Ask How to Remove Viruses and Malware on Your Windows PC

    Whether you saw a message saying a V*rus/Threat was detected, or your computer just seems slow and unreliable, you’ll want to scan for malware on your PC and remove any you find. Here’s how to clean your PC of viruses and malware.

    While many viruses and other types of malware are designed simply to cause chaos, more and more malware is created by organized crime to steal credit card numbers, online banking credentials, and other sensitive data. The typical old-school viruses aren’t a real problem. The problem now is ransomware and spyware, and that requires new tools and new techniques.

    Did Your Antivirus Say a V*rus/Malware Was Detected?

    If you saw a message pop up that says a V*rus was detected, that’s a good thing. Your antivirus noticed a V*rus and likely removed it without prompting you.

    This sort of message doesn’t mean that you ever had a V*rus running on your computer. You could have downloaded a file that contained a V*rus and your antivirus removed the file before it could ever cause a problem. Or, a malicious file on an infected web page could have been noticed and dealt with before it caused any problems.

    In other words, a “V*rus detected” message that occurs during normal use of your computer doesn’t mean the V*rus actually did anything. If you see a message like this, you’re likely visiting an infected web page or downloading a harmful file. Try to avoid doing that in the future, but don’t worry too much.

    You can also open your antivirus program and check its quarantine or its V*rus detection logs. This will show you more information about what V*rus was detected and what the antivirus did with it. Of course, if you aren’t sure, go ahead and run a scan–it couldn’t hurt.
