  • IT_Architect - False Positives, incorrect driver information, incorrect system information...

    I own an IT company, and we are frequently evaluating products for our own use and our customers. The concept of one tool that keeps software and drivers up to date, cleans the registry, and protects the computer is good. My biggest problem with it, is it shows false positives, and I have found many other posts on the internet that confirm my experience. That can only mean one of two things, neither of which are good, and has only one result. Curiosity got the best of me as to which, so I dug a little deeper. It doesn't appear to be intentional, but the result is I cannot trust it. Judging by the virus name, it appears they are using the same detection mechanism as Lavasoft's Ad-Aware program, which generates the same false positives from its not-so-good heuristics. Since it won't tell you the files unless you buy, I ran Lavasoft's Ad-Aware to see which files before I call it a false positive. It thinks encrypt.exe from DesignCAD is Trojan.Win32.Generic!BT and mgtools.exe, a Major Geeks anti-malware tool, is Trojan-Dropper.Win32.Agent. I didn't let it scan any more to tell me a fairy tale about the root kit, and fished the two files out of quarantine. It also states it finds out-of-date drivers. I decided not to be too hard on it, and picked an easy one, the audio driver. It said it was up to date. It wasn't There have been several revisions since. OK, I'll do a tough one then, the video. It was closer, but not up to date. If they are using Microsoft's driver version, that would not be a safe bet. Computer manufacturers may use a certain manufacturer's chip sets, but often design added features into their own card, thereby requiring a different driver. Example: Your video might have an nVidia chip, but if you install the driver from nVidia, you may very well encounter problems. This is doubly-true of laptops. The hardware manufactures even state not to use their driver unless you have a retail card. Microsoft Update never updates hardware drivers automatically because of this. My hope was that it would check the computer manufacturer's site. Unless it does, the feature is worse than nothing because it can mess up your machine, and Microsoft will have the same drivers on their update site. It's software analysis is good. Having that up to date can save your .... It's registry analysis is accurate, for what it finds, however, if you use one of the free registry cleaners ahead of it, it does not come up with significant issues. It thinks my system has a Intel Core2, but it has an Intel Core2 Duo, not the same at all. These discoveries do not not instill confidence. As one poster mentioned, this is not a fast process as shows on TV. The sun would be rising after the girl's night out before the scan finishes.

  • Jeff B - Works well, doesn't slow down the laptop

    The McAfee Internet Security is priced well and does a good job protecting my laptop. The Anti --Virus package came with my Asus laptop and I decided to purchase the same package again, i didn't want the total protection for fear that this would slow down the computer. I do recommend this product, the price is excellent.

  • Michelle Gammage - Good Product, not the best care.

    Came in mostly good condition, but was slightly warped. Beautiful design and colors, and lots of helpful/interesting information throughout it's pages.
