    Stupid Windows 10 Viruses


    Hi Guys,
    I've just updated my pc to Windows to Windows 10 a few days ago and ever since I upgraded I've been getting so much Malware on my PC, and when I remove them all the next day there is more and more Viruses! So I was wondering if anyone knew what is happening.

    Thanks,
    Randy

    Can you tell us what viruses you are encountering? Have you done any steps to fight it? You are welcome to upload screenshots of your screen so that we have a better idea with what you are fighting with. If you recently installed windows you are welcome to do a system refresh which will likely eliminate any viruses along with your files and start from fresh.

    You don't have any anti virus protection working or installed it appears. Refresh installation or (recommended) clean install win10 after saving as much of your valued files as you can. Before proceeding to launch windows and immediately hit the web make sure you have at the minimum "WINDOWS DEFENDER". Then visit only trusted sites for a good anti-virus program. Many examples are give in this forum. Don't open the saved files from your first win 10 installation until you have done a security scan on them to be sure they are not infected file.

    Be sure the programs you d/l are coming, if at all possible, directly from the source. Anytime you use a host site, such as Cnet, you risk the site adding unwanted goodies. This article shows a good example of what happens when you d/l from such a site.

    Heres What Happens When You Install the Top 10 Download.com Apps

    Malwarebytes (the free version) can help keep your system clear. Be sure to uncheck the "start free trial" box after installation is finished. If you wish to opt for the pro version, that features active background scanning & automatic updates.

    Be aware of where you go online & that visiting questionable websites can result in drive by downloads, that will infect your system without you knowledge.

    You may wish to check if your system is infected with a rootkit. TDSSKiller is a good tool to check for this.

    Note   Note
    When running TDSSKiller, launch the program, click on the blue text "Change Parameters" & check the box marked "Detect TDLFS File system." Click OK & then run the scan.

    Got to take a breather from the hardcore porn bud , i know how unbearable that must sound but contrary to popular belief humans can survive ( up to five minutes, although have not verified myself) without hardcore porn .

    Porn sites are malwares home base .

    I disagree. You don't have to visit "pr0n" sites to get infected these days. Any other seemingly innocuous sites can be more dangerous.
