Virus and Malware Removal Tips

  • Make sure that you clean out all your temporary internet files. These are favourite hiding places for viruses, malware and root-kits.
  • Before you start to run any anti-virus software scanner – make sure that it is fully up-to-date. An out-of-date scanner is as good as useless.
  • It can often help if your anti-virus or malware scan is performed when your computer is in Safe Mode.
  • Using the Control Panel’s Folder Options icon. Make sure that “hidden folders” are set to be displayed.
  • If you’re a Windows user, carefully examine your System32 folder for any suspicious looking files.
  • Even if your anti-virus or malware scanner has detected nothing suspicious on your system – this does not mean that it is completely free of threats. Independent studies have shown that the five best-selling anti-virus / internet security packages have an average detection rate of only 78 per cent.
