Preferred Solution: Great Deal: Kaspersky Antivirus 6.0 For Free

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

hi gents
i want to know the difference between kaspersky antivirus and kaspersky free . and what about this combo(KFA+ZAM premium+APPcheck free)+Malwarebyte antimalware on demand scanner . is KAV has antiphsing protection ??
 

Answer:Difference between Kaspersky Free and Kaspersky Antivirus

the only difference between KAV and KAF is that KAV has system watcher = behavior blocker. system watcher is one of the most powerful weapons of kaspersky that's why they charge you for that
they both have phishing protection

your combo looks OK to me. I can recommend that
but I don't agree with Malwarebytes because it seems redundant to me. zemana as the second opinion scanner is sufficient enough. It's realtime protection is different from its on-demand scanner. You will get better result with on-demand scanning than the realtime protection

Answer:Kaspersky Free Antivirus - Pro's & Con's

Hello,

I'm really like kaspersky products, but sometimes get me angry
So what you ask:

Pro:
- Light on system (yes in fact it is)
- Good signatures
- Really good Cloud
- Good virus removal ability
- Good web protect

Cons:
- No behavior block (but has heuristic)
- Ads sometimes
- Good alternative for Windows Defender but not paid or other free AV.
- Protection is good enough just for advanced users only i think.

After it was only available in Russian, Kaspersky released their free antivirus globally.

It is the same antivirus engine as their paid product, and supposed to be light on resources.

I am using windows 10 on my HP desktop. I currently use MES but am unable to access certain games, puzzles on GameScene (ie) . I thought perhaps changing my antivirus would remedy this situation. is Kaspersky antivirus totally free for download on home computer?

Answer:Is Kaspersky antivirus totally free for my home computer?

Err.. MES, presumably you mean MSE but known as "Windows Defender" on Windows 10. If that is preventing access to games and puzzles then most likely there is something wrong with them. MS Windows Defender is usually quite docile. You didn't ought to be looking for an anti-virus that lets them through if they are dubious.As for Kaspersky, as far as I am aware they don't do a totally free version, only a free trial. There are free AV's around, such as Bitdefender, but as I said that doesn't sound like the right way to go for your game problems. What exactly happens when you try to access them and is there some reason you suspect Windows Defender is implicated?Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Saw the news on Malwarebytes Forums (posted by sman), and decided that it was too good to not share.Kaspersky has been toying with a free version of its widely respected antivirus solution for a while now on the company's own Dev Builds server.Recently, the company released Kaspersky Free to the public. While not the first free product that Kaspersky has released, it is the first free full-blown antivirus solution the company has released.The main caveat at this time is that the product has only been released official in Russia and the Ukraine.While that is the case, downloads don't seem to be geo-restricted at this point in time. Please note though that the interface is mostly in Russian which is problematic if you don't speak the language considering that it is usually a good thing to understand what a security message means before reacting to it.Also, you may run into activation issues if you run the program in a region that is not Russia or Ukraine. If that is the case, features are limited until those issues are resolved (for instance by using a VPN).Source: http://www.ghacks.net/2016/01/14/kaspersky-free-antivirus-released/I expect big things from Kaspersky's free Antivirus to be honest. Can't wait for the English release. It's the second company now that releases a free version of their products (Sophos being the first).

Answer:"Kaspersky Free Antivirus released", via gHacks (Russian support only)

Question: Great Deal

Anyone with an older P4 or dual core PC with motherboard graphics, I found a deal on brand new Radeon HD 4550 graphics cards for $8.00 delivered. I think that's here in the U.S. unfortunately, but this is the right card for those machines. I know this isn't the right forum, but I am posting here for the benefit you guys who frequent this forum (and anyone else) with an older PC such as a few of the ones I have here. It needs a DVI->VGA or HDMI->VGA adapter to be used VGA, but can't beat the price for a new card. It also has a tower bracket, so it's not for small form factor PCs. Looks like the bracket can be changed out, though.

I have a 4350 in a dual core that I put in it when I got an r7 240 for the PC that had that card, and that made a ton of difference. That's why I decided to post this here. BTW, card only uses 20w max in case anyone is worried about power issues...

