best free anti malware anti spyware anti virus???

Post by weedguru_animal » Mon Jan 30, 2012 9:17 am

I have been through this routine so many fucking times, that as I tread this well trodden path once again, aiming to rid myself of some virtual CUNT malware, which seems to block my log-in attempts to various websites, I am thinking...its high time that I made a thread, for us all to pour some information onto an issue that the vast majority of Windows users go through sporadically or often.

Presently, I am using Windows 7. My security is Avast Anti Virus, and Commodo firewall. I also use Windows Defender, as well as now and then, when my system seems too slothful to ignore delving into its innards, with the appropriate tools, to clean up whatever much is causing the SLOTH; malwarebytes anti-malware.

So...firstly...am I kicking myself in the balls, repeatedly, by using the FREE programs?

Secondly...what do you folks use?

Mac OS X.

No but for real, maybe you should consider getting paid software.
I personally recommend checking oneself for OCD at least once every 5 minutes.

Not too sure as I'm on a Mac. My brother uses the free Malwarebytes, RKill, and Tdsskiller. He's still got all kinds of crap on his machine though and is working on fixing it. I'll let you know if he finds a solution, he says he's going to start posting at the Malwarebytes forum for support.

I have Avast, but I'm not using their free stuff, I forked out for a 1 year sub.

well..spybot seem to have sorted me out, although some lingering damage remains. I seem done with firefox, so am switching to Chrome, or perhaps even orca...i assume my registry remains a little fucked.
