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.

The Chubb contact person I liaise with told me all their customers are recommended
not to install AV on Chubb's custom Windows CCTV recording server as it will cause
severe perf issue & will conflict with some sort of built-in security feature.

Anyone know what is this feature?  is it apps whitelisting, AV or ??   The person I
liaise appears uncertain

I had superantispyware installed and tried to update the version with its popup and kept getting an error. So I uninstalled it and was ready to reinstall the latest free edition, when I decided to check its latest reviews, which were middling. I have (on a WIN7PRo/64 machine) already installed Nod32 and Malwarebytes Premium. Do I need an antispyware program in addition to these two, and should I return to SuperAntiSpyware, assuming I can get the new version to install.

Windows 7 64 bit on three client computers.  They have McAfee Total Protection.  I want to put on Malware-bytes Anti-Malware Premium 3.0
1. Is McAfee adequate protection against malware and randsomware?
2. Will it conflict with Malware-bytes if I put it on the computers?
Thanks,
Alan

There is this annoying Avast Password pop-up every time I login to a website that requires a password.   I didn't install this app.   I installed Avast Small Office for evaluation and then uninstalled it.   Next installed Avast Business Security successfully to 10 workstations and 3 servers.   Works great!   However now we have an annoying pop-up.   Business Security Support states that Avast Password doesn't come 'with' either of the above software apps and they can't support it,  so I'm at a loss on how it got there..... on ALL 13 devices.    Can't uninstall it since it's not noted in Windows Uninstall utility.   So it's an ad..... asking us to activate/purchase it?   Any clue on how to get rid of this?

Thanks

I have McAfee installed on my machine.  I've been using McAfee on all my machines for over 10 years without issue.

This morning I tried opening McAfee because I wanted to use the networking tools but it won't open.

I double click on the McAfee icon and the open form with the big red 'M' in the middle shows for a couple seconds, then dissapears.  Nothing else follows.  I tried opening from the desktop and from the program menu and the same thing happens.  I shut the computer completely off and turned it back on but the same thing happens when trying to open McAfee.

I tried it on my other computers and noticed the same thing.  When I shut the other computer completely off and turned it back on MvAfee opens up as it should.

I've noticed this behavior before but never followed up on it.

Not sure if it matters but I also have Malwarebytes running on this computer.

Any ideas?

Just wonder whether those zero-day attack can be protected with Symantec Endpoint 14 - Proactive Threat Protection and Network and Host Exploit Mitigation.

I am told that enable SONAR can prevent zero-day attack. Is it correct ?

Thx

Hello.

I had a problem with one computer in Kaspersky Security Center so I removed it from Managed computers and then also from Unassigned computers.

After that Kaspersky has discovered this PC but it also says that there is no Network Agent or Kaspersky Endpoint Security installed or running.

Physically they are both installed and running.

How to resolve it?

Thank you.

Hi all,

I had Sophos EndPoint installed on my computer, i uninstalled it and installed Symantec EndPoint. Now on outlook it shows disconnected, I cant ping any computer on domain, but i am getting the right IP address. I uninstalled SEP, nothing changed, i took the computer off domain, put on it on workgroup, and then put it back on Domain, still nothing changed.

Anyone else has experienced it? or know how to fix it?
thanks.

Dear All,

i have an endpoint security system called Lumension("HEAT") installed and i have McAfee as well on my server.

i make all the required exclusions on McAfee and everything is working fine and perfect.

Then i got a new server Dell R730 so we took a full image from the old server and restore it on the new physical server (128 GB Ram and 24 core).

after that CPU usage is going up to 90% and always very high
one time 1% then 70% then 90% ...etc all the time.

i have did all troubleshooting using Procmon , process explorer, taking dumps .....

my findings are :

if i stop only McAfee then CPU usage go below 20%
if i stop my product only then CPU go below 10%
if i keep both products running and at the same time i run Procmon then CPU usage goes below 20% which is very strange!!!


what i should do?
should i change the server and make fresh installation? instead of an image?
note: i have updated all drivers and install all windows updates.

any solution?

Attempting to install avast! Small Office Administration software to run from my Win7Pro workstation to communicate with 8 other Win7Pro workstations, one SBS2011 server and two Server 2008 R2.  Although I can deploy avast! to all the workstations from mine (STAT02), I get the following error when viewing the Network:DefaultGroup in avast!  'This computer has never successfully connected to avast! Small Office Administration."

avast! support suggests that this is a firewall issue and that I need to disable the windows firewall in the Domain Group Policy.   This will at least help in determining whether it is a firewall issue or something else.   IF it is determined to be a firewall issue, then I can turn the policy back on and configure the firewall to allow certain ports.    So here is what I did:

      From SBS2011 server
      Run CMD (run as administrator)
      gpmc.msc
         Group Policy Management
            Forest:xxxx.local
               Domains
                  xxxxx.local
                     Default Domain Policy (right click) and Edit

   Default Domain Policy

i have windows 10 pro

my employer asked me to purchase for my office PC the most strong antivirus/internet security that is available in market, regardless of its price. i need to recommendation for antivirus/internet security where it is the most strong in protection against attacks, malwares, ransomwares, viruses and it is light and it is not too heavy, meaning that it will not suck large portion of my machine's resources.
something that will work efficiently  and is lightweight.

grateful if you could share your experience and what are you using and how is the experience with your security software

The user has a HP server running Microsoft Server 2003 that they only use for internal file sharing and running FileMaker Server 6.
They occasionally use Firefox to go to a website.  Office 2007 is on it, but Outlook isn't configured as email.
All the Windows updates that can be found have been installed.

MalwareBytes 2 is installed, along with the stand-alone MalwareBytes Anti-Exploit for Business.  MalwareBytes 3 didn't upgrade properly.

This is a 3-computer office (with the server)

Anything else that I can do?

Thanks

Our 2008 and 2012 servers are supposedly up-to-date. But I don't see any reference to KB 4013389 in the Windows Update "installed" list. I don't see any update above 301XXXX.

Is there a way to download KB 4013389 independently? I can't find a link for this.
