I don't shut down my computer much for reasons best left unexplained. The other day, though, I logged off for the first time in several months. When I logged back on I got a message that my ROP hasn't been used in 30 days. Now I can't get it working. It tells me I need to access the Internet from a Rogers Network. No idea what that means.
I know there was a very simple solution that I saw here or on the previous forum. Can't remember what it was. Any ideas?
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
You would be much better off with one of the free programs available on-line like AVG, Avast, or Microsoft Security Essentials!
As other posters have expressed, the ROP is weak and can be self replaced by better FREE third party suppliers. Keyword searches on a search engine will bring up myriad of viable resorces with far better effective protection than something that Rogers offers just in order to sound more attractive in their marketing materials.
Who'd want to use anything by AVG.
AVG bricked a few thousand machines with Vista/Win7 64bit OS's back in December by wiping out a file thats required to boot the machine.
I don't consider it safe to use. Also, its track record with zero-day infection detections is abysmal.
Microsoft Security Essentials is just about the best free antivirus there is right now for detection of zero-day infections.
People will have various opinions about anti-virus software, but I do know that AVG is an anti-virus program, not a firewall and it will scan your computer. Your statement is incorrect RogersHemal!
AVG is actually very highly rated according to CNET.
Like RespectPlease stated, it is an anti-virus program and includes spyware. I also know that Avast is highly rated and so is Microsoft Security Essentials. I would never trust my computer again with ROP!
