i mean security apps! i got a friend with a really infected computer and i got malwarebytes and superantispyware ready on a Flash drive. and it need to be under 3 gigabytes because only 3 gigabytes is left on flash drive.

UPDATE 1: i got back from her house and malwarebytes was so long on a quick scan AND it didn't detect anything! P.S. i tryed SAS but when i pressed scan the computer RANDOMLY TURNED OFF!

That should be all you need COMODO Cleaning Essentials would help though.

I can't recommend enough Malwarebytes. That and Avast combined and nothing is likely to get into your computer, at least in my experience with using these two programs for over a year with no issues.

AVG Free. Then use CCleaner to clear all the temp and other stuff.

I heard CCleaner sometimes hurts your comp? No?

It's never hurt mine. I don't see how it could. I've used it on Windows XP, 98, and 7 and it's never hurt a thing.

Sorry man i got avast 6 install on the flash drive and i am part of bleepingcomputer so i don't trust reg. cleaners.

(Apr 23 '11 at 20:17) bailey0799 bailey0799's gravatar image

Just do an analyse before clicking run. It will list all the files that it will delete. Also, there is a registry cleaner, but it is not ran with the main cleaner.

@Bailey0799 If you are part of Bleeping Computer, then you should know about Combofix. That program has been a godsend.

If it's not that infected, Malwarebyte's should take care of it. If not, then it is that infected.

First of all you cant but "Security" and "Windows" in the same sentence. Second XP is sorta out dated...so if possible update to a Win 7. Third: AVG FREE is a good piece of software along with COMODO.

I don't know why people say to use AVG when (in my experience at least) it uses a LOT more memory than most other programs when it's running and it slows me down dramatically.... Malwarebytes is a good choice. You may want to get Doctor Spyware Cleaner (also free... Use it as a backup) too.

You are right about AVG but Malwarebyte's is not a replacement for an antivirus.

I just think MSE is perfect. MSE=Microsoft Security Essentials
