    I am using Kaspersky on a trial period and I am not sure whether to keep it or not as it dosen't seem to pick up the problems that I am having.Last week I also did an online scan with Panda which picked up 3 problems.Straight after I ran kaspersky and nothing was found.I submitted hjt log to this forum and with your help managed to get rid of them.Again today I ran another online scan called Pestscan and it has found 7 problems,and told me exactly where they were , again I ran Kaspersky and it has found nothing.Can someone advise me what to do please,as the trial period is coming to an end and I was thinking about subscribing but now I am unsure.

    Kaspersky and panda will find slightly different things! Kaspersky isn't picking anything up as you are clean! Panda is probably picking up some adaware and old reg entries!

    what exactly is Panda finding?

    Of the two, kaspersky is better. You may also consider trying Trend micro and Nod32 as trials, but they will not find much or anything at the moment as I have helped to clean you up, and that's what you want, all your scans coming up clean!

    The problems were all in the registry local ,current and classes.Does that suggest old ones that are no longer a threat?Hope so, as cannot stop doing scans.

    yes, Panda reports old reg entries pertaining to adaware etc, most of it can be ignored, this is why Kaspersky and others don't report it, because it's not a threat!
