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.

My colleague has managed to configure one of the PC as Super-Agent ie
other PCs could get the McaFee AV signature updates from it or

Q1:
is this a 'push' update ie from Super Agent, it pushes to the slave PCs
or it's a pull ie Slave PCs pull signature updates from it?

Q2:
How do we configure the slave PC portion (screen by screen will be good)?

Hello,

A newly installed Dell all-in-one computer with windows 10 pro got a popup malware named "RDN/Trojan.worm!055BCC2967574 Infection”. Attached file shows the popup.

The installed anti Malwarebyte did not detect anything. I ran the app manually again. In addition I downloaded few more and scanned the computer , neither of these tools find anything..

Last week He hit with similar popup and again the tools claimed his PC is cleaned.
Can anyone advise if I should take any step further or his computer in fact is clean?

The following are the tools that I used.
1- Malwarebytes (Paid License).
2- Malwarebytes Anti Exploit (Paid License).
3- HitManPro (Evaluation - Free download).
4- Adware Cleaner (Evaluation- Free download).
5- Zemana (Evaluation- Free download)

Thank you.

Inherited computers from another IT company that have Trend Micro Security Agent installed on them without the uninstall password, does anyone know how to go about changing the password to uninstall. It's causing network issues.

I am thinking of the following scenario. A Windows 8 or 10 computer hangs on startup. You suspect it may be a virus. You can't boot into the GUI but you can use a boot rescue USB and get to a command line. Is there an antivirus executable you can run from the command line? Preferably one that's free.

I want to provide a way of excluding a file from some anti-virus software's scanning routine for all my users.

Entering the file path in the AV software for exclusion for a single user works for me. see below:

X:\Users\johns\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\6.0\                   [this works for the user johns]

How can I describe this generically so that the exclusion will work for all users

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

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?

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:
