Why did Antivir become so horrible in the past few years?

Everything looks like shit, it barely finds anything anymore and you can't even remove it from the autostart menu without some stupid fiddling.

>> No.46470918

After not using an AV for a few years I saw a NOD32 1 year license for 5 euros on eBay.

Runs smooth, doesn't kill ram.

I only come to these threads to say this. Latest Windows with all security features enabled (smartscreen, uac, updates, defender etc.) is enough. Do a monthly scan with MBAM if you're that mad.

I've been using Avast for years. I still remember that retarded music player-like UI.
It's getting way too bloated and annoying though. Especially their deepscan shit is annoying when running my own executables cause it kills them off, scans them for a minute and then restarts them.

>> No.46471210

>retarded music player-like UI.
4.8!!1 oh, damn i remember that shit.
but it's still a pretty good antivirus.
>way too bloated
completely agree

but boot-time scan is the bomb, especially when family members come home with their pendrives with "just a couple of dwg files from office." or "a new song" and end up infecting the home computer with every known autrorun-aww.

Got bitdefender total security, it's the most ram inefficient av i've seen. It's supposed to be the best but it could find out i had a shitty trojan on my usb. My face when i handed it to a grill to pass her some class stuff and her shitty av did detect it.

Famous last words.

>> No.46471726

Huh. I often wonder how realistic the testing is on av sites, so I wouldn't be surprised if that turned out the case. I've used virustotal site as double check with suspect files (say game cracks) and such, it's not a perfect set it and forget it scenario and a lot of the av on there spit back false positives, but usually unless it's say 50% of the AV's on there getting a hit it's not time to worry. Best I can think of.

NOD32 is legit the tightest shit ever. IDK the footprint but it doesn't even affect the speed of my Core2Duo T7400. It's just fast and easy, and doesn't bother me unless shit's broke, yo.

I use Linux with standard ad-blockimg and script-blocking extensions.

In my Windows VM, I do the same but also install Avira Antivir.
