Most of today's attacks are not stopped by either of those or many others. Folks continue to install malware and these either don't stop the USER from installing such or the MALWARE tells the user to turn such off during install.
The user complies and the malware installs.
-> This is why it's more up to the users to avoid the infections than the antivirus and scanners.
These are ok selections for the usual old pests so go ahead but remember that one can't rely on such to stop the flood.
He has an older like 2007 Dell laptop inspiron 1501 that I just had a new hard drive put in because believe it or not the one that came with the computer was like a 160GB!! So we only put in like a 320GB which sounds so funny because mine has like 2TB's... Anyways, he is mentally slow and has very little money, so I said that he should look into the free offerings? I kind of do not want to put a lot of money into this laptop as I was an idiot and bought it from QVC in 07 for $1700.00!! I know I did not even look at the hard drive or anything else!! So after he get a virus because he let the security suite coverage lapse, I got if fixed with new hard drive and decided I am not going to put more into it!! Hopefully the free offerings will help, I just need to know what are all the ones he needs and is it enough? Also do these things cover all the files he will use? He is currently enrolled in a local C.C. taking a simple math class- which is a miracle for him! Any ideas or help in which direction to go would be great!! Like I said 2x now it is on the cheap!!
Another problem is he thinks the StopZilla will help him? I say no!! What are your respones?
Thank you and I love this forum!!
