Post Is it necessary to run real-time virus protection?

Okay, simple question. Is running real-time virus protection necessary, or does a once-a-week manual scan suffice?

I always disabled it in Norton Antivirus 2004 (it made my computer run like molasses), and after dumping it for Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0, my initial instinct was to disable it. But is that a good idea?

Your comments will be greatly appreciated.

I'm not running ANY real-time antivirus or anti-adware software.
Viruses: 0
Adware/spyware: 0
But then again, I'm a cautious user.
Windows (and other relevant SW, such as SQL server) are fully patched, ports closed, I'm behind cheapo ADSL router (NAT and "firewall")...
I surf only with FireFox and my mail client is Thunderbird, I never open any attachments not I download/run fishy SW.

I've done it for years, last time I "got" anything was Code Red few years ago...

if you're cautious, probably not. I've never had an infection, whether I ran real time scan or not, but I would suggest scanning anything you download off the net.

I never run Virus scanner software... like, ever. At all. Period.

From time to time though I'll either install one, or run one from the web. Usually the only responses I get are false positives, things like "data-miner" cookie warnings, etc. Nothing too terrible.

Speaking of which... I'm about due.

If you keep your windows up to date,your browser up to date and maybe run a firewall you pretty safe.

I do keep my real-time scan on,however I leave on a low setting since I have my software scan once a day at around 4-5am when I'm sleeping.

24 years of running personal computers and I've never gotten an infection - and I've never had realtime AV on my primary gaming puter (which I also use mainly for web browsing anyway).

On the other hand, I run an AV on the proxy server (and file server) (and email)

Yes, run a real-time agent if it doesn't impact performance too much. And use good judgement for your browsing habits. If you download odd things, or visit nefarious websites, then you'll need to have a lot of hot protection.

I use a HOST file, with Spyware Blaster, McAfee Enterprise 8.0i (Real Time scan), with FireFox, via a NAT + SPI router firewall. I used to run Sygate Personal Firewall also, but after my last reinstall (upgraded hard drives) I decided not to go back, as it game me odd blocking on other machines on the network when .NET 2.0 was running and using IP to communicate.

A lot depends on your software choices. Windows + IE + Outlook means lots of exploits are available, so you need regular OS, IE, Outlook and AV updates. Replace IE and Outlook with other alternatives (i.e. check out the mozilla foundation, or look at Opera) and it gets better. But the fundamental things are : What websites do you browse? What software do you download? What IM clients do you use? These things will determine how much protection from yourself you require.

An anti-virus free system is DOABLE provided you know what are you are getting into and take appropriate steps.

1) Use an online mail system such as hotmail to eleminate actually downloading mail to your computer.

2) NEVER downlaod attachments without being 100% sure of their content.

3) NEVER downlaod anysoftware without it coming directly from the company and then onyl deal with reputatble companies.

4) DO NOT enage in filesharing software.

5) either use an effective anti-spyware program or use an alternative browser. I suggest Opera because Firefox is becoming targetted more and more as it gains in popularity.

6) Do at least weekly an online various scan for safety.

Well, you can drive around in your car and never get into an accident. So does that mean you never need to wear a seat belt, or have a car with air bags, crush protection etc. Of course not.

I can give you a link that will get you infected instantly if you want!

I recently did an reformat, booted up. Installed drivers, got everything up and working. So I started to download windows updates on a fresh semi-old copy of XP. In the ten minutes I was downloading service packs and getting ready to install Firefox/Nod32 and setup my firewall I got 4 viruses 2 trojans and 3 random malwares. All by just going to MS site pulling down updates.

Freaky. So yea, I don't really agree to not running real time. Even for a short period.

unpatched windows can be infected in 10 minutes due to all these worms targeting known exploits.

That's why I built my machine offline, using Autopatcher XP Apr Full + May updates. Meant I was patched before I went online to patch office, and I already had McAfee etc ready to update.

If you agree, post again and I'll pm you the link. Natrually if you have a good virus checker you are safe. But if you don't, or have no protection it is nearly 100% certain you will get infected.

I don't think it's necessary at all, as long as you have full control over your computer (i.e. no people who click on exe files for fun). I'm not running live anti-virus but I have anti-virus that I load up if I'm cautious of a file or need to do a scan. I haven't had a virus for a long time.

As soon as you hit the site, it will attempt to infect you. You don't have to click anything.

Just a heads up, Avast! has caught a trojan from a link posted on this very forum.

It's saved me lot of time from re installing windows every few months.

Note: Not all viruses crash your computer. If I were a hacker, thats probably the last thing I would want to do. You see i would slap type snaching bugs on IE or MSWord, using a word filter algorithm to search for senistve information such as credicard numbers, social security numbers, addresses, etc..

I could also uses your computer as a relay. So I download music or movies off the most infamamous websites which are well known to the public, so that they never be able to track me.

finaly I could use your computer as an amplifyer to magnify irrelivant data packets which will bounce around tha net like a tsunami and crash a major web site. You firewall will mean nothing since my trojan creats back doors for me to walts in.

the only time would it be nessary to crash your computer which has served me as my loal minion would be to illiminate my tracks as others try to trace me.

Can i really do all that, no. But there are people who can and are doing it.

The only thing you can do to protect your computer and flip the finger at those A-holes is a simple installation of a resident scaning virus scanner.

Anyone have any good programs which do real time virus protection without too much slowdown besides mcafee, I don't mind having to buy it, however, I'd rather get something which doesn't require a yearly 50 dollar subscription fee.

I think if you're REALLY careful, you might be able to avoid getting infections on the web, but you just can't be 100% sure sometimes. Vendors sometimes put out infected files (by accident).

Also, on a home network you can't be 100% sure of what everybody else is doing on the network (atleast here I can't). Could never be 100% confident that someone hasn't unleashed something by accident on the network.

Rather save myself the grief of it all by running an antivirus JUST incase.

Anyway, I've yet to catch a virus in all my years of computing (even on the network here), but it's like safe sex...only takes one time for you're world to come crashing down and then you wake up with Chlamydia or something...so to speak ).

I run Symantec Antivirus Corporate Edition version 10 and has virtually no measurable impact on performance so I leave it enabled.

I have never had a virus ever though.

I have gotten several viruses before. It was probably due to someone visiting questionable websites that install a bunch of baddies. Luckily, my antivirus caught most of the viruses though. That was a 4 years ago. Currently, I am using McAfee Enterprise 8.0i.
