    you may want to reconsider your feelings on avg, they are the best i have found so far .. stay away from nortons, and macafee

    go back to , get the anti-spy, and anti-malicouis software as well run them each seperatly, you will be shocked as too how much these programs really do . download windows defender , as this will help as well .

    Try the following solution to ensure your safety

    The following tools/steps will help you ensure your safety! In addition, you are in control of what you download and only you can prevent yourself from getting a virus. The following tools will help you protect against it and delete a virus, but remember the fait of your computer is in YOUR Hands.


    AVG Anti-Virus
    AVG Anti-Spyware
    AVG-Anti Rootkit

    Anti Spyware/Rootkit:
    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 twice, ensuring that all/most of the programs start on start-up. Ad-Aware, Spybot and 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 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, then simply remove it.

    8) Open up, A-Squared Free Edition, Ad-Aware, Spybot, SpySweep 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 top toolbar “Defragmentation” Click that, and then hit “Complete/Name” This is the most complex organazation tool and will take a long, long time! I’d reccomend doing this overnight while your sleeping!
