McAfee isn’t so good antivirus and its users aren’t so satisfied about its performance. It’s definitely not so good. In order to remove the malware from your PC, you should try to use any other antivirus programs.

There are many good ones available on the web. The best ones are Norton, Kaspersky, Avira, Avast etc. They offer a good security and protection against almost all types of threats.

There are many deadly viruses that doesn’t wish to get themselves out of their home. In order to erase them, you must use something deadly, too. Norton Power Eraser, Kaspersky Rootkit tool will do this work.

Now, you’re free not to be anxious about your security anymore.

You probably downloaded Gtalk or Google Talk from an unknown source or from a rogue website that normally provides different downloads with malware on the side. There is actually no problem even if you downloaded an infected file. It will not immediately infect your machine. Your computer will only be infected if you run the infected file.

That’s the only time the infection starts and spreads on your system. If you are sure that your computer is already infected with a virus, download and install Sophos Virus Removal Tool. This tool is best used on computers that are already infected. When installing, don’t disconnect from the internet. The tool automatically updates its virus database at the end of the installation.

Once the installation and update is complete, start scanning your computer. The tool displays the result at the end of the scan. Remove all detected infection and repeat the scan. Repeat the scan until it no longer detects a virus. Just a reminder, the Sophos Virus Removal Tool is not an antivirus and is not meant to replace your antivirus.

It is only designed to remove malware. It doesn’t have real-time monitoring or real-time protection like what an antivirus provides. You don’t need to uninstall your existing antivirus application. It works alongside any antivirus program you may have. Google Talk is no longer offered as download. Google has replaced it with Hangouts. Try downloading it from Hangouts on Softonic.
