Are there any free downloads that can help me get rid of viruses and help my computer to run better?
avg 2013 free works wonderfully
Use avast antivirus it will be better solution for PC free
Hitman works very well and is very fast. Just make sure you download the right version. Either 64 Bit or 32 bit
Avast or AVG
antivirus programs :(al are free)
microsoft security essentials
You were using a networked computer with no current anti-virus software??? Save your files to an external HDD or flashdrive and reinstall everything. This time include anti-virus software and make sure its updated regularly.
I have installed Microsoft Security Essentials on my laptop. It doesnt make my pc slow and seems good so far. I have also installed Iobit Malware fighter which is free but without premium features. You can read the article on this site which has listed top anti virus programs for windows. I read the same and decided on above 2 anti virus programs for my laptop.
avast free antivirus (google it)
You can try here -
If you still think you are infected after trying all these recommendations then a reinstall of the OS may be needed...
have you use combofix try http://www.combofix.org
avaira anti virus is the best
Hi Jordan. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is very good:
Plus the latest AVG Anti Virus Free 2013:
I'm impressed with both and have them both just to make double sure if one misses something.
I think Avast is the best compared to other and Quick Heal is also nice
I'm always using Superantispyware Portable. You can get it from http://www.superantispyware.com/portablescannerhome.html
I would suggest Combofix. It is used to clear out some of the less-known viruses..
I prefer Windows Security Esentials along with ClamAV. You can use both of them at a time. (Do not try other combinations. Not all antivirus softwares are mutually compatible).
Malware Bytes and Norton and Bitdefender Rescue Disk
You can install Avast and then Malwarebytes (both of them are available free for home use).
Off top of the head...
Comodo Internet Security Pro 2013 Beta:
AVG Free Anti-virus:
Hope this helps!
All round solution of a integrated firewall, antivirus, anti spy and malware will be Comodo Internet Security Premium. It is totally free and downloadable at http://www.comodo.com/home/internet-security/free-internet-security.php
I also would use Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
just search google free antivirus giveaway..and you will find thousands of premium antivirus for free...like Kaspersky, bitdefender...dont forget to search "past 24 hours" in google for recent giveaways...im using this way for past 2 years :D
I searched and found a bitdefender giveaway! :) thanks for the tip man!
try with live cd SARDU
try the microsoft security essentials. it's an effective light weight program.
Avira and Avast. They are the only one I've found best. As I've searched a lot for antiviruses, struggled different websites, read reviews. Avira is best and then Avast.
People also say AVG is best but it use more resources and also heavy. Avira is a bit heavy but it is realtime. In Avast you'll not find any stop or cancel button while downloading updates. So you'll get stuck once you clicked Start updates (bad for slow connections). Also it'll never tell you how many MBs are left. But why I liked it because it provides overall protection (but that's also more than enough). You can see its screenshots. I changed my mind. Instead of editing whole comment I better say it's Avira!
Raman, can we use both Avira and Avast on a same system? just wondering...
No it is best to run one virusprogram at the time. ( they can interfere with eachother or see the other program as a virus, stuff like that )
I think avast is the best one, but i recommend to run other ( online ) scanners every now and then. Like Kapersky or mcAfee.
