(first - i can't do a lot of LJing for a while cuz i only have one hand - http://www.madman101.livejournal.com/565

i wanted to let you know about a fine new security programme i found - prevx 2.0 - antivirus / anti-malware

it's a heurist pgrm - meaning it doesn't completely scan file info for proof - it does a simpler but extensive scan on how files ACT - meaning it doesn't use a lot of memory

i've been using another heuristic prgm that everyone should get - spyware blaster (www.download.com) - which does anti-spyware - and i've been wanting a similar pgrm for ANTI-VIRUS, but the only other one was spyware hunter, which is kind of a lemon - yet a prob w/ BOTH of these is you have to wait for updates to stay on-guard i.e. up-to-date

so i was so happy to install prevx because it is an extensive pgrm that covers both anti-virus and anti-spyware - and it can be run along-side any other anti-v and anti-s programmes - PLUS you don't wait for updates - you are instead informed instantly via any other prevx users in the world - (i'm not sure if this is P2P, but even if it is, at this point it seems exceedingly trustworthy)

so i plugged that puppy right into my firewall's trusted zone and consider it as a second firewall! - it's free-to-try but only $25 to buy - really worth it! - (www.dowload.com should redirect to version 2.0 - if not go to www.prevx.com)

All the protection you could need in one easy-to-use package Safeguards your PC and personal information from theft and attack by Spyware, Rootkits, Trojans, Viruses, Bots, Adware and all other forms of malware and crimeware. By using Prevx 2, you are joining one of the largest security communities in the world. Rather than giving a single classification, Prevx 2 identifies the structure, code sequences and behaviours of a file in seven different ways to block unwanted files faster. Prevx 2 monitors each file that is allowed to run for up to 300 possible behaviors, to ensure you are protected at all times. Prevx 2 runs silently in the background, with no inconvenience or interruption to your work.


"catches 100%"

i also suggest AVAST anti-virus (and/or AVG) - but ALVIR is also looking very good
