Free antivirus program


You don't have a question here, but I will comment on AVG. I used to use AVG and have Beta Tested both AVG and AVAST. AVAST I can set up a Boot-Time Scan and with AVG I can not. Importance of a Boot-Time Scan, is getting rid of persistent viruses. There is NO, and I mean NO antivirus program that totally works under Windows. The Boot-Time Scan works under DOS and runs before windows is loaded upon your next restart. It takes longer, but it works very well. Depending on the size of your hard drive and the number of files on it, it can take as long as 2 to 2 1/2 hours. It is automatic, so walk away and when you see windows has loaded, then the Boot-Scan has finished. There is a log file that you can view to see what it found if you want to look. Once AVG let a virus into my computer, I went to AVAST and never went back, mainly because AVAST works and also the Boot Scan feature that AVAST has. Years ago, there was a DOS based virus scan that I had used on a Floppy Disc to rid computers of nasty virus attacks and infested PC's. It was proven to me that only a DOS based program can rid any virus a PC is infected with. With the free version you do not necessarily get all the help you need, but with the paid versions you will get all the Bells and Whistles. While free is alright to try, I recommend you Buy! This keeps software development going in the right direction and improvements flourishing.

Virus blocking screen and demanding money


Restart computer or laptop. Press repeatedly F8 and choose Safe Mode with networking. Uninstall any other antivirus solution. Install AVAST - www.avast.com and Malwarebytes Anti Malware - http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_pro/. Update antivirus definitions on both of them. Run Malwarebytes and choose a full scan. After the scan is complete choose to remove all infections and the computer will restart. Start again in safe mode, choose Boot time SCAN from avast and restart computer. Delete all infected files - it will ask for your choice: 1- delete, 2 - delete all 3 ignore 4 ignore all etc. Post here the results. If in safe mode you cannot connect to internet download Malwarebytes in another computer and use a usb stick to copy to infected computer. When you will use usb stick in another computer again scan it !!!!