Here's the listing title:

NEW ATI Radeon HD 4550 512MB PCIe Display Port DVI Graphics Card Dell 3Y14F

Just got one of these today, and I plan to drop it in an older dual core W7 PC, to use for testing various things. Got it in a HP 6200 with an i5 and motherboard graphics for now, and it's for sure better now that I added the AMD site driver...

Hey guys,

I know dells aren't the greatest and all, but I think I found a decent deal on the site. Its a Dimensions XPS and its blue...so I figure it must be a Gen 3. The new Gen 4 is out right now as well.

Ok so basically the deal is $1240 on the dell site for a blue XPS with:

- Pentium® 4 Processor 550 with HT Technology (3.40GHz, 800 FSB)

- 1GB Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 533MHz (2x512M)

- 128MB PCI Express™ x16 (DVI/VGA/TV-out) ATI Radeon™ X300 SE ... i plan to switch it out with something better

- 250GB Serial ATA Hard Drive (7200RPM)

- Dual Drives: 16x DVD-ROM Drive + 16x DVD+/-RW w/dbl layer write capability

- Sound Blaster Audigy™2 ZS (D) Card w/Dolby 5.1, and IEEE 1394

Is this a good deal for $1240? Or do you think I can do better? I really like how convenient the XPS case is and it would also save me the cost of shipping 15+ components and the time of building my own comp.

the other thing is...i found another deal on the dell site...19inch Ultra Sharp LCD $650..I get it for $377. Their regular 19inch LCD is 450...so I'd be getting an even better LCD for less.

Answer:Your Opinion on a great deal at Dell??

FYI, I just picked up one of these HANNS-G 19" LCD Monitors for $129.95 after rebate, $16.76 shipping. It has both DVI and VGA inputs, as well as embedded speakers. First blush is I'm pretty impressed what I got for the money! There appear to be no bad pixels after running a red, green, blue screen test on the monitor. I've yet to connect the DVI, but I have no reason to think it'll look worse than the VGA connection. The two rebates for a total of $110 are good for purchases through the end of May. A three year parts/labor warranty is claimed, hopefully I won't have to test that.

So what should i do? Is there any chance some new mobo will support AGP and PCI-Express? Or am i even asking sensible question there? Confused

Answer:Great deal on AGP card but building a new system in the next year

MoBos are going to continue to support AGP for sometime, depending on what MoBo you purchase.

PCI-Express, however, is where the future of gaming is. If you want a new system that has a good solid core, go for a PCI-Express compatible MoBo. You'll be solid for sometime, or at least until you hook up your next rig.

If you're lucky, and are willing to spend abit more, you can find PCI-Express boards that also feature 1 AGP 4x/8x slot.

Windows Explorer freezes up pretty frequently, as well as things like my word processor, browser (both Chrome and Firefox), Steam, etc. However, infrequently as it is, the freezing and speed issues will stop and the laptop will fine again, I can resume activities from playing games to web browsing and it remains unaffected for a brief time.

Answer:BitDefender Antivirus Free vs Avast Antivirus Free vs Avira Antivirus Free

Resource Usage (eg: CPU, RAM): draw, with the indication of Avira, since BitDefender takes overall a little bit less of CPU time, but consumes much more RAM.
Level of Protection and Features (eg: Antivirus , Firewall, Behavior Blocker): Avira has more features, configuration options and is generally more effective when it comes to the malware detection (Proactive and Reactive).
Overall Winner: Avira.
Edit: I've just noticed, that you've added Avast - as the third contestant - to BitDefender and Avira. Still Avira is the winner here. Avast is not too hungry for PC resources and perhaps has more features, but its engine is not so good, and its detection ratio usually lags behind both: BitDefender and Avira.

I have Microsoft Security Essentials. I have gotten enough malware that I feel it could use some supplementation. Immunet's website is explicit on being compatible with MSE, AVG, AVAST, Avira, Norton, Mcafee, and others. http://support.immunet.com/tiki-rea...Id=4#Officially_Supported_Anti_Virus_Packages

I didn't see anything about compatibility on the ClamWin website, but it seems like it would have to be in order for Immunet to be compatible.

There is a ClamWin Free Antivirus website which makes no mention of Immunet. The ClamAV website on the other hand directs windows users to Immunet rather than to ClamWin Free Antivirus.

