or if you use WINE* to run cracks/warez.


........I feel like clearing this once and for all.

Warez/cracks/keygens themselves DON'T contain virii. Outsiders of the warez scene do that. Why people would infest thier own works with virii is beyond me.

Besides, the AVs most of the time have false positives on these files due to the packers the reversers use to protect/encrypt thier work.

Yes, there is such bullshit as groups/people stealing cracks from other groups/people.

Hmmm...

Can anyone recommend me a really lightweight antivirus, or is NOD as good as it gets there?

You are retarded and provide a good case study demonstrating the benefit that eugenics could have on mankind, franpa.

Then again, good court fools are so hard to find these days...

I use CommonSense AV.

It's not compatible with franpa's system, due to an I D 10 T component.





(I occasionally grab a "real" AV and do a sweep. Still clean.)

Give franpa a break. The inability to spell antivirus is not criminal. There's plenty of time to smack him later.

What, because "LOL WINDOZE HAZ TEH VIRII!111" got old roughly three seconds after it was first posted to the internet we're not allowed to crap on franpa for perpetuating it?

Thank you for correcting me. I never knew that there was no such thing as plurals. :roll:

No there isn't.

Hi,

I am using AVG anti virus from the past 3+ years. I would recommend using the AVG FREE version first.

Microsoft Security Essentials is fairly new, and also free. Of course, I'm not using it, I'm using Common Sense 2009.
