McAfee 2017 - I KNOW But This is Different.

Question: McAfee 2017 - I KNOW But This is Different.

I haven't used Mcafee in years, but thought I'd try out their new 2017 version for fun. It's fast, and much different than previous editions.

We should have some of you guys who are skilled at testing, give it a shake.

Preferred Solution: McAfee 2017 - I KNOW But This is Different.

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.)

Answer: McAfee 2017 - I KNOW But This is Different.

Answer:McAfee AntiVirus plus 2017

And that's why performance tests shouldn't be taken very seriously.
Mcafee had top rated performance in Av-comparatives? Because I believe they did pretty bad in Av-test.

I have read several recent articles that McAfee has revamped its IS with a new GUI employing new detection technology.

However, whenever I attempt to install it on one of my PC's, being that I have a 4 year license, the old version with the green border still appears.

For months, McAfee keeps saying they are gradually rolling it out. So far months have past, and nothing has changed.

Is it because the new version is too buggy?

I do not understand the delay. Does anyone know what is going on?
Is there a workaround to force the installation of the new gui?

Hi everyone, i have quite a few questions so i'll post separate threads rather than pollute one thread. I'm wanting to get something a lot better than windows defender. Comcast is my ISP so i can get NIS for free. As most of you are aware of Norton hasn't been doing a great job these days. There has been multiple vulnerabilities in its products that actually decreases the security of windows. Still NIS still does a pretty good job of scoring pretty well in the various test in terms of protection. I was thinking on going with either bitdefender or KIS but of course i would have to pay for those. If you were me would opt for NIS because its still pretty dang good and worlds better than bit defender or would you opt for one of the better products like KIS or bitdefender?

Good evening everyone. Thanks for your access to this thread. I hope you to read and answer for this question.

I want to ask everyone that which software should I use for keeping security of my PC.

Now I am using Bitdefender Total Security 2017 as main anti-malware soft on my main desktop PC.
And also I was using F-secure SAFE as anti-malware soft on my PC until last week.

Yesterday, I heard that new Avast Antivirus 2017 was released, and new Avast Free is including behaviour scanning system.

I am having trouble deciding which software should I use as anti-malware soft.
Please tell me about your recommend.

I think that...

?Protection features
Better : Bitdefender 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017

?Performance and speed
Lighter : Avast Free 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Bitdefender 2017

?the risk of false positive trouble
Bigger risk : F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017 > Bitdefender 2017

?SSL (HTTPS) Scanning is enable without fake SSL certificate to browser
Unnecessary fake certificate : Avast Free, F-secure
Need fake certificate : Bitdefender Total

F-secure SAFE is the very nice solution as protection from malwares and keeping speedy PC. But it is having big risk of false positive ratings; especially the website blocking is not good with many many false positive ratings. And, sometimes slow down my PC.

Bitdefender Total Security 2017 is the best solution as protection from malwares. This software is providing users very nice anti-malware solu... Read more

Answer:Avast Free 2017 vs F-secure SAFE vs Bitdefender Total Security 2017

Quick question, why Bitdefender Total Protection? Do you need ALL those additional features, or looking for an Antivirus only, because there are Bitdefender Antivirus Plus and Free versions.

What about other protection software like Emsisoft Anti-Malware/Internet Security or ESET Nod32 Antivirus/Internet Security?

Hello, Guys!
I'm new on this forum but I Really Really like this good Forum
So I had Emsisoft for couple of months now
But Recently I've switched over to Avast Premier Beacuse I've never used Avast before So I wanted to try It out
But now I'm without any AV As I do not know what to Install Avast or Emsisoft!
I have licences for both So thats not the problem
Thanks In Advance And btw This forum really nice.
 

