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.

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 …

Dear Team, we have Server 2008 R2 acting as VPN server with Routing and Remote Access role. However, we suffered a reliability problem when we always have to restart service in order to run VPN smoothly. Sometimes, we even have to restart the Server, so that remote users can log in with their username/password.

We only have MSE antivirus, no any other special.

Can anyone explain please?

Has anyone implemented Malwarebytes Business EndPoint product as their primary tool for protection?   Or are you adding this onto your existing antivirus solution?   Installed on servers or just workstations?   Looking for a little feedback.   I'm currently testing Avast Business Security app.....   Small business, small budget.

Hi All,

We are using Sophos EndPoint antivirus, but now we have decided to change the product means we have started to evaluate different Antivirus products, reason we are changing Sophos because we got hit by Miner C virus few times, and Sophos EndPoint or there support was not able to resolve it
.
Anyways we are going to meet a tech and see live demonstration of Kaspersky, is that a good product? what others should we try? What questions should we ask them?

Our main need for Antivirus product is to provide secure environment to staff, generate reports, lock USB drives and also manage company mobile phones (Wipe/Lock if device gets lost), and exclude or include whitelisting's for applications, anything else we should look or explore in antivirus products?

thanks.

I have a number of customers on Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud who receive Email advising to renew their subscription as early as 3 months before their existing subscription expires.  The emails are from Symantec.

A number have asked me to purchase renewals for them and load these into the portal.

The renewal licenses are being consumed before the existing ones have expired - something that hasn't happened in the past.  A support request to Symantec has had the response can't fix get a refund, and renew again closer to the expiry date.

Has anyone else on SYM EP Cloud found this and have you resolved it.

So, just set up a new McAfee environment from scratch.  ePO 5.3.1, Agent 5.0.4, and Move 4.5.0 using the Multiplatform Client.  I've got an SVM Manager pointing towards a single SVM at present.

I put the MPC on a stand-by server, configured the policies, and successfully pointed the MPC to the SVM Manager which in turn pointed it to our SVM.  Great!  I downloaded a test malware file from GRC and unzipped it.  The infected EXE disappeared before it could be unzipped.  Awesome!

BUT - I didn't get a pop-up notification, which I really want.  Also, nothing appears in the 'C:\Quarantine' folder.  I've checked and double checked that:

1. The Move OAS policy is set to 'Notify users when a threat is detected on a on-access scan   (Multi-Platform only)'
2. This setting populated to the client, which reports EventSink 14 in the MVADM config.
3. The McTray icon is set to show in the Agent policies

And I've tried this in console and RDP sessions.  Nothing shows in the mvadm log.  Nothing is logged to the ePO threat detections tab for the server.  What's the deal?

Thanks!

So I have a newer Dell Optiplex 9020 that in Windows, I was getting an error AVG Antivirus 2016 from the system tray that "avgui.exe unable to locate component" - So i tried a repair of AVG, it failed, so I decided to uninstall/reinstall. This worked, but as soon as I rebooted it came up with the error message "Please press ctrl+alt+del to restart your computer" - nothing before it (like "failed hard drive" or anything) and nothing after it. This is all it does. I went into the BIOS and checked the hard drive etc and everything appears to be functioning, I have a feeling that the operating system was affected by the problem with AVG. Any ideas on how to restore without having to wipe out OS and reload?

I get error 577 when trying to start the Windows defender services. This is 'Windows cannot verify the digital signature for this file.' it goes on for a bit.
I am using windows 10 latest updates.

I have no other anti-virus installed. I had Superantispyware installed but removed it trying to solve this problem. Windows firewall is active.

On Demand Webinar: Networking for the Cloud Era

Ready to improve network connectivity? Watch this webinar to learn how SD-WANs and a one-click instant connect tool can boost provisions, deployment, and management of your cloud connection.

I've been tasked to help recover data from a Windows 10 PC where an elderly user allowed remote access to a scammer.

So far I've had the owner of the machine turn off the machine and reset his important passwords from another machine.

I'm planning to reinstall Windows on it from scratch.

Before I do that, I'm planning to try to recover personal data. I suppose there is a chance some or all of it has been encrypted with a bitlocker type tool, or at least some files are likely to be infected. I intend to get access to the files by booting up with a Linux Mint live DVD, since I'm familiar with Mint.

Q1. Is it going to be reasonably safe to start the PC up without running Windows and try to boot up from DVD (or maybe USB) into Linux Mint?

Q2. I think this machine predates secure boot technology, but I'm not sure what the implications of that are, other than that there is a risk the boot loader has been replaced perhaps? How would I deal with this?

Q3. Would it be safe to add the HDD into my own machine (which is dual boot Windows 10/Linux Mint machine, though I'd use Mint) and access the data that way, provided that I don't open any files? That would probably be quicker than a Mint live DVD. Obviously I wouldn't boot from the compromised disk.

Thanks!

Hello,

one of my co-workers got himself infected with the nasty Osiris randsomware.

I think we got it removed using multiple tutorials online, but I was unable to find a took to decrypt the files modified and make them work again. Kaspersky seams to have multiple tools, but nothing for Osiris.

Any ideas?

Hello! I'm new here and I want to ask you a question about this nasty .aesir extension virus or ransomware. My sons laptop is hardly infected with that scum and I don't know what to do... I've read Bleeping Computer article (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/locky-ransomware-now-using-the-aesir-extension-for-encrypted-files/)and they sate that
Unfortunately, at this time there is still no way to decrypt the Locky Ransomware.
but in the other hand I've found this guide in Google (http://soft2secure.com/knowledgebase/aesir-file-virus)that promote tool that (as they say) will help me to get rid of this infection. So I want to ask you where is the truth? Can this tool help me to resolve my problem?
Thank you for reply!

When booting system get screen "Enter Password" with an "Unlock" Button (image attached). I'm assuming this is some virus but can't find anything on it and can't get by this screen, no safe mode, nothing.

Hi
WE had a crypto virus few days ago and I had to restore the data from backup.
Now after I set the users ntfs permission it work for few minutes then the permission disappear.
For example I set permission for user mark as domain admin, system and mark with ful permissions.
When I look to all folder under mark's folder they are all OK
After an hour or so Mark folder still have full permission but all subfloders show mark on the permission list with not permission.
Is that because of some infection remaining. I scan the server and is all clean
