    Alright so I have a new windows VPS from xss (the $35 package) and am going to be going hard with sb/profilerobot and some others where I could hit a potential virus. Now my question is do you guys run any virus protection on your Windows VPS or just not care and wipe it clean? I installed comodo and it has slowed it way down already. Any lightweight virus protection which install on server 2008? Does MSE work on it? Or should I just not bother...

    I don't bother but I don't download anything that might affect it like that. At best look for some type of firewall software.

    I have a forum autologin software for Xrumer sort of blasts and the issue is that some forums have been hacked and have viruses. It's not that i'm intentionally loading viruses up but out of a list of say 30k forums it's not impossible to see a virus or malware app loaded in a couple of them...

    I run vmware and have several XP machines. I just goto ninite.com when ever i create a new one and get all the stuff i would normally use, then once its set, take a snapshot of the device. That way if something seriously goes wrong i can just restore the VM.

    Why would avg and malwarebytes slow the computer down, what type of resources do you have allocated to it?

    Not that much only 1gb RAM which when running scrapebox + other = major slow down town. It's not a VM machine it's a VPS which makes the approach a little different.

    @JesusBack thanks for the advice I'll probably just run it w/o the virus protection. Goes against everything I know lol!

    Yup, never underestimate the whole rootkit crowd just waiting to jump on you by opening a website.

    Reinstalling the whole OS now and then seems the best solution for me. I've been looking for a way to use a virtual pc on my VPS for centuries, no go. That's too bad considering many tools require activation so it's been a big waste of time. But what else can we do.
