Sandra asks…

How can I use Limewire to download songs and not get virus/malware?

What are your styles, techniques,configuration & settings in relation to security to ensure songs downloaded from Limewire(free version) will not give my pc virus and/or malware?
Im mainly intend to download songs…not movies, programs, or exe file.

softwareguru answers:

Normally, the songs don’t have Malware or Viruses. I’d suggest not using it and probably using Yahoo! Music or Napster or something.

But, just watch what your downloading, always have your firewall and protection gear on.

If you do get something that can be bad use this solution:

Use my solution in order to clean up your computer! I have tested it many times before!!

Malicous Software Removal

Please download the following tools, Please Note, that you can only have one firewall and one AntiVirus going at once, If you have the AVG Pro set, then keep that, if you use something else, then I suggest you use this combo:

AntiVirus (My Reccomendation: AVG) Comodo AntiVirus AVG AntiVirus Avast! AntiVirus

Anti Spyware/Rootkit Tools (Please download all of them!)
Comodo BO Clean- Anti-Malware
Spybot Search and Destroy…
A-Squared Anti-Spyware Free
Ad-Aware Personal SE

Comodo Personal Firewall

Step-By-Step Method to Ensuring YOUR Security

1) Uninstall ALL Anti-Virus and Firewalls that you may already have. As these, will cause conflicts with the ones you will be suggested to download.

2) Download ALL of the programs above.

3) After download all the programs re-start your computer once, ensuring that all/most of the programs start on start-up. Ad-Aware, Spybot and AVG Anti Rootkit and A-Squared shouldn’t. Make sure the firewall and AntiVirus do though.

4) Update all of the programs. You should do daily updates, and weekly scans. This will most definitly ensure your protection and your system status!

5) Re-Boot your computer into Safe mode. To log into safe mode, “Button-Mash” (simoltaneously hit the key) F8. Then if it gives you a menu, hit “Safe-Mode”.

6) After giving it a minute or two to start-up, open up all of the AVG programs. Run them; give them an hour or two as this is their first scan.

7) Save your report if it gives you the option to, and if it does happen to detect a virus, and then simply remove it.

8) Open up, A-Squared Free Edition, Ad-Aware, Spybot, but, NOT WINDOWS DEFENDER! Run all of these programs and use them to scan. Again, if they detect anything then delete it. If you detected something previously in the AVG Scans then Congratulations! AVG was a great choice for you.

9) Open Windows Defender. Windows Defender is average, and takes a while to scan. Let that scan, and it shouldn’t find anything at this point.

10) Congratulations! You have succesfully completed this Anti-Infection Proccess and you are guarenteed safety!

Need a Clean-up?

A simple program that removes unused and temporary files from Windows machines.

O&O Defrag…
O&O Defrag Professional is the most professional and user-friendly features ever found in defragmentation software.

Step-By-Step method on cleaning up your Comp (Basic Version only):

1) Run & Install all the programs above

2) Restart Computer to ensure installation

3) Run Safe Mode (Explained in Virus Clean-Up above)

4) Run all the programs, but NOT O&O Defrag YET!

5) CCleaner will find some stuff and hit fix this and it will clean basic things.

6) Now, for this, make sure, that you DO NOT have any programs running. Exit out of any programs running!!

7) Run O&O Defrag. You’ll see on the top toolbar “Defragmentation” Click that, and then hit “Complete/Name” This is the most complex organization tool and will take a long, long time! I’d recommend doing this overnight while your sleeping!

What you should do Daily/Weekly:

Update all of your programs, DAILY
Scan your computer using all programs WEEKLY
Defragment using O&O Software, MONTHLY (you can do weekly, if you wish)
Run CCleaner & Disk Clean Up (Found in the Accessories Part of the start menu) Daily!
