Re: Avg was Re: [nvda] malware bites question
To be honest thats why I like.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
1. a pc with a data drive as well as a system drive.
I have had security programs muck me about.
But thats not a problem, all my data is double backed up on spining drives, the important stuff is on solid state drives and the cloud.
If something screws up, just reformat and don't do it again.
A reformat always fixes it.
I know it will take me about 2 days to install and several days to reconfigure things.
Sadly I do not have a 2 drive system, the next powerbox I get will have one even though the weight will be more.
My dad and brother both have this system.
That technically means that if I have a place to store configs of things, and my data, if it screws up, in theory I can cut the restore time in half.
It may take you days to resolve the issue.
It may take a week or 2 to fully restore but at least you know where you go.
I use msse, and malwarebytes if something stupid goes up at me.
I do have ublock and noscript 5x on my side, still sore about what mozilla did to firefox and web extentions, it appears they don't care about accessibility anymore.
Its not spread to thunderbird yet and I have waterfox, that at least runs.
And thats all I care about.
I know thats selfish but I have been there and done that.
Avg was good once.
But then norton was darn good bar a few niggles from 1995-2003, after that it went downhill.
Which was just sad, I still respect old nav, ndd, norton speed, and windoctor for their ease of use.
Its all gone baa humbug!
Now we must use crap software just to use our systems and not even then is it always safe to use your programs even with that but at least you can control it.
If you switch to something better there is no garantee that it will stay that way.
Now I want to be protected.
Its just I really don't want to worry about program x suddenly being marked as bad even though it was good for ages.
I don't need to reformat every couple weeks because things get deleted.
I don't want to search for things or check things were working and I really don't care about babysitting.
In the early days I did that.
For whatever reason when I was 10 years yunger I enjoyed that.
Not so much now.
When msse first came out I realised how much time I was wasting.
I havn't found anything to compair, not that win defender is safe, false alarms on a lot of blind games and programs not as much as other software but still means I have to keep watch.
Even so I can still use my computer most of the time.
