Bitdefender

Post by Mystery_Girl » Thu Feb 07, 2019 6:05 am

I am determined to try another antivirus programme so I am using the free 30 day version of Bitdefender. Eset continues to ping now an again telling me my computer is unprotected. *rolls eyes*

I was wondering what the worst case scenario is of me having both these together? I might just take my laptop to the shop around the corner and ask the guys there to sort it out for me (remove eset).

"ping" as in sending emails?

Some anti-virus programs don't really like other similar application(s) running and that could cause the computer to "misbehave" (as in running slow, not reacting to certain commands etc.)

Now, assuming that you have Windows 10 on that laptop, these instructions to uninstall from Eset Nod 32 don't look too complicated: https://support.eset.com/kb5547/

FWIW, I have kept and still keep my Windows 7 computers clean by using MSE (Microsoft security essentials) together with Malwarebytes Premium and my Windows 10 boxes with the (built-in) Windows Defender which is basically MSE for Windows 10 and Malwarebytes Premium.
Of course it all starts with knowing where not to go and on what not to click (any email attachment, any link that is not the complete url).
