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.

To protect our corporate users from being compromised when they
connect to outside Wifi (which may be potentially rogue Wifi), is it
feasible if we implement MS Direct Access or Always-On-VPN?

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd759144(v=ws.11).aspx
https://directaccess.richardhicks.com/tag/directaccess-alternatives/

The products above would establish a tunnel so the rogue Wifi can't
steal credentials nor data & with VPN established, I suppose malwares
can't infect the laptops as the rogue Wifi has no connection to the laptop
(tunnel-protected) or did I get this idea wrong ie can still get infected
even with such tunnel??

We still want the users to be able to access Internet but protect them
in the event they're using a rogue Wifi

Dear Team, our server 2008R2 has many AVP.exe processes (Kaspersky Endpoint Security) that we could not stop. It showed errors when we tried to end task:

We also tried some commands on CMD/PowerShell but it did not help. Administrator has FuLL-control right but it keep showing "Access is denied"
taskkill /PID "number" /F
Get-Process -Name "avp" | Stop-Process -Force


Could you please suggest? Many thanks!

I have a Laptop (Windows 10 Pro 64 bit) that is infected with the virus/malware that displays a Microsoft window/logo claiming that the laptop is infected and I need to call this 1-800 number to reach a Microsoft support technician to resolve the infections/issues on the laptop.  I know it is not a valid 800# and it is an infection.  This is the third time in a year this has popped up on this laptop.  I feel that I am NOT cleaning the laptop properly !!!  Perhaps missing a "Trojan package" or something.  Any suggestions for a proper thorough scanning/cleaning/removal process on this Laptop.  Thank-you

I need to find out if my desktop can be fixed for free, using my own skill level and get my pop ups and get the virus out of my computer.  I do not have  much savy on computers and i really like using but the last two years or longer, it's been going on. Linus 17 has kept every type of self help from being done. That's why i am here, because i am at my wits end. Can you help me at all, for free, or is it out of the question?  Desperate in the Hoosier state, and i do not mean maybe.

How to generate and install SSL certificate for Avast?  -- Never worked with SSL certificates, always had someone else do it.    I am installing the Avast Business Management Console on my Win7 Pro workstation to manage the installation of Avast Business Pro on 3 servers (SBS2011, Server 2008, Server 2008 R2) and 7 desktops (Win7Pro, Win10Pro).   During the installation it prompts as to whether 'I have my own SSL certificate'  OR  'I don't have my own SSL certificate'.   The install states that 'We will generate a self-signed certificate which is good enough for temporary testing purposes.  However, it does not meet high security standards, therefore we recommend to use own SSL certificate.'  

Can you point me in the right direction?

Thank you.

I am currently running Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0 on one of our computers.  I am getting an error in the event log that states "The Symantec Eraser Control driver service failed to start due to the following error:  The specified procedure could not be found."  Does anybody know if the Symantec Eraser Control driver is part of the Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0 package or if it is leftover from a previous version of antivirus installed on this computer.  If it is leftover, what is the proper method to uninstall it?

Firefox Browser is being held by this screen
Browser MessageA women's voice tells me something about "invalid version and computer is locked".  Also to "Call Microsoft support at 866-371-0354"

I go this message while trying to play a video on Motrorcycle (RacerX) site I've visited daily for at least he last 10 years.

I shut off and turned back on the computer but every time I open Firefox this appears.  I am not having any trouble with MS Explorer, which is how I got to the EE site to post this question.

I use McAfee Total protection.  When I open McAfee to do a virus scan, the scan button seems to be disabled.  I click it and nothing happens.

What can I do to get rid of this virus?

This is a Windows 7 Pro machine

I have been using Delphi 7 in Windows 10 for quite awhile.

I use ESET Internet Security as my anti-virus/anti-malware protection.

A recent update in ESET has caused problems with D7 - when I run a program from the IDE, the program never starts - it appears as though ESET is blocking the "integrated debugger" from attaching to the process.

I can disable all protection and everything works.

I'm looking for alternate solutions - something I might be able to add as some type of exception rule in the anti-virus to allow the integrated debugger to work.

Is the integrated debugger actually "integrated" in delphi32.exe, or is it called by the IDE?  That is, is there a DLL or exe that can be identified as exception to anti-virus program?

TIA.

We've been a long-time user of Trend OfficeScan. Small company, about 120 users.  VMware, mix of Windows 7 & 10. About 20 mobile users on MS Surface or SurfaceBook.

I've been combing Trend's website trying to find the difference between OfficeScan and WorryFree. On what basis should I choose one over the other? Is there any compelling reason to switch from OfficeScan to WorryFree?

User believed that their computer was hacked, and some sort of malware was sending out messages.
They received several phone calls from friends who had gotten blank email messages.

I installed and ran Malwarebytes, which removed 717 components of Potentially Unwanted Programs. McAfee had been previously installed, but that protection didn't notice what Malwarebytes found and quarantined.

I noticed that there was something, possible an extension, that was added onto chrome.  I

Is there anything else that I should run?
What's a good way to check if emails are still being sent out?


Thanks.

This is not a tech question but looking for suggestions. I want to send email to non - tech end users to follow some best practices to avoid spam emails / malware / spyware/ viruses on their computers. They are using Office365, Dropbox, internal file server, heavy internet browsing, Outlook.

Watching out for certain type of emails, avoid possible threats by following good practices etc.

If you can send me some links of good articles that I can simply forward to end users for them to read up on to  increase their knowledge that would be great!
I can google few articles myself but wanted to see if anyone have their favorite articles or blog posts already.

Thanks!

Hello I can't seem to remember how to update my client's McAfee on my closed loop test network.  It's been a little bit so let me explain what i can remember, I would update the definitions / versions on laptop, then copy those files into a repository on share which all client are pointed to for their updates.  That's all i remember & having a hard time getting it working again.  I can't remember which files need to be copied & where there at..

Thx
