Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
Here are two tricks I want to share with you before we get into the tools.
The first one is Add/Remove Programs. I also included this feature in the Step above. You reach this feature by go to: Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs. If your problems occurred right after you installed a new program, find that software you recently installed and click on it. A button should appear on the right-hand side which says either Remove or Change/Remove. Click it. Follow the prompts in order to uninstall the program.
The second trick I want to tell you about is Removing Temporary Internet Files.
Open Internet Explorer and find Tools. Click Internet Options. Under the General Tab and the heading of Browsing History, click Delete. A new box will pop up, click Delete All. Check "Also delete..." box and click OK.
To do the same in Mozilla Firefox, open Firefox and choose Tools. Click Clear Private Data. Put a check in all of the checkboxes and click Clear Private Data Now.
What this does is remove temporary files that your computer automatically saves when you browse the internet. It's designed to make browsing faster by storing already viewed data for use later when the same information is accessed again. The problem is that it is a hotspot for viruses and infected files. Also, there may be a lot of these files depending on your settings and if you have ever done this process before. Cleaning out this folder will make our future virus scans quicker and save us a lot of time.
Step 3 Now it is on to the tools. I have mentioned the "free" aspect a few times in this guide and it holds true. However, the next program is not free to everyone, but it's important enough for me to include.
Also, I introduced you to Safemode in a paragraph above. After installing and updating but before running scans with the programs below, start your computer in Safemode and then runs the scans. This will allow the programs to remove threats that it may have problems removing otherwise in normal mode.
If you have never heard of Firefox, you are missing out. Think of it as how Internet Explorer should work. It does all of the same things but better. It will open quicker and keep your computer more secure. Download, install, and say goodbye to Internet Explorer.
