What is realtime transmission?
What i disable at first. Upload of unknown files.
There is a point that is discussable, for example that paid antivirus is tending to be surrounded by "ZOMG new threats, buy now!" reports. That is a big suspicious spot.
But when i speak about antivirus, i speak about the function.
Without this function, a basic layer is missing.
It decreases the likeliness of getting an infected file on your computer. One of the KNOWN and AVAILABLE codes for all kind of criminals. These (95)% of malware is a good start to avoid at all.
The other (5)% on a daily basis is
a) added to the base later
b) in the wild for short
c) avoidable by reasonable security and carefullness
So, if you do it right, you have
1) benefit of antivirus function
2) no infection
3) a very small likeliness of having malware on your computer over time (saved files, as we avoid infections)
The point is, antivirus is as good as before. But the advertised status is (rightfully) changed.
You cant call antivirus fraud. Because its a function.
Advertising can be misleading.
