Based upon that report you should also be avoiding AVG and AVAST as well and should probably be focusing on Kaspersky and Avira. Seems that Kaspersky conistently comes up as the or one of the highest rated year after year, but I have no experience with it. Of course both of these are not free and hence dont meet the threads initial requirements.

I've had considerable experience with both AVG and AVAST and think both are very poor in both detecting virus's and being performance hogs. I also agree that Malawarebytes is the best software for removing undesirables once you already have them. I normally find that as Malawarebyters is removing the undesirable AVG and AVAST finally see it for the first time!

Microsoft Security Essentials offers the WORST protection from 25 antivirus packages tested by AV-Test, a Magdeburg based independent institute, which regularly publishes surveys on antivirus software.
Please note that the CPU performance and the useability of the Microsoft Security Essentials is excellent, but I believe that the key point is protection.

AV-TEST - The Independent IT-Security Institute: Home

I recommend to avoid Microsoft Security Essentials.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

if I download something I want to see it on my computer right away but with that software on it will scan the download file first. It took a long time and I couldn't turn off scanning feature. That's about 2 years ago.

I think the keyword was 'college'. Think floppy disk and/or peer-to-peer.

Travel Well

If one is unsure about opening an exe file or whatever one can use a so called sandbox.

@ratfink, LOL and you are right.

Peer-to-peer. Kazaa to be more specific, while the 20th century was in its last gasping year.


Yesterday, I was trying to copy my college photos and started copying a folder called PHOTOS.

Apart from my personal snaps there was random stuff choc a bloc with malware / viruses and the like. Silly unorganized me putting it into PHOTOS.

You don't have to do much. One of Yahoo's advertising partner's recently distributed Malware through advertisements on Yahoo.

CNN: Malware attack hits thousands of Yahoo users per hour
