    Believe what you want, If any single AV product worked that well Id be out of a job.
    I see these infections every other day, on PC's with all the major AV products

    Time to get real perhaps ??

    OK 1101

    I am happy to wait.

    Please let me know when you have a "real world" one to let us test.

    Waiting - waiting - oh sorry you don't have one?

    Result = BS!

    Please inform us when we are wrong.

    Best AV defense is common sense.
    Thats why some get infected, over & over & over again, & others havnt been hit in over 10 years+
    I totally agree with 1101 on this as well as the comments -- NO antivirus in the world is perfect.

    OK Scubadoo you want a infection named-- put this where it fits ---

    Customers PC, has MSSE completely upto date, completely missed and allowed infections through, and its obviously infected quite badly --

    Doing a scan with the bootable nod32 scanner, @92% and so far has found 8 infections , two of them in different locations on the drive, Nod32 names them as Scrinject.B.Gen Virus

    Be careful what you ask for, you may just get it.

    You were given it, 8 in fact that MSSE Missed completely.

    And that the best you can do your reply as you put it = BS

    Obviously just an idiot who knows bugger all about real world infections.

    Spose you use Nortons as well and think its good.

    AVs generally pick up only viruses. And they vary. NOD32
    MSSE

    In that order.

    But in addition you need antispyware - more than one.

    We know - we've spent years cleaning this stuff out of PCs, and trying various products to do so.

    Real life example - I had a .vbs virus today which got past the useless corporate anti-virus at work despite it having been in the wild for 14 months.
    I was also surprised at the number of other AVs it got past - see the report here -

    Would you say it is better to slave a drive to scan it, then it is to try and scan a drive from the OS. Could this be a reason the results are different. would you get the same results scanning from a bootable MSSE disc if there was such a thing?