Answer:Avast Premier 2017 Vs Emsisoft Internet Security 2017

Both have excellent protection functions, but certainly they are two different security solutions.
I think the choice of one or the other one is really subjective, I've used Emsisoft for many years and it is my first choice

A couple of years ago I moved myself and some of the fam from Apple Everything to Windows 10. Yesterday however, I bought an new 2017 iPad. I really love the Surface devices, so why?
LEAVING THE PLATFORM BECAUSE OF WINDOWS MOBILE
First, because Microsoft are no longer supporting the phones that are in our house, we are being forced from that platform. So rather than living and breathing completely and happily inside the Microsoft ecosystem, I am now forced to diversify and go elsewhere. This really is a big deal, and changes my thinking from the unthinkable (leaving the MS ecosystem) to the possible (shifting back towards Apple). That being the case, why should I then buy a Microsoft Surface tablet (I was planning to buying a new Surface Pro M3) when I an now FORCED to be open to Apple and Android?
EASE OF MOVING PLATFORMS
Second, Microsoft have made my leap back to Apple so easy, because they have done what Apple and Google have refused to do, which is to make their software available on the others' platforms. Thus the transition to iPad is easy. For example, Word and PowerPoint are effectively free (via my 365 account that I will not be renewing at full cost next time; I will use the academic version which costs me almost nothing). Outlook on iPad is a great app (better than on PC platform). Lots of other apps that Microsoft that I use are also really nice on iPad (e.g. Wunderlist) and made the transition really simple and clean.
FACEBOOK
Third, the Facebook app on iPad is ... Read more

Answer:I did the unthinkable and chose a 2017 iPad over a 2017 Surface Pro M3

Microsoft are no longer supporting the phones that are in our house, we are being forced from that platform
Can't make sense of that. Presumably you have really old windows phones that no longer get updates?
And what does that have to do with what tablet you use? Windows has timeline, cloud clipboard and a whole host of platform agnostic features coming this fall, so Windows will play nice with android or ios (better than those OSes play with any other).
You don't even need your tablet, desktop and phone to be the same platform. You just need the same services, which for MSFT, exist on every platform.

Hello,
On my Windows 10 pro PC, I'm running (BDTS 2017 + Voodoo Shield Pro + Malwarebytes 3), and this combo is very smooth for me, but when I saw the results of MT tests here : AV Test - MalwareTips - Bitdefender Report - March 2017 and here : AV Test - MalwareTips - Kaspersky Report - March 2017, I think that these tests demonstrated that Kaspersky did a better job then Bitdefender
So my question is to know if it is a good idea to replace BD by KIS on my config ?
Thanks
NB: I have paid keys for both

Good evening everyone! Thank you for your access to here and reading my post.
Tonight, I want to ask you that how much the Avast Free Antivirus reaches some solid anti-malware software, which are the paid version.

Now I am using F-secure SAFE as Trial license on desktop PC, which is one of the mine.
It seems to nice for protect PC and F-secure SAFE is light despite it is one of the very strong scanning system as consumers.

But now, I am worrying about false blocking by browsing protection of F-secure SAFE.
In usually, f-secure is not making something to bad situation for me, I am feeling it.
But the Browsing protection feature of F-secure SAFE blocks websites too many times.
The most of sites,which were blocked by F-secure are obviously safe. Of cause, they are judged safe sites by other major antimalware soft (e.g. Avast, Bitdefender Total Security).

So I want to compare them; Avast Free Antivirus 2017 and F-secure SAFE 2017(or Internet Security 2017).
I want to ask you that which is the more strong software under the below situation...

1.
OS is Windows10 Home and updated with latest security patch.
2.
Main browser is the latest of Mozilla Firefox with ublock origin.
3.
If I use Avast Free 2017, I will configure some setting (e.g. File Shield, Mail Shield, Web Shield, and Behavior Shield) to aggressive security level. For example, I will configure by referring to this page avast! Optimal Protection settings by RejZoR​

