Hello. Thanks for those suggestions on software to install. I do have one question about them: are all these programs compatible with each other (that is if I installed all of them will that cause any problem on how they run/how my computer runs)?  If not then which ones can I install if I already installed TFC, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Anti-Exploit? If they can all be installed, then just say so and I will download all of them.

 

Thanks again Naat!

Oh and also DelFix removed AdwCleaner, should I reinstall that as well, to clean out adware? Or just not bother with it?

Hi :)

 

The software I have posted earlier my be installed altogether without any known conflicts. 

 

I don't recommend usind AdwCleaner on your own. Automatic cleaners rather leave some stuff that needs to be taken care with manual fixes...

Alright i have finished downloading and setting up all of the programs you requested and I read all of the documents you told me to read. I think I will be much better off on the web with what you've suggested. Thanks for everything Naat.

 

I'm sorry, but i can't donate to you because I'm not exactly "financially stable" right now and only have a little bit of cash to my name, so sorry Naat. I really would like to, but I don't think it would be very good for to donate to you right now. Maybe some time in the future I will, but not right now.

 

Thanks for helping me again, Naat!
