I want to ask the Techyv users that why there is so much Spyware, Malware, Adware and Trojan viruses effecting the computer even though we just click an image or a particular add on any website.

These problems were not there some 5-6 years ago but now it has increased to a huge limit. When we click on any image on the Google image search or inside any blog or go to any website, our computers get affected by viruses.

Can you please tell me the reason and also the perfect cure for this problem?

The reason behind the Malware and viruses which are affecting the computers:

  1. Windows computers are very much vulnerable to get affected by viruses because every application runs on Windows platform and it also runs all the virus codes and malware bundled programs and because of this the Windows should be updated with the new releases, browsers java and flash also should be updated to keep the viruses away.
  2. People are unaware about the tricks which the Intruders use to get into the computer and they click on anything and everything that pops up. 
  3. The intruders and software programmers are getting much smarter, they know how to trick or users from phishing websites then fake emails, MITM attacks… etc.,
  4. There are many advertisements which assure that they will clean up your computer from many viruses like the one NetProtector 2011 which is itself a virus and if is a Trojan virus and it affects every folder and boot on the system and it is very difficult to remove such viruses.
  5. There are many software developers, record companies and movie companies which are fighting piracy and because of that they actually make use of programmers who write virus coding’s and they attach them to content and distribute if through p2p sharing which affects the computer and that user will never again use any pirated content.

I can only say that the user's should think before they click and they should not click on advertisements because they are the carriers or viruses, not to download pirated content because they also contain virus bundled into the content, and the last thing stay away from the free download illegal version sites which say that they offer good working serials and manipulated software but they are spreading viruses one example of such a website is "serialz dot com"

I told you about the preventive measures which should be taken care of while you browse internet in my first post to your question and prevention is more important than curing the data. Suppose if your computer is affected then you should first remove all the Malware, adware, and Spyware because Trojan viruses are not that easy to remove and it takes time, for that there are much software like Malware Bytes & Combo Fix, these two software’s are very much effective against Malware.

Then after you remove the Malware then you come to the Trojan viruses, these viruses take very much time to get removed because it affects every folder which is present on the computer and it is very much difficult to remove or delete that Trojan affected folder because Windows operating system is running and the Trojan is also running inside the processes and because of that the folder is not deleted, it says that the process is running and cannot be deleted, please try after sometime when the process is closed but after sometime the folder gets deleted but when u restart the computer again then you can find the Trojan affected folder again so all your efforts are of no use. 

For this we need a Antivirus which has an option of BOOT SCAN, I am talking about boot scan because the scan is done outside the windows when the computer starts and it is done in DOS prompt at that time all the Trojan affected files are not working and can be easily deleted and boot sectors are also scanned well. I think boot scan is only there in AVAST Antivirus , after the boot scan you should login to your computer then again do a normal scan before clicking any folder your computer gets cleaned 

According to the Market Norton Antivirus is the best Antivirus but there are many problems with Norton, it makes the computer slow and the RAM memory is mostly utilized by the Antivirus which don't give other programs their required space.