On the 29th of september whilst on a website java 6 popped up as if to install then disappeared. my mcafee notified me it had removed a trojan ,after that it kept popping up to tell me it had removed a trojan and i continued viewing the site, i pressed stop notifying me presuming it would continue to remove trojans. later i tried to start a game i have, called minecraft, an error popped up saying couldnt start java virtual machine(maybe this isnt that relevant and could be an entirely different problem but it happened after the trojan incident and was working fine before).
i decided to restart hoping all would be well but when i shutdown windows notified me i had updates to install, i said ok. instead of saying "windows is installing update 1 of 5" etc, it just said windows is shutting down and froze. i forced a shutdown by holding the power button and when i restarted my start bar and icons where missing.

i started again in safe mode and tried restoring my pc to earlier that day and restarted again. the icons where not there nor the startbar and task manager was "disabled by my administrator" i went back to safe mode and ran superantispyware which found some horrible things like "disabletaskmanger" some trackin...

I just had some terrific help from TSG and cleaned up my HiJackThis log, and ugh, I just found another problem with my PC.

When I try to go to www.mcafee.com or http://us.mcafee.com/root/redirects/support.asp?affid=332-05 (this is the Mcafee 'Support' button link), I receive the IE error message that the page cannot be found.

Looking into this further, when I start up the PC, the McAfee logo color is red, the McAfee security splash appears listing the active services, and then a moment later, the McAfee start up logo color changes to black, and is disabled.

I've run McAfee Update, but I don't think it's been updating successfully because the security index indicates that its detecting an older version.

I searched the TSG forums and wasn't able to find a solution...

Some back story which may be pertinent - I had NAV installed and it got corrupted, symptoms included disabled virus scan at start up. The PC was not able to connect to the internet at all. I took the laptop to a tech shop last week, and they were not able to reinstall NAV successfully. They installed McAfee instead.

I'm running on Windows 2000 SP4, IE v6, McAfee VirusScan 2004 v8. I'm also running ZoneAlarm with the privacy option disabled, and have run the comprehensive Ad-Aware scan.

Any help would be most appreciated!
Jackie

Question:  What antivirus software is out there that is compatable with Vista?I just spent the last 6 hours trying to fix my husbands computer.  Here are the details.Vista computer, running internet explorer, outlook express mail and up to an hour ago McAfee antivirus.I kept going in circles trying to upgrade microsoft.  McAfee wouldn't update.  Seems there was missing components after a microsoft upgrade.  Not sure if that is what caused it but my husband said the problem started with the upgrade back on the 13th of November.  Numerous attempts to fix McAfee.  Used their autofix.  Messed up Vista.  Tried their un-install.  Still left parts of McAfee.  Did an un-install using Remove programs and finally got rid of it all.Totally updated Vista now but have no antivirus software.  The computer seems to be working fine.  Mail and internet works.  Clock in gadgets works.  Fingers crossed.What antivirus software is out there that works with Vista?  I don't mind paying for something if I don't have to go through what I just did.  (Please list freebies too as I don't mind upgrading after trying something out).Thank you

Answer:Vista Vs McAfee - McAfee lost! What antivirus software can I use?

I use F-Secure (ranked in top 4) and I believe they have it for Vista.  Go to www.F-secure.com  They are running a special right now.

I'm not sure what's going on - I'm unable to update my current McAfee SecurityCenter package and believe that something is blocking me from updating it and accessing the website.

I've downloaded HijackThis and have run a log. I'd appreciate any help/direction on solving the problem...

Just threw this article together, I want all the brain's in this forum to chip in and if there is anything missing from this article (at all!) let me know ASAP, in this thread.

Previously we wrote a long post about Best Laptops for Hackers, which included a run-down on the best laptops for programming and penetration testing (pen-testing). This article turned out to be very popular even though it wasn't exactly intended to be that, now we are proud to finally publish the long-requested article of 'Best Laptops for Video Game System Emulation'.

The idea of this post is to give an accurate summary of which laptops are suited for, or adept at emulating various consoles and their games, and which ones also can easily perform these duties, at the lowest possible cost.

