  6. Windows XP End Of Support

    After 12 years, support for Windows XP has ended on April 8, 2014. There will be no more security updates or technical support for the Windows XP operating system. Without critical Windows XP security updates, your PC may become vulnerable to harmful viruses, spyware, and other malicious software which can steal or damage your business data and information. Many software vendors will no longer support their products running on Windows XP as they are unable to receive Windows XP updates. Most PC hardware manufacturers will stop supporting Windows XP on existing and new hardware.

  7. Tip of the Day Always keep an eye on what you click and download, including music, movies, files, browser plug-ins or add-ons
    Be wary of pop-up windows that ask you to download software or that offer to fix your computer. Often these pop-ups will claim that your computer has been infected and that their download can fix it – don’t believe them. Close the window and make sure you don’t click inside the pop-up window. Do not open files of unknown types, or if you see unfamiliar browser prompts or warnings asking you to open a file. Sometimes malware may prevent you from leaving a page if you land on it, for example by repeatedly opening a download prompt. If this happens, use your computer’s task manager or activity monitor to close your browser.

    At least they have improved its engine.
    One good thing they have done and does earn my respect is the On-Demand Integration.

    Are they still using the browser addon for Web Protection?

    I haven't used Ad-Aware for years.. So would anyone consider this a worth while on demand scanner?

    I have not tried the latest version but the previous version didn't play well with other real-time AV's and you could disabled its real-time protection but still its services would load with each system startup or each time it was launched using up resources. You would have to manually kill its services each time you ran a on-demand scan and go back to its services and disable them from loading with system startup.

    I do wished they had just a on-demand scanner version.

    Thanks.:D

    Don't worry, they will be on the top, believe me. They now have new VirusLab, new programmers. In last 6 months they have improved greatly. You can't even compare v9 to v10. :)

    Nice to know. I am a little curious. Hopefully one of our video review gurus can do a thorough test soon.

    As far as I remember, Avira could always be installed without the Real-time Guard, making it useful for on-demand only.

    I know they have done improvements but I thought they used VIPRE's VirusLab, they have their own lab now independent from VIPRE?

    Thanks.:D
