  1. I found this thing called ThreatFire supposed to protect against malware, adware, and lots of other stuff. But the main thing it's supposed to do is boost the effectiveness
    of whatever antivirus your using Supposedly, if your AV is taking care of 30% of the Virus problems ThreatFire will bring it up to 50%
    Now I know that my Avast takes care of a heck of a lot more than 30%.. I was hoping ThreatFide woud catch a few extras.
    So, please, let me know. Good, Bad, Safe, Dangerous, or, Worthless?

    Thanks Ray

    Have used Windows 7 here since the first week it went on sale. For security I have only used Microsoft security essentials + Threatfire, and the Windows firewall.
    Threatfire does an update just about every day, I get a bubble notification lower-right of screen, about 3 mins after connecting to 'net, it says "Automatic updates complete". Then about every month, a screen shows with the total amount of files that were scanned, and threats detected.
    So far on this pc I have had no trouble at all, seems to work well, and I don't intend to change to anything else.
