    Of course there are free tools that you can use to fix errors on your computer, to clean up virus, trojans, adware, and other crud that gets onto your Windows-based computer. But you probably don't have the time or the energy to download, install, and learn how to use them.

    1st problem: You can use either Avast, Avira, Panda, AVG, or the built-in Windows Defender

    2nd problem: You can use CCleaner, and Spybot Search and Destroy, and SUPERAntispyware, and SpywareBlaster to clean up your computer's Windows Registry and all the other non-virus stuff that plagues many Windows users' computers.

    There are even free tools that you can use to create a bootable rescue disk that you can use to boot your computer, making it possible to get at the malware without Windows running, and to clean up that malware.

    There is no dearth of information on the Internet about the topic of keeping your Microsoft Windows-based computer clean, pristine, highly functional, and useful.

    Whether you're using Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, 7, or 8, you can find excellent guides to these operating systems here: http://www.tweakguides.com/TGTC.html. I loved the TweakGuides for XP/Vista/7 so much that after I read the free "regular" versions, I bought the "deluxe" versions. Koroush Ghazi (the author of the entire series of Windows TweakGuides) is AWESOME.

    If you're using Microsoft Windows 10, Koroush Ghazi will likely NEVER produce a TweakGuide for it. His reasoning is here: http://www.tweakguides.com/newsarch_mar16.html#NoW...

    Fixes errors = reinstall windows or update software/drivers

    removes malware = Malwarebytes

    Keep in mind that viruses in particular are best protected against instead of removing(IE block them before they infect you). The reasoning is that viruses can prevent proper antivirus/malware installations or corrupt them so that they don't work. Re-installation is the only way to 100% guaranteed way to remove viruses. This is fact

    Yes - there are plenty - among the very best is SuperAntiSpywear - it's free.

    And there's OIbit Malware Fighter - also free.

    Super AntiSpywear - make sure you download the 'free' version - hit the green download button.

    https://www.superantispyware.com/

    Obit Malware Fighter - check these links - take your time then download the one you want.

    https://www.searchlock.com/search?safe=&start=0&qn...

    Finally, visit Majorgeeks - where you can see and download all manner of software Free. Check everything before downloading - make sure it's free and also that it suits your computer and etc.

    https://duckduckgo.com/?q=majorgeeks&t=h_&ia=video...

    I've been using downloads from Majorgeeks for years - just before what you want is free - check through the entire list in the section you want to be sure.

    Also remember to clean your computer daily don't leave it for a week during which time crap builds up.

    One final point - did you know that Google have an encrypted searcher? You'll have to find that at the Google website and then download a link and use it to keep anyone from knowing where you've been online etc.

    Finally, no really finally - did you know you can use a spread sheet to keep all your internet links in?

    You'll need to practise doing this but you simply hit the 'insert hyperlink' button and it then stores that link in the slot you placed it in.

    You'll find out by trial and error - it works, believe me.

    Use CCleaner to cleanup the PC and then install a virus protection program like Avast so future viruses will be filtered.

    You can use Malwarebytes to remove spyware / popups, etc.

    Reboot to safe mode with networking, then download, intall, update and run it.

    Anthony is talking about Avira, which is popular but not necessarily the best. I use Avast as my Antivirus program.
