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…

Windows 10 - Something unknown accesses my IMAP Email - Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Help - BleepingComputer

Hi guys,

This is the first time I have submitted anything, so hope I am following the rules.

For at least 6 months, some unknown installed program is able to access my email server - I know it does because I watch the system firewall logs on the server's Cpanel. The bad program on my PC is trying to access my email via an IMAP login. Thankfully, I do not have an IMAP account - just POP. So - they have the wrong PW and it keeps getting rejected by the server. 

It happens within seconds of the PC being turned on.

It happens when my Thunderbird email is turned off. Somehow it doesn't need an email program to work.

It tries sporadically through the day - mostly about 20 times a day.

When I run a surveillance program like tcpview.exe  - it turns itself off so it does not access the server while the program to detect live programs is turned on. Same thing happens with TaskManager.

I have run Malwarebytes and TrendMicro free home Bitdefender - nothing is ever found.

I used to have an Edge browser but I deleted the toolbar link and it doesn't even show up anywhere that I can find - wonder if it was fake. I also used a browser called Vivaldi - it may have had issues.

So just now - I ran the FRST64 and it shows a lot of stuff which are attached .txt docs. When I post this note, I don't see the attachments on the post. Do I have to put them in this text? 

I am getting so worn out trying to find this hijacker thing. 

So, if anyone can see what would be causing this, thanks for helping.
