I have purchased genuine several virus removal software but it is not that effective than what i expect. I have tried norton, avg, bitdefender, eset and a lot more but my computer are always prone for viruses. I'm not satisfied of the services they promised. My computer often encounters different problems and having been affected by this malware and viruses. What is the use of this virus removal software? They just give me a virus instead. Can anyone suggest virus software that is proven to be more effective than what i have mentioned?

Do you have Windows system? Or another system? I have Windows XP ... So I usually go to Microsoft.com website they have a free online virus scan called Windows Defender or something it will take a long time for it to run through it also clears cache and other stuff. Run that through ones and have it remove as much as you can. I also recommend Avast free virus scan This works well to help remove viruses... But going to majorgeeks.com They have a forum with recommendations of all kinds of free and paid programs that can help you clean out and tune up your computer system.... One that really helped my system is called Malebytes or antimaleware...Hope I spelled it right I am not on my computer at the moment.. Also ccleaner and Windows cleanup ups clear the history and cake.. Make sure you do disk defrag... And another one that really helped was combofix... But Please Please, do not use any programs without fully reading and making sure you understand how to use them...and always save a system backup... You can back up some files for free by using box.net Make sure you also write down a list of all of your programs too... in case you do lose everything usually if the viruses are at least quarantened you should be okay... Also do research on the files before you delete or remove them to make sure you not removing a file you need... I am not a computer employee or techee but I had to remove of 200 viruses off my machine when I got it back from my sister it took literally 1 hr to start it up that is how bad it was... Also make sure you go to add remove programs and remove the programs you know for sure you do not use.. IF you do not know what the program is Leave it alone so you do not remove something you do not need.. Hope that helps :) . - DNatureofDTrain

I am now using Avira Antivirus. It is a free antivirus. So far, it is quite good and it can detect viruses effectively. I really recommend this antivirus because it is quite powerful.

I have been using avg, the free edition for a few years and I didn't have problems until recently when I got hit by a virus and avg never even noticed it. I downloaded avast and it cleaned out the virus and I have not had any problem since. I hope this lasts a long time. I don't like viruses. Cheers!!

You have not tried the free version of avira antivir.Its the best antivirus.IT also has a guard to protect from infected pen drives and zip files.It also protects us from online virus sites.It scans the computer very fast.It also has regular updates from the internet.The premium version has a spyware remover and firewall.

Hey there! I have also tried norton and avg. I also tried mcafee and nod32. You can't fully protect yourself from every threat out there. New viruses come out everyday and it's hard for anti-virus companies to catch all of them. One of the most efficient virus scanners for me is Avast! Home edition. It allows for boot time scanning so that you can scan before your OS boots up.
