Mox Malware. /sigh
False. Positive.
</on topic>
Actually Nortons/Symantec scored top marks this last year for malware identification, second to webroot. It did however take #1 for malware removal.

I've used both and as webroot runs 100000000x faster ( 4mb footprint ) i go with webroot.

Oh and the mox parser doesn't trigger anything for webroot.

Which is why such a basic tool should be provided and distributed from BioWare. Then you can't accuse someone of cheating and they don't get a keylogger.

I've administrated 500 systems before, using SCCM and various other enterprise client management applications.

SEP was one of the biggest resource hogs of all the software we ran and any computer that had less than 2GB always had resource issues during scan times with SEP.

Even though it's a false positive, this right here is why a diligent developer provides support for these types of addons in their UI.

In a home environment this all has to be done by a single system and the slow down is not worth it
Just for my own curiosity I looked up some reviews for anti virus software and noticed that many of the programs you guys mentioned are rated higher. Reviews though can be biased. There were dozens of options to choose from. However I also found a recent article on MSNBC about some super virus and the expert the media went with to identify it was from the company that develops the software I am using. He was not from any of the companies that develop that other software. You can look up the article if you like. I don't have the link, but it was posted just the other day.

I am sure many of you have done your own research on those other programs, but I don't have to. I have an expert in the family. I'll stick with the advice of my uncle on this over anything I read on these forums. He was building computers before anyone owned personal computers and working in the industry longer than most of you have been alive. He is not a typical computer geek. He is a life long super geek that has been trusted by huge corporations and the government to repair and maintain multi million dollar computer equipment for the past thirty years. I trust him more than you. Sorry.
Anything that is done repetitively can be done by a computer. That is why right brained people will eventually rule the world.

By who? PCMag?

Here are some other un-authoritative reviews:
KAV7 rates first.
KAV Rates second and norton isn't even on the list!
KAV rates 3rd.

Now, on to something with a little more authority:

Virus Bulletin
VB100 Graph
VB100 Awards List
Virus Bulletin's profile for Norton
Virus Bulletin's profile for Eset
Virus Bulletin's profile for Kaspersky

Av-Comparatives
KAV Earns "Product of the Year"

West Coast Labs has a great many product tests of the leading AV Software on the market today as well. Potential buyers may want to read through some of their findings.

Lastly, lest we not forget that it was Kaspersky who discovered and concluded the origin of both Stuxnet as well as the new Flame virus. *Looks around for Norton*

My personal top 5 (in no particular order):
1.) Kaspersky
2.) Eset
3.) Avira
4.) Bitdefender
5.) Webroot

The best virus protection you can get is to stop running windows.

Tragically , SWTOR is a windows only game ...

download firefox and lock down your internet explorer so bad that if it ever accidently opens it won't even be allowed to fart , thats all I can say.
Survey says : need more story....but we already have more story than anyone else ! ... too bad. need more story.

Its unlikely that its malware, but this points out a valid potential problem with requiring third party applications to gather the data or for any purpose. If BW added a ingame damage meter, visible combat log you wouldn't have to use thirdparty applications.
