Sorry,but Avast is a piece of junk!!!!
« on: October 17, 2010, 10:52:22 AM »
I was running an updated avast 5 free
i got a flash from a friend and when i inserted avast said it detected a win32/sality.NAR virus
just said DETECTED i thought it removed it.after 10 minutes my system restart and restart
I uninstall the program
use avira Rescue System(boot scan)and found 68 virus in drive d and 37 in other drives
Detected but did not PROCTECT my system
my sister's system also ruined getting a DAONOL Trojan while using an updated avast free
i will NEVER use this nice-looking but FAKE antivirus
NOD32 And AVIRA are far better
sorry,but please think more about using this product
thanks for reading

61 viruses?impossible.however you told that you had trojans on another pc
all of them was the copy of sality in system voule information and d:\windows and ...
that trojan(daonol)was in my sisters system 6 months ago and made her reinstall the window
avast didnt catch it
avira could not be installed
nod32 did install and removed it but the windows was not the thing it shoud be so the windows was reinstalled
i know no antivirus is perfect especially aganst new and unkown malwares,but the program should at least protect systems from well-known threats
all of you know SALITY,if your system is not secure agains this very known malware then do you really feel protected and FEEL FREE????!!!!

you've gotta be kidding. Avira pops up with a suggestion to upgrade to the Pro version on every db update. NOD... well, one day it told me that last upgrade was in year 1970, then it also has other bugs. Avast! is far better than NOD at detecting stuffs, Avira has good detection rates (but, uhm, false positives too), but is annoying as heck. So, choose yourself :D Also, no antivirus can detect/heal everything, so if Avast! fails, doesn't mean it's fake. If virus damaged system files, your system WILL likely reboot and stuff.

may be better with the Sality yes......but if Sality have invited 60 friends to the party! i guess it will not clean those as it is a specialised Sality cleaner
but you should absolutely run it

I still think this is a jobb for Essexboy....

If sality comes down as one of the known variants then Avast will stop it. If the payload file is a new variant, Avast may not detect it but it will pick up on the infector at work, and should block it. But it is beholden upon you to be cautious - if you are offered a USB with good programmes on it, scan it first with both Avast and MBAM, that should stop the great majority of nasty surprises   

I have just cleaned two systems from one location with Virut.  The one protected by Avast stopped the infection from spreading, all I had to do was locate and remove the trigger, job done.  The other system was using Norton and we had to reformat as it was too far gone, ove 400 files corrupted. So draw your own conclusions from that
