Networking and Malware Scanners RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm asking this question here as our system is a Win 2008 R2 networked environment with XP and WIN7 clients.  Additionally, all users have roaming profiles and various folders (My Docs, App Data) are redirected through GPOs). I wonder what the implictions are for running free malware removal tools (especially interested in cautions/kudos for Malwarebytes) on clients in this kind of network environment?  I am cautious as one user who runs it may have an impact on other users who log into the machine as well as implications for network accessed data.  Perhaps I am paranoid?  Thanks in advace for any input.

  • Support for Windows XP is already ended and also this is old question but for the benefit of other users, it is recommended to upgrade to Windows 10 which has Windows Defender as free Anti-Malware installed.

    As for Windows 7 , you may consider System Center Endpoint Protection.

    You could manage Windows Defender in Windows 10 and System Center Endpoint Protection using System Center Configuration Manager.
