If you have recently noticed that your computer is running slower than it did when you first got it then you are likely trying to figure out what is causing this problem. You may have even had friends suggest that using malware removal software would cause your system to speed back up.
Malware removal tools will help you to speed up your computer. You are not going to have the same speed that you had when the unit was brand new. When you first got the computer there were very few things on the hard drive, but since you have had it you have downloaded different applications, you have uploaded picture files, and video files, and music files. All of the files that you have put on the unit are slowing it down as well.
Good antivirus software can remove any of the malware on your computer that is known by the antivirus program you use. No antivirus program can recognize all spyware, Trojans, and malware. The people that create the malicious software are working twice as fast at creating new versions as the people who are working to create removal solutions.
This does not mean that your computer must always run really slow, or that you should not try and remove the infections that you have. You should get good antivirus software and run full computer scans to allow it to detect any problems that you may have.
Allow any Trojans or viruses that are found to be quarantined or removed according to the recommendation of the antivirus software. Be sure that you keep the antivirus program updated so that it can recognize more malicious files.
Your best defense against viruses is in the way that you use your computer. Make certain that any download you agree to has been checked for viruses. Free downloads are the easiest way for someone to plant a bug in your system. Music and video downloads contain the most Trojans and viruses.
Do not go to sites that have adult content. You will stand a better chance of getting a virus at a XXX site than anywhere on the internet. There are no safe XXX sites that are virus free.
Use your firewall. You have firewall protection to stop the malware from being installed on your system properly. If you do not have a firewall in place then make certain you get one.
