    For malware, use Malwarebytes. It has never let me down. Virus scanning software doesn't seem to pick up malware very well. Free version is fine.

    Once my virus scanner has done its probably last run through the system, Malwarebytes is the next thing on my "to do" list...

    Malwarebytes is good. I don't use Norton or Macaffee, resource hog.
    I use Windows Defender, Windows Malicious software Removal tool, Ad-Aware, Spybot Search and Destroy, and Malware Bytes.
    I run them once a week, no issues, ...

    Let me explain: yesterday a piece of malware called a "Trojan Horse" found its way past my computers protection. My virus scanner did NOT alert me when it happened, it merely started giving warnings later on, claiming it had found and deleted it, for the warning only to keep up popping up again and again. Which, for one thing, means I must go shopping for a better virus scanner, and I probably will have to reinstall my system from scratch, losing valuable data (and equally valuable time).
    But miss_morgana phrased it way more poignantly...
    Just download from piratebay AVG 2014..

    Most virus infections are non detrimental (unless you are a multi $M business) and most if not all can be removed by yourself. It is impossible to prevent therefore save your cash and learn how to remove them. Most users couldn't even run an expensive registry cleaner without rendering their device useless! At best Norton, Mcaffe and all the rest only excel at slowing performance down to impossible speeds.

    I don't know what are you lot like.
    I love your brain, big kiss on it

    Very good but most downloads from pirate Bay contain their own virus/Malware within them. Once again well done?

    So is there an easy way to check, when the virus scanning software I pay good money for every year, isn't able to get rid of it?
    What OS are you running? There are certainly virus removal programs available or perhaps it would be easier to take the machine somewhere.

    S*O*M's suggestion of replacing the hard disc sounds good but you would have to reinstall the operating system and if you reloaded pictures and documents from a backup how do you know they aren't contaminated.

    Do you know how and when the virus entered your system?

    What security program are you using?

    More like a $25.00/session "Vendor" during Mardi Gras..............

    You'll get something.......Usually more that what you bargained for......A "Gift" that keeps on giving.....

    As I stated the chances of having the type of virus where this would be non existent unless the cannibal is telling us fibs about his status in life. There is no virus that you cannot remove yourself?

    True, but some are harder than others to extract, and then there is "The Root Kit", that once in a while makes the rounds.....

    Windows Defender is of course included at least with Win 7. I had the free version of Ad Aware but they kept bugging me to upgrade and Windows Defender and Ad Aware seemed to clash so I removed Ad Aware. I also have Norton.

    A couple of months back I got an email which was purportedly from my daughter and opened an attachment. I then discovered I had been phished. Pressing on the sender address I found the source. But since I opened it on my Playbook I did not contaminate my computers.

    Yep it's cold but the beer doesn't get warm.

    Finally some apps coming for the chromecast yesterday. Rooted the Sero and have it running everything in the house and I'm quite pleased with the combo thus far. My playbooks getting less and less use by the day.