I like the options for protecting e-mail. I just realized Microsoft Security Essentials does not protect Microsoft Outlook Express. How brilliant!

Any comments on the pros and cons of those programs are extremely welcome.
 

Answer:What's better option : Immunet FREE Antivirus or ClamWin Free Antivirus itself?

ClamAV is a horrible solution for most people, unless they have added a realtime scanner since I last checked it out.

Hi,where is the lowest price deal on NOD 32 ANTIVIRUS? We have been using AVAST FREE for the past year with no problems until we caught a trojan yesterday that it could`nt clean.We don`t keep programs that can`t clean trojans.
We don`t like paying for virus protection but apparently NOD 32 AV is a worthy program that is more thorough than the free AV`s.
Thanks for any information.

Hi all. I am looking for antivirus software. I would really like a all-in-one program. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
 

Answer:Looking for a great antivirus program

Hello,

All in one program doesn't exist, likewise there is no 100% protection. Best thing to do is to combine multiple programs.

As antivirus protection my personal recommendation is ESET. You can choose ESET Smart Security as total protection (firewall + banking protection) or ESET NOD32 antivirus that is also very good protection but without some additional components like firewall/parental control/banking protecton. It also offers a great protection. Choice is up to you.

ESET Smart Security

If you are a bit paranoid and want a control of everything executable that can be downloaded to your computer, then I recommend Zemana AntiMalware with Pandora technology activated to work with ESET.

Zemana AntiMalware Premium - Block online threats before the infections take place.

In addition to this I would add MalwareBytes Anti-Exploit although I think ESET has this integrated, but two tools are better then one.

Anti-Exploit Premium - Premium Zero-Day Exploit Protection

Windows 10 is famously ‘free’, but Microsoft has been worryingly silent about just how free it really is. Now, only three weeks before release, leaks suggest ‘free’ Windows 10 might not be a good deal at all…
The news comes from ComputerWorld which attained Microsoft internal slides that strongly suggest many Windows 10 owners will have to start paying to receive updates within two years. The key lines ComputerWorld discovered are:
“Revenue allocated is deferred and recognized on a straight-line basis over the estimated period the software upgrades are expected to be provided by estimated device life…. [The estimated device life] can range from two to four years.”
‘Device life’ is the key phrase here. Microsoft has already stated revenue earned from Windows 10 must be deferred because of the free upgrade model (cash isn’t taken upfront), but it repeatedly stressed Windows 10 owners can expect to get free updates for the “supported lifetime of the device”.
The problem is Microsoft hadn’t defined how long the ‘supported lifetime of the device’ will be and now we see it: “two to four years”.

I guess will see how it all shakes out over time. Microsoft will need to make money somehow with Windows 10.

Answer:'Free' Windows 10 Now Looks A Terrible Deal

Windows 10 is only free for a year so at the worst, they will stop making money for a year on it and then start making money again. It's after, when Windows 10 will have the biggest part of the market share that they should do something to make money.

I was going through one of my external hard drives and cleaning out some old downloads and just making space, when I came across this little CD burning app: Small CD Writer (aka SCDWriter). It's a stand alone program meaning that it doesn't require installation, it supports drag-n-drop, it will create and burn ISO images, and I think it will burn DVDs too (I'm not sure though, I haven't tried it with DVDs yet). I've been using this for the past 2 days to make quick data back ups. I just minimize it to the task bar and browse through my files and folders; when I find stuff that needs burning, I maximize SCD, drag the stuff and drop it, click 'Record' and whether this is a new or continued session, and that's it!!! So easy and fast for data back up that it's not even funny! This isn't the newest version of SCDWriter available; newer releases are out there but appear to be in Russian only. I have no idea where I downloaded this English version... if I knew, I would have just posted a link instead of uploading the actual file. Anyway- it's attached as a zip file below. Feel free to leave comments or whatever.
ENJOY!!!!

Hey im pretty new here.. as you all can see

Before I start, wish to say thx to the folks who run this site and keeping it free of course =). I've been using Norton Systemworks 2002 and regularly updating it. But a while back, I've started using System Mechanic 5 Pro and was impressed as it has increased my comp's performance tremendously. System Mechanic do offer an antivirus program but since I've Norton, i thought of not using it.

