As you know, brand does not assure you of the best.

Re: best antivirus
by Kees_B Forum moderator / January 4, 2018 4:01 AM PST

First of all, you need to ask yourself if you want a mere antivirus program, or a full Internet Security suite that offers much more protection. Once you know that, you can start looking for a good one that offers what you need.

You've asked a few times
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / January 10, 2018 8:11 PM PST

And let's be clear here. No known AV will protect against all threats. So why don't these threats wipe out all PCs?

The answer is that you are part of the security system. These AV systems can only protect KNOWN THREATS. If there is a new threat, it can get on your PC IF YOU PARTICIPATE IN THE INSTALLATION OR EXPLOIT.

Anyone that thinks otherwise is just new.

There are no things like a Norton virus. Norton is one of the anti-virus programs.

The best prevention against ransomware (if that's what you're talking about) is having an offline backup.
The best protection is good online behaviour. But you'll be able to find antivirus programs that claim they offer some form of protection, and even special anti-ransomware programs that let you whitelist certain programs to change certain folders.

Never heard of such a virus.
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / January 16, 2018 8:04 AM PST

I do read where folk would go get Norton via a Torrent "Pre-CRACKED" and well this story doesn't end well.

Also, a PC is not reliable enough to run without backups. If you run without backups, even if you had the mythical antivirus that stops everything you still have the PC reliability issue.

It looks that you only need to improve your backups now.

Sorry guys, In my previous post, I have mistakenly written Norton Virus, Actually I want to write that some file corrupted by virus and I used Norton AV for that to recover my files, But It had taken too much of my time to recover files. Sorry for the issue guys.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
