  1. The AV testing world is little more than a snapshot in time; one month KIS is 'the one', next month it's Bitdefender etc. Most companies have teams dedicated to passing these tests, essentially it's their attempt to 'game' tests for better scores and marketing bragging rights. Eset performs roughly the same each and every month in a detection score of 98%-99% with very few, if any, FP. Windows 10 updates that bork many a PC are reason enough not to use MSE! Please read sysadmin on Reddit if you need further proof. Plus MSE creates a system drag (refer to AV-C performance test); Eset had
  2. There has always been an interesting difference between AV-T and AV-C in performance tests; Eset fares far worse with AV-T than it does with AV-C. I have asked the forum admin to look into the AV-T results as they are often quoted in print magazines and on tech websites. I think this is largely because AV-T have an easy to copy & paste report format whereas AV-C make you read the test results. Moreover, I have used and/or trialled KIS, Bitdefender, Avira, Avast, AVG, Norton and Sophos. I found each more resource heavy on my PC and at least two blue screened my PC. Anyone who has
  3. We can therefore ignore AV Test because they are testing a defunct version.
  4. I'm happy with the results of Eset.; perhaps Eset should copy other AV organisations and create an team with the sole remit to pass AV tests with a 100% detection rate. As for MSE, 14 false positives and system drag (according to the same test organisation) means a 'no thanks' from me. I've seen way too many test darlings come and go over the last decade not to be too fussed by the results; I prefer hands-on over bench tests.
  5. Do you trust It? - Yes. I've been a customer since Nod32 version 2.5! Do you trust the company ESET? - Yes. As, when you are using Anti-virus whenever It's on your PC or your phone. - Use Mobile Security on my tablet and phone. You are giving the AV kind of full control on your device - Yes. Like that thing happend to Kaspersky after this I would not trust them - Most of which was a media beatup from North America. Far more backdoors in Windows than Kaspersky has.
  6. Same happening for me now too. I deleted some log file and up popped the live grid error message and this may be just a coincidence. A minute later & as I type this, Live Grid is back on.
  7. Hi Brent, I would have thought so as Eset did detect the virus not long after the discovery was made. From the information you've posted, you should be fine. Futher, I was using the portable version of CCleaner which does not install itself. You can find the portable version on Major Geeks (https://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/ccleaner_portable.html) Be aware that the company behind the program will often break the link to the portable version and you may end up in a loop trying to download the portable version. If you have the time, read the comments on Major Geeks download
  8. @BrentMc Please read through the following link https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/how-to/security/ccleaner-malware-incident-what-you-need-to-know-and-how-to-remove/ It's a step by step guide to diagnose and remove any issues.
  9. Anti-Russian articles in the USA media is no surprise at this time. It wasn't too long ago the USA were seen as the 'bad guys' e.g. hxxp://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/07/05/americans_to_fess_up_to_spying_on_europeans/ Some of the comments on the first story on the Washington Post are as nutty as the story itself. Xenophobia at its worst.
  10. Not to sure about Glary but I do use Wise Disk Cleaner Portable version. It was highly rated by Major Geeks and does work really well.
  11. Sadly, you'll still get people thinking Win Defender is all one needs, even with safe browsing habits. I'll stick with Eset for the time being
  12. Same here (and I'm in the southern hemisphere). I'll give Eset time to sort itself out as the current version works fine.
  13. Whom to believe...AV-C shows a different viewpoint for 2017: https://chart.av-comparatives.org/chart1.php?chart=chart2&year=2016&month=7&sort=1&zoom=2 Eset 99.2% with zero false positives or 99.5% with user interaction MS 96.6% with 9 false positives Let's look at the last part of 2016: https://chart.av-comparatives.org/chart1.php?chart=chart2&year=2016&month=7&sort=1&zoom=2 Eset 99.5% with zero false positives MS 97% with 23 false positives!! Look here at the lastest gaffe: https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/04/03/ms_defender_blube
  14. A test is little more than a snapshot at the time the test is completed..and as far as I'm aware several of the big name labs have special departments that are tasked with getting the highest scores in these tests so they are akin to VW's emission testing department That said, I'll take 99.7% detection rate with zero false positives over 100% with 11, 4 or even 1 false positive(s). Plus I've found ESS is an AV suite that is very light on the PC's that I run it on; I can't say the same for a few of the other vendors.
