I use symantec antivirus corporate edition, and while it is (imho) a great anti-virus, its liveupdate definitions are only posted every few days. I do know that symantec posts daily updates (manually downloadable executables). What I would like is an app that will load
and scan for the executable link, download the file, run it, and delete the file, all automatically. Is this possible? Sounds like a perfect AHK script Perhaps even have an option to configure how often (since symantec posts multiple updates per day).
I don't think the symantec antivirus corporate edition is good enough for your security. Back in my old university, around 80% of all students used it since it was a legal free download from the school website, and it updates itself daily and automatically from fast intranet school servers. However there were always many complains about the anti-virus - it simply didn't provide any effective protection in many many virus cases, the viruses just went through the shield and you wouldn't suspect it until you got Ad/porn pop-ups, a hijacked browser or BSOD, etc.
Fortunately, the school board decided to provide Kaspersky a couple of months ago, AFAIK.
I always volunteer to help virus victims if I can, and I did helped a lot of people (mostly my school mates), and from my experience, I'd prefer to say if you are using a Symantec anti-virus product and are contented with it - please think twice, especially if you just have a Symantec anti-virus working without any anti-spyware program.
More than 95% of the computers that had symantec antivirus corporate edition installed (and mostly updated) that I have helped were infected by 10+ bad stuff (be it a virus, a trojan or spyware, etc. Unwanted Cookies NOT included)The anti-virus program won't give you a warning message never means your system is safe.
I used to use Mcafee Antivirus Enterprise 8.0i + Anti-Spyware Module 8.0 alone and the week before last I was infected by Malwarepipe (the most nasty malware I have ever got) and other 395 spyware (as reported). All Mcafee told me was that system infected by Puper (trojan) and nothing else. My Ad-aware SE free anti-spyware only reported a dozen cookies after a full system-scan.
And their definitions were ALL up-to-the-minute!
I tried Spyware Doctor 3.8 after that and it reported 396 spyware and I instantly paid the company to get rid of all these nasty stuff for me.
Before that I suffered from fake "critical system error" and "malware infection detected" pop-ups every 10 seconds and there were Ad/Porn pop-ups every 10 minutes or so. I couldn't even bring my laptop to school for that reason.
I'm currently with Mcafee Antivirus Enterprise 8.0i + Anti-Spyware Module 8.0 and Spyware Doctor 3.8
