How to keep your computer clean 6-7

6. Use an antivirus software.
Don't worry if you don't want to buy one, you can find free versions (for personal usage) as well. (Try AVG or Avira). This will enable the "scanning on demand" of files, which will instantly block any virus before affecting anything your computer. Remember to update it every week at least and to run a full system scan after every update.

7. Use spyware and adware search and removal tools.
These can be found in free versions too. You can use for example AVG Spyware removal and Ad-aware. Another good (and free) program is SpyBot Search&Destroy. Besides searching and destroying any spyware as the name implies, it has a system imunization tool which will make your system ignore in the future all the bad software the application knows (currently about 65000 malicious software types as far as i remeber).
