This guide will teach you how to easily clean a PC running Microsoft Windows.
Follow these simple steps to fix most problems caused by annoying pop ups and unwanted software. The whole process will take less than 40 minutes (bad cases will take up to 2 hours) and will leave your computer running smoothly especially if you have accumulated annoying pop ups and malware/viruses.
1) Download and run adwcleaner: This program has two buttons you need to use “scan” and “clean”. Cannot be any easier. It will scan your computer for annoying toolbars and pop ups and will clean them.
2) Download and install ccleaner: This program has two buttons you need to use “Analyse” and “Clean”. This programs will clear out unwanted temporary files that have accumulated. You might want to un-tick some of the check boxes to keep things such as recently typed url’s, however the default options are ok.
3) Download and install Malwarebytes Anti Malware: Once installed press the “Fix Now” button, once the scan is complete (20min-40min) click “remove selected” items. This program is an excellent tool for cleaning out any viruses/malware your antivirus software might have missed.
This guide touches only the very basics of pop up removal and virus/malware removal, you might want an experienced I.T. technician to perform a professional tune-up. There are many additional things that can and should be done to immunise and protect a computer from viruses, malware and pop-ups. Feel free to call or e-mail me for more information.
