Your Questions About Malware Removal Free

Ken asks…

How can i get rid of the personal security virus/scam from my computer?

I have tried downloading various free virus scans but they are all blocked. I have tried putting them on a memory stick from another computer but the virus blocks the use of it. I have been advised to change the name of the file I am downloading but i don’t know how to. I am desperate. Please, all advice gratefully received.

Mary asks…

What is some good free adware/spyware etc detection and removal software?

Adaware is so ridiculously slow! I always used to use it but surely theres a better free tool by now?

softwareguru answers:

Adaware is not really that good compared to other free ones available. I used it for about a day before I uninstalled it and seeked an alternative.

I would recommend Spybot S&D. It offers real-time protection and it doesn’t take too long to scan.

Another good one is SUPERAntiSpyware. I am pretty sure that you have to pay an upgrade to get the real-time protection on this one.

And last, but not least, Malwarebytes’.
