When Antivirus Software Fails You: How to Spot (and Defeat!) a Real Malware Attack

Kevin R. Smith
Co-Editor



It isn't every day you get to see what a real Trojan attack looks like.

When you do, there's seldom time to even take screenshots: you just want to get the heck out of Dodge.

But, this time, in putting together material for our upcoming free workshop when I happened across a real attack I was able to record it.

If you've ever wondered what an attack looks like, here's your chance to see one.

Here's the best/worst part: nothing stopped it.

  • Not our Internet Security Software.
  • Not any of our browsers' built-in malware protection
  • Not even Windows 10 built-in security.

See for yourself how it happened and what you can do to stop it.

 



Be the first to know about
our upcoming free workshop!

We'll cover problems like this, plus free, easy-to-do PC optimization, and other useful, real-world PC help topics.

I promise you, it'll be some of the
best, most useful stuff you'll ever see.
