How to Remove Harmful Programs From Different Operating Systems

What is a malware infection

These days, only few people can brag that they have never suffered from unwanted programs. Considering a sum of malicious websites on the Internet, and a variety of malicious programs, that overflow the web, the chance to infect the PC is extremely high. Indeed, most of the mans' computers are packed by malware, but users do not point it out, because malware shows itself little by little.

For example, a user bought a computer 6 months ago, but chose to save money on the anti-viral software. He observes as his computer turns dumber every day, it needs 2-3 minutes to switch on, autorun menu is filled with different installers and archivers. That's an exemplary set of a user, who uses a computer and the Internet, mainly for watching videos and chatting. Such a user doesn’t want to understand what's wrong with the computer, he simply accepts it as a given: computer is spoiled. In fact, the PC can start to break down not earlier than after 2-4 years of function in the usual way, and with no violations. When system backpedals so much, that man can make a cup of tea and drink it, while PC starts - man goes to buy a new PC, since the first one is "broken". Otherwise, he goes to the computer workshop, and gives away 100-200 dollars for complete cleaning of the system. In fact, these problems can be resolved by wasting less money, or not spending it generally! Here I will instruct you, how to make it right.

How to clean a computer from useless files fast, efficiently and easily

First, man has to clean the registry for errors, delete junk files, and clean approachable hard drive space. There are special programs for this, and the most trusted one among them is Piriform CCleaner, with Registry Cleaner and Registry Defrag extensions.

As well, that function can be executed by an anti-virus utility Qihoo 360 Total Security. This treatment is, actually, the repair of faults, caused by improper removal of programs, and their irregular function. A clogged registry, as well as the variety of fragmented data on the hard drive, noticeably slows down the system, yet without the involvement of malware. Start CCleaner, and await, until the program will perform its part. CCleaner ensures a reply on the number of trash files found, and about speeding up of the system, that is assumed, as an outcome of cleaning. When you will see the notification, you won’t believe, how clogged was your PC, but this software is not cheating on you, every reply is true. You've just got rid of plenty of garbage, so now you actually can get rid of malware.

How to remove the malware

If you have removed the trash files with the help of Qihoo 360 Total Security, you do not actually have to install anything. Furthermore, I can suggest an utility Malwarebytes AntiMalware, the quality of which is not inferior to Total Security’s, and, in some cases actually surpasses it. Now then, man must load the specified program, set it up, start the scan, and then have a cup of tea, or sit down to watch a movie. If there wasn’t any antiviral tool installed on your computer before, scanning process may take quite some time.

After the scan, the roster of malware becomes available, and it will be a wise choice to review it. Shift everything that does not induce any doubts, to the list of security programs, and remove the rest. When the removal is complete and the computer is reloaded, you should initiate the scanning process one more time, because some unwanted programs cannot be located after one scan. For superior results, you should apply both of the suggested programs to examine the PC in rotation. There are malicious programs that resist deletion, with the use of antiviral programs, and if you repeatedly have one name in the roster of viruses, it will be right to uninstall the unwanted program manually. The by-hand deletion process is narrowly diverse for diverse operating systems, but as an example, I'll take the most widespread Windows 8:

  1. Point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, and tap Search.
  2. Enter control panel in the search box, and then click Control Panel.
  3. Under View by:, select Large Icons, and then click Programs and features.
  4. Click the program, and then click Uninstall.
  5. Follow the instructions on the screen.
  6. Delete malware from Control Panel
  • Start
  • Control Panel
  • Programs
  • Programs and Features
  • Uninstall a program
  • Select malware and press Uninstall

After scanning and manual removal of malicious software, you'll need to launch CCleaner again, and after that you can take delight in quick and stable operation of the computer, without spending out a single coin! If you want more information about the uninstall from other operating systems, you're welcome to review our main site, we have the methods to delete malware from each edition of Windows that is actual today.
