Removing viruses

Download the free version of MalwareBytes Anti-Malware.

When the program executes, update it, run it and quarantine everything it finds.

Reboot into Safe Mode, usually tapping F8 as the computer starts to boot. Run it again.

Reboot and you are fixed for Malware.

This program is so good I purchased the paid version after using it for years.

You can also go to the Microsoft website and download free Anti-Virus. Windows Defender wil protect you in real time. Download it and run a scan the same way, normal and safe mode.. Let me know how you get on by posting a COMMENT to this post.

When I turned on my computer this morning I got this message saying your computer might be infected with: Sality.AN. Then message asking me to buy this antivirus called Defender pro 2015.

You almost NEVER have to completely format a hard drive to remove a virus.

If you can get into safe mode run a system restore to before the infection, if you can't boot into safe mode then you'll need to get on another computer that can access the internet and download HITMANPRO. Their site explains how to make a USB stick with KICKSTARTER so you can boot from that and it will allow you to remove the bug(s)

Hope that helps.

I have been using Windows Defender on Windows 8.1. Do you think downloading ClamAV is a smart thing to do?

You could try using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, which works seamlessly with other anti-virus programs, such as Windows Defender.

How to turn off safe search

Safe Search is a bad piece of malware that is part of the SafeSearch toolbar. You or someone who used your computer allowed this toolbar to be installed, possibly without realising it.
You may be able to boot up your computer in Safe Mode. Tap the F8 key repeatedly when you turn the power on. After booting into Safe mode do a search for "windows defender". If Windows Defender is there, try running it to remove SafeSearch. Also, there are 2 good malware cleaners that will remove SafeSearch and the toolbar along with it. The cleaners are AdWCleaner and Malwarebytes. Both are free. You can download either one or both from www. ( . Try starting your computer in "Safe Mode with networking". On most computers (except Windows 8) repeatedly press the F8 key on your keyboard right after you turn on the power and before Windows starts to boot up. When in "Safe mode with networking" you can download and install the cleaner. Or, you can download the cleaner on another computer and save it onto a USB flashdrive and plug in the flashfrive to your computer and run the cleaner install from there. Or, go online in Safe mode and go to

I did a quick search for 'defender pro 2008' and saw tons upon tons of complaints of it causing many problems. I would uninstall the software and use something else. A program with so many bugs will probably do more damage if you install and run it.

For anti-virus I would suggest AVG Free, as it is free and works better then those big name brands with their bloated software.
Your windows firewall should be good enough for the basic PC user.
To remove spyware/malware check out another free program called SpyBot Search & Destroy.

To remove Defender, go to your Windows Control panel and click on Add/Remove programs.
