    I would advise against this. Too many users get a tool like CCleaner and use all of the options it comes with without entirely understanding what they are doing, which can result in more harm than good. If your after security for browsers run things like Adblock Plus, NoScript and so on.

    As I mentioned before, if you choose to do things like online banking, get a good antivirus which has a premium feature. Do not purchase, install or rely on mcafee or norton, they are trash filled with bloatware. To be even more secure get malwarebytes, and avoid sketchy websites.

    I can't reiterate this enough - if you don't know what you are doing with a tool that can cause harm to the registry, DO NOT mess with it.

    ADW Cleaner from Malwarebytes is the best for me. I deleted all the popup banners via this app.

It looked like it was coming from a 'My Computer' interface with it saying i had all of these trojans and it looked like they were all downloading themselves real fast. It asked me if i wanted to go to the site to download the anti-trojan/virus software, but i clicked no, and exited out of the window completely.

    I downloaded Malware Bytes and ran AVG Antivirus which didn't detect anything. Is this a scam? I couldn't tell if it came from my AVG detecting it, or if it was some internet scam. I'm leaning towards the latter, but what i don't get is if its a scam how can these guys get away with a fake worm screen then selling their supposed antivirus as a result?

    I hope this was clear but if not reply and i'll try and clear up any questions.
    it's a fact that if you are working on a computer on a daily basis then you need to install a suitable antivirus so that you can work in a clear way..

    No matter the topic, someone will find a way to redirect it to complain about their current aggro.

    You can get by well enough with a modern browser, addblock and some common sense. I've been using this system for 3-4 years now, and it's squeaky clean. And I mean heavy use, including torrents and porn, you name it. I've jumped around with AVs in the past, always finding them lacking. Last one I've used was bit defender, since is seem to do all the "big boys" did, without being annoying. But about 2 years back it became slow and bloated, so I just uninstalled and never bothered to replace it.

    I did the same thing -- It has been uninstalled from my computer.
