Quote from: Xero Shifter on February 12, 2009, 11:30:04 pm@bliz: Spybot will clean your registry, and that defragger (if you buy the full version) will defrag it. As far as cleaning your HDD i will post something as soon as I find one i like. Spybot may or may not fix linking errors (i forget.) As far as AVG goes, your right, it is only the best FREE virus scan software. There are much better ones that you can pay for, but they can empty your wallet, and slow down your computer. The new norton is way better than the old, but still has some issues. If your gonna pay for one I would suggest Norton, not Mcaffee, Mcaffee is a pain in the ass every minute of every day. As far as NOD goes, never actually used it, first I have heard of it.@reno: Avg sometimes doesn't do the best job of actually removing the viruses and has to put a lot of them in it's vault so that they cant run amuck on your system and spread. So instead of actually getting rid of them, you just freeze them permanently. Mind you it doesn't do this with all, just the ones it has trouble removing. Glad you like spybot, be sure to manually update, and set your schedualers, and enable advanced user mode. Also avg takes forever to scan and your computer slows considerably while it is doing so, so i really recomend you have it do it at like 3am.@nam: I do too ^_^. Once a week. Dont do it more than that, because defragging can actually ware out your hardrive, all hardrives actually have a limit of how many times you can read and write to and from them, before they break, (mind you its like a billion or more.)

Quote from: Blizzard on February 13, 2009, 04:43:51 amI've been using NOD 32 for years and I'm very satisfied. I tried other antiviruses, but they all were more or less a disappointment. Among others there were Norton, Kaspersky, Bit Defender, Sophos and NOD 32 v3. I didn't like NOD 32 v3. One of the things that were most annoying was that you can't turn it off. :/
Quote@Reno - Pretty much any anti virus will slow you down when its running a scan. What you have to watch for is when it's slowing you down when your not scanning. If that is the case, the protection can be worse than actually having some of the spyware lol.
Quote from: Blizzard on June 29, 2009, 12:55:22 pmDid you know that Avast, AVG and McAfee all think that cracks are viruses? Hahaha, silly dumb anti-viruses.Why do you think all of them are free? Because they suck. Anti-Viruses are one of the rare things where the free stuff sucks ass. Generally every free piece of security software sucks ass.
