It's not hard to understand.

ah yes, sir titan, that is really true. now that the internet has developed much, you can just imagine my real surprise. everything is available with just a simple "type" and "enter" button on the keyboard. well, i am from the time of when i hear the word "email" is like something really big and that the person is really smart. now, i got my own email and it is not that hard to make one. this is why i am a bit scared because i know now how vulnerable computers can be at this time. i met a former student of mine before and he was telling some things about how to use the internet and what to avoid and what not to do so i am taking his advice quite seriously. also thanks to you for giving me time and giving advise on topics related to my concern. i will be sticking around more and try to share some of my own "discoveries" too so i too can help others who are like me or maybe even worse haha
Hello mates! Good day to you! Nice thread going on in here. Everybody does seem to have gotten worried by this virus, malware, trojans and other stuff eh? Sure is serious actually specially after having spent money on your computer or a new laptop only to have it go wacky because of a virus infection. That would totally be a shame. So, if you do want to protect your investment on your hardware then i strongly recommend you to have your protection. I saw this program on the internet before and got doubtful too whether it was nice or not. But as of today, i haven't stopped using it and it has proven its functionality when it comes to my protection. It also has parental control, firewall protection, and it does lock out those annoying viruses, spam, and even hacking. a good program to have in your computer system as i can say.

manually viewing a threat
If you are someone who knows what you are doing then I have a question for you. A virus or worm is like any other computer program right (made of codes). so what is the best technique for searching for and viewing a threat on ones computer?

What is the best free anti virus software?
I've used AVIRA for almost a year and it's good. It's helps speed up programs loading and maintains my pc in a good condition with a proper care and update all the time.

Not free again.
I tried a few free AV - Panda and AVG a couple of years ago, and viruses got through.
the last time I got a virus and it got by AVG and it then took over my browser and wouldn’t let me download anything.
I friend had PC tool on a flash drive but it would not allow it to copy.
I had the free trial of Cyberdefender on my system, but I hadn’t tried it and it told me to call their computer help line.
The service tech told me that some viruses would not let you install, download or copy programs as a way to protect themselves. They did a remote access to my system, and told me they could remove it because I have installed the free trial before I got the virus.
I like thier service and haven't reall had any problems since then.
I am sure there are some free AV that is good, but I am happy having someone to call cuz I really don't have time to screw with a virus issue.

I have been working in a local computer store for the last 5 years and we have a routine when cleaning viruses that include Avast, Avira, AVG, Malwarebytes, Kaspersky, and Eset Nod 32.
Since some of them clahs we actually have to dual boot with two windows OSs.
From what I saw I found that out of the free antiviruses Avast had the best record of finding viruses coupled with malwarebytes they pretty much did all the work there was to do.

Many antivirus software available for free but they come with some limitations like 1-2 months expiration, virus detection but no virus removal option etc. So better is buy some trusted antivirus software. There are lots of fine antivirus available Avira, Avast, AVG, Panda Cloud, Ecan you choose. If you want antivirus for single user they wont charge much also they offer their software at very competitive price becoz of great competition, by doing this you can assure your computer security and get free from uninstalling antivirus after expiration everytime.

I have to agree with you on that, I have tried the kaspersky trial version and it works really good, as long as the updates are present it should be very efficient.
