Before, i used to run Malwarebytes and then Combofix, but combofix doesn't support windows 10, apparently? So... what guides you use now to clean your pc for infections, malware etc.? I have malwarebytes, but what else do i need? Thanks.

Not gonna happen for me that.

Ok, i will check out Eset Nodt. Never heard of it...

Yeah, seems like Malwarebytes is still being as solid as ever.

I use the eset online scanner, Kaspersky online, malwarebytes and their chameleon tool.

For daily I just use Windows Defender in Windows 10 and I monitor everything going in and out with glasswire.

none.. windows defender works fine for me and done so for years. Good browsing habits also help.

I'm also setup to easily obliterate my OS.. starting off with a fresh image with all my apps installed literally takes under 30 minutes. Finding and removing some viruses can take exponentially longer.

Same but in any case it's necessary, I found malware bytes free version to be more than adequate at cleaning up 99.9% of PC's.

1. Don't use Windows (I run Fedora 31 as my primary OS). If you wanna install Linux I have a few pieces of advice as well.

2. If you use Windows:
  • Make sure secure UEFI boot is enabled in BIOS - that'll be enough to exclude all kernel level (read drivers) malware
  • Use SysInternals Autoruns to check if anything which is not signed is launched on boot - if there's anything you don't understand (google for it just in case) or remember intalling - delete it.
These two points will eliminate > 98% of malware.
  • What still remains: malware may hijack various associations in registry, i.e. when you're launching an .exe file Windows instead runs "malware.exe application.exe" - I'm not sure which applications check for it but MalwareBytes probably does.
To be honest I don't have any AV installed in Windows (Defender is disabled via GPO) and I've never had malware in my entire life (for over 25 years of using a PC). The last very important bits:
  • Test each new application you're about to install via virustotal.com
  • Make absolutely sure your Windows and web browser are always up to date - I've seen quite a lot of people who for instance keep on running their web browsers for weeks without restarting them. In this case automatic updates can't be installed and you're prone to malware. To be extra safe, install Firefox/Chrome beta versions as they receive security updates faster and more often than their official update channels counterparts. Oh, and learn to use uBlock Origin and NoScript (not sure if it's available for Chrome - my primary web browser has been Firefox since Netscape Navigator -> Mozilla Suite -> Phoenix -> Firefox ) - both are essential for Internet security.

Sure... but 99% of home users run windows.

Your method sounds like so much more work than just having defender or a simple app, yikes!
I've seen a ton of people with a functioning up to date AV while still having malware - thank you very much. My method works. Suit yourself and I'm out of this discussion because I expect a lot of inane comments from people who barely understand how operating systems work. Some, for instance, believe that having $MY_FAVORITE_AV installed is enough to be 100% safe and secure. This is such BS it's cringeworthy.

I will try eset online scanner. the others i know of and use frequently, but what's their chameleon tool? :eek:

Yes, that is what i use as well; the free version of it. been working like a charm that.

TOO much work, TOO detailed and TOO overkill for a simple home user with fair browsing knowledge and no kids.

Ohh, but i do use Ublock Origin, though!

I guess i have found the answers i was looking for with this thread. Thanks for the useful and valuable inputs, you all! :)

Same! Defender only here too. Also, unless I'm downloading apps from known reputable sites, I upload and scan the file using http://www.virustotal.com before running it. Sometimes I use the built in sandbox vm (win10 1903 and newer) to test out stuff to see if it seems safe.

They are both for Windows :)

Just use Defender here... I don't get many issues if any and if I do get issues, well, that's because of me not anything else :)

Everything is stored off the PC and only things like Steam or Office or whatever are relaly installed so if worst comes to worst and I need to reinstall, an hour max and I'm up and running with a new OS and all my programs installed and running (including WCG and FAH programs)

Things can be made as difficult or as easy as you wish them to be.... :)

Stick to the free version of Malwarebytes!

Has anyone noticed that Malwarebytes now actually overrides MS Windows Defender and disables it? I just recently noticed that. That blows! They used to run together side by side. I have the lifetime version of Malwarebytes btw. Debating if I want to switch over to the free version because of it.

At home I use Eset Internet Security, although I have also used Microsoft's Defender and found it to be pretty fine too. At work, we have Avast and we use the free version of Malwarebytes if we want a second opinion.

Personally, I also used to have a bunch of rescue "disks" (USB drives, actually) loaded with antivirus scanners (Norton Bootable Recovery Tool, Avira, Avast, etc.), but these days I only have the one by Norton ready at any time and if I want something else I prepare it when I need it. Admittedly, I sort of got lazy in that regard.

Almost all proper AV does that. Malwarebytes is much more than the junkware remover it once was.

I've tried almost all of them, and labed even more for research/job.

Currently using Cylance on my personal machines.
