Can anyone recommend some spyware/malware software which they have found effective.
I have malwarebytes and AVG Anti-Virus installed however yesterday I encountered two infected sites one of which went through a whole process of warning me I had been infected with spyware/malware/tupperware you name it.
Obviously I am dubious of the reality of this but I dont have a spyware protector remover installed.
Unlike malwarebytes free SpywareTerminator offers real time protection click here It can be a bit of a pain as it learns an appropriate ruleset, but when done it pretty well locks a system down. Not knocking malwarebytes as it's a good scanner, but you do need to buy the pro version for real time coverage.
i hope you may have got lucky but it's worth noting in future if you get any warnings popping up that are not from your anti apps then as quick as you can just hit restart on your pc and you will normally get away with it-i'm sure someone may know something to hit that is quicker than the restart but thats what i always hit :o)
As stated MBAM is not real time, however it's a great program. If I were u (and I'm not of course) I would consider switching to, what many think is, a superior AV Prog, & that wud be Avast, which is also free. Maybe if u'd had Avast, it would have warned and blocked the malicious sites before they had a chance to load in your browser. Worth thinking about, possibly.
