How to Remove Malware Professional 2010 | Malware Professional 2010 Removal Guide

Wednesday, November 25th, 2009

Malware Professional 2010 is a rogue security application. It is not a trusted malware removal utility and I hope users won’t be fooled by their claims of problem on their system that it claims only can be removed if you pay for their software. Unfortunately many users may be tricked into getting this software on [...]

How to Remove Enterprise Suite | Enterprise Suite Removal Guide

Sunday, November 15th, 2009

Enterprise Suite is a rogue antivirus application that is a successor to Windows Enterprise Suite. Enterprise Suite is usually installed without permission on a machine and displays numerous fake scans and popups claiming that the system is infected with multiple viruses.

Security Tool is the latest rogue antivirus application in the family which includes Total Security 2009 (read my how to remove Total Security 2009 guide if necessary.)

How to Remove SecurityFighter | Security Fighter Removal

Thursday, September 24th, 2009

SecurityFighter is making the rounds as yet another rogue security application. It installs itself via trojans and web popups and creates files that it then claims are viral and need to be cleaned out for your computer to be safe. Of course, they never can do that without you first paying for the program. This [...]

Opera Software has released an update to the Opera web browser. The update addresses 2 security flaws. One flaw was related to the FlashPlayer plugin, the other was a code execution bug and affected Unix or Linux users.

Free personal firewalls for windows will be a bit scarcer

Saturday, November 26th, 2005

It’s too bad that Symantec will be killing off a free personal firewall. I guess they didn’t like supporting competition for their (large) Internet Security with included firewall… About three months ago, Symantec bought Sygate who made a Sygate Pro and Sygate free personal firewall.
