To discover swifter - type the word "remove".
  • The advice #1 to protect your system will be to forget about cracked software. When an utility is toll-free and you know for sure that it’s decent – just find it on the developer’s website, and there won't be any problems. In case of a pirated utility – you can only find it on torrents. You won’t download reliable protection there, and every file might contain a virus.

If the website's seems to suffer a critical error – quickly abort its process with the help of Process Manager, and you’ll be alright. No site is able to scan the PC for malware within a few moments and tell whether it is contaminated or not.
  • And, of course,, you should monitor the info that is shown while you're installing any toll-free program. We'd put it like this: you don’t need to the full License Agreement, but you should watch out for proposals to install any software except the desired utility. If you see such proposals – you’d better watch out.
