Hi, I am Noah. And today I am going to tell you about how to get rid of malware and adware. Malware is a very dangerous type of adware where information that you type into your computer or saved on to your computer can be retrieved by a third user and used against you. For example, if you type in your credit card number on the internet malware could retrieve the number and somebody could then gain access to it. To remove adware and malware from your computer, you will need to download a program like spybot search and destroy which you can get for free from www. safer-networking.org or another program like adware which is also free. You can download adware from www. lavasoft.com/products/ad_aware_free.php. Also if you have an anti-virus program nowadays a lot of anti-virus programs include protection against spyware, and often will take care of malware when you run a scan with them. Just make sure that your anti-virus program has an anti spyware as well. And then when you run it, see if it doesn't remove your malware which you have on your computer as well. Now, with any of these programs the thing is that you will be able to either schedule scans regularly or whenever you have some kind of big problem with your computer whether it's acting strange or just working very slowly you can run a scan yourself on these programs to remove any malware and adware that's been on your computer.
