  • Malwarebytes anti malware

    Avira antivirus

    Both are free and both are really good

  • When's the last time you deleted all the cookies? Or did a defrag? Do that plus do the malware scans the others have suggested. And tell the BF not to download any more porn on your computer! Even virtual pussy can give you a virus! lol :p

  • You can also do a system restore. It will take you computer back to a "good" configuration. AVG/avast antivirus is some of the best free stuff around. Malwarebytes is some of the best antimalware around too.


    Avast


    Malwarebytes
