Anti-Spyware

Spyware is software that aims to gather information about a person or organization without their knowledge and that may send such information to another entity without the consumer's consent, or that asserts control over a computer without the consumer's knowledge; it has also come to include programs that engage in various kinds of electronic fraud. Anti-spyware is software that removes or blocks that software; some common vendors include Malwarebytes, McAfee, Spybot-Search and Destroy, Ad-Aware and BitDefender.

Protect Your Retail Business and Reputation

Wi-Fi access doesn't just impact your business & customer experience, it can also affect your security.  Join us for an informative webinar to learn more about the top threats and trends impacting retail today, and the key solutions to protecting retail networks and reputations.

Hello, we manage x 3 client OS's, Windows 7/8 and Windows 10, Windows defender is turned off in our build/SOE,
Anti Virus management is done using the Symantec EndPoint Protection client installed on machines, can we enable/turn on windows defender whilst another AV product co exist? Can the 2 products run together? The business wants us to download updates for defender yet it's turned off? Trying to understand why we would need to do this?

Are there any free options?

We use Symantec Endpoint Protections (currently v12.1.6) on our end user PC's. Remote users connect in remotely via Checkpoint SSL VPN.

We are testing SEP v14, which was released in November, and have a group of testers with it installed.  Now remote testers have reported (and we've verified/replicated) an issue where the "Endpoint Compliance Scanner report" fails that the Anti-Virus rule fails (Portal administrator requires you to have Symantec antivirus running and updated within the last 2 weeks). Another failure is similar for an Anti-Spyware rule.

This works fine with SEP v12.x, and the Checkpoint Network Extender version is 7.01.0000.  Screen shots are attached.

Has anyone run into this one yet?


Thank you,
Kevin

My domain controller continuously tries to access the same external IP address.  it is alerting my anti-malware program with several alerts.  I run scans with both the anti-malware and antivirus programs but neither finds anything.  The alert says it is coming from the domain controller using dns.exe.  I need to know where i can look on the DC to find the source that is trying to access this IP.

Guys,

for those that are using Trend Micro to protect their corporate file servers, I would like to know if the global setting above is generally used. The documentation says it increases cpu load and scanning times. Would love to know what other guys do in their systems. Is it safe to run ? Has it given you any problem ?

Thanks!

Note : windows update cleaned the file only for it to reinfect?
need a method to permanently clean.

Please do not refer to web for solutions.
Am looking only for a detailed solution or software that definitely can clean this! Be aware I have already tried most of the mainstay anti malware and anti virus solutions, they are not cleaning this!
