Reinstall everything, use Avira and Malwarebytes, scan regularly, DON'T BE AN IDIOT.

Thanks for the advise cocksuckers. If i download malwarebytes will it fix current problems or just prevent future ones?
>>
>>675698355
get a paid antivirus, best investment ive ever had, since i starting paying I havent got a single virus. Even if you download something sus with a virus it gets caught straight before anything happens. I use Kaspersky
>>
>>675702002
malwarebytes will take off your current problems, run it in future for future problems
>>
>>675702002
You can always clean virus's off your computer it takes alot of doing though, usually its done in SAFE mode. It's sometimes easier just to start again with a fresh install of windows (formatting the drive not just reinstalling windows).
>>
>>675698355
IT fag here,
Get MalwareBytes
&
AVG2016 or 15 idk if they updated to 16 alrdy
They are both free for 30 days and will leave yo shit good af
Also recommend AdBlock, clicking some ads can give you Malware
>>
>>675702662
Are you a wizard?
>>
>>675698355

Usually doing a fresh install is better than cleaning
up your PC manually. You can download Malwarebytes and SUPER from Ninite, they're good at cleaning alot. SUPER is good for browser stuff and Malwarebytes for everything else.
You can watch Mark Rusinovich's talk on how to use sysinternals to manually clean up viruses, removing persistence, identifying suspicious and/or malicious programs and processes. But in most cases, just do a fresh install, anything else is usually not worth it.

>>675702696

> usually its done in SAFE mode
Obvious fucking retard. You don't know anything about this shit if you don't even know it's safemode, not SAFE mode. Fucking moron..
>>
>>675703694
fyi, ive got a bachelors in network security, I know exactly what its called, its 2 seperate words, I capitalized the safe to put emphasis on it
>>
>>675702959
Sound like lazy IT fag.

You don't just run that shit and say your done.

Antivirus software is extremely bad at catching malware, you always need to either manually clean up well, or do re-install. And even in the case of re-installs malware can still persist, altho rarely.

Anyways, don't just run antivirus and think you're safe. Lazy twat.
>>
>>675703694
>You don't know anything about this shit
>Says a fresh install is better than actually removing the viruses

Kek you sound like that IT technition that is self employed because he doesnt know shit and just reinstalls OS when he faces a problem he cant fix.
>>
>>675704028
Sure you do.

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.

So that means I know everything about military operations. After all, nobody lies on the internet.

>>675698355
just get your LTC, buy a gun, and leave your house for once.
>>
>>675704367

I'm actually saying that cleaning up viruses to the extent where you are 99% sure EVERYTHING is gone is USUALLY not worth it, TIMEWISE. As opposed to doing a fresh install.
>>
>>675704137
Yah, Im CompTIA IC3 certified, and yes I know some antivirus wont pick up Malware which is why I recommended Malwarebytes and AVG

Malwarebytes & CCleaner
I charge people to install and run these programs and they're free.

> Implying using two antivirus programs is ALOT better than using one. Upload known malware or known malware hashes to virustotal and se how many of the top anitivirus solutions that fail the find known malware that is years old.

Are you willing to pay? If so, get Norton or McAfee. If not, I'd say Avast or someshit.

If you're willing to pay for Antivirus software look into nod32 by eset software.

I can almost see your pathetic overweight frame glowing in the dark, lit by your computer screen which is the only source of light in your room, giggling like a like girl as you once again type your little Banana thread up and fill in the captcha. Or maybe you don’t even fill in the captcha. Maybe you’re such a disgusting NEET that you actually paid for a 4chan pass, so you just choose the picture. Oh, and we all know the picture. The “epic” Banana guy, isn’t it? I imagine you little shit laughing so hard as you click it that you drop your Doritos on the floor, but it’s ok, your mother will clean it up in the morning. Oh, that’s right. Did I fail to mention? You live with your mother. You are a fat fucking fuckup, she’s probably so sick of you already. So sick of having to do everything for you all goddamn day, every day, for a grown man who spends all his time on 4chan posting about a fucking banana. Just imagine this. She had you, and then she thought you were gonna be a scientist or an astronaut or something grand, and then you became a NEET. A pathetic Bananafag NEET. She probably cries herself to sleep everyday thinking about how bad it is and how she wishes she could just disappear. She can’t even try to talk with you because all you say is “I REALLY REALLY LIKE THIS PICTURE.” You’ve become a parody of your own self. And that’s all you are. A sad little man laughing in the dark by himself as he prepares to indulge in the same old dance that he’s done a million times now. And that’s all you’ll ever be.

Just pirate an iso of Windows and run out and buy an 8gb usb stick. Reinstall Windows and wipe your drive during the installing then install Windows back on it. If you have files you want to keep buy two usb sticks.

You have to be pretty stupid to get malware in 2016 btw.

Hey OP, if you were getting a game, here's a few tips!

>don't be a dumb, poor nigger and torrent shit
>also, get your games from Steam
>If your getting a non-Steam game and you don't know the real site, go on the creator's social media, and get to the game's site with help from their social media, or just click the first search result
