Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

Ok guys.  This is for my friends who need a little assistance in removing spyware/pop-ups on their PC.  It's a really simple program to use, and I've included a 5 minute tutorial on how to use it. (not done by me).

Honestly it is pretty straight forward.  The best way to prevent this from happening is common sense (as was stated numerous times in the comments in my previous blog post).  Please don't click on anything in facebook that seems slightly strange.  Don't go downloading files from places you do not trust.  Be proactive.  you can save yourself alot of time and hassle by being safe and scanning.  Make sure you update the software before every scan.  Malwarebytes has defintely helped me assist people with their infection problems.  It isn't a cure-all, but it works great, and it is free!

I had this problem until I switched to linux. Fortunately I can go by without any Windows specific applications, but don't know what about you.

Actually fooling around with Ubuntu nbr and joliOS on my netbook right now. They are pretty interesting. Don't know if I'm ready foe the full switch but its a great learning tool for sure.

I'd love to make the switch to Mac, if I didn't have to sell a kidney to buy one. I like my kidneys....

Big fan of MBAM. I put on every computer within ten feet of me at any given time. Excellent post and tutorial. You should post a tutorial on ccleaner next.

Also- I love Ubuntu. Running v10.10 on my laptop. Great program- I just wish vendors would come around on driver support.
