i read through a forum site and i saw a user talk negativity about free spyware and virus programs like avast and malwaire bytes, he says" if you stick with free antivirus like microsoft security essentials, avast, avg, etc. and free antispyware like malwairebytes antimalwaire you will be pestered to death with all kinds of junk. Including rogues. free antivirus do and spyware not stand up to rogues. and they suck at detecting them. A lot of them can't stand up to trojan mal ware. If you really don't want this to happen again step up to the big boys. Get Kaspersky, or norton 360 .End of problem. have had norton over 4 years. I haven't been infected with anything in going on 5 years. Kaspersky is the big dog. If you are fed up with putting up with all around malware, Get norton, or Kaspersky.
