  1. Pop up shows my PC infected with Malwares


    I am suddenly receiving constant popups supposedly from antivirus programs telling me that my computer is infected and that I should download/run their program. I downloaded and ran the Windows Defender Emergency Scan application which while running identified "26 infected files" but when done identified "0" infections.

    Is there a popup blocker which I can use to stop this?

    Or is this just treating the symptoms, and if so is there something else I can / should do?

    Thanks.


    [Original Title: Popups]

    I was hoping someone could give me a list of step by step instructions you use as a guide to clean virus, malware...etc. so I can keep my PC clean if it gets infected.

    thx

    Hi:

    There is no one set of "boilerplate", "cookbook" or standard steps.
    Each computer is unique.
    Each malware infection is unique.
    Proper diagnosis, cleanup and repair depends on the particular infection and the system that is infected.
    The process can be tedious and time-consuming, often requiring the use of multiple powerful tools, in the proper sequence.
    Many of them can actually damage the system if deployed improperly by untrained computer users.

    Bottom line:
    Malware cleanup is best done with *customized* support provided by trained individuals who know what tools to use and how to use them.

    There are a few folks with such expertise here at this forum (I am not one of them).
    And there are a number of reputable computer disinfection fora where trained malware removal experts provide free, custom assistance.

    Cheers,
