Recently, on Facebook I noticed that many of the Internet Users did not know “how to keep their Win PC clean & Free of Malware”. The Following Step should keep your system on the top.
Step: 1: Prevention is Better than Cure: Install a Anti Virus Program, Not that I am against these Anti Virus Industry but I think many of them take too much of resources. I Recommend the Microsoft Default Program “Microsoft Security Essentials”
Step: 2: Prevention is Better than Cure: Install CCLeaner to Remove all the temp files and other junk which you collect over the internet. for those who require assistance Piriform Website or WikiHow (Note: I also use “CCleaner” to Adjust my Startup Programs).
Step: 3: Once Infected (its like flu: everybody is infected): First Download the Following Applications and save these to a folder on Desktop “cleanUp” or on to an USB Stick (Drive)
- Junkware Removal Tool (JRT) from “thisisudax.org” or Download
- Rootkit Remover “TDSSKiller” from Kaspersky Labs or Download : No Need to use the “kaspersky” softwares and anti-virus, just download the “TDSSKiller” Note: the Malware block this program hence once you download rename it to “myTDSClean”
