Report malicious downloads
If you're concerned that a site you visited downloaded malicious software onto your computer, please follow these steps:
- Remove the malicious programs from your computer. If you're concerned that you've inadvertently acquired some malicious software on your computer, please read our recommendations for cleaning up your system.
- Report the site.
- Submit a malicious software report to tell us about any site that installs unwanted programs on your computer. We're sorry that you had a bad experience with a site in our search results, and your report will help us improve the quality of our results. While we don't always take action on individual sites as a result of these reports, please be assured that these reports are submitted directly to our engineers, who use the information to make large-scale improvements to our system.
- File a complaint with StopBadware.org if you feel you were deceived when you installed a program that creates popups or modifies your browser. StopBadware.org provides users with tools and information to help stop the spread and influence of malicious spyware on their computers and the internet.
