The best one is already installed...nothing. You really don't need one on Linux.

You're not going to find many virus infections in this forum.

The ones you'll find are false positives or just a misunderstanding like this recent post

Re: Is it safe to change kernels?

If you're adventurous you certainly can try a newer version.

The older kernel version will remain intact so if you do experience a problem you can always boot back to 4.15.0-45 so the risk is minimal.

Re: crontab jobs don't execute

It can't find /home/myuser/myuser_Documents_Backup.sh

Are you sure of the name ls -lh /home/myuser/myuser_Documents_Backup.sh

Remove /bin/bash so it's just /home/myuser/Full_Backup_Systems_V1.sh

Is the script executable :?:

Re: Revert fstab without live cd

You don't have an X session so use nano /etc/fstab

When done ctl-o to save it and ctl-x to exit.

Re: how to clean redirector.gvt1.com virus

I don't use those applications and I see that pi-hole will take some time to install and setup.

The only thing I can say here is if you removed the .mozilla/ folder that should have cleared all FF local storage.

I'll try looking into pi-hole over the next few days and see what kind of results I get.

Hello JT Image

Welcome to Linux Mint and the Linux Mint forum :)

The message is pretty much self explanatory - you have a repo defined twice.

Paste back the results of inxi -r

Re: Booting from usb

You have to start tapping the proper function key before the BIOS transfers control to the disk.

Not all computer manufacturers use the same key e.g., my laptop is F2 and a desktop is F10

Re: How to locate program files, how to get proper program name?

locate is quick, but it's updated once a day so if you just installed something it won't show unless you sudo updatedb first. Also all programs are going to be in a folder with bin in the name so to limit the list locate appname|grep bin If you know the application name like xed then which xed will ...

Re: Home directory

Yes, that can be done, but the partition cannot be NTFS.

It should be formatted ext4 which is IMHO the most stable linux filesystem
