    that's how we scanned it with the other programs. someone suggested taking out the hard drive and connecting it to another computer to run the scans.

How i keep my pc safe, clear & malware free?


You can keep your PC Clean from viruses and malware by downloading and installing a couple of programs


Antivirus:
AVG Free
Avast Antivirus
These are both free and great, i personally lean towards the use of AVG

CCleaner
CCleaner is a program which removes all your temp files which is usually where malware is kept

and finally
Spybot S&D
Spybot removes any Malware software that has been installed


all these programs are completely free or have a free version


Hope this helps.

Very very slow to do anything


Sounds to me, you might be infected. Be sure and Back-up everything, before you can't do anything. Here is some good information for you.

Go to www.trendmicro.com, and do the free scan Trend Micro's House Call virus, spyware and malware scanner and cleaner.

If you have anything, remove them.

Download Spybot Search & Destroy. Restart computer, then run Spybot to see what spyware comes up.

FYI---Virus Protection-- 2 programs of virus protection will conflict with each other and will actually cancel out the protection. .

Running Spybot Search & Destroy with EITHER Avast or Avg (great Free virus protection programs ) will keep a computer in good working condition. FREE

I have Pest Patrol and have malware with Winpc Defender


Try another program. Try Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Spybots-Search and Destroy. Both are free and work great.
-- Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is a high performance anti-malware application that thoroughly removes even the most advanced malware and spyware.
--Spybot - Search & Destroy detects and removes spyware, a relatively new kind of threat not yet covered by common anti-virus applications. Spybots also runs at start up and catches any program trying to make changes to your system registry.

I have an alert stating that WARNING SPYWARE HAS BEEN DETECTED ON YOUR COMPUTER


Your computer is infected with malware. You should install an antivirus and at least one antimalware program(the more the better). Once they are installed, make sure they are updated and run a scan with each program individually in safe mode(press f8 at the post screen when you turn on your computer and choose safe mode). A couple good free antivirus programs are AVG and Avast. To name a few good anti malware programs there's Spybot Search and Destroy, Superantispyware, and Lavasoft Adaware. You can also go to www.ewido.com and run an online scan.

Download anti-spyware software and then run thorough scan to clean ur computer,
