[QUOTE=DrageMester;2773216]I’m pretty sure that, according to textbook definition, you are.
A while ago I got an infection myself. I had been using a freeware disk defragmenter for years without problems. I had also disabled automatic updates. But one day the software updated itself automatically anyway and hijacked my homepage and some other things.
Any software company you trust today could be taken over by evil malware distributors, or whatever they like to call themselves, and you could be infected by no fault of your own.
Don’t think you are immune to the dangers of the internet.
BTW it was IOBit Smart Defrag, and I’m never using any of their software ever again.[/QUOTE]
I custom software install that way one catch stealth ware from installing and you get only the software you want and I also disable software updates except Windows and MSE updates. That’s the problem we like to pigeon hole people but when it doesn’t match how were suppose to think. If I want a software update I will go and check the site myself and if I feel the update is legit then I will download to install later.
