    These programs are only effective, if you are totally uninterested in computer security or to clean heavily infected machines. On the other hand, scanners are the only means to know if something malicious is already on your system.

    I check my systems only 2-3 times a year, and without sounding arrogant, not one single malicious object was ever found in 5 years.
     
  6. Threatfire for on-access, MBAM for on-demand.

    For me it's PrevX 3.0 realtime/on demand and MBAM as an extra on demand.


    Cheers