A week ago, I decided to try the antivirus program in System Mechanic after a friend suggested it was well worth it. It was great and should have made the change a long time ago. But this is where the problem starts... after installing Kaspersky Antivirus (the Antivirus program offered by System Mechanic Pro), I decided to delete Norton Systemworks 2002 completely and rely on System Mechanic, after making the switch and did a full scan on my comp using the new antivirus program, it found 5 viruses in my comp, pretty minor but it gave me a shocked as to why Norton Antivirus couldnt detect it .... hmm.

So then with those viruses removed, and a few registry fixes and cleaning system junk, I've started getting this wierd problem. When i run a few programs like Windows Media Player 10, Gunbound (game) or even surfing websites like hotmail.com and windowsupdate.com ... i get this error box:

Microsoft currently has it's best designer working on Windows 7 addons :-

Leaner Windows 7 Will Let You Add Features ? la Carte

It may be hard to believe that Microsoft is prepping a version of Windows without e-mail, calendar, and instant messaging apps. After all, some of those features have been bundled with Windows almost from the start; with Vista, the list got longer, including additions such as Windows Photo Gallery and Vista Parental Controls. But Microsoft officials say the plan for Windows 7 is to deliver a lean operating system that lets you add the features you like, choosing ? la carte from a suite of Windows Live Essentials programs you download.

Some applets are already available in beta form at download.live.com; more are expected to debut in mid-November. All have (or will have) hooks to free services such as online file storage, photo sharing, and collaboration tools.

Windows Live general manager Brian Hall says that stripping accessory programs from Windows will allow Microsoft to focus on the development of the operating system and streamline its support (service packs should be smaller-and possibly fewer-for a smaller OS). Hall adds that a "cleaner" operating system eliminates potential confusion for customers faced with two different programs that are similar in function-one already in Windows and the other from Windows Live.

When Windows 7 is available, Hall says, Microsoft will work with PC makers to place a desktop shortcut that will ... Read more

Thanks a ton! No, you cannot remove Office and Install it on another device. It is bundled with the device, not a stand alone license. With respect to the screen not being that bad, I would certainly disagree but to each their own. What I would suggest though, is to consider whether you can really do much in one of the Office Home and Student applications on a tiny, dim, low resolution screen.

Hey,

I use iMovie a lot and the video camera I film with isn't compatible with iMovie.

Right now the converter I use is Wondershare converter, but I don't recommend it. I only downloaded it (free) because I was in a situation where I needed it very soon, but it has a watermark at the top that I always have to crop out. Also it got bad reviews for making you register and then not giving you a code or something. If you ever download it, NEVER register. The video quality is also not the best but it works.

Any other, better, free video converters that work on mac?

Hi. Since yesterday, My laptop suddenly started lagging a lot. I opened Task Manager and saw that the Disk Usage was at 100%! The only things causing it to rise are the essential Windows Programs. This causes so much lag though, that if I try to run more than 1 application at a time, nothing starts responding and it forces Me to Force Shutdown manually by holding the power button. I tried a new Browser (went from Firefox to Chrome) and still the same problem. I decided I want to upgrade to Windows 10, since I'm qualified to have it free, but whenever I try to install it, the "Checking for Updates" loading bar never finishes and if I try to close it or anything else, it'll freeze up all over again. Please help!

What should I do? I had to go into Safe Mode to be able to make an account here and type this up. I've already uninstalled some stuff, even though I barely have anything occupying a lot of space to begin with. I certainly didn't download anything malicious, as the day before it started lagging, it worked absolutely fine and haven't downloaded anything from then on.

Thank You!

Answer:Disk Usage 100% despite great free space.

Diagnostics Test

 System File Check

Please try following:
Open an admin command promptCopy/paste "sfc/scannow" (without quotes) and press enterWhen it finished reboot your systemOpen again an admin command promptEnter sfc/scannow again
If sfc/scannow does NOT say "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violation" after the second SFC, please upload the cbs.log file located at {windows partition}\Windows\Logs\CBS\, if the file is too large try a 3rd party uploader like dropbox, onedrive, google drive, mediafire etc.
System File Check(SFC a.k.a. Windows Resource Protection) needs to have your system rebooted in order for sfc to try to fix the problems that it finds.

