👮How To Remove A Computer Virus Or Malware Using Malwarebytes🔧


call it a virus a browser hijack malware
adware whatever you call it you don’t want one on your computer but if you do
get one there’s a great tool to help you get rid of it now we’re bytes is
probably the one tool you need to install in addition to your antivirus
software quite simply it’s brilliant Google malwarebytes and go to their
homepage you’ll have the option to buy it or to install a free version start by
downloading the free version and click open you’ll need to agree the license and
then follow the installation steps I let it choose where to install but I
don’t want the free trial yet so I uncheck that checkbox you’ll then see that there’s a new icon
on your desktop and the control panel for malwarebytes will open the first
thing that it does is to update its threat database and this can take a few
minutes if it’s a new installation but once that’s done click on the rather
obvious scan now button to start your first scan depending on the size of your
computer and the number of files you have it can take quite a while to scan
and although it will scan in the background it’ll slow you down so choose
a time when you don’t need the machine for anything else this particular scan
took about eight minutes to complete malwarebytes works in two ways firstly
it scans every file on your computer and compares it against a list of malware
signatures that it downloads to its database because new malware is being
released into the wild all the time it’s a major job keeping up with it and you
need to make sure that your antivirus and malware databases are regularly
updated but not all malware shows up on a database so malwarebytes also checks
the behavior of suspicious files it’s called heuristic analysis if they appear
to do something suspicious like trying to change your browser setttings
malwarebytes flags them up heuristics can throw up false positives but you can
upload the file to www.virustotal.com to check it once malwarebytes has completed
its can it will flag any suspicious files and here’s the results of my scan
thankfully there’s no malware on them but there are a lot of PUP’s or
potentially unwanted programs malwarebytes has already put them in
quarantine so i can either restore them or delete them well i’m going to get rid
of all of them so i click delete all am I sure I sure am sure and they’re gone
now here’s what the scan could look like if malware had been
detected an initial scan is essential but it’s a good idea to scan your
computer at least once a month low-grade infections can really slow things down
and you may not realize you’re hosting malware that your computer will spread
to other people’s machines say every time you send an email having tried out
the free program you can choose to upgrade to premium it’s not too
expensive and it is a great tool but there’s another option if you don’t want
the bother of installing and running malwarebytes yourself if you have an
account with eTop Technology we automatically run this software across
all of our networks so you don’t have to bother with it and if you do get an
infection that you can’t delete or you’re suspicious about the behavior of
your computer then eTop Technology will sort it for you eTop Technology
