For complete protection opt for Antivirus which has advanced technology such as auto sandboxing and default deny protection to have a super cool system protection.
Do you know any antivirus with auto sandboxing and deny protection ? OR you are mixing a firewall with antivirus ?

So here is the deal. There really is no Antivirus/Antimalware program ever created that protects you from 100% of the threats 100% of the time. This is just cold hard fact. For those that have a more dangerous web surfing habit this become noticeable more quickly.

What you can't do is figure since they don't protect you from EVERYTHING all of the time then there is no use to even bother. That is like walking and not driving your car anymore because the tread on the tires has worn 80%.

Almost all antivirus/antimalware programs will protect you from at least 80% of the threats out there. Better to be protected from most known threats than not be protected from any at all don't you think?

There might be some hidden viruses go for a good anti virus or if you are using windows then go for window defender, it will help in complete security.

Not really, cCleaner is closer to the "Disk Cleaner" utility in Windows. It cleans the computer of Temporary Files and a bit more.

JRT(Junk Removal Tool) is a utility that runs in the CMD(Command) or what many call the DOS prompt.

It first creates a System Restore Point then verifies that the restore point is valid. Troubled systems this first step often fails.

It runs a series of checks:

  • Checks Running Processes
  • Checks Startup Logon
  • Checks Startup Scheduled Tasks
  • Checks Services
  • Checks File System
  • Checks Browsers
  • Checks Shortcuts
Once completed it outputs a log showing everything it did.

The checks it makes are for known and suspicious files, folders, services, and tasks that Malware uses to infect a system. It is a bit more fine tuned and you will often find that JRT and ADWcleaner find and fix issues in browsers and Windows that standard Malware and Virus scanners do not find or can not fix.

Maybe a good way to put it is that these programs are like the difference between a Steak Knife and Scalpel.

You pc might already infected by it before you have installed the anti virus most anti virus have big problems in fighting virus which have been already infected another reason can be your anti virus has become compromised time to get a new one.
