I'm searching for the post or tutorial that explained the steps to and programs for setting up protection for a new computer. I'm running Windows 8 and it came with 30 days protection from McAfee. I thought it was a year. Now I see that I've been unprotected for 8 days and I have some kind of adware since Pinterest will pop up randomly.
Malwarebytes used to be free indefinintely, but now it says it's out of date.I ran a scan with it even though it said it was out of date. It said I had no infection. I downloaded Adware and clicked to install. A window popped up saying that it was out of date, click continue or something to go to website for latest (the other option was cancel or close). When the page pulls up it's a 404 page.
Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this. Trying to protect this pc before I get any more problems. Can someone point me in the right direction?
