It’s a common problem. Computer slows down to a crawl, popups from out of nowhere, browser has a mind of it’s own, your homepage is no longer YOUR homepage. These are symptoms of spyware, adware, viruses, malware, and other bugs. Once you get these bugs on your system, it is very hard to track them down and remove them.
There are some solutions. Many different software programs to scan and clean your computer. But did you know that some of these programs are spyware or trojans themselves! Have you ever had this popup that appears every time you restart your computer? Soon as your desktop appears, this popup comes out of nowhere and says you need to scan your computer because it is infected. Friend, that is a trojan program.
They want you to scan your computer then buy the software to clean your supposedly infected computer. It’s the hackers way of spamming you to get your money. These trojans are VERY hard to get rid of. But there is hope 🙂
There is one program of hundreds that I’ve tried and it’s the only one that was successful in ridding my computer of the trojan that plagued it. The name of this miraculous program is Malwarebytes. And the best part is – it’s free!
Install it and be sure to update the definitions. Run a full scan first. Since this is the first time you are running the program, it will take quite a while to scan your computer so start the scan then go grab a snack. When the scan is done you can remove the bugs it found then restart your computer. I recommend this program to everyone. It was a lifesaver for me!
