but its like EEdis said earlier, its all pros/cons. if you want to continue to engage in all these debates and worry about viruses and malware and are willing to waste time and energy on this worry, for the benefit of installing programs faster, then go for it
Do files keep the header?
It's not laziness, it's method. Everyone has their own method to their madness. Take me and my wife for example, we both do the same action but differently. Even though there are things she pointed out to me that are faster and more convenient than the way I do it and vice versa, we choose not to change because that's the way we've been doing it. I click File>Save, then close. She just closes and hit enter to save a file. I middle click to open in a new tab, she right clicks and opens in a new tab. We both have an easier method but I don't plan on changing my methods. Nobody wants to change nor do they like change. Other's call them dumb, stupid, ignorant, for doing things the way they do it, whereas that person is saying the same thing about you.
It's opinionated, people. No one's being lazy, no one's being ignorant of the possibility, we choose to do our method and choose not to conform to other's more convenient method as our method is more convenient to our own mind.
That is the same reason why religion and politics are the two worse subjects to discuss with someone.
I really do understand where you are coming from, but when it comes to security, isn't it better to change to stay safe.
After all, if it became apparent that the lock you had on your front door was faulty, and you needed to change to a lock that worked differently, wouldn't you change it? Yes, because anyone can walk into your home otherwise.
If you leave the damaged lock on your computer (or no lock) any hacker is free to virtually browse around your computer, so why not change that lock?
I love my wife, my life, my atomic-match; for giving me the greatest gift a man could ask for, such a perfect and beautiful little girl.
You probably won't get anywhere with my IP, I'm sitting behind the American Express firewall!
i think this gives a good insight of which virus protection software for windows actually catches malware found in the wild and which doesnt. ofc this is not representative for all software as each has its own advantages and disadvantages, but nevertheless its interesting to see.
edit: i just seen, that panda was in the state checking. for the record: panda didnt found it either.
here's alink to virustotal.com results which incorporates more scanner engines.
here's the link to jotti.org scanresult
edit III: there is a urlcheck from VT which can be viewed here. this also indicates which software may help u in preventing disasters
