    Best answer: I used to use McAfee, until they screwed me.
    I went to install the new update and it would not take.
    I called support, the guy said he would install it remotely.
    But first he had to uninstall the old one.
    He uninstalled it. And released a quarantined virus that the program had not destroyed... It locked down my system so nothing could be done.
    I did not get an apology, all he said was, "When You get it fixed, call me back and I will install the update, bye".

    I went to Staples, the TECH there got everything working again, and installed Kaspersky. Never went back to McAfee.

    I recommend, for you not to rely on anti virus software. I relied a long time ago on anti virus programs, and it has caused me more grief, and more problems, so now I no longer use it.

  • What could happen if someone knows my IP address ?

    Best answer: If someone knows your IP address all they can do is: 1. They can attempt to DoS or DDoS you which is basically to flood your network with a massive amount of sent packets in hopes that they will knock your internet offline / make it to where you cannot use your internet "For a period of time". 2.

    Best answer: If someone knows your IP address all they can do is:
    1. They can attempt to DoS or DDoS you which is basically to flood your network with a massive amount of sent packets in hopes that they will knock your internet offline / make it to where you cannot use your internet "For a period of time".

    2. They can port scan your IP address with known or Custom port scanners in hopes that they will find OPEN unfiltered ports... if they are able to find OPEN ports this means that you are most likely hosting some form of "Daemon" or "Service" behind your Modem or "NAT Router" for example ... a "Video game" or something else that allows clients to connect in from the internet.

    if they are able to port scan your IP and find open ports the only thing they can do is attempt to banner grab on scanned ports to find out what services you are running and then attempt to find a known exploit for that software / service .... and the worst thing that could possibly happen "IF" they are able to all these things would be that they find a Remote code execution exploit for your software / service .... if they where able to accomplish this then they would essentially have 100% control of your PC and could then upload and execute Malware to maintain illegal remote access into your computer. From this point they could spy on you in every way you could possibly imagine, they could even use your PC as a "Pivot Point" to further attack other devices and Computers on your local area network as well as the internet thus making it appear that your devices are the cause of any further "internet crimes" committed.... Hell they could even turn your PC into a socks5 proxy and download illegal materials and you could be blamed for it.

    But to be 100% honest with you I highly doubt whoever knows your IP is capable of doing all of these things LOL no one really researches this type of stuff, and it can be a very difficult task to accomplish depending on a persons IT Skill-set.

    to sum this up they can do alot with your IP but not too much of it can really effect you and in all honesty its not really worth their time to comit to something like this.

    They could:
    1.DoS or DDoS you
    2.Port scan your IP for vulnerable software's so they can backdoor your PC
    3.ISP DOX you which is basically where they can call your ISP and claim to be you.... in order to obtain your names and phone numbers.... perhaps even your address ect.. ect...

  • Further to my question about terminating my Norton antivirus . I have 'discovered' that in fact my computer is loaded with W. Defender?

    Best answer: Windows Defender in Windows 7 was not a true anti-virus package, and was superseded by Microsoft Security Essentials. When MSE is installed in Windows 7 I believe the old Windows Defender was automatically disabled. From Windows 8, an enhanced version of MSE was released that adopted the old Windows Defender name, but this time it is a true anti-virus package.

    You should never have more than one anti-virus program performing real time scanning on a computer. Multiple packages can interfere with each other and actually reduce protection to a level below any of the packages running in isolation. If you have Windows 7 running Windows Defender, then that is the old version that was not a true anti-virus. It would be very unwise to rely on that to provide protection.

    MSE as used on Windows 7 and the new Windows Defender in Windows 8 and later versions, although a true anti-virus packages, are not as effective at protecting Windows systems as Norton.

    When Norton is installed on Windows 8 or later, then it should automatically disable the real time part of Windows Defender. I do not know whether this mechanism also applies to MSE and the original old type of Windows Defender.

    Since you say you are running Windows 7, I am surprised that you did not mention Microsoft Security Essentials. Does this mean that your system is lacking any security updates and service packs?

    I hope this helps.
