How To Use Microsoft Malware Removal Tools

When a malicious software infiltrates your computer, it can do a myriad of damage to your system. Some malicious software like adwares take control of your computer's host file and alters it so that your web browser redirects your online surfing to advertisements. This way more malicious software could enter your system from the sites redirected to. To solve this problem, you must remove the malicious software from your computer first. Microsoft and other companies offer free solutions to get the job done.
The following Microsoft tech support guidelines will tell you how to use some of the few Microsoft’s malware removal tools.

      Microsoft Security Essentials
  • Download the Security Essentials antivirus tool from Microsoft official website by clicking the Download Now button. Then clicking the Save button when the dialog prompt appears. Click the Next button and send the downloaded file to a location on your computer.
  • Double-click the antivirus file and confirm your operating system by selecting the Windows system that you are currently using in your computer. Click Yes and Next after reading the product agreement.
  • Click Validate to ensure that your version of Windows is legal and legitimate. The tool will install and run updates. Don't interrupt this process and proceed only when it is finished.
  • Click the Home tab. After this, you must choose your virus scanning preference. If you want a thorough scan of all of your files, folders and programs, click Full. To start the Full Scan, click the Scan button. Click the Clean Computer button to remove the virus problem from your computer.
Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool
  • Go to the Microsoft Download Center from Microsoft official website and click Run. Read over the Microsoft product clause and if you agree to it, click I Agree.
  • Select your scan preference by clicking Full Scan. Unlike Quick Scan, Full Scan searches all files, folders, components and applications for malicious software. To start the Full Scan, click Next.
  • View the viruses detected by the tool by clicking the View detailed results of the scan link after the scan is finished. Click the Finish button to expel the virus and disinfect your computer.
If this still doesn’t fix your problem, you can get in touch with the Microsoft tech support team and get more assistance.
