Total newfaggot to technology here, found out that avast (yeah I know, I will be changing antiviruses soon.) smart scan now scans for passwords, does avast actually read every password on your computer? Since, that means avast itself behaves similarly to a virus.

I wouldn't doubt it. These companies probably make more money selling your personal data (eg. "web protection" that really sends a list of websites you're visiting to the company) than anything else.

Stop using avast. Why were you ever using Avast.

>(yeah I know..)

Anon, if you knew.

JUST WHY

Since my brother would say any antivirus other than avast is a virus and bitch at me for hours,

Got any suggestions for a better one though? I haven't gotten a virus ever, but I still prefer having one.
>>
>>51581105

Well, first off. Your brother does not know what he is talking about and I wouldn't be surprised if he collects old ram sticks from laptops.

He doesn't know shit, don't trust him.

Just use Microsoft Security Essentials or Malware Bytes. That's all you need unless you will bundle it with CommonSense2015.

Microsoft Security Essentials.

Thanks, I'll download malwarebytes and turn on security essentials. Avast is becoming more shit with each update.

The main reason I haven't gotten a virus ever is because of me using some common sense when using the internet, along with a sandbox program to isolate anything in the event my common sense fails.

Best Antivirus is Common Sense 2016 Beta Edition
>Not allowing JS to be run on rogue sites
>Using Package managers or downloads from trusted sources
>Regular Update
>Not watching porn from anything other than Xvideos and Pornhub
>Disabling Flash
>Maybe use Security Essentials
There why use shityy software to keep computer safe.Also you will learn more ways to keep securing your computer if you use CS 2016 Developer Preview version.

MSE has shit detection rates and even Microsoft admitted it.

>>51581260

What sandbox program are you using ?

I find most anti virus to simply take up too much ram and necessary and intrusive functions.
>>
>>51581553
Using Sandboxie, also use VirtualBox as an isolated environment occasionally.

>CS 2016 Developer Preview version

What are you on about ?
>>
>>51581609

Not bad.
>>
>>51581445
Are you from 2013?
>>
>>51581445
You just have to not be fucking stupid and download random shit from the internet, the only type of person who would need an anti virus is a fucking kid.

hello newfriend

Different anon here. Got anything that gives free real-time protection? Cause that's the only reason I have Avast installed
