Removing malware from your computer
There are a variety of programs that can detect unwanted software installed on your computer and remove it. We have no connection with the companies below, so we can't comment on their programs' effectiveness, but trying any of these programs often makes a difference, as does having the latest versions:
- ESET Smart Security
- Kaspersky Lab Internet Security
- Lavasoft Ad-Aware
- MacScan (for Mac users)
- Microsoft Security Essentials
- Norton Internet Security
- Spyware Doctor
- Vipre Antivirus
If these programs don't resolve the problem, you can find additional assistance on the Web Search Help Center.
