PLEASE look up the definition of TROJAN (what McAfee THINKS it is).

NOW look up the definition of VIRUS (what YOU think McAfee said it is).

NOW download, install, and RUN both
1 - MalwareBytes AND
2 - Spybot.
Find anything?

NOW go to the
3 - Free Panda Scan.
Find anything?

You want US to REPEATEDLY do something and YOU have NOT done ANY of those things. NUTZ on that!
DO WHAT WAS TOLD (#1, #2, and #3) and report back! PERIOD!

Now... KNOCK IT OFF!!!!

Also, just for the record, McAfee isn't the worst antivirus out there ....

I think there are NO limits to "worse" :ph34r: , but quite frankly, I would be puzzled by a product that not only detects an "own" app as a virus, but additionally affirms that it has deleted it while it hasn't..... :whistle:

:lol:

Of course McAfee is sometimes totally off but i've seen almost all other antivirus doing similar things or worse:
- Kaspersky is indexing files and stores its index in the file %windir%\system32\drivers\fidbox.dat and you can't change its location. Just google fidbox.dat to see the side effects.
- F-secure is well known for its memory leaks.
- Symantec AV or Endpoint is most likely one of the worst with it virus definitions using as much space as %systemdrive% can handle and then simply stoping working. Also its default settings are the worst.
- Sophos doesn't offer a good protection. It let some viruses bypass its protection even when it detect them (conficker for example).
- TrendMicro often get problem updating and older version might be detected as virus by the newer one's. But all in all it is not that bad.
- AVG is a little better than sophos but it let conficker spread on some computers.
For the others, i didn't had the opportunity to see them working in the real world so i can't tell.

Also, there are two important things that a good antivirus should be able (at least in my opinion):
- Properly detecting new viruses (most antivirus can do that properly). And it includes having a good virus definitions update scheme (that's were some are behind).
- Being able to remove viruses (quarantine or delete depending on your settings). And there, the gap between them might be huge.
Most of the time, end users still need to report strange behavior because their AV didn't properly do its job. For example, i'm pretty sure that almost all AV out there wouldn't be able to stop conficker (of course with some specials conditions like having a weak administrator password) as conficker has dictionnary attacks on admin$ shares.

I use Symantec. I don't say it's "the best" though. TWICE in SEVEN years and "stopped" both times.
1 - In reference to "default settings", what AV (or any software for that matter) doesn't require "tweaking"
2 - As far as the "space" there is a way to "clean" the "bloat". Got any STATS for space utilization on "the others"?
3 - Extremely opinionated, aren't you?

Back on Topic - FALSE FALSE FALSE POSITIVE! Live with it! ;)

I found this site with a lot of data and stats. In 2011 McAfee got the award of the lowest false positive detected and this is very strange.
But it doesn't have the size of virus defs. I looked the system requirement of many of them and for most of them the requirement is in the real the bare minimum.

Symantec endpoint virus defs take about 3GB (with the default number of virus defs: 3) and symantec say it only require 1GB.
Trend officescan virus defs take 700MB (still with 3 virus defs) and Trend say it only require 350MB.
McAfee Viruscan virus defs take 400MB (but with 2 virus defs) and McAfee say it only require 500MB.
Kaspersky virus defs take about 800MB (but with 2 virus defs) and Kasperky say it only require 500MB.

As i work everyday with different AV in production environments, i get to see many scenarii where each AV behave differently.
For example, sometimes symantec antivirus service will take 100% cpu for hours (or until we restart its service) just because it isn't able to update properly its virus defs.
This problem appear to have been corrected with symantec endpoint.

I told you in your OTHER thread. SOME folks do NOT install a "firewall" but use "TCP/IP Filtering".

NO I will NOT go into "explaining that"! Do a little research ON YOUR OWN.

The whole POINT of this Forum is to HELP - NOT "Please hand it to me on a silver platter"... ;)

BTW, there are MANY threads on MSFN about "Firewalls" and "Antivirus" Products. TRY SEARCHING FIRST rather than asking for something that's ALREADY THERE (See that "gear" at the top right? CLICK IT!).

Submix8c, not sure why all the drama... :unsure:

Anyways, it is obvious to me (in light of this research) that Windows XP is a virus! Posted Image

Oh, and while I also use MSSE, I don't rely on it protecting anything. Last I checked version 1 of MSSE, it didn't even detect the EICAR file! :rolleyes:

NO reason whatsoever to be happy :no: , as the XP virus is an evolution (bloated) of the 2K one :ph34r: .
