I wish people who wrote virus programs used their time more productively. I’ve been hit yet again on my older PC which is still running XP. MacAfee, provided by my cable company, failed to stop it. Last time, I went crazy, trying all kinds of things and ultimately reset it from the beginning. I never got around to putting all my backed up data back on the PC this time.
Instead of the stress this time, I’d like to try to put a positive spin on this. I’d like to ask the community what their favorite anitvirus tools are and their favorite web sites for advice on problems like this are.
I’ll start by saying that Malware Bytes (MB) really impressed me to the point that I never got around to reinstalling my old favorite SpyBot Search and Destroy. Unfortunately, the current culprit has rendered MB unusable as attempting to run a scan causes the PC to reboot immediately. So, what is your current favorite tool?
