One of the most common issues that people come to me for help with is the removal of malware from their computers.

The number of times this occurs has increased dramatically in the last few years, well I’ve decided to write-up a quick guide on how to remove the malware you have got.
There are so many tools and programs on the internet that offer to remove malware from your computer, some are free and some are expensive. There is only one program you need to remove malware and it’s free!
So now you have downloaded the only tool you need. Let’s begin removing your malware. If you are reading this post and looking to remove malware from your PC I would recommend printing it or loading it up on your tablet. Unless you have a great memory.
Download and install Malwarebytes Antimalware.
Launch Malwarebytes Antimalware and let it update.
Run a full scan.
Reboot in Safe Mode.
Repeat from Step 4.
Reboot as normal.
Run another full scan to be sure.
There you go. All fixed.
