    virus/malware remover?


    Currently im using Avast!, AntiMalware Malwarebytes, and Glary utilities for system cleanup/tune, but I ended up downloading this program called

    SpyHunter4 and it found issues (virus/trojan/malware/creepercookies) but its asking me to pay to remove the selected programs.

    I'll tell you for a price
    looks like youre already using the best couple? SpyHunter isnt to be trusted, at least it got itself a really bad name in the past for deceptive issues. I am surprised you could even remove it .. you did remove it yeah?

    removed question mark.

    AntiMalware Malwarebytes seems to always get top review and stops the most malware etc. More than one seems overkill.
    I take another rout, I just dont visit sites or download stuff that potentially could cause issues. Prevention is better than the clap as my Grandma used to tell me.

    Spywareblaster is worth a mention. You need to update manually as they put out an updated malware list everyday, the only difference I know of between the free and paid version is automatic updates. I could be wrong.

    Hope that helps.

    As for a general uninstaller I don't think you can get much better that Revo Uninstaller. They have a Free as well as a Paid Version. This can be very helpful in getting rid of stubborn program installations.

    Just don't start doing like a friend of mine, for 3 days he's been bugging me about "How to remove that pesky "EULA program" with Revo.

    I only use MalwareBytes. As a matter of principle, I would NEVER pay a company for a program to clean the PC as the incentive is for them to claim your PC is infected , even when it isn't because you won't pay them unless they convince you that your PC is infected.

    Booting in "safe mode with networking" is a necessary step and one that many choose to skip and MalwareBytes will have a much better chance of cleaning the device if it's run in this mode...

    the odd thing is TORN tv isn't even installed, it was a "app" that i was prompted to download so its just in my registry
