How To Remove Viruses And Malware
There is a now a free book you can download. It's all about removing viruses and malware from your computer so you can clean your computer and keep it clean.
(It's in pdf format so you can simply right click and save as.)
Although it's free it contains valuable information plus actual links where you can go to download free virus removal and free malware removal programs.
The book contains information and clickable links to excellent free virus removal programs such as HouseCall by Trendmicro.com, SpyBot Search & Destroy, AVG Anti-Virus, HiJack This, etc. I use all these programs regularly myself.
As the book says, many of us have a false sense of being protected against viruses and spyware. Many of us have discovered - too late - that is just not enough.
These days, simply running one virus scan or virus removal program on your computer is not enough. It does not guarantee that your computer is free from infection by computer viruses, malware, trojans, etc. It takes a mix of the right software tools to keep your computer clean.
Also, proper usage of software to keep your computer clean, is very important. This free report will help you on your way to keeping your computer clean.
Why Pay For Protection?
Symantec, Norton, McAffee. These are the big players in anti-virus software. Often they require you to buy a license, which has to be renewed regularly. They do not fully protect your computer. Computers can be full of viruses while using these virus scanners.
They are a big drain on your computer resources and slow down your computer considerably. They usually consist of many parts that are installed in various places on your computer. Uninstalling it can be an annoyance for unexperienced users.
Users of such virus-scanners, are reluctant to remove it from their computer: They paid for using the software, so they wrongly assume that it must be better than free virus-scanners.
If they want to uninstall it to try out some other virus-scanner, they are often unsure if they can get it re-installed later. So they stick to a policy of "not touching it".
Lesser-known anti-virus software
There are a lot of different anti-virus solutions. Many of us want a free antivirus software, and end up downloading some relatively unknown program. Often it fixes only a small number of threats. But there is also a chance that it is infected software claiming to be an anti-virus software.
While being lesser-known does not necessarily mean that it is bad software, it is recommended to stick to antivirus software that has built a good reputation.
