Within the last three days two top rated security software programs have malfunctioned.
Yesterday [or the day before] Malwarebytes gave an update that crashed it and caused high and disabling CPU usage all over - Hundreds of users were
writing in to find out what was going on - They finally fixed it - The easy way to fix it personally was to uninstall and reinstall it.
They said it was a mistake
A mistake from one ot the leading malware security firms - Hard to believe.
Malwarebytes premium I pay for - But I use a free anti-virus; Was using Avast- today they kept prompting me to try 'system speedup' - supposedly a
a cleaning tool.
So I did - And it erased all of my bookmarks for the last month
I immediaely uninstalled it as the 'restore point' apparently wasn't availabbe for the free users - The cynic in me tells me that was the whole
idea to force purchase of a pay for version.
I uninstalled Avast completely and decided to try ZoneAlarm free version as it has been arounded for many years.
Is ZoneAlarm free still recommended?
And what about the other software malfunctions - Coincidence or are hackers causing it ???

Indeed... those back doors were likely done with the best, "patriotic" intentions ...forgetting that power changes hands and some day it is inevitable that "evil" would get it, and since computers rapidly grew and are now intricately entwined with the world, someone with the correct info could do most anything.
Scary stuff and quite a corner to be backed into.
Check out all the Anti-Virus companies. Where are they from? Are there some from other countries? If so, look up that countries laws. That neato anti-virus could easily be controlled by said government if they so wished. Your computer inherently trusts that antivirus you installed. You might want to know what "COULD" happen if things went t!ts up.
