Some Programs To Keep Your Computer Healthy…

Category: Uncategorized

I’ve gotten tons of emails and calls over the years for computer help from friends and family that want to know what they need to do to get rid of spyware/adware/viruses etc. Since I’ve typed this up on quite a few occasions, I figured I’d post it here and then it’ll be available from now on. I can simply post the link to this post and peeps can take action from there.
These three programs are what I run and recommend running on your computers. They’re all free and together, they can help keep most ‘crap’ from being installed on continuing to run on your system. Get them all:

adaware-logoAdaware = Adware/Spyware program. Run the install, updates, then scan whole computer. Use this once a month..update, then “smart scan”.

Click here or on the logo to the left to download.

spybot_logoSpybot= Adware/Spyware program. Same as above. Also, you can set this one to scan everyday automatically for you in Advanced settings. I recommend setting up daily scans.

Click here or on the logo to the left to download. (use first or second “download here” button)

avg antivirus \AVG FREE = Free Anit-Virus solution. Set this up, update, let it run and update everyday. Be sure to set it to scan and update once a day. I usually set it to do this at 3 or 4am, when I know I’m most likely going to be asleep and away from the computer.

**Some users have reported that the latest version of AVG free slows their computer down to unacceptable levels. AVG has said that they are working on speeding up some of the components, but if you install this and scans are taking 4 or 5 hours, you might want to try AVAST (which is also a free antivirus). I like AVG better, but Avast is very good as well. You can get that here.

*I recommend to save all these files to your Desktop (or somewhere that you will remember and then run them). You can delete the downloaded files once you’ve installed them.

These scans might take a while…but they’re the shit.

Good Luck

    Hey zOnk.oNe –

    Thanks for giving us a shout out for the Ad-Aware Free product. We work hard to make sure this freeware is a powerful and efficient spyware/malware removal tool, and it is good to get the direct feedback.
