Wheres the Protection against the Bugs , surely you do have it. i have had reports of Bugs on my PC from the site and it was stopped from executing such Parasites or Trojans etc etc etc. Don`t underestimate that everyone on Nexus is Genuine , i knew a few that had intrusions in there Pictures that would infest the PC if it was downloaded and viewed also their on Twitter etc etc etc.
Always scan anything you download even if it says its safe. i have mine working live to Detect and Destroy and intrusions that deem threatening.
Never use freebies its not enough, you need the Professional Versions.
I've always loved when people said, "you're crazy to pay for anti virus! It's all a scam! Common sense, malwarebytes, and defender is all you need" - meanwhile, you can find reddit threads, random boards, etc,.. all about people who are like this and get infected. Honestly, just bite the bullet y'all and find yourself an anti virus program from a professional company.
it is not crazy to pay for antivirus but it is reckless to believe you have a better protection because you pay for it. antvirus programs are just the same as a trojan but the "good ones" and they claim that they protect. and you have to trust that this is correct. sometimes it is, sometimes it is not. i only trust what i see and how programs try to connect over the network. so be sure to have control over your network connections and your firewall and don't allow any trojan, including an antivirus, to do things you do not understand or you can not comprehend. i've never had a problem since i control my network traffic and my firewall settings.
