Trend antivirus not updating
The Symantec episodes were a sad reminder of the woeful state of the antivirus industry.And now the beleaguered antivirus industry is back in the spotlight once again.
So i've just built a new computer and have installed kaspersky internet security, but when i try to do a database update it goes to 2% complete and doesn't go any further. Kaspersky is nowadays the best internet security software on the market. Even then, reality is Norton is just as good if not any superior to Kaspersky and quite honestly I would blindly trust Norton Security, Mc Afee, Trend Micro, F-Secure kind of more established organisation over some 3rd party so called internet security suit bullshit like Kaspersky, Avast, Eset or Bit Defender garbage etc.
I've tried looking for an answer, but i can't find one, so hopefully someone here knows what is happening? and yes, you shouldn't use two internet security software at the same time. I wouldn't advice you to use Norton or any free internet security software. And just for the record I have used both Norton and Kaspersky and this whole high resource utilization thing about Norton is an utter nonsense since I have hardly noticed any difference with the performance from start up to the running of multiple process smoothly.
What I like to do is that I add a particular folder like my download folder or the folder where I am using a crack file to the exclusion rule be it any security suite that I use.
Though most of the crack or patch never get false positives by Norton from what I have experienced yet you tell that by never using any of their recent products.
Unless I am some sort of kaspersky fanboy I will never be too inclined to the idea of using Kaspersky over Norton.
