i am a long time lurker, first time poster, i have downloaded many programs from here,
i do computer repair and service calls to peoples homes as a part time job, alot of the calls i go to are people with slow computers and/or viruses, people are paying by the hour so i like to be as efficient as possible at the calls,
i will list my general procedure below for these cases and would appreciate any feedback on programs you think i should add or remove to my list.....
1 - i use ccleaner to clean up the hard drive, and disable any programs that are not nessessary at startup
2 - i run adwcleaner
3 - i run JRT
4 - i run malwarebytes
5 - (time permitting) i will run a scan with an antivirus program
after that i will check other performance settings on the computer to make sure they are correct,
is this a good general procedure to use? it seems to be working very well, anything i should add, replace, or remove?
also, if they dont have an antivirus program i will install one for them, i normally install AVG or avast just because i am most familliar with them and there settings, any others you guys would recommend?.....i have recently heard good things about microsoft essentials? but i wouldnt really consider that an effective antivirus program all by itself, or is it?
thanks in advance, love this site!
