Could you explain in more detali, what you mean by an "un-asked for email from CNET"?
Additionally, I would urge you to read, "IOBit Steals Malwarebytes' Intellectual Property", and then consider whether or not, you wish to install their software.
'..Malwarebytes has recently uncovered evidence that a company called IOBit based in China is stealing and incorporating our proprietary database and intellectual property into their software. We know this will sound hard to believe, because it was hard for us to believe at first too. But after an indepth investigation, we became convinced it was true. Here is how we know.
Personally, I would stick with what you have and steer clear of IOBit's software!
I have received an un-asked for email from CNET regarding the above programme. There are apparently two, a free one and one to pay for.
There are aparently other programmes that are available free once this programme has been downloaded (or maybe before.) I have seen their names and the one that appeals to me is 10bit Security 360 free.
I have two questions -
1. I have AVG free 9, Adaware, Spybot. The fact that this A.S.Care purports to "optimize system, fix registry free, repair and speed up my computer", I have no knowledge if this is true or if it is any better than or in conjunction with or even compatible with the three programmes that I have now.
2. The 10 bit security 360 claims to be "an advanced malware & spyware removal utility that detects, removes the deepest infections, and protects your PC from various of potential spyware, adware, trojans, keyloggers, bots, worms, and hijacker." I have no knowledge about these security claims. So the same question for this as above, please!
If anyone could advise me whether to obtain these or one of these programmes, bearing in mind what I have at the moment. Would I be better off or not etc?
Thank you for any input in advance.
