Is your computer slowing down? Having popups or ads? Your problem is malware.

 
 

Your anti-virus program was not made to remove these problems.

There is a neat program called malwarebytes that takes care of the problem.

There is a FREE VERSION

at: http://www.malwarebytes.org

 

It work great,try it & you will see. biggrin

Excellent Recommendation Truman

We also recommend two other FREE adware and spyware removal programs that can be run simultaneously with MalwareBytes ;

I use Malwarebytes myself but Adaware is a good one as well. I have't heard anything about super anti spyware in any of my malware communities.

I like malwarebytes, but I use McAfee Security system on my computer, and the two weren't compatible. So I started using Superantispyware and have been very pleased. It gets some of the things other scans don't. It is worth a try.

I thank you both for raising awareness of malware! I would have done well to read your posts weeks ago.

I am a novelist with a Web site at www.randalljarmon.com. It got infected with malware indirectly (by having a link to another site that really was infected) and was down for twelve days during the Christmas Holiday Season. Google during that time had me listed among sites that had something like digital Ebola. I explain the sequence of events in a blog post at my site.

All this prompted me to start using a high-grade security service to watch over my site. There are at least three of these services out there, and I would guess there might be dozens. I went with SiteLock since my ISP made that easy to do. I have come to think SiteLock is excellent, but I am hardly an expert on what is available. You might find other such companies as good or better.

SiteLock does a daily malware scan of my site. Their scanner began finding one or two malware attacks or malware vulnerabilities each week. For me, that was a big eye opener. I had no idea malware was that serious a threat. I thought one mostly had to worry about viruses.

Perhaps I should point out here that SiteLock does not seem necessary for most individual computers. Norton, McAfee, and nearly a dozen other companies will handle malware with their fee-based (e.g. not free) firewall programs. I think Microsoft might even include its own malware protection program (Windows Defender?) as part of Windows 8, but --- since I don't use their program --- I am not sure about what they offer.

But --- back to my narrow topic --- because I did not appreciate malware, I ended up with twelve days of technical headaches and missed a key selling period. I hope others learn from my misconception. Malware infection is absolutely no fun.

Just note, malware on your website is different than malware on your personal computer.

So www.malwarebytes.org a service I use personally is something you cannot use on your website.

Yes! You are entirely correct in that regard. Thanks for making the distinction clear.

I use Malwarebytes & AntiSpyWare (professional versions for the past several years); I have not had any problems with my WINDOWS systems.
