James asks…

How Much To Remove A Virus From A Laptop?

I want to know how much money does it cost to get a virus removed from a laptop. And other repair prices for laptops.
How much does it cost to take it to shop and get it fixed.

softwareguru answers:

Price varies a lot. You might check with your school, some geek might be happy to do it for a few bucks. Small shops often charge less, but not always.

Virus & Spyware Removal $149
http://support.geeksquad.com/support/services/virus_removal_spyware_malware_protection_repair_spyware_removal_computer_optimization

Virus & Spyware Removal $40
http://www.listown.com/computer/ny/200908/519152.htm

Try this free procedure first before you pay a small fortune.

Sometimes you will be unable to update the software below. Run the scans without updating and they will fix this problem. Then update and repeat the scan. It is best if you run the scans in safe mode.

First install, update and run Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware Free Edition (full scan)
http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

Second install, update and run SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition (full scan)
http://www.superantispyware.com/superantispywarefreevspro.html

Then run a full scan with your antivirus.
If you use AVG free version this is not acceptable as it does not remove Rootkits. Avira free, Avast free, “Microsoft Security Essentials” free are three excellent antivirus programs. Do not install more than one.

=====================
Good free online scanners; Run a different one each month or so. Rotate through the list.
“BitDefender Free Online Virus Scan”
“ESET Online Scanner”
“Kaspersky Lab Free Virus Scan”
“McAfee FreeScan”
“Panda ActiveScan”
“Symantec Security Check”
“Trend Micro HouseCall”
“Windows Live OneCare Safety Scanner”
=====================

Malware changing internet pages?

So I got the AV Protection 2011 virus. Every site I visited about removing it first instructed “Download this.” So after dling several malware removal programs and following various other dl this, do this instructions the thing is finally gone. However it seems like it somehow got stuck in my IE and Firefox. Every time I open a popular page like google, imdb, facebook, etc. it goes to a page that says:

Your PC is Infected!
You can loose all your Secure data from bank details to
e-mail or social network password:

Please activate Cloud AV 2012 to
REMOVE Infection from your PC.

Thing is, there’s no program or anything like that on the computer. Nothing. Not even in my registry. So how do I fix this? It’s like the malware is gone except in my interwebs O_o

Michael asks…

spyware doctor starter edition question?

is spyware doctor enogh alone for prtection i hear it dose not have a lot of protection as the full version . and what are some other free anti-spyware programs you use

softwareguru answers:

No, the Spyware Doctor Starter is fantastic at doing what it does best, removing malware. It does not include a lot of the good scale protection that Spyware Doctor normally comes with. So it’s best not to leave that program running, only when you want to run a scan.

The good news is that they have PC Tools Threatfire which is the reverse of the Starter Edition of SD. It has all the protection of SD, just none of the removal.

Freeware – PC Tools Threatfire:
– http://www.threatfire.com/

Another good program is Spyware Blaster. It’s great at blocking things from Internet Explorer and Firefox.

1) Freeware – Spyware Blaster:

After that as long as you have a good antivirus and firewall you’re set. Check out the link below for lists of the best freeware programs you can find:

Your Questions About Virus Protection For Mac

Posted by softwareguru on August 31, 2014

Donna asks…

Which computar should I purchase MacBook Pro or Dell?

I am thinking that I want to buy a MacBook Pro becuz its stylish & something new. My fam always buy Dell. I want a laptop & dells come in alllll the cute colors. Lol im not to sure if Windows come on Mac plus with Dell there is so many virus protection. *siiiiiiiiiigh* decisions, decisionsss Please help! What do you think is better?

softwareguru answers:

If it is a family laptop but you still like a Mac, you can buy a Mac with 2 operating system installed. All OS is prone to virus attacks, just make sure that you have proper antivirus protection and updates. However, for style over substance, you can get Mac.

Linda asks…

Where’s the best place to learn how to use a Mac?

As a long time PC user I’m having a tough time transitioning to my new Mac. For example: I really miss the ability to right-click for easy functions like copy or properties, and the one click tab access on Explorer. I can’t even figure out where or if there is virus protection installed. Basic stuff like that. I need a tutorial or something but can’t find anything like that under Help on my menu bar. Any suggestions?
Plus if anyone can tell me how to Update the software automatically or manually I’d appreciate it.

softwareguru answers:

Well you can go to the apple store or i can answer many of your questions like
to right click just hold ctrl and click
virus protection is not necessary on macs. The operating system is secure enough as is. Few people have had macs that got infected. I would be more than happy to answer any mac or pc questions just email me
