Removal of viruses

Viruses are the most common reason for the lagging performance of your computer. A computer virus is a malicious software program loaded onto a user’s computer without the user’s knowledge and performs malicious actions like deleting, duplicating, sharing music, files, or photos with other users, visiting an infected website, opening spam email or an email attachment, downloading free games, installing mainstream software applications all without users permission.

In order to deal with viruses, a computer program called Anti-Virus is used to prevent, detect, and remove the malware from PC. In Win7 and previous versions than that, external anti-virus like Norton, Avast, Bitdefender etc were required to get rid of the malware from PC. But with the launch of Win8, a full antivirus program replaced Microsoft Security Essentials and was named Windows Defender Security Center that monitors the computer for malicious activities. To use Windows Defender, go to Setting> Updates and Security> Windows Security or simply Search for ‘Windows Defender’ in Search Box.
