How I get rid od Malware and More!


Recommended Posts

Hi there! Here's how I deal with the malware and the other pests. I use these programs. If there is any thing left after using these, I don't worry about them. IMHO, if you are still having problems, it's not malwareware related.

Malwarebytes Anti-root  https://www.malwarebytes.com/antirootkit/

JRT  https://www.malwarebytes.com/junkwareremovaltool/

Adwcleaner http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/

Malwarebytes free https://www.malwarebytes.com/mwb-download/

ESET on line scanner http://www.eset.com/us/online-scanner/

These are all freeware. If one of them finds any sigh of malware, I run it again and it comes up clean the second time! I have the cleanest and best maintained computer in the computer world. LOL Here's a link for more on line scanners. My choice is ESET, but here's some more. http://www.ecloudbuzz.com/best-free-online-virus-scanners/

When running on line scanners, you can expect them to take 2-3 hours, depending on your PC. Mine takes 2 hours! 

I hope you give this a look and if you have more suggestions, I'm always ready to listen and give them a shot.

Thanks! Going to post some screen shots and logs, so you can see what these programs do and look like!

Gary's suggestions are right on track for the most part what I recommend, but I do not reccomend giving Superantispyware "its head" as while it once was an awesome program, to day it seems to mostly pull tracking cookies and occasionally has hosed a system I was working on by being a bit too careless. I would rather add "Rogue Killer" to the mix for safety sake: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/roguekiller/

I also suggest "tdss killer" that includes a few more common rootkit issues http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/tdsskiller/   

and I also like to suggest "autoruns" as well where you can remove many uninstalled remains from incomplete installations, to keep startup really clean


One more addtion would be "Win Patrol" which keeps startup and registry clean as well as prevent browser hijacking:


Oh and so you know some of what I recommended have paid versions but also all have free versions that are fully functional as well.
