If your computer is infected with trojans, keyloggers, and hijackers, you are probably asking the question “how do I get rid of malware?” Today, I will answer that question for you.
But before I answer your questions of “how do I get rid of malware” I want to discuss what malware is, and some of the problems it causes. The term malware is short for malicious software. It is also known as spyware. It comes in a number of different forms. Does your computer stop responding to program or system commands? That’s a sign that it is infected with malware. Another sign is if you are often receiving unusual error messages or pop up windows. Other common signs of malware are distorted menus and dialog boxes, the home page on your web browser has changed and you were not the one who changed it, and you have a loss of disk space on your computer that you cannot explain.
But the most serious type of malware is the type that spies on your internet activities, including financial transactions that you might make. You can easily be the victim of identity theft if your computer has malware on it. And there is a good chance that some type of malware is on your computer, considering that nine out of ten internet users have an infection. The sad thing is, most people do not even know their computer has malware on it, because malware does a very good job of hiding itself.