Now obviously, the better hardware you have the better your system will be at emulating other hardware/software. That doesn't necessarily mean a more expensive laptop. Where the demands of hacking and pen-testing demand vital and significant internal storage, the prerequisites for game emulation are generally just a good graphics processor, and good RAM/CPU.

Your laptop should also be in good working order and not muddled with high-risk pirated downloads and large bits of video. To emulate efficiently, you should also have as little processes and programs running in order for the emulator to run smoothly.

These are all common sense tips but...

The Mcafee icon is no longer in the lower right part of the screen. The update icon (the rotating arrow) appears, but it stops and I am told I need to reinstall the program. However, I cannot get to the Mcafee site (I can get to other sites). Other icons have also disappeared, including the one for Zone Alarm (I need to start that up each time). I had this problem last week and ran Malwarebtyes' Anti-Malware; it found problems, removed them, and everything was fine. Now the problem is back, and MBAM finds no problem. I also find that using the internet is now very slow.

I have put the latest Hijack This log below. Below that, I put the MBAM log from last week (when it found problems).

I am wondering, did this get here my a java update/installation?  How can I make sure that after running ccleaner, that everything mcafee is removed?  I only ran the cleaner, so these registry values won't get removed.

Hi, I just bought an XPS 8910 with 256 GB M2.SSD + 2GB HDD with 16GB DDR4 RAM.(Win10Pro) I installed whole necessary Sotwares, updates, etc.When I finish, I pluged in USB 3.0 Extern HDD (1TB)Then rebooted and started with Acronis TI 2017 CD.Till here everything works fine.TI does not recognised C:\ [M2.SSD] as normal but Extern HDD C:\ itself.So, I cant make any image copy with Acronis Live CDANY IDEA

Answer:M2.SSD Does not appear on Acronis TI 2017

The Chipset 8910 M2 drivers are not native to windows. You need to talk with Acronis about mass storage drivers.  There is support from Dell for Windows PE and DISM but it is not free.
Imaging using anything other than windows PE 10 and Microsoft Tools
is not supported by Dell or Microsoft. When you deploy a duplicated or imaged Windows installation, it is required that the System Preparation (Sysprep) tool is used before the capture of the image.
Dependencies
   You must run Windows Setup before you use Sysprep.
   You need a tool to capture an image of the installation, such as Microsoft DISM

The new Box V2 includes all of these features, plus an enhanced assessment tool that scans for weak or default passwords and other vulnerabilities hackers could exploit.

New Features
Leverages heuristic data gathered by Bitdefender about what safe and normal network traffic looks like, should it detect anything untoward?exploits, brute-force attacks, port scanning?the Box blocks access.

Monitor where you enter personal information?such as address, Social Security number, etc.?and prevent you from accidentally submitting that data on fraudulent or insecure websites.

Improved Hardware
Dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processor
1GB of DDR3 memory
4GB of eMMC/NAND storage
Supports Dual Concurrent 2.4GHz and 5GHz
802.11n MIMO 2x2 + 802.11ac MIMO 33 AC1300
Two 10/100/1000 BaseT Ethernet ports

The beefier hardware is designed to run more activities locally, from the Box V.2 itself.

Price and Licensing
The Box Version 2 is expected to retail in the sub-$200 range, and will go on sale later this year with pre-orders beginning in summer 2017. Bitdefender says it will likely keep both devices on the market to provide different price points. Either device comes with a free year of security coverage from Bitdefender, which will cost consumers $99 a year afterwards.

Question: End of Vista 2017

I understand that Vista finishes in 2017. Can you expand on this for me?

I have Home Premium 32 bit at present and Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor seems to recognise only minor adjustments to be made. Would you suggest I upgrade now or wait until Vista ends?

Answer:End of Vista 2017

It will be just like XP. What it basically means is that there will be no updates from Microsoft for it. Vista will still work just like xp does still work.

If your happy with Vista then you can continue to use it for the rest of your life if you want.

