I know some AV programs work better than others with CH trainers, I'm just wondering what everyone else is using and what kind of luck they have. Anyone got a recommendation on a good AV program that'll let me exclude the directory where i keep my CH downloads from scans?
- Just an AV, no shredder, no parent control, no wallet, no options that bloat the software with unwanted tools
- Respects your whitelist
- Asks about actions (deleting files, ignore them)
- No system slow downs, runs pretty stable
- Made in Germany
I'm using it for years now. It's one of the few AVs left that let you have control over the actions. BitDefender for example I was never able to exclude my trainers even when I turned everything off it still deletes files and not even put them in quarantine so if I wouldn't have made a backup, I would have lost the files forever.
But I don't think AVs are important nowadays as the way of attacks are changing. Instead of virus and trojans we now have ransomware which encrypts your files or social engineering that steals your information by asking you for it. Nearly all AVs cannot protect you when it comes to that. So sticking to Windows Defender is a solution too if you just need basic (virus/trojan) protection.
Windows Defender (or Microsoft Security Essentials for Widows 7) is more reliable than all/any commercial malware killers. The maker's supposed to know better how to defend itself.
All monetized products will add useless stuff to convince the buyers that they would miss important protection(s), while at the same time having incomplete/outdated database(s)
I for myself use GData AV as well as Bitdefender AV. - And since i got some trouble with GData's accounting i buy my licences on e.g. ebay which is a lot cheaper.
Nevertheless: The best AV is always sitting in front of the keyboard.

but got to stay alert if u try to download something u need to check it first
i run my pc for 2 years without anti virus and for some reason my pc become faste than when i have anti virus. After i notice that stuff i run my pc without anti virus cuz is faster
Even though i really think it gives a false sense of security, I don't think any bad ass hacker specifically would target me for hacking while the AV is turned of for the gaming session, and make it explode in a wall of fire and shrapnel
