    Good virus remover like Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware?


    Are there any good virus remover like Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware? My friend also use this and he got a virus that does not let him run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware so he had to delete everything off his computer. I'm afraid something like this might happen to me so are there any alternatives to Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware?

    Welcome
    I use Microsoft Security Essentials
    Malwarebytes
    Win Patrol
    The windows firewall
    and the Eset online scanner, and am very comfortable.

    Very welcome
    Sandiebox is different from anything that you tried
    oh yes
    I also have a pseudo anti malware, win patrol, but it serves many purposes. I sugges tthat you look into that one, too.

    Hello!

    Firstly, there are a vast number of tips and tricks on staying malware free here: Preventing Malware and Safe Computing

    However, if something does come your way, contact us, or a security expert, and we can fix most scrapes without resorting to deleting everything (formatting, as your friend did)

    If your security won't run try renaming it to anything random first.

    I suggest Superantispyware. It found things that Malwarebytes did not find. I also suggest to keep a few of those scanners on a USB stick and run them from there in safe made if everything else fails.

    +1 for Super-AntiSpyware
    It finds things Spyware Blaster misses
    I put it on all computers I work on.
    It looks for different thing than those MalwareBytes looks for.
    MalwareBytes looks for malicious software,Trojans,viruses
    Super is more for Tracking cookies and spyware.
