How To Detect Spyware On Your Computer Using Basic Tools?


The three best ways of ensuring if any virus resides on the computer are as below. It is as follows:

1. Scanning:

It is the foremost step to check which spyware has attacked your PC, and which section it has affected the most. To start with this; first, you need to run your device in Safe Mode under system settings. Now, you can run some anti-spyware software to scan all the areas of your machine. The best tools that I recommend are

• Super Anti-spyware

• MalwareBytes Anti-malware

• Spybot

• Ad-Adware

It is advised to run these anti-viruses in the given order. Though the process is time-consuming, the user advantage is that they all are free, and repair and clean the infected areas thoroughly

2. You can use rescue disks such as Microsoft Defender, Bitdefender rescue disk, Kaspersky rescue disk, etc. to run the computer so that the infection does not affect the MS Windows.

3. Clean Install: It gives you the guarantee to get rid of malware and spyware. It is similar to doing a factory reset or to removing all the malware and spyware.
