Question about Computers & Internet
Usually viruses are picked up inthe download of a file and most are just a big pain in the but. They will consume your system and overwork it by making programs run constantly ie, if you receive constant pop ups, blue screens, computer is running slow, these are indications of a virus present in your system. Removal can be simple, but time consuming or, could lead to a total system crash.
Malwarebytes is a good for removing malware(trojans)> The free version is pretty effective. Download, click next, allow, etc., until download is finished, and it may run a quick scan immediately, allowe it to do so, then allow the necessary repairs. The quick scan doesn't hit all your files, but hits the ones most likely to be causing your immediate problem. It's not a bad tool to have. You will wither want to run a full scan now, it will take a couple of hours, or run a anti virus program now. If you don't have anti virus protection or are unhappy with your present one you can try here:
Again you can try the free version. The free versions are usually good enough to protect the average person. Allow this download to run and finish, then allow a full scan and let it make recommended repairs. You wil want to restart your system whenever they recommend and if you haven't already done so , do so now.
Some of the viruses corrupt your registry to a point that these two still won't totally rid your system of the aggravating slowness and ocasional crash. I don't know of a free registry cleaner but I recommend:
This sysyem will clean your discs and your files and, also can be used to clean tour registry. They may have a free or trial version you can try and use without having to buy if you don't want to. In the home page you will see the cleaner and below that you will see "registry". Click on the registry tab/icon and allow that to run and make it's repairs.
Your anti virus can be set to run automatically, at a time when it won't interfere with and or cause you to have to sit through the scan in the future. You want to set it to run a full scan.

Download & Run AVG free
Click this link and let the software do the work. You shouldn't trust an online scan, always get a reputable program for a second opinion. I install this software on all my repairs.
Hope this eases your mind.
