I've seen this touted a few times in here and always wanted to ask:
What does this do that the simple Group Policy tweak to disable autorun on all drives/partitions doesn't do?
Works on "Home" versions of Windows that don't have gpedit. Not sure what advantage it has over the @SYSoesNotExist hack, though, other than maybe being more fine-grained (which should be a non-issue, I mean how could autorun even theoretically be useful?).
Sandboxie is the security program I can't do without.
Did you get rid of your File Shredder program? I don't see it in your sig. By the way, if you didn't have your website in your sig, I wouldn't have found out about File Shredder. I run it everyday now, thanks
Yes, for now I don't use it. Nice to see that you like it. Do you use it to delete files you don't need or to delete free disk space each day?
Just for files I don't need. I use PrivaZer to free disk space.
OK. I never heard of PrivaZer before. I will give it a try and see how it goes.
PrivaZer is extremely thorough at what it does, it literally cleans out more than the average cleaner. If you're worried about your privacy and or extra junk...it's the tool to have.
It also gets updated constantly...I swear, the developer never sleeps
AppGuard. It used to be MBAM but prevention with AppGuard practically eliminates the need for it as HMP can be used to scan downloads.
yeap very true
I purchased Malwarebytes Pro and was running it in real-time for awhile, but ever since I purchased AppGuard, I don't see a reason to run Malwarebytes in real-time anymore.
Looking at AppGuard.
Wondering about compatibility.
Support FAQs say:
Can anybody post the section they reference?
I can't do without HitmanPro.
The whole of CIS or just the FW w/D+
As years show I definetely cannot do without the only one program:
[MOVE] . . Comodo Internet Security [/MOVE]
Hmmm you quote me before the post how's that?
The whole CIS. Now its av component deserves to be named among the best avs.
LOL. It's magic! I think I'm the first ever in this forum to have done this.
Ah glad to hear. Um Comodo AV one of the best AVs?
I understand your sarcasm - detection of av component of Comodo really was very weak. But it was many years ago - look for instance at 3-years average of detection as Shadowserver here Comodo's av is 7-th.
Then go to 2-years average - it's 5-th.
Then go to 1 year average - it's 4-th.
Then 180-days and 90-days - it's 4-th again.
Then 60-days and 30-days it's 3-d.
So you can see it's really among the best and improving.
And this is only about detection, and as for protection against antimalware - CIS is really the best. That's why I have been using CIS on several computers for more then 2 years and they have never been infected.
That's because FW and D+ maybe have prevented malware and perhaps the AV had nothing to do with your pcs never getting infected. But anyways, I'm not a hater. In fact I love Comodo FW/D+. And it's good to know Comodo AV is improving. But I do not think it's appropriate to put it in the same class as the best ones just yet.
one day or other day the antivirus fail cause hackers are ahead all the time now proactive is the way to go as prevention is always better than the cure
AppGuard is my one security program you can't do without
No, in this tests only detection is used. FW and D+ of CIS gives 100% protection even without av-component. That's why I love it.
It was ages ago when av-component of Comodo was weak. Now it's on a par with the best, though their protection is weaker then Comodo's.
Hmm....I think I'll to try out CIS to see it myself.
