I earn a living as a Solaris SA, but am not very knowledgeable about Windows, especially on the desktop OS's. I've been booting my PC into a small Linux partition for use while waiting for the next step from Adam.
I've been running AVG8 up until now, and have had to disable it to run several ComboFix scans. AVG registry keys were among those I had to delete using HJT, too.
What is a good combination of protective tools to run on my PC? Is AVG8 still worth using after Adam gives me the all-clear, or are there better choices? Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware already found several infections that my AVG8 never caught.
