    Malwarebytes & Superanti Spyware are the recommended software which you can easily download from the internet. Install it on your computer and then update and scan your computer with both Malwarebytes and uperantiSpyware. Delete what ever you find while scanning, if it fails to completely remove the virus/spyware from your pc,then download updated Avast antivirus software from the internet. Run a boot scan on your system which will remove all the viruses and spywares from your computer.(Click schedule boot-time scan and restart your PC)

    Follow the below steps in order to keep your computer free from viruses and spywares.

    * Keep your computer updated with the latest patches and updates antivirus softwares as soon as possible.

    * Make sure your computer is configured securely, especially when it comes to configuring your Web browser and email software. Security and privacy settings can often be configured without any special expertise, simply by using the "Help" feature of your software, or visiting the vendor’s web site.
