Anti-virus software was originally developed to detect and remove computer viruses. However, with the proliferation of other kinds of malware, antivirus software started to provide protection from other computer threats. In particular, modern antivirus software can protect from malicious browser helper objects (BHOs), browser hijackers, ransomware, keyloggers, backdoors, rootkits, trojan horses, worms, malicious layered service providers (LSPs), dialers, fraud tools, adware and spyware. Some products also include protection from other computer threats, such as infected and malicious URLs, spam, scam and phishing attacks, online identity theft (privacy), online banking attacks, social engineering techniques, Advanced Persistent Threat (APT), botnets and DDoS attacks.

I had this question after viewing anti virus software protecting against ransom ware.

Is this for a single computer or network of them?  

The best and cheapest protection is a solid regular backup of your system. Windows 10 has built in backup utilities.

I am looking for a product I can put on 4 personal computers windows 10,8,7 so I can defend my new and old computers
Not for business use

Hello -

I am trying to uninstall Symantec Endpoint Protection and replace with new AV within SCCM 2012. I have the install application for Symantec and new AV. The Symantec application should have a uninstall switch, however not sure how to double check that with .exe I have for Symantec. I have tried to run uninstall of Symantec with Uninstall.exe however no luck. I have also tried to run a batch file from my desktop with wmic product where "name like 'Symantec Endpoint Protection%'" call uninstall /nointeractive, however no luck.

Hi All,

We have just moved to Kaspersky EndPoint security 10 (10.3.0.6294) from Sophos.
Some of the users have complained that now it takes them few minutes when they start there computer in morning and when they shutdown.
Is there anyway we can monitor whats taking up resources when the computer starts and how can we minimize Kaspersky resource utilization?

thanks.

I have a .net Point of Sale system that has been deployed to 100's of users (external clients) for almost 10 years now.  With the recent attacks and strengthening  of Anti Virus systems it seem that some AV's no longer permit my application to run. I have found that adding an exception to the AV allows the application to run.

However, I push out updates to the application almost weekly and that nature of click once when doing updates creates a new directory for the newest version of the software on the destination machine. This then in turn makes the previous exception void. I am having to spend almost over a day providing tech support to clients to re-add the exception. This is not something i can continue week after week and clients are starting to get annoyed by this.

I chose click once for its simplicity but it is now becoming a big issue. I know i can submit the application to be white listed by AV companies, however there are so many out there, this process takes time and the frequency i push out updates it is really not a viable option for me.

Has anybody has to face this issue before? how did you deal with it?

Not sure if my problem is self inflicted?

I use Avira anti virus.  Additional tools include Avira system speed-up, which optimises 'boot-up-speed/time'

Recently, I booted-up my latop and the avira optimiser appeared. I pressed ok, then made a coffee. Returning I noticed the optimiser was
still running?  stating that 'files were being 'repositioned' to minimise boot-up times'  Never seen this option before, but there was no way of cancelling this action.
I decided to re-boot, unsure of the impact.  On re-boot windows listed -  'critical' updates will be installed.

Opening file explorer I saw 'quick access' which I never use. Also my personal folder - as in 'Roberts Folder' was missing?
I re-set  to 'This PC' which I prefer, and again could not locate my personal folder?

I found my folder located in; Windows - Users.      

'Now I get confused'  ---  This PC - documents, has the same folders as my 'Personal-folder'  a carbon copy?

But the folders in 'My Folder - Users'  contain the most recent 'updated information'

I would like to retreive/ relocate 'My Folder' from 'Users'  to 'This PC'  prefering not to use 'Documents' for my business files.

Questions;  1)  Is the problem through Avira system speed-up?  (Tried restore points - no difference)

                     2)  Is this the Windows 10 layout - Have to live with it...

                    3)  Can I rectify this problem?  -  I could delete files in my documents, copy-paste from My …

Hi, does anyone use this software before?

Do you know how to calculate the amount of license which need to be covered? And is there any risk if I install both Kaspersky Endpoint Security and Mail Security on the same server?

We have 6 Exchange Mail Servers.

Many thanks!

Latest version of Win 10 Pro running on Surface Pro 4.

I did a full OS reset to rule out a virus or some weird OS corruption, but again when I click on an open program on the taskbar instead of opening that active window it opens another instance i.e another Firefox window or Excel sheet. Temp fix is to reboot and it may be good for like 10-15 and the it start happening again. The mouse seems to be erratic but even if my surface does not have any peripherals connected it does the same thing

Any idea what this could be?

A customer of mine would like to fully license the Symantec Endpoint Protection 14 Trialware once the trial ends.

We would like to install the antivirus software on a Server 2012 R2 Datacenter server and on two Windows 10 64-bit OS computers.

How much will this cost?

Will it be less expensive to license this software through a third party vendor rather than Symantec?

This software has been downloaded and installed from these URLs:

I have two Windows 10 Lenovo laptops that are both infected with malware, spyware, adware, and viruses.

I have removed these hard drives and have connected them as secondary hard drives to another Windows 10 desktop.

Currently I'm scanning the infected drives with Malwarebytes, Symantec Antivirus, and Windows Defender.

What other scans or repairs can I run on these infected hard drives to hopefully remove all malware, spyware, and viruses?

For example what other utilities or programs can be run and what Windows utilities or tools such as SFC and DISM can be used?

Hi Guys,

does anyone know how i put an IP exception in our Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager?

i can see guides on the support site for SEP but nothing that specifically relates to an IP address exception. I cant see any obvious options for it and i have no prior experience with the console.

does it go under Policies > Firewall?

the reason for the request is we have Spiceworks on the LAN and it is causing warning messages to pop up on users PC's as SEP keeps blocking it. need to put an exception in for the spiceworks server.

I have the yara rule shown below from Kaspersky. I've put it in my Linux system running clamav-milter. I'd like to test this rule by sending a message. I've sent a message contaning string $a3, but it was not caught.

To test yara generally, I have created a simple rule with a single string and sent a message containing that string and it was caught, so yara rule checking is enabled.

Perhaps just sending string $a3 is insufficient? What does "uint16(0)" mean? That appears to be an "and" condition.

The formerly known as Sentinel & now named as EPT is a forensics &
anti-malicious activities (process & memory scans) product.

Anyone (esp those who have used / assessed it) care to share reviews on it:
a) how easy to use & accurate/thorough is its forensics
b) does it have predictive capabilities of malicious behaviors
c) how does it compare with competing products?
d) does it deal with apps vulnerabilties like injections & XSS ?
e) it was supposed to deal with APT (Advanced Persistent Threats):
    does it deal with 0-day (signatureless?) malwares ?

This question may not make sense at all but would like to still give it a go:

what are the risks our EMC VMAX SAN to ransomwares & how are the attacks/
infections likely to occur?

Our MS Exchange's huge partitions are on SAN as well as our servers' database
& applications partitions.  Our PCs/laptops don't use SAN.

I can see the largest malwares & ransomwares being blocked is via our emails
(in thousands or tens of thousands monthly) compared to only a hundred or
less being blocked by endpoint AV & proxy : so how is this translated to our SAN?

A very unique question from our management.

So how do we mitigate ransomwares risks to SAN?  Just by endpoint AV & our
email filtering (which we use Proofpoint which reported tons of ransomwares
& ransomware downloaders being blocked monthly)

Are there any free options?
