I think we are all done. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask. Next will follow my standard end response. Please read through this, as it contains a lot of information about preventing malware in the future. Make proper use of your anti-virus and firewall
Anti-virus and Firewall programs are integral to your computer security. However, just having them installed isn't enough. The definitions of these programs are frequently updated to detect the latest malware. If you don't keep up with these updates, you'll be vulnerable to infection. Many anti-virus and firewall programs have automatic update features. Turn the automatic updates on if your programs have them. If your program doesn't, then get in the habit of routinely performing manual updates, because it's important.
You should keep your anti-virus and firewall guard enabled at all times. NEVER
turn them off unless there's a specific reason to do so. Also, regularly performing a full system scan with your anti-virus program is a good idea to make sure you're system remains clean. Once a week should be adequate. You can set the scan to run during a time when you don't plan to use the computer and just leave it to complete on its own.Antispyware programs:I would recommend the download and installation of some or all of the following programs (all free), and the updating of them regularly
