Hi Everyone: Recently my computer is slowing to a crawl. I saw a TV ad called "Clean My PC" and purchased it.
This program ran a diagnostic and stated I have serious Malware and Virus's on my hard drive.
I use Avast Free download virus protection on my computer.
This Avast program has a "box" or "chest" which shows various infections over the years. This anti virus program has alerted and blocked many problem over the years.
I used "Clean my PC program which cleans my "registry" files and problems. It also recommended I BUY AN ADDITIONAL SERVICE FOR $179.00 SO THAT I CAN COMPLETELY REMOVE ALL THE MALWARE, VIRUS'S AND SPY STUFF FROM MY HARD DRIVE! The additional costs give me protection for only 30 days. Then for additional sum I can have "removal service?" for up to a year. To me this is outrageous !
The "Clean my PC" telemarketing tells me that the cost is fair since taking all of my malware, viruses, spy whatever takes specialists many hours. IS THIS TRUE ???
My question: Is there a program that can remove all of the Virus infections, Malware infections, Spy infections PERMANENTLY from my hard drive? Remove stuff permanently versus putting in a "locker" where it remains on my hard drive?
Also, will this removal of bugs, speed up my computer AFTER Permanent REMOVAL OF THIS STUFF ON MY HARD DRIVE?
Can I buy one program and simply use it over and over again and let it run and do it's job by PERMANENTLY REMOVING my bugs from my hard drive?
How I use my computer: Daily emails, read the news, and one "On-line" Christian ministry service. I don't play video games and other stuff. I don't download super fancy stuff or have skype, fax, phone on the internet, yada-yada.
In your answers to me, please speak in terms that are simple, no abbreviations, and assume I do not know anything beyond "login and logout". If you would be so kind, please give me simple steps as to how to locate and execute these solutions? Feel free to copy my statements and then post your answers after each question mark punctuation.
