AVG Anti-Rootkit is a powerful tool with state-of-the-art technology for detection and removal of rootkits. Rootkits are used to hide the presence of a malicious object like Trojans or keyloggers on your computer. If a threat uses rootkit technology to hide itself it is very hard to find the malware on your PC. AVG Anti-Rootkit gives you the power to find and delete the rootkit and to uncover the threat the rootkit is hiding.

CCleaner is a freeware system optimization and privacy tool. It removes unused files from your system – allowing Windows to run faster and freeing up valuable hard disk space. It also cleans traces of your online activities such as your Internet history. But the best part is that it’s fast and contains NO spyware or adware.

ClearAllHistory – clears browser history, cache, cookies, clipboard and remove other computer activity tracks.

**NOTE: Only have one antivirus program and one firewall installed on your computer.
Anti-adware/malware/spyware are ok to have more of.

Also scan with online scanners sometimes.

Donna asks…

Bogus spyware?

We had a spyware alert come up telling us there were serious things found on my husbands website. We clicked all the links, and ended up being asked for money to get rid of these findings, although our internet security found nothing. Now we cannot get rid of it, and it is stopping my husband using his site, even his internet banking. He has done re-start, andall sorts, but it will not go away. neither of us is very up on computers, and we don’t know what to do next. Has anyone got any suggestions how to get rid of this scam spyware nuisance???
We have Macafee security, and we thought that was supposed to stop this sort of thing happening?
