Infection And Spyware Scans If you don’t as of now have an antivirus program and a few antispyware programs introduced and refreshed on your PC, at that point you’re BEGGING for issues. I utilize Webroot Antivirus/Antispyware and Spybot Search and Destroy (free). In case you’re depending entirely on “free” projects for your PC security, you’re likely committing a major error.

You’ll at that point be conveyed to a screen where you will utilize the bolt keys to pick the boot mode. Utilize the bolt up or down key to pick SAFE MODE. Press enter and let Windows do it’s thing. At the point when the PC has completely booted, finish FULL SYSTEM examines with your antivirus and antispyware programs. When they are finished, reboot the PC, regularly.
