Norton 360 lets Virus In??

Hi all,

Here is a little word of warning, beware of Norton 360 for protecting against Viruses and Spyware. I have a client who has always used Symantec products and the other night he called me over, his pc was completely unresponsive, pop ups all over the place, email deleting itself, basically the pc was in a mess. So then, Esets NOD32 it was, I ran the online scanner eset provide, it picked up 16 malware instances that Norton 360 had ”missed”. After cleaning the infections, I rebooted his pc and all was well, the funny thing is he has stayed with Norton 360 – I am baffled well and truely.

The big thing here is that most of the BIG name, well known anti virus solutions just do not work anymore, sure, they protect from the well known malware but thats about it.

If you want the best security for your pcs or even mail servers then I highly recommend Eset NOD32. It really does find things the other ”big” ones miss.

Cheers John

Samsung Galaxy S2 Slow Wi-Fi?

Samsung Galaxy S2 – Slow WiFi – Slow Wireless (Wi-Fi)

I have just purchased my Samsung Galaxy S2 Android phone, it is an update from my HTC Desire. I must say this is a truely awesome device. From the moment you open the box you just can’t put it down. I did notice however that the Wi-Fi indicator was only showing one bar where as my Desire always showed full strength in the house.

After trawling the web there are quite a few reports of the above issue, so, I decided to run some in-depth test, my final thoughts are that there is not anything wrong with the actual speed throughput over WLAN it seems to be that the onscreen indicator is reporting the wrong strength.

When I ran the test throughout the house the HTC & the Samsung were pulling through the same data rates even though the HTC was showing full signal strength and the Samsung Galaxy S2 was only showing one bar.

I have sent in an email to Samsung reporting my findings so lets see if it gets fixed in a future update.
