No issues for me earlier today, and I visited most of the mentioned sites at least once this morning.

I have been using Eset Smart Security for years and never came close to a virus. I think I’ll stick with it.

He :wink:
i think you’re both right here, you are inhabitants of different planets that’s all.
For you Alan I guess (only) that you do not want to see even a half shadow of any suspect files, and then that rather touchy tool works great.
In my case, it is way too touchy and leaves me with a tad to few choices.
A lot of 3rd-party security PE tools makes it go off its hinges and so I can’t use it as there are no viruses or named trojans anywhere but in the program’s routines, only packed, possibly encrypted security tools.

In other words, have to use something else :iagree:

Accidentally? Wars have started over less. :stuck_out_tongue:

Clearly there’s some intellegent stuff happening behind the scenes. I’m not much of a developer, but I can’t for the life of me understand how one can “accidently” censor an entire country.
