Need help with antivirus setup
Posted on 2013-11-17
I have what I consider to be fairly or good antivirus coverage, but I am confused about a few things. I am hoping you can help.
First, I know what when I have come on here asking for help in the past to remove some viruses that got by my A/V software (Trend Micro at the time), I was asked to do a series of maneuvers such as run MBAM, Combofix, etc. So, from that strategy, I tend to assume that you should have an actual "anti-virus program) on your computer such as ESET, Avast, AVG, etc. (I use ESET Nod32 now, which I have found to be the best). And, malware programs such as MBAM, Combofix, SAS, etc. should be used for more targeted things such as looking for a virus or malware if you think you have one that your A/V didn't detect.
In other words, would running MalwareBytes by itself with real time scanning be sufficient? I currently am running ESET with real time scanning and weekly scans (I hear good and bad about scanning) and I have MBAM Pro just running in the background, not doing scans. Supposedly, from what MBAM themselves told me, the pro version has some preventative measure from CryptoLocker.
I also think I want to use the pro version since it is on a commercial network.
Any help would be appreciated. I am very confused.
