How to browse without antivirus and keep your computer safe

After browsing or even inserting an infected drive to your pc, do not shut down the system normally like clicking on start and clicking on shut down all you need do is just to hold down the on/off button till the pc offs.
the reason is that if you shut down normally, the system will save the current settings and some viruses will go and embed with some system file and this can affect the system.

shut down

Possible corrupt operating system. The cause of corrupt operating system is Windows file corrupted or virus infected Windows.

Solution corrupt Windows files:
1. START - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Recovery Options - System Restore (restore to the date when the OS is still normal)
2. START - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Recovery Options - System Image Recovery (restore using a backup system that you created)

Solution files corrupted due to virus infected windows
Update anti-virus and virus scan (if the virus is detected, the primary action = repair, secondary action = quarantine). Then repair the operating system with System Restore or System Recovery Options.
If the operating system infected with virus (virus infected not long ago), the best solution is to use System Restore. Restore to a date when the windows are still normal.

i have a virus, i am trying to restore the system, but when i click on this option it does not open....

Your system restore is probably infected as well, if you have a second computer in the house with a thumb drive tis is what you should do.
1. disconnect the satellite from the internet and disable your wireless adapter. go to another computer that is not infected and down load malwarebytes to a thumb drive you can download it here
2. reboot your computer in safe mode with networking and enable your network adapter
3. Insert the thumb drive with malwarebytes installer on it and drag the installer to the deskt top an intall after it installe it will ask you to run and update check yes on both, malwarebytes will now download the latest updates after it finishes start a quick scan, let it run and remove all the little monsters it finds then reboot your system normally and start a full scan with malwaybyes and let it run .
