Hello !

 

It seems strange it has to be paid for. But do check out malwarebytes.

@giganerd thanks for the Link  but most of them were talking about anti virus programs and that i have 

 

@LZ1  why is it strange ? if you surf as much as I do and try out new software you will see that the paid software will pay off

Either you don't understand us when we tell you anti-virus is the same as anti-malware, or you need to clarify what you mean by those two words. Otherwise, we will never be able to help you.

ClamWin if you use Windows. Couple that with Clam Sentinel.

http://www.clamwin.com/

http://clamsentinel.sourceforge.net/

 

And if you use a better and far more secure OS like any of a thousand varieties of Linux or Unix, you need not even think of these malware problems. But there is still ClamAV there. Get it through your package manager for you build of Linux/Unix.

 

And for the few wondering why I suggest this AV? Frankly 99% of AV out there is its own form of malware. Clam is different in that it has no premium version, never asks you for login information, and never even has the possibility for you to pay one single (insert smallest unit of your currency here.)

 

All commercial AV will flag "cracked" executable as malware even when they are clean. Not Clam. Clam only flags real malware as malware.

 

And before we derail entirely, "cracked" executables are a good thing. I buy my games, but sometimes they do not work. Stupid DRM is what I presume is the problem first. So I change out the executable for a clean one and most of the time it works.

 

And for the Windows people, Clamwin is a passive program. You use it only when you need it. It does not feature any bloated mess of a background scanner, and does not dare to try to prevent you from doing anything. Clam Sentinel is a third party background scanner for the people that want that.


Debugging is at least twice as hard as writing the program in the first place.

So if you write your code as clever as you can possibly make it, then by definition you are not smart enough to debug it.

Best way to stay clean is using VMs and sandbox envireonments, I browse a lot too and test a lot of software and the sort, also never heard of clamwin but what you said sounds interesting.

I have malwarebytes anti exploit premium running all the time. 

Got it cheap. No idea if it does anything good

There can be a multitude of reasons why certain engines flag an EXE as malware even if it's not. Different detection algorithms and different configurations lead to different results. Some engines look at signatures, some consult some form of database, some use primarily heuristic analysis, and some use a combination of these. Always keep in mind, just because one software does not flag a file as malicious does not mean it's clean.

You are Right on this ,,   I did not know that antivirus is the same as anti-malware  sorry forgive a newbee

I have only a patchy knowledge of serious info security, but as well as running an antivirus (AVG paid) I also run a different approach to malware protection which Microsoft supplies free for their "enterprise clients". Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit.

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/jj653751

"EMET anticipates the most common actions and techniques adversaries might use in compromising a computer, and helps protect by diverting, terminating, blocking, and invalidating those actions and techniques."

It seems to slow program loading, but otherwise does not seem to cause problems on W7 on a medium power laptop (E530).

@Firass22 "on windows 10  or windows 7"

Windows 7 Home Premium with SP1 and all MS critical updates, OEM from Lenovo.

You now have a lot to read up on. The EMET support pages seem to show a more professional engineering group in MS than the usual marketing fog; and they have access to the internals of program loading, memory management, exception handling etc; and need to maintain credibility with large enterprise customers. The EMET techniques make sense to a now retired 70s/80s/90s ASM/C/C++/etc programmer, but I have not googled for negative assessments etc. Only additional to other security measures.

With W10, I would consider upgrading from Home to Professional for "mission critical security". I have just been offered another laptop and am considering running Mint/Ubuntu Linux with "internet exposed" software such as web browser and bittorrent and maybe MS in VM, with XWindows to this "core system" and just transfer data payloads. But maybe can't be bothered unless something bad happens.

@serenacat 

 

Wonderful  I installed it  and downloaded the user guide 

 

Just a quick  Heads up  

You know how every one complains about RuntimeBroker.exe

 

and why is it running ,  Yes  there is many ways to make it stop using CPU but you cant kill it ..  It will always be there 

 

With EMET   It killed it down WOW  very nice tool  its not even showing up any more in task-manager 

 

well many thanks to you ,,  i will have need  an hour or 2 to practice with this EMET 

 

thank you so much

https://www.virustotal.com/ <- upload it there and see if it really is bad.

 

Besides, you seem to have searched but I wonder how you could overlook reports about this EXE keeping your CPU busy on Windows 10. I linked you a german article, solution inside. Try it out.
