Fidcal Posted March 22, 2010 Report Share Posted March 22, 2010 I never give anti-virus software authority to automatically deal with what it thinks are viruses. I always configure to get a report and then I decide what to do with it. On this PC I installed Antivir which promptly starting telling me my own programs (ones I had written myself) were trojans. I even re-compiled one and still it persisted. I reduced its so-called heuristics. If I given it freedom to do what it wanted it would have deleted several of my own programs. If you know how to take care with your computer, avoid graphic emails, internet explorer, and dodgy websites then modern anti-virus software is actually more agressive, intrusive, more bloody trouble in fact, than viruses themselves.
