I woke up early this morning and I could not go back to sleep and my dreams/sleep was/were disturbed even while I tried to sleep, my social/generalized anxiety disorder and stress levels increased yesterday after getting a voice mail, and last night I found out what it was about and I started looking into finding a new free antivirus to recommend to people, and so all of this has been bothering me; and I still have not called back yet.
After not being able to go back to sleep I have been up trying to test 360 Total Security and see how it runs on its maximum security mode called Security where the Avira AntiVir and Bitdefender engines are enabled and files are scanned when they are accessed/opened, and so far I am impressed and I think that using it on a possibly infected computer will be a good experiment for this free antivirus to see how well it does; I have known about it since last year, but I have been waiting for more people to use and test it first because it is new to me and it is only the second Chinese anti-virus that I have ever known to get somewhat popular outside of China so I was trying to be cautious.
I can only remember part of one dream that involved using, testing, scanning, et cetera with the free 360 Total Security antivirus while Michael De Santa from the video game Grand Theft Auto V was acting/being depressed/gloomy/sad as music from the Only Lovers Left Alive soundtrack played in the background like the song Spooky Action From A Distance.
I remember 360 Total Security finding some unrecognized files that it wanted to upload for analysis and so those were uploaded, while waiting for the results it was mentioned that 360 Total Security can help with various computer issues but probably not with Michael’s gloominess, but it would try to help him anyway; and so it asked him what was bothering him.
Michael started talking about what was bothering him like he was talking to his therapist as the 360 Total Security antivirus listened and maybe gave some suggestions sometimes like a virtual assistant, music from the Only Lovers Left Alive soundtrack continued playing in the background, but I woke up early and I have been awake ever since.
I possibly have a new free anti-virus to recommend to people that meets some of my requirements: free, no registration needed, it is not trying to constantly sell you stuff, it looks nice and runs pretty well (though Firefox seems to be using a bit more of the CPU and RAM than usual at times, and so I am not sure if this is causing the problem or not), it is pretty easy to use, the default settings are pretty good (but for maximum security set the mode to Security, but it will probably slow down your computer more in this mode; and so a compromise would be to maybe only enable the Avira Antivir virus engine in real-time instead of Bitdefender and enable both of them for on-demand scanning), it installed quickly and easily, no annoying toolbars, it has browser protection, and it has some other extra features that can be helpful (it can scan for and patch Windows vulnerabilities, speed up start-up and network and computer by optimizing settings, remove unnecessary files to save space, and you can run files/programs in a sandbox isolated from the rest of your computer so that it/they can not infect you computer when using/testing them).
I will continue using/testing 360 Total Security on my computer to see how well it does, I also have been testing out
uBlock Ublock Origin for Firefox as a replacement for the Adblock Plus extension, and so far I am liking uBlock UBlock Origin better and my browser runs a bit smoother.
