Your Questions About Virus Scanner

Posted by softwareguru on July 21, 2014

Mary asks…

Does anyone know of a good virus scanner such as Spybot Search and Destroy?

My computer has been (probably still is) under attack by some type of virus. I’m unable to browse through Windows Explorer, and I’m unable to establish a connection with the Spybot program I’ve installed a while back to do my virus scanning. Also, when I type things into the search engine, I go to random locations and have to go back and do the search again.

Anyways, does anyone know of a good virus scanner?
A FREE virus scanner.

softwareguru answers:

Spybot S&D isn’t a ‘virus’ scanner. Look into Avast!, Avira or AVG. To get rid of your problems right now, you may also need to run MalwareBytes (also not an ‘anti-virus’ program). Another good program is AdAware (yet again, not an ‘anti-virus’). The symptoms you are having are probably caused by malware which can be taken care of by running MalwareBytes in safe mode.
