    • Enable free trial of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium
    • Launch Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, you will be prompted to download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select Scan now. Or select the Threat Scan from the Scan menu.

  • Reboot your computer if prompted.
Is there anything else I need to do to get rid of ActSys?
  • No, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware removes ActSys completely.
How would the full version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware help protect me?