Answer:need great free imaging/font program

http://www.dafont.com/ is a great site for free fonts... I've used fonts from them on several occasions. However, not all of the fonts are free so you have to be aware of what you're downloading. As to a graphics/image type of app, there's tons listed in the Major Geeks graphics section and many are free. You can find fractal makers and photo manipulators to paint-with-pastels-and-real-brushes programs and everything in between. Since I don't know exactly what you're trying to do, I can't really provide any exact names of programs, but I'm sure you'll find something in the graphics section to suit your needs.

Hi there
I use the Squeezebox system from Logitech for streaming music from my computer HDD's (network HDD's)and also Internet Radio

Now there's an app available FREE which enables you to do exactly the same from your computer -- so if you are on the road etc you can use the same Internet Radio / Music folders for playing on your PC without the server connecting to the remote devices

The interface looks EXACTLY like the Hardware controller when using the server at Home to remote devices -- so you can play all your favourites etc without having to go through hoops and loops to find everything again.
You need to install the Logitech media server (also free--I use their Internet Radio and a couple of squeezebox receivers - excellent system)

The software for running on a Stand alone PC is SOFTSQUEEZE and can be downloaded here
Squeezebox Software Beta Downloads - Version 7.7

Incidentally you can also sync this app with an Android phone so you can either have the music playing via your phone (Wifi needed) or you can use the Phone as a remote controller -- which is what I'm doing as I'm in a Hotel Bed listening to the radio via the computer -- and I can control the whole thing while in Bed (Lazy Bu---r) !!.

This is what it looks like after you've started the server

Cheers
jimbo

Panda USB and AutoRun VaccineBy Pedro Bustamante The Microsoft Windows Operating Systems use the AUTORUN.INF file from removable drives in order to know which actions to perform when a new external storage device, such as a USB drive or CD/DVD, is inserted into the PC. The AUTORUN.INF file is a configuration file that is normally located in the root directory of removable media and contains, among other things, a reference to the icon that will be shown associated to the removable drive or volume, a description of its content and also the possibility to define a program which should be executed automatically when the unit is mounted. The problem is that this feature, widely critizised by the security community, is used by malware in order to spread by infecting as soon as a new drive is inserted in a computer. The malware achieves this by copying a malicious executable in the drive and modifying the AUTORUN.INF file so that Windows opens the malicious file silently as soon as the drive is mounted. The most recent examples of this are the W32/Sality, W32/Virutas and also the W32/Conficker worm which, in addition to spreading via a vulnerability and network shares, also spreads via USB drives.Due to the large amount of malware-related problems associated with Microsoft AutoRun we have created a free utility for our user community called Panda USB Vaccine.Computer VaccinationThe free Panda USB Vaccine allows users to vaccinate their PCs in order to disable AutoRun completely so ...

After a long search and many downloads and trials, I have found an editing software that is easy, multifunctional, free, and so far with no hangs or bugs. I tried adobe product, gimp, ulead, canon, kodak, arcsoft, and som others. This one worked the best with the criteria of it being free and easy to use. Has almost all the features of expensive software, but is easier to use. Give it a try. Not a free trial, but free full version. www.photofiltre.com

Hey there,

Advice on great free anti virus malware is kindly required.

As the market is constantly changing I thought I would ask for some advice on what is the best at the moment.

Of course this all depends on the environment one is working in.

I require the anti malware to be first of all free, its for a business educational use - I appreciate that limits the options somewhat.:cry

Have as small "footprint / overhead" as it were on system resources.

Is effective and doesnt have issues with Win defender or spybot, can be locked down from user interferance, also auto update malware signatures..

I had been using Comodo which was quite good, with the exception of a saility infection(..grrr) but have had many update issues and this leaves the units prone to infection:cry...which is of course totaly un"app"cetable...

The platform

Windows XP PRO SP/2 + SP/3
MS Office PRO suite
I.E 6 & 7 - upgrading units as time allows.
HP 2.4GHZ CPU
512MB RAM

If the settings can be password protected would also be helpful save having to "play" with gp.edits or permissions but not critical etc.. again must be free for business use though..gosh that makes it hard huh:confusedrolleyes


Thanks in advance for helpful advice. :wave
