    Thanks,
    I am going to erase the WHOLE hard drive completely with the DISKPART Command "Clean All." It erases every bit of your hard drive with Zeros to complete with Unallocated Space.
    Now, can anyone answer the previous question?
    Kind Regards,
    MSM

    Avast does have a network scanner so you should run that. But run a full scan on your Dad's computer first then a network scan. You can also scan with MBM as mentioned above and also look at SuperAntiSpyware for spyware and malicious cookies.

    I've run all the scans, looks fine to me, nothing has been identified as Malicious. Will my method work too? What do I do now?

    Infections, obviously. Umm, my Dad with very little knowledge of using devices and antiviruses (Applies to my sister, mum and brother too). We also have like 2 devices each which means double infections!

    Hi I have altogether 8 devices all on Wi-Fi and all have Antiviruses installed and Antimalware and not one has become infected.
    So my suggestion is scan and make sure all bug free, keep all Antiviruses and Antimalware updated and you should be ok,

    Pardon me to press the issue of " So what makes you think there is a problem? "

    Why do you think there is infection ?
    You have proof for that ?
    Did any of your AV ( Avast and Malwarebytes) catch any viruses while scanning ?

    As I have previously explained, the Anti-Virus softwares have not caught any Viruses, that is good. I have previously asked, will my method explained in a previous post work/be good enough?
    Kind Regards,
