Avira Antivirus Pro - Review 2020 - PCMag India

Avira Antivirus Pro - Review 2020 - PCMag IndiaAvira Antivirus Pro - Review 2020 - PCMag IndiaPosted: 11 Jun 2020 12:00 AM PDTEvery computer needs antivirus protection, and one way companies can support that aim is to provide free antivirus to the masses. But these companies can't survive unless some users shell out their hard-earned cash for paid antivirus utilities. Piling on pro-only tools and components is one way companies encourage upgrading to a paid antivirus. Avira Antivirus Pro adds several components not available to users of Avira Free Security, but they don't really add much value. The biggest reason to pay for it is if you want to use Avira in a commercial setting, which isn't allowed with the free version.Avira's pricing is undeniably on the high side, with a list price of $59.88 per year for one license, $71.88 for three, and $95.88 for five. Admittedly, it seems to be perpetually on sale; just now, the one-license price is discounted to $44.99. That…

Well the good news is Ivent needed to post here in ages. I was afraid Id forgotten my password.

I noticed yesterday and the day before in NoScript that there was a script trying to connect to a website jackyhillty dot com or net. I thought maybe it was some new widget on websites at first, but I soon noticed it was on EVERY page. Thank goodness for NoScript! I scanned with AVG and MalwareBytes and one of them found a PUP something and quarantined it. I also ran spybot s&D. I downloaded kaspersky but it doesnt like malwarebytes, so I cancelled Kaspersky and figured Id remove Malwarebytes the next day (it was 6am lol). Which I did. Then needed to restart to install Kaspersky, but they keyboard was disabled at the Windows login. I tried booting into safe mode, no luck with the repeated shutdowns method. Frustrated, I was able to get into the ASUS bios and booted into Elementary OS (which I setup the other day finally after years of planning; Ive had enough of Bill Gates and his arrogance in the public sphere) where I did a little research and was about to post here but saw I needed to get the Windows version info, so I decided to restart into windows one more time to try to get it or try from ASUS bios. It was then, that I found screen keyboard and was able to login to windows! The keyboard was now working, and I was able to get Kaspersky installed, and Im going to try scanning with that.

Is there anything else I should do to make sure this malware is gone?

Version 1903 OS Build 18362.720

Let me know anything else you need.

Thanks as always.

Once this is done and I get everything in order, I am switching over to Linux permanently. :D
