What is Malware and why do you need it?


Malware is any software intentionally designed to cause damage to a computer, server, client, or computer network. Malware does the damage after it is implanted or introduced in some way into a target’s computer and can take the form of executable code, scripts, active content, and other software. Wikipedia

How I got hit with Malware

At some stage in life this will happen to you.
I went to a local Government site seeking out details on a Seniors Card.
The first to pop up said seniors card so in my hurry I clicked. My mind was not as quick as my finger as I noticed it was a paid advertisement.
Too late but not to worry bail from that and go to the correct page.

That done I returned to my Home page only to find now that it was competely different. It had been taken over by a new search engin. Not a bad site but one I did not want.
They are very clever at this and target sights that have a vulnerable user profile

Search for a solution on Malware

Using my beaut new page I searched how to get rid of the problem. They did not want to tell me and led me down more rabbit holes that explained nothing.

I Cut across to my Firefox brouser and Googled a fix.
The usuall one go into Setting, choose programs and Delete the errant one.

But no, it is not there.

Enter Malware Bytes

Enter Malwarebytes

Anto Malware Free
My savior and recommendation

This is a program you can download and use it as a free service. They will hound you into going pro to have real time protection but being the cheapskate I am I had the free version.

It worked in 5 minutes

I loaded the software and set it scanning my entire computer, Took about 5 minutes and then I closed down the computer and restarted as instructed.
Malwarebytes had selected all the dirty bits and I just had to press delete.

There are many Malware programes

I looked at Spybot, Norton, IObits and Kaspersky but did not try them.

I run a current paid version of Norton Anti Virus but MalWare skips around it.

Why is anti malware free important to you?

It will happen to you one day when you least expect it. Just tuck this in the memory file and drag it out when you need it. Better still download the free version and have it resident on your computer like an insurance policy.

How do you know when you are infected

From Malwarebytes website


Does your web browser freeze or become unresponsive?
Do you get redirected to web pages other than the ones you are trying to visit?
Are you bombarded with pop-up messages?
Does your computer run slower than usual?
Do you see new icons on your desktop that you don’t recognize?

These are all classic signs of being infected.

What to do also taken from their website

Okay, I’m infected. What do I do now?
  • Remove CDs and DVDs and unplug drives from your computer. Restart in Safe Mode.
  • Download a proven malware scanner such as Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.
  • Disconnect from the internet. Then run a scan.
  • Follow Malwarebytes Premium’s instructions to remove any malware.
  • Restart your computer.
  • Update your operating system, browser, and applications if not current.
  • Reset all of your passwords.

Probably a bit of overkill but they do this as a business so we can only believe them.
