    i had like since july 2007 that i dont run any antivirus or antispyware in my computers,only like testing like to see speed compabilities isues but never scaning for malware,but yesterday i dedicated some time to scan for the first time to see what's up i used malwarebites,superantispyware,spyware terminator,spybot search and destroy, avira free and to my surprise didnt find nothing only 5 tracking cookies:D meaning that my proactive security is really doing it's job:thumb: Good job Defensewall,malware defender and processguard:thumb: :thumb:this is freaking cool

    Its wondefull how we can Have a few applcation minus Anti this and that scanners and stay clean even when we test malware samples purposely and come back clean.Then we see some running enough security programs to fill ten computers and then get infected anyways,Sometimes less is more.:thumb:

    this forum is biased!
    yep, defensewall definatly keeps out the bad guys.

    used to use it, but dont now since prevx brought out edge.

    why dont i use it now, to be honest... it kinda turned into a computer hassle with all the trusted/untrusted goings on, install new programs trusted/untrusted, plus there were other niggles i didnt like.

    would i go back to defensewall, certainly.... but will i, who knows.... :)

    Software matters less, the user matters most.

    I tried to explain to my wife how to use trusted/untrusted routine on her notebook. She looked at me and said: "Are you crazy? Beside, why IE must be untrusted it is not a virus?"

    So, I unistalled trusted/untrusted software and installed Avira again.

    Edit: typo :)

    jmonge, you know I have a lot of respect for you, but I will bet you, you could have done the same thing with nothing, and had the same results.;)

    I'm kind of glad you posted that.
    My wife has been gently nudging me to remove trusted/untrusted from her pc.
    There goes that part of my hobby.

    jmonge, I think you're an enthusiastic and genuinely good guy. But I agree with trjam.

    You're a smart user, and your hobby/interest is testing reputable security software. You've tested tons of products. You're not going to get a virus testing security software.

    Just to illustrate the point. My brother is a programmer, moderates a very popular forum, has no AV, no security software just windows firewall. I load up every program and find not a thing. I finally got him to add threatfire. Asked him if he's ever seen an alert, and says it doesn't show anything! ;)

    ROFL! :D Sure is a funny story, but she is the average "Jane". It could be even worse! My brother would reply to me "And i am supposed to think every time i run an application whether i must put it to trusted or not?! Not likely. This thing is for you, geek, now leave me alone." o_O
