    hi all, i have been running eset smart security for a long time and was confident i was safe from spyware, malware etc. online. however, yesterday, the malware/spyware named avsuite got a hold of my system and i just managed to remove it. my internet browsers would not work, my computer was very slow and stupid pop-ups were being displayed on my screen every second. very frustrating. I was on the verge of reformatting my entire pc. the malware was removed after i scanned my computer with supeantispyware , but why was this malware not stopped before it took hold of my system by eset SS? it was not detected by superantispyware aswell (before doing a full system file scan).

    thanks,

    Hello,

    Fake anti-virus programs can be tricky to deal with.

    See this earlier message thread for more information.
