  1. Thank you Ritchie! It's cool you have a similar security config, I might try to install Comodo Firewall without the bloatware. There is a way to do that. Is it possible to install TDSSKiller and have it update automatically? Now, an update: I've installed a software called EMCO Malware Destroyer. It's a free on-demand virus scanner.
  2. I thought this may be of interest to some of you - if you haven't already heard about it. I hope discussions like these are allowed in this forum. Piriform, the developers of CCleaner and other softwares, has been acquired by Avast. The CEO of Piriform says: "We are happy to join Avast and are proud that CCleaner, which is used by about 130 million people, including 15 million Android users, will become part of their product line. Avast will maintain and support CCleaner separately from its current Avast optimization portfolio and will continue to give our customers the attention and service they are accustomed to." What do you think about this? Will you continue using CCleaner? Why/why not?
  3. UPDATE: Okay, so apparently it is not possible to exclude folders/files from the free version of RogueKiller (it seems), so I'll uninstall RogueKiller and switch to another on-demand scanner, any recommendations? Thanks in advance! And please also reply to my previous posts in this thread! :-)
  4. Hi Ritchie! I'm new to this forum and am looking forward to helping out as much as I can, and also asking questions that comes to my mind, as well as reporting issues/asking help for issues, if I find/have any! Why do you recommend excluding the whole Program Files folder(s)? There could be malware installed in this folder which is not found by Immunet, and the other AV's/AntiMalware's won't find it if the folder(s) is excluded. Regards, noddeye :-)
  5. UPDATE: I've now installed the above softwares and noticed a huge boot time and also the Immunet scanner process named "Sourcefire Connector" uses 97% of the CPU, which is an Intel i5-2540M @ 2.60GHz. Else than that, the computer works as fine as before! Oh, and in RogueKiller Free version, it's not possible to exclude (from what I can see) files/folders from the scan, so I'll hope it doesn't interfere with (or false positives) the other AV's/AntiMalware's.
  6. Hi! I'm noddeye and am new to this forum, and the Immunet antivirus. I will now share with you my new security config. This isn't yet tried but I'll install it if you think it's a good config. OS: Windows 10, Creators Update UAC level: Always notify Protection software: RogueKiller (on-demand) I was not able to find an exclusion feature in the free version, so I uninstalled this software. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free (on-demand) Panda Free Antivirus (real-time) Immunet (real-time) - ClamAV engine enabled TDSSKiller EMCO Malware Destroyer (on-demand) I will of course exclude the above software in each program. (However I'll not exclude MWB in MWB, or Panda in Panda, and so on. Because that is not recommended, right?) RAM optimization tool (even though I have 8 GB of RAM, is this nice to have?) CleanMem ------------------------- What do you think about this config? Comodo Firewall protects against zero-day threats, but does this config also protect me from that, without having Comodo Firewall? If not, is there another free alternative to Comodo Firewall - for zero-day protection? I'm asking because I want to be protected from everything, and don't want to use Comodo Firewall. I don't like Comodo, they include bloatware in the installation (at least in Comodo Firewall installer, I don't know about the others). Am I protected, or shall I add something more? Perhaps I've missed something that will protect me from a type of threat that the other protection softwares don't protect me from. Thanks in advance!
