Lizzie asks…

Can’t download any anti-virus software because of a virus?

My windows defender won’t turn on because of a virus or malware, I keep trying to get help on the Microsoft website and it recommends things to download to get rid of it but every time I try to run the downloads my computer stops them and tells me it detected a virus in the downloads and won’t complete it. Obviously they don’t have virus’s in them because they’re from the official Microsoft website but I can’t download them to get rid of the virus I do have because the virus keeps telling me that there are virus’s in the anti-virus downloads!

How can I download Microsoft Safety Scanner if my computer keeps blocking it?

softwareguru answers:

You should use multiple anti-spyware programs. No single one will catch everything. Unlike antivirus software and firewalls, they won’t conflict.

Free anti-spyware programs:
• Ad-Aware http://www.lavasoftusa.com/products/ad-aware_se_personal.php
• Spybot Search & Destroy http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/index.html
• Windows Defender http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/spyware/software/default.mspx
• SpywareBlaster http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
• SuperAntiSpyware http://www.superantispyware.com/

After you install, update them so that you have current definitions
