Here is the Question what are you running for Malware detection? Is it Legit?
Like always said there is reasons for running multiple Spyware scanners But Only one Antivirus scanner, hopefully one that scans your incoming emails. Donna a Security guru at C.O.U. has created a test for the main common ones.
See the results here. It will amaze you too for it did me!
If you know of another spyware scanner getting good results from these scans let Donna know or place it in the comments below.
Now when i began this Security Post I stated that I ran Bitdefender in the ON Demand Scanning and updating mode. If you understand what that is I feel your advanced enough to understand and consider Bitdefendr AV.
BitDefender Free Edition 10 uses the same ICSA Labs certified scanning engines found in other BitDefender products, allowing you to enjoy basic virus protection for no cost at all.
BitDefender Free Edition is an on-demand virus scanner, which is best used in a system recovery or forensics role. If you are on an “always-on” Internet connection, we strongly advise you to consider using a more complex antivirus solution.
- Virus scanning and removal
On demand scanning – Powerful scan engines ensure detection and removal of all viruses in the wild every time you need it.
- Scheduled scanning
The Scheduler lets you plan ahead, and schedule full system/drive scans in the off hours, when you won’t be using your computer.
- Immediate scanning
With just a right click you can check your files and folders.
- Skinable interface
You can express yourself, designing new interfaces, or you can use those drawn by others.
By isolating the infected files in quarantine, the risk of getting infected diminishes. You also have the possibility to send these files for further analysis to BitDefender Labs.
When launching a scan you may choose to create a report file where you can see statistics about the scan process.