What I recommend though is that do not use internet explorer use another browser. if you use it after the finish date as it will be vunerable and make sure you have a firewall and AV software protecting your system, but you should have that now anyway.

Not sure if this is the result of the ?Creator Update or coincidental hardware fail.
Yesterday my HP6735S laptop running W10 Home since last year was offered an update from v1607 (I think) to the latest. I allowed this to go ahead and waited .. and waited for about 4.5 hours all told.
Eventually it finished and after logging in again it appeared to be working.
After being left for a while it turned itself off - as normal.
I then tried to turn it on with the following result:-
Blue power light ON
WiFi LED Orange (Off)
HDD activity LED flashing Orange (Normally Blue)
DVD drive seeming to try accessing (Empty at the time)
Display Blank
Caps Lock LED flashing occasionally
Pressing and holding the power button turns Off as normal.
Tried removing battery and starting with adapter - same.
Tried putting in W10 *.iso DVD - same.
I can read the HDD in a caddy on another PC and it seems to be OK
(Except the small (100M) system partition reports empty)
I have 3 normal partitions:
Windows 7 (~100G)
Windows 10 (~100G)
Data (~500G)
I usually had to select W7 or W10 at start up.
Unfortunately I cannot run your SysInfo utility for obvious reasons.
Procesor is dual core AMD Turion X2 64bit with 4G RAM (2 x 2G)
Laptop came with (250G HDD)/Vista originally which I replaced with XP.
The HDD was later replaced with 1T HGST and installed W7.

Hi all,

About a week after my last visit I noticed a browser hijack. I opened a page and in just under a second the browser loaded a page claiming to be a Firefox update page, and it popped up a download window asking me to download a javascript file. It's been busy at work so I haven't had time to deal with this, but today it happened again and I was in the middle of typing in another application when this download popup took over and I'd hit the spacebar before I knew what was going on. So now I probably have something malicious and definitely need to make time to deal with this crap again.

"When a Chrome extension is removed from the store, the developer of that extension can then submit a new version that doesn't violate the Chrome web store terms. If that new version is ready, they can submit it on his store dashboard page. However, because they violate the Chrome web store program. This extension will also get a manual review by a Google employee, to check if they meet Chrome web store guideline (that takes 48 hours). If OK, then you see the Chrome extension back in the store.

Question: 2017 4K V nitro?

Sorry if this is the wrong thread, couldnt find anything in regards to the v nitro series.  Ive been looking at a new laptop to replace my V3-771g from 5 years ago and im looking at the V nitro series. The 2017 models are finally for sale but none have a 4K screen. I was wondering if this feature will be released on later models or not at all. Thanks

Answer:2017 4K V nitro?

Hi,  It is likely that 4K models will be released, however, acer hasn't confirmed this and it is only public speculation. The top tier models seem to have a GTX 1060, which isn't good enough for 4k gaming. I'd still recommend the 1080p version

I'm sure there are similar older threads, but things change quickly for VPN services and extensions.

I have used ZenMate, DotVPN and GOM VPN extensions in the past. But it's been over a year, and they seem to have changed. DotVPN didn't require sign-up when I used it for example, now it does.

Which VPN extension (for Chrome) do you use/recommend in 2017
 

Answer:Which VPN extension do you use in 2017?

None of those, I use Private Internet Access. However, it is paid
It has an extension for chrome but I mostly use the windows app.

My favourite free alternative in Chrome used to be ZenMate. I have some friends who use Hola free vpn but I've never tried it so I'm not sure it's any good. Well, it depends on what you want it for.

So it's already July and why not take the time and talk about what password manager do we use as of 2017.

Are you using the native password manager of your browser ? And if you're using a third party one, is it open source such as KeePass or proprietary, stored locally or cloud based, used on your PC only or on all your devices ? And if happen to don't use any password manager at all, what's your trick to ensure your online safety ?

This is not a comparison or about what's THE best password manager, but about what's your favorite one and why you use it. And of course all related talks such as 2 step authentification, password strength, etc...

