about knowing how to use your PC. I own a PC business and it astounds me the crap people have on their computers and they wonder why half the shit doesn't work or they have viruses...
Dude how many times are you going to use that same line?
I just had to laugh at that. I think Ill put it in my Sig as a quote.
I use Nod 32 AV and if they get it working, Ill have Threatfire too. It doesnt work on 64 bit systems right now though.
I havent had an infection in awhile. Its been a good minute though.
I havnt either shouldnt say anything though as ill most likely get a virus later tonight now that i have lol.
what we need is a real protection
Until everyone gets the point and uses NOD32
Or basically until "I think I have a virus, yet I have no AV" or related threads are a thing of the past.
I have Kaspersky, but I never turn it on. I only use it occasionally for an on-demand scan of a suspicious download or file and the occasional system scan. The protection is never on at all. I haven't had a virus in years, and I surf a lot of porn and torrents. lol. It's all about knowing what sites you can trust.
more like just keeping a low profile.
Linux is good for browsing/watching porn sites. No need for an antivirus/antispyware/anticrap to safely browse them either
Haven't had a virus since SP3 , then got a nasty virtumonde infection over the weekend- totally random while browsing innocent websites. Nothing I had could take it out (including nod32 and my manual removals... I just couldn't find all of it... so many files....). Malwarebytes' anti-malware got rid of it in the end. Better than spybot and adaware in my opinion- and I used to love them.
I run avast. Works very well for a freeware. I've been surfing for a lot of years and have not ever had a serious virus. Guess I've been lucky.
The number 1 statement, I don't download anything, I NEVER watch porn...
Anyways, Avira also has a TON of false positives in testing...
But either way 150,000 is insane, most I have ever pulled is like 65k.
Antivirus, I'm a Kaspersky/Nod32 guy.
Personally I run Nod32 or nothing at all.
i like avast and spybot.
