    On here there was a thread (cannot find) about Avast Antivirus new update release ws completely messed up.

    Anyone happen to know if its been fixed now?
    I also looked on the forum but cannot find anything related to remarking that the new release is fucked.

    Thanks so much

    Luffy 12 I wish I had your brain
    IF I install Kaspersky and NOD32 will they catch any keyloggers etc that Avast happened to miss?
    Ho wdo you run both those together without conflict? Kaspersky and NOD32 that is!

    no no no FUCKING NO!

    dont mix antivirus packages, end of story, im admin on the ppi forums, take my word for it when i say that kaspersky internet security is the best choice for sanity and protection combined, mix that with malwarebytes antimalware with its realtime shit enabled and you have about as good as you are going to get on a windoze box, kaspersky has always been the av app leader for as far as i can remember, avast still doesnt have proactive behavior based scanning in it and, as i said, from what iv learnt from dealing with ppi, kaspersky all the way

    nod is faster/lighter weight than kasp but kasp kicks its ass for system security by a longshot

    if you think you have a keylogger or similar, stick kasp on first after removing any existing av products, update and scan ur box, also go and do those annoying windows updates while ur at it, or at least kick them off and get them started (there is NO EXCUSE not to run them ALL) and go and make a post on 1 of the antimalware forums with the hijackthis log etc that they want and if there is anything leftover the are quite likely to find it

    subzero is right too, kis is DIRT CHEAP, pricewatch.com and search for it and normally youll find a 3user bundle (that means 3 pcs protected) for about 40 bucks if i remember right, all you need is the stupid number, if you have a valid license you can run the latest version straight up from kaspersky.com and just download the new versions as they come out, no paying to upgrade, your license is a license to the product, not to a freaking version

    luffy your a retard if you think av co's make the viruses, go back into your hole

    Thanks

    I only have 1 laptop and so would Superantispyware work as good with Kaspersky?
    If not when you say antimalware is that malwarebytesdotorg?

    sas is slow bloatware compared to malwarebytes, it used to be good but not really these days, u can get keys for mbam off of tpb that work though im not encouraging piracy blahblah ;)

    no im not affiliated with kasp and i know a lot more about malware than most people around here
