I'm new here and also I know very little about protecting my laptop. I just know to download a software and run it...
So, as before my laptop got so bad virused I had to format it again (with an HP customare care officer) , after that I had to be very careful in this matter. I had Norton Antivirus which just finished 3 months trial. From HP they adviced me to download & use Spyware Doctor (trial version) who detected more than 200 infections and who won't clean them unless I purchase the product!! I don't know how was possible as Norton was running all the time...
Anyway, main problem is: HOW I REMOVE THESE INFECTIONS:
Known Bad Sites
Recipe Rewards Toolbar
There is any secure method from any safe link for free? I have no idea if they are very harmful, but they may be...as they shouldn't be there is my laptop.
Second: there is any GOOD & SAFE ANTIVIRUS SOFTWARE (if not for life time , at lest for few years) to be downloaded for free or everything must be purchased ??
Waiting for a professional response as all my work depends on the information stored in this laptop.
