but there are rogue or not trustworthy anti-malware programs. I suggest to not run online scanner once a week or bi-weekly to find out if anything 'slipped-in' your protection tools:
ESET Online Scanner: http://www.eset.com/onlinescan/
A-squared Web Malware Scanner: http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/ax/
SUPERAntiSpyware Online Scanner: http://www.superantispyware.com/onlinescan.html
Trend Micro Housecall: http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
F-Secure Online Scan: http://www.f-secure.com/en_EMEA/security/security-lab/tools-and-services/online-scanner/index.html
Ok so Im talking about the freebies. I currently have AVG free installed which scans daily i also have ad aware which runs ad watch live which has never found any issues which makes me wonder if it works efficiently. I also have a copy of IObit Security 360 which seems to find something each time i scan which i feel is a good thing as it makes me think its actually working. i also have a copy of malwarebyte anti-malware. with all these programs i run a scan about once a week.
I did have a copy of spybot but never seemed to find anything so uninstalled it. Is this mixture of programs effectuate enough? or should there be a different combination of programs that i should be using???
Thanks for your help