Hi All, I would like to check the stability of the X1 Carbon 2017, if it's still as problematic as what I've read from the various threads: trackpad issues, thunderbolt ports issues, etc.  I've just returned a Yoga 370, supposed to be Mil specs but delivered faulty right out of box. As a form of resolution and customer retention, Lenovo has recommended and offered to swap to a X1 Carbon or T470 as what they claimed to be stable laptops.  I would like to to seek your opinions on this before deciding whether to go ahead with another Lenovo. I'm really keen to move on to other companies since the customer service rendered, active following up and updates has not really been that satisfactory.  I would like to hear you guys out first before deciding.  Thanks in advance

Microsoft states after you install the patch needed for CVE-2017-8563 on domain controllers that you need to also create a registry key (LdapEnforceChannelBinding) on your DCs. My question is, do clients need to install the related KB for this CVE as well
in order for things not to break? Or do clients only need the KB installed if you set the DWORD to value 2 for enabled,always? "Before you enable this setting on a Domain Controller, clients must install the security update that is described

Even Macs Need Antivirus Protection
Did you ever think about the people who write viruses, spyware, ransomware, and other malicious software? Why do they do it? The answer is simple?for money. Trojans steal personal data to sell. Bot herders rent out their victims to spammers. Ransomware goes for the jugular; give us your money or your files are toast. More computers use Windows than macOS, but there's no reason for these malware entrepreneurs to ignore the macOS market. There are even some attack types?phishing in particular?that are completely OS-independent. Like it or not, in this dangerous world you need antivirus protection on your Macs, not just on your Windows boxes.

Addressed issue where the Site to Zone Assignment List group policy (GPO) was not set on machines when it was enabled.
Addressed issue where the AppLocker rules wizard crashes when selecting accounts.
Addressed issue where the primary computer relationship is not determined when you have a disjoint NetBIOS domain name for your DNS Name. This prevents folder redirection and roaming profiles from successfully blocking your profile or redirects folders to a non-primary computer.

Hi there

Probably not - might be one for 2020 or whatever -- I get the impression that Ms wants to expand its cloud services and put as many people on to Office 365 with the subscription model.

Office 2016 though is still the current Non subscription model and I'm sure that will not need updating for quite a few years -- after all how many people in offices write documentation in totally NEW formats.

Office 2010 still works fine as does Office 2007 so I wouldn't be too worried about needing the latest and greatest office version.

The only major change might be in things like "Groupware" - which is irrelevant for a single user on a standard PC.

I've ZERO intentions of using Cloud services or buying into monthly / yearly subscriptions -- however like all these things YMMV though.

Cheers

Well it's that time of year where we have some interesting new Hardware choices

So Kaby-Lake has been released but honestly no need for it because Skylake performs pretty much the same or better at the same speed given Kaby-Lake can OC higher

Also we have The New Z270 Platform

Bunch of Intel refresh ......

Now we are on to AMD they have Ryzen that can compete with a 6900k CPU @3.6 Ghz with a Turbo that goes to 4.0 with more room to push

Also Vega GPU's

Before you install the update released today (9 May) be careful and take precautions.

It installed to my PC when I started it earlier, though I didn't know it. The PC had restarted and was stuck at the blue window start up screen, the little dots just happily spinning around. It sounds like Windows has started but the start up screen won't go away.

I got on my laptop to start researching the problem, not knowing about the update/restart. I found a couple things online I tried and even posted a question in the general forum. As I tried accessing my PC with a Win10 repair disk, my laptop updated and requested to restart. I wasn't using it right then and told it okay. Lo and behold, after it restarted, the laptop did the same thing as the PC, the start up screen that won't go away.

Hardware wise, there is no cross over between. The PC is a 4 year old BYOPC with an i7 processor and NVidia graphics. The laptop is a 10 year old HP Pavilion with a Core 2 Quad processor and AMD graphics.

I have had to resort to using my wheezy HP Slate10 HD tablet to post this warning.
