    people should stop worrying about FPs unless you trust that file like you trust your mom.

    Sure but you are now having 2 conflicting situations. One YES(delete/quarantine) and one NO(no action) or one YES(delete) and the other also YES(quarantine), then how?

    One software is reporting a FP?

    no, one software doesn't have a signature on said malware yet.

    Or that second software do NOT have a chance to act on the malware because it(malware) was already being acted upon by the first software.

    If this is the case then the second software is not responsive and redundant, no?

    yes but you will expect redundancy when you decide to run 2 AVs.

    Two AV's is ridiculous. Period.

    I worked on a PC recently that had 7 security products on it, all of them fully redundant. Of course after all of that trash was removed the PC felt better than new. I can see being worried, but one can take it too far.

    See that's your opinion. If you use two cloud avs then i do not think there wont be any issues except when two avs detect a file as virus or Trojan you must only choose 1 to quarantine or delete it.

    It's an opinion based on being an MSP for 32K+ endpoints, it's rarely a good idea to have two AV's. If you really want two engines, then use a layered approach. Put one engine on the gateway/wan and another engine on the endpoints. Or use a multi-engine product like Emsisoft, 360, Trustport, Gdata, etc.

    I think I'm gonna stay with Kaspersky Free. I like avast! more protection wise, but I really dislike the direction they are heading with usability and interface. It's just weeeeeird. Where Kaspersky is just logical, nicely organized, everything just makes sense.

    Just installed Kaspersky Free on my HP X2 hybrid tablet/laptop and the thing has utterly GARBAGE support for touch devices. Touch simply doesn't work. You have to try really hard to do something with it and it'll just open or change everything else but the thing under your finger. Kaspersky, fix this nonsense!

    This should be fixed in the upcoming patch C, currently undergoing public testing.

    Agreed. Since Avast rolled out their new UI it's felt like a chore to use. It takes a figurative aeon from clicking the tray icon to the UI actually appearing, and once it does appear the whole thing feels sluggish and awkward to navigate.

    I'm staying with it and have it installed on all 10 of my laptops/desktops and 1 server. It's perfect so far, absolutely no issues. I also like it because it enhances the layered approach I use. Since on my WAN I have Fortinet, behind that in transparent I have Bit Defender/ClamAV combo on an Untangle UTM. This offers a 4th, unique antivirus engine to my layered defense. If I was to use a Bit Defender or Forticlient Engine product it wouldn't provide any enhanced layering due to the Untangle.

    I've started the process of converting my relatives to KAF. I just removed Avira and Avast on a few machines over the weekend and dropped KAF on them. Everyone says the machines feel snappier. I think this is going to destroy the free market penetration from the big free players to be honest. It's just a better product overall IMO.

    After that incident you reported many of the users here are aware that you have a $5000 hardened layered-security system with hardware.

    You can use many layers of security software(with hardware) but just make sure you have the RIGHT layered-security system instead of just a layered-security system, ok?

    If state actors want to hack your $5000 system can you block them even with your new setup? Compare your home system to Bill Gates home system who is more difficult to hack? You think Bill Gates home security system costs only $5000?

    It's not so much about the cost of something but rather more about how one configures it and their knowledge of potential attacks, threat surfaces, etc. You can throw 100K at a network and still be wide open to a variety of attacks and intrusions.

    In another thread I explained in detail how to lock down a cheap commercial router. You don't need superhuman gear or knowledge to have a good solid WAN from all but the most persistent thug. I'm an enthusiast, and do this for a living so that's my reasoning. :) (aside from the fact I've been regularly targeted in the past)

    The 1st paragraph spoke of yourself with the 1st security setup.

    Do I have a sandbox installed. Yes, I do and is it active? Nope.

    You have being targeted is because you are outstanding and not because you are just a normal home user. That's for sure. If you do not go around and reveal your set up I believe you would be much much safer.

    Like I mentioned it's not just a hardened layered security system but the RIGHT hardened layered-security system that counts.
