AVAST!

Alright, Im not a fan of Free Antivirus products. Madalas na effective pa din ang mga simple and handy solutions that I learned to remove the virus manually. But this AVAST is somehow unique from the others.

Since infected na ang PC, I installed AVAST and performed a manual scan. Upon detection, it requested for a reboot. Not a good point. Dapat powerful siya to remove all its detection kahit walang restart ng system. But anyway since very annoying na ang malware, then reboot it is!

This screen amazed me.

pasikat ang 22" Samsung wide screen LCD monitor

Sa dame ng AV products na nakita ko, AVAST pa lang ang nakita kong nagperform ng boot scan. Why is this good? Remember that it's best to remove the viruses manually kung nasa Safe Mode ka, meaning walang mag-rurun na program unless you clicked it. Most of the viruses now has the ability to hide upon startup, so kapag normal mode, mauunahan ka na nya maghide di mo na siya mahuhuli. Now think kung nag-scan na siya before tumuloy sa Windows, better yan, detected lahat!

ok, may detection.

And of course, nadetect nya. Im just not sure kung nadelete nya lahat. But anyway, very good pa din! I tried AVG and AVIRA, walang nagawa pareho. Nagcrash pareho ang mga AV's na yan due to that virus. Sayang yung AVIRa, proactive pa naman yun.
Moving on, eto lang di ko nagustuhan.

dapat IKAW ang sure and hindi ako!

Kung sabe mong merong element ng malware ang file na yan, sure ka dapat na harmful yan at dapat i-delete immediately. Bakit tinatanong mo pa kung Am I sure to delete it?
I still deleted them all. After all, masira man ang system, meron naman tinatawag na reformat at ghost image. Haha

Ikaw, what AV do you use at home?

Avira gamit ko. OK naman s'yang kapartner ng Internet Suite ko. Marami nga lang silang ads.

gillboard said...

wala ako naintindihan sa tech talk na to!!! bobo ako sa computer eh!!!

jimbo said...

AVG gamit ko pero yung full version na. So ano yung recommended mong AV?

Pwede din pala tawag sayo AVG e, antivirus girl. =)

Chyng said...

@gasdude,
AVIRA is good too! mejo noisy lang..

@gilbert,
sobra ka naman, ang XBOX ay computer din ryt?

@kuya,
hhmm, for me nde outstanding si AVG kahit kelan.. ;)

try AVAST!

Lord CM said...

Kaspersky Antivirus ang gamit ng kumpanya...

Tinatanong ng AV kung sure kang i-delete ung file kasi baka importante ung file sayo, baka kasi pwede pang ma-clean ng ibang AV ang file at magamit mo pa ito :D ...

Reformat will delete all your files sa PC mo pati personal files.. Ghost Image, kung nasira ang system mo ganun din ang mangyayari sa ni-ghost mo dba?

Chyng said...

wow Charlie may point ka dun. pero kung ako ay regular user, mapaparanoid ako at lahat ng detections ay di ko na i-dedelete. or dapat may nakalagay na "strongly suggest" sa UI nila.

Ghost Image, no, di siya apektado. naka-store sila sa ibang drive, so kahit ireformat, safe sila dun. dba? :D

wanderingcommuter said...

being a former tech support dude, i advise using NOD32, CAISS at AVG...
no to mcafee at norton!!!

KORKI said...

parang sa pc ko lang hheeheh:)

Everlito (ever) Villacruz said...

ha ha ha, bagay sa no spam no virus to...usually preparado na talaga ngayon lahat ng pc o laptop. sa virus,yan kasi ang kumikita ngayon sell AV.pero minsan sila rin ang gumagawa ng AV.

dito ang gamit yung esetNOD32.
otomatik na mapupunta sa quarantine yung virus then erase mo na sya dun.

galing galing ng post mo...madam IT CHYNG!salamat.:)

PUSANG-gala said...

talagang tech review to ha----yugatech---kaw ba yan?lol

natry ko na rin yan dati----kaso diko sure na sa dami ng nadedetect nya e totoo pinagsasabi nya---hehe. I useAVG home edition. Buhay pa namn laptop ko til now---lol

KRIS JASPER said...

Wow Ms Chyng! Techie ka nga. May AVG ako pero yun lang... Yung AOL pala di ba meron ding protection for their users? Yun, Once in 2 years nira-run ko yun.

Busy sa Blog and Facebook eh.

Roninkotwo said...

Chyng, wala akong naintindihan, pero mukhang ikaw ang sagot sa problema ko..dinumog ng virus ang computer ko, pag hindi ito nasolusyunan ng IT namin, sayo ko itatanong..AH1N1 lang kasi ang alam kong virus.

dylan dimaubusan said...

Wahehe,natawa ako dun sa are you sure you want to delete? Parang photo sa friendster, may confirmation.

I'm no tech geek. Avast kami dati. then AVG. Pero kakatapos lang ireformat yung CPU kaya di ko pa nakakalkal PC.

Pero nose bleed ako dito..haha

CheezeCurlz said...

Hey Chyng! Gamit ko Avast! Gusto ko sha...hehe! Tanggal agad ang matinik na virus.

I hate AVG, update ng update, bawat bukas ko ng PC ng BF ko, naga-update sha.

Dati Fan ako ng PC Cilin ng Trendmicro, subok ko na yun. Pro AVAST has done a magnificent work on my PC, thus far. May voice prompted announcement pa ng update. Hahaha! Ang cool!

Nothing beats backing up of files. Yung Ghost Image, tama ka Chyng, stored sa ibang lugar, sa ibang partition ng Hard Drive. Mejo pareho ng concept ng RAID 1. Just be careful not to format all partitions. =)

Haha! Serious topic.

Looking For The Source said...

hay naku.

kuya, patulong nmn. may prob ako sa pc.

buti na lang may brother akong techy. hehehe.

ask me about biological viruses, ayun cguro masasagot ko pa.

Allen Yuarata said...

Avira gamit ko. Pagnaglilimewire ako, saka nagkakavirus lagi. At dahil di ako kasing techie ng blog entry na ito, isa lang ang kinahahantungan ko. Reformat. Haha.

Buti nakapartition, di naaapektuhan yung mga files.

Isa lang ang nakikita ko dun sa tanong ng computer. Tatanga-tanga din siya kasi di siya sure. Partida, computer na yun ha. haha!

Good day ate chyng!

Chyng said...

@sir lloyd,

Chyng said...

@dylan,
bsta alam magformat, buhay ka! :D

@nadine,
very good points ha. natuwa naman ako fan ka ng TrendMicro. mabigat kasi yun, naapektuhan nya performance ng system pag na-install at nagsscan na. pero i love Trend! pero Avast muna ngayon, free pa!

@source,
yan the best, merong handy na gagawa ng computer! :D

@allen,
haha, ako din hobby lang magreformat. at dahil mainipin ako, gumawa nako ng ghost image. mas mabilis. reload lang ng reload! :D

Sorry Ewik pero I find CAISS heavy and not that good..lolz
AVG, my alltime AV buddy..
coupled with Malwarebytes for all kinds of malwares/spywares.
Ccleaner to clean the registry and make sure it's all intact (to fix corruptions due to failed installations/updates and clean the trashes on the system)
haven't tried using NOD32 pero ok din daw yun.. ;)
Loved reading this post, btw..

Hmm. I'm using AVIRA because I feel other AVs can't detect trojan. I might try this AVAST if your recommend it. Looks convincing
