does an anti-virus not constitute as being an anti-malware?

They are all malicious so i seen no difference in this terminology.

You can run anti malware/spyware programs alongside Avast! (such as MBAM or Win Defender in 7)  but it is not advisable to run two antivirus program together  ie AVG with Avast!  or Microsoft Security Essentials with Avast!.  MSE is renamed Defender in Win 8 therefore is a different program to Defender in Win 7.

Thank you.
Im well aware that running 2 av softwares is ill advised,However it is the etymology im interested in.

Virus and malware.

Do these 2 terms not mean the same thing?

Of course they do,  however, I am sure you also understand the difference between the two types of programs referred to so there is no point in derailing this topic further.  :)

Deepscreen uses Dyna-Gen cloud based technology, making deepscreen much stronger and easier to use.

IMHO...Goodbye autosandbox and "hello" deepscreen.  8)

+1 As deepscreen is becoming a new defense weapon for Dyna-Gen cloud based technology, making deepscreen much stronger and easier to use.  ;)
Unfortunately it also gets things supremely wrong as it has classed the official facebook app for windows 8.1 as a virus, and I can't even take it out of the virus chest so it's unlikely to be usable for good.

With everything else that has gone wrong since I upgraded to avast 2014 and then windows 8.1, I'm feeling that I should never have installed avast 8 on my laptop and stuck with windows defender even with all the problems I've had with that.

Hi, I installed avast internet security, firewall does not work, an error firewall is disabled and does not turn on. Installed on a clean windows 8.1 operating system, what could be wrong? Thank you for your help.

would you believe it, avast 2014 as started blocking  ipv6 teredo now, working yesterday fine, ive uninstalled, wiped all avast entries, installed again, still blocks teredo ipv6 when firewall is on, also, when using secureline it completely disables teredo, never used to with previous version, I could still use it.Thisis really peeing me off, reinstalling/repairing and nothing comes it. Does anyone know what rules to add so teredo ipv6 will work without having to turn firewall off and on first. Don't understand why its just started blocking it though, the rules must of been there before.
