Whether you’re a certified computer technician, the go-to family tech guy, or well a geek, I’ve put together the best tech tools to take with you on the go. These tech tools apply to what else? Getting rid of a virus! I’ve also included some other utilities to speed up the computer. Just save them to your USB thumb drive, flash drive, or portable external hard drive and you’ll be ready to go when tech disaster strikes next.
For computer viruses, install Norton Internet Security. If there’s a potential virus, remove the current antivirus software that’s not doing it’s job and install this free 30-day trial. Make sure to tell the computer user to renew the software for a year which is $70.
For antimalware and spyware, use Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. Be sure to update it and run the long spyware scan during it’s operation. By the way, it’s free which makes it a keeper! As you probably heard, one spyware program alone is usually not comprehensive. That being said, I recommend two other trusty spyware programs which are strong enough to get rid of some nasty viruses as well.
For rootkits and hard-to-remove viruses, work with ComboFix and Kapersky’s TDSSKiller.
For a system tune-up, you can download a free version of Comodo System Cleaner or pay $50 for a unlimited version of Iolo System Mechanic.
