Kaspersky not updating
Deathclutch calling everyone else a "fan boy" while he rambles on, and on, and on, and on, about Norton, multinational corporations, how all the tests are wrong, etc, etc. Have you seen a cop who shoots a man because he looked suspicious?
If you rename any file to "crack" or "patch" Norton deletes it. I also use Microsoft One Drive for some of my documents (not as backup but for syncronization of laptop and desktop).
However, it is not really random at all if you know the formula and only the 'creator' knows the number.
I do not ever use the computer for gaming purposes. -" Know that you will most likely never even encounter most of these so-called threats..." Well, that's what you think... But if I ever came across an issue where the file was quarantined, norton always provided with a restore option, so I don't see any harm done.
What I like to do is that I add a particular folder like my download folder or the folder where I am using a crack file to the exclusion rule be it any security suite that I use.
So i've just built a new computer and have installed kaspersky internet security, but when i try to do a database update it goes to 2% complete and doesn't go any further. Kaspersky is nowadays the best internet security software on the market. Even then, reality is Norton is just as good if not any superior to Kaspersky and quite honestly I would blindly trust Norton Security, Mc Afee, Trend Micro, F-Secure kind of more established organisation over some 3rd party so called internet security suit bullshit like Kaspersky, Avast, Eset or Bit Defender garbage etc.
