Just remember that any free software could carry some sort of risk or catch but most big names downloaded from reputable sites are safe.
Try and ask friends and family what are they using and read online virus forums.

Never download anything free from window pop ups claiming you already have millions of malware,spyware..etc..

Depending on which one you have, Yes it is. I tend to use atleast 2. You can go to places like Cnet.com, Tucows.com, Zdnet.com, and there are other download sites, just make sure you pay attention to the ratings and other peoples feedbackabout the product.

Yes if you downloaded from a reputable software company. Avast, AVG, & Avira, are all safe and very effective. However there is a malicious copy-cat of Avast out there. What did you download?

How do I find a safe free anti virus download? is "AVG Free Safe" ?


Type "best free anti-virus of 2014" into your search engine. You will be presented with a variety of choices and lists by those who have reviewed the available free anti-viruses and how they are rated. Good websites to look for include 'bleeping computer', 'pc magazine' and 'cnet'. All of these will have what you are looking for. If you would like a personal recommendation, I would suggest you download 'bitdefender' or 'panda'. Avg Free Safe is a suitable anti-virus but be sure to download it from AVG itself and not through any third party. Also, there is a website named 'mostiwant' and they have recommended free computer security downloads with direct download links. Try there first and look for the free 6 month trial of Norton and install that as Norton is in the top 3 best anti-virus category. That's the one I use.

How to delete all the viruses from a dell laptop inspiron 15-3521


Start in SAFE MODE with NETWORKING (Click F8 when booting) and then go online to malwarebytes.org. Download their FREE application, update it and run a full scan. DO NOT enable the trial mode. Delete everything that Malwarebytes finds. Reboot into safe mode with networking again (F8) and go online to superantispyware.com and download their free program too - update and run a full scan in rescue mode. Delete everything it finds.

Reboot and run your virus scanner to see if anything is left on the hard drive. If you do not have a virus scanner, boot into safe mode with networking and download a free one - PANDA, AVG, COMODO, or whatever you prefer. Install it, update it and run a full scan.

Reboot.

Infected with virus, how to remove


Thank you for using FixYa

The best way to remove virus from your computer is to restart and load windows in safe mode

Restart PC, press the F8 key and select safe mode

login to the computer and run an anti virus on the computer system

restart and check if it has been resolved


Another option could be a system restore

Start > pograms > accesories > system tools > system restore

restore to a date where the computer was working properly

Hope this information was helpful

My pc is detecting my pen drive but its not opening. it says insert disk.i saw its properties and its file system is showing unknown


Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->System Restore

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next
Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.


The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.


Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

. Even if you running anti-virus software, it may be beneficial to scan your PC with another scanner to check for viruses. No anti-virus software is 100% perfect at catching everything. Here are a few good free online virus scanners that you can run to check your PC:

http://security.symantec.com/sscv6/home.asp?langid=ie&venid=sym&plfid= 23&pkj=RRJEDTKJBTVISBYWWYP

http://onecare.live.com/site/en-us/default.htm

http://www.eset.com/us/online-scanner

http://www.pandasecurity.com/homeusers/solutions/activescan/

An excellent free utility for overall system maintenance is Advanced System Care Free ( http://download.cnet.com/advanced-systemcare-free/3000-2086_4-10407614 .html ). I use this utility on a regular basis.

You should always run anti-virus software. There are several very good, free, anti-virus products available. One good source to read editor and user reviews, and safely download anti-virus software, is http://download.cnet.com -- search for free antivirus software. In addition to the reviews, you can see how many people are downloading the software, which is another good indicator of how popular it is.

I have used AVG Free ( http://download.cnet.com/avg-anti-virus-free/3000-2239_4-10320142.html ) , and Avast Free ( http://download.cnet.com/avast-free-antivirus/3000-2239_4-10019223.htm l ). Both are very good, and completely free. At present I am using Avast on all of my home computers.

I have heard good things about Avira AntiVir Free ( http://download.cnet.com/Avira-AntiVir-Personal-Free-Antivirus/3000-22 39_4-10322935.html ), and it has good ratings, but I have not personally tried it.

In addition to Avast or one of the other free anti-virus software packages, I also run Ad-Aware ( http://download.cnet.com/ad-aware-free-internet/3000-8022_4-10045910.h tml ). Ad-Aware is a free anti-malware, anti-spyware package.

Good luck!

Have a virus need to get it out need a free nopay tape of antivirus can u help none is working???


If you can download this scanner from mbam called Malwarebytes: http://www.malwarebytes.org/ Once you run this on the target computer you can do a full scan and get rid of the virus, it catches most nasties.
If the virus stop any antivirus from running, you may have to boot into safe mode and run it from a USB device or burn it and run it from a disk. To boot into safe mode :
Turn the computer on or Restart the computer
Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Boot Options Menu appears.
Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected. And boot into safe mode.
Hope this helps,
Cab

My Eee netbook has a virus how do i remove them?


Boot into safe mode (press F8 repeatedly when starting the computer), select safe mode with networking, download, then install an anti-malware software and run it. If you can't download the software on the infected computer, download it onto another computer, then transfer it to the infected computer using a flash drive, but still use safe mode. You'll want to also scan the flash drive before using it on another computer, just to make sure the virus didn't get transfered to the flash drive.

Here are some free anti-malware software:

Hi my computer has a bad virus that i cant get rid of. ive tried a lot of programs but my computer is still the same.


ave you done a full virus scan with up-to-date anti-virus software?

If you don't have any anti-virus software and you use the Internet, you REALLY need to get some! My preferred anti-virus package is Norton Anti-Virus but, if you want a free copy in a hurry, download AVG Anti-Virus from www.grisoft.com - that's also excellent smile.gif

HOW CAN I REMOVE TROJAN VIRUS FROM MY PC?


Run your PC in safe mode with networking prompt as an administrator(because in normal mode the virus will not allow/let you to run a setup file if it's a dangerous virus).Install strong anti-virus like Kaspersky, NOD32 etc. registered version. Update the anti-virus in safe mode and also run.

I think it will help you.

Good Luck
