Anti-Virus: How to Prevent, Clean, and Repair Computer Malware

July 17th, 2011 · 9 Comments · Computer Technology & Technical Support, Computers

If you notice that your browser redirects to a page you did not intend, or your system seems to be running slow, you may be a victim of a Virus or Malware.

I found some good information on another site that tells you how to deal with such problems.

Proper repair of any malware is a 3-step process, using automated tools that are readily downloadable from the Internet.
1.  Fix the registry.
2.  Kill the rogue processes spawned by the malware.
3.  Run the scanner to find/repair/delete the infection.

Links to the tools are:
1.  FixNCR.reg        (http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/reg/FixNCR.reg)
2.  RogueKiller       (http://www.sur-la-toile.com/RogueKiller/)
3.  Malwarebytes  (http://www.malwarebytes.org/)

    I have an avast anti virus installed on my computer, and after a month my computer start running slowly. Is it because of Malwarebytes? I scan my Anti Virus but it doesn’t detect any virus.
    What do you think?

    From my research, Malwarebytes Pro uses very few resources, yet provides excellent protection. It is rated by many experts as the best at what it does. Yet those same experts warn that nothing is 100% effective.

    I really like using Norton 360. I have been using it for a few years now, and it seems to work well. Anytime I tried any of the free antivirus programs, I just ended up with a virus, so I don’t think that I will use anything but that ever again.

    As of the moment I am using AVG and so far it has been good. It really pays to read post like this to be abreast of the latest and new applications on anti virus.
