I use and highly recommend 'Norton 360' for ALL Computer Malware protection - NOT Norton antivirus, NOT Norton Internet Protection nor any other software, ONLY NORTON 360. NOTE: NORTON 360 has been replaced by NORTON zzzz What to do if your anti-virus/malware remover does NOT do the job.


In this day and age, you will also need to occasionally run some different Malware removers, Especially ROOTKIT Removers (Rootkits are very stubborn forms of Malware, and they hide extremely well). I suggest that you backup your files before trying advanced malware removal. (after at least backing up my System files via Creating a Windows Restore Point). I run these three programs, in this order (They have saved me, before): MalwareBytes Anti-Malware Sophos Virus (and Rootkit) Removal Tool <= I generally found this to be the best for Rootkits MalwareBytes Rootkit Remover (BETA) IF NONE OF THE ABOVE REMOVERS WORKED FOR YOU, I SUGGEST THAT YOU GO TO THIS 40 PAGE DOCUMENT, by Sophos: WHICH HAS LINKS TO OTHER, GREAT, FREE WINDOWS MALWARE REMOVERS -
