You can use the Microsoft’s newly launched anti-malware tool to clean your device from Trojans and viruses.

The Malicious Software Remover Tool by Microsoft is the latest best working utility to remove the malicious software and many more infections found.

The software works on Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7, Windows Vista, XP, Windows Server 2012, 2008 and almost all the Windows OS.

This anti-malware tool is available for download on Microsoft.com

However, if you are not good at this, you can try other programs also. These include

• AdwCleaner

• Zemana Anti-malware

• HitmanPro

• Malwarebytes

All these software are easy to use and implement. They provide a friendly UI and give you a step-by-step tutorial on how to scan your computer.

If you noticed that your computer is running very slow, there are only two possible causes: one, it is infected with a virus and two, the computer is not well maintained and the drives are heavily fragmented. To check if your computer is infected with a virus, download Sophos Virus Removal Tool.

When installing, wait until the program is finished updating its virus signature database and then scan your computer. In case it detects a virus, remove it and then repeat the scan until it no longer detects a virus. On the other hand, if the scan turned out to be clean, you probably just need to defragment your hard drive to improve its performance again.

You can use the built-in Disk Defragmenter of Microsoft Windows to defrag your drives. A less fragmented drive performs much faster than a heavily fragmented drive.
