How to Help Rid Your Computer of Malware and Viruses for Free


This tip will assist you in removing malware and viruses from your computer for free. The main thing to remember is that spyware and viruses are two different things. A computer virus is a computer program that can copy itself and infect a computer. Malware, short for malicious software, is programming (code, scripts, active content, and other software) designed to disrupt or deny operation, gather information that leads to loss of privacy or exploitation, gain unauthorized access to system resources, and other abusive behavior. The expression is a general term used by computer professionals to mean a variety of forms of hostile, intrusive, or
annoying software or program code. It is this type of program that gives you all those annoying pop-ups and will take you to web pages you don't want to go to.It's not uncommon these days for malware to blast right through a virus scanner, after all a virus scanner is looking for viruses, not malware. Below is a screenshot of an actual malware program masquerading as a virus scanner.

There are two excellent and FREE products that are very effective at removing viruses and malware when used together. The first is called Malware Bytes and it can be downloaded free from Download.com. The second is called CCleaner which will basically remove all the un-necessary cookies from your computer possibly left there by the malware program itself, It can also be downloaded at Download.com
They may not always work 100% because the malware programmers are always 1 step ahead of the anti-malware programmers and it may be the case that your computer has so many infections that it may be quicker and easier to back up your data and reinstall your operating system.

CCleaner Review http://download.cnet.com/ccleaner/?tag=mncol;1
CCleaner Download Link. http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download/standard

Download both programs and run them, Malware Bytes will tell you how many infected objects found if any, it will give you the option of removing them and of course you would want to. It will require a reboot. After that I would run CCleaner to remove any cookies left by the malware / virus. You may want to run CCleaner before you reboot after the Malware Bytes scan has finished.

NOTE: some viruses / malware won't allow you to connect to the internet, in that case you will need to download the programs from an uninfected PC that is able to connect to the internet and save them on a USB drive then take them to the infected PC and install them from the USB drive.

NOTE: You may have to run the virus scan in safe mode by pressing F8 before windows starts up and then choosing "safe mode"

I have this Think Point (says its a Windows Program) security program that came from nowhere and it must be a trojan or virus of some type and I can't remove it. It executes on startup and begins to do a...


To resolve the think point virus you will need to hit Ctrl, Alt, and Del at the same time. Then go to the task manager on your screen. When the task manager opens up, click processes. Find the file that is named hotfix.exe and end it. After ending it click back on applications in the task manager and click new task. Type in explorer.exe and your start menu and icons should start to popup. Download Malware bytes from download.com, run the malware full scan, and remove once complete. It will have you reboot the computer and your issue should be resolved.
Thanks,
Randall

I have a virus and stmanteec antivirus notification keeps popping up on my screen: What can I do??? Help Scan type: Auto-Protect Scan Event: Threat Found! Threat: Trojan.Zlob File: ...


If you have a virus you can not delete or if your system will not boot up correctly and you suspect a virus is the problem, a recommended solution is to start your computer in safe mode and run a virus scan. By running your computer in safe mode, non-essential processes do not start and non-core components are disabled. In other words, only the minimum necessary programs will load. Tough to remove viruses, spyware and other malware usually have no chance to run and disrupt your system and can more easily be removed.
**To run a virus scan in safe mode, you must have active anti virus software installed on your computer.
To run a virus scan in safe mode, follow these steps:
  1. If your computer is on, shut it down
  2. Power on your computer
  3. Immediately after you power on your computer, repeatedly press the [F8] key (about once per second)
  4. In the Windows Advanced Options Menu screen, use the arrows to select Safe Mode and presss [Enter]
  5. Select your current operating system and press [Enter]
  6. Select the user you would like to login under (if applicable)
  7. When your system finishes booting, click the Start button on your task bar
  8. Move your cursor over All Programs and navigate to your anti virus program
  9. Click on your antiv virus program to run it and follow the anti virus program’s normal steps to run a virus scan
  10. After the virus scan is complete, Delete all detected viruses
  11. Close out of your anti virus software
  12. Restart your computer (it should start in normal mode)

Hello my problem is that my computer is running slow and it cach a virus but evrytime i want to log in the internet the antispyware keeps popping up and it makes me restart my computer over and over again...


Is the antispyware a program that you installed? Did you buy it or is ita freeware program? Or is it part of your virus control program? If so which program sdo you use?If you purchased it, go to the main icon on your desktop or under all programs and open the main console. Update the program and Try to run a scan. This should clean up the spyware on your computer. If it does, you need to do the same with your virus control unless they are part of the same program. Don't forget to update before you scan.

In the meantime, please get back to me with the name of the spyware program, your virus control program,your operating system and type of computer. If you cannot do the above, please let me know. Thank You.

AVG slowing computer


Spybot is an anti-spyware program, which shouldn't affect the anti-virus at all. The thing is, though, you can have as many anti-spyware programs as you want, but only one virus scanner. Otherwise, things get messed up. But As long as there are no Norton, McAfee, CA Antivirus, Kaspersky, or things like that on the computer, you should be fine. Also, check your scanning schedule to see if maybe it is running a virus scan every time you boot to Windows. That would cause things to slow down tremendously. And you can go to Start > All Programs > Startup and delete things you don't need running when you start Windows. If you want, you can delete everything in that menu without any real negative effect. Those things can be started manually if you need them to.

Please completley remove the norton security from my computer...trying to run something comcst says you need to do something to rmove it...please do asap ...thank you


Go into Control Panel, then Add/Remove Programs. Wait for the list of all programs to load up.

Go down through the list and look for Norton Internet Security. Remove it. It will take a very long time, sometimes 1/2 hour or more depending on speed of computer. Reboot the computer after it has been removed, especially if/when it asks you to reboot after the process.

After rebooting, go back into Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs. Look for Symantec or Norton's Live Update, remove that as well. Also remove any other Symantec/Norton Anti-Virus or Internet Security programs as well. Then reboot the computer again.

Your computer should be much, much faster now. So now you need a new Anti-Virus program...

I've found in my experience that Norton and McAfee do more damage to some computers than good, besides the fact that they are severely over-priced. I would NEVER install either Norton (Symantec) or McAfee on anyone's computer. Matter of fact, I just had to remove Norton 2008 from a lady's computer today, an old Dell 2400 because her system was too old and slow to run new Norton.

My suggestions for much better anti-virus would be...

- Kaspersky Anti-Virus (search for it on Google, etc)

- Trend Micro PC-Cillin Anti-Virus (search for it on Google, etc)

- AVG Free Anti-Virus at http://free.grisoft.com, they also have more elaborate versions with more protection for a cost.

I personally use AVG on my computers, and my family does as well. It's very effective and gets out viruses that even Norton cannot remove.
