You’ll hear me say it over and over again – you simply can’t run a computer now-a-days without some kind of antivirus or security software running in the background. You’re just asking for problems if you think you don’t need one…and if you get a virus, bug or worm, THEN what do you do?? This is why I’m thankful for applications like Zemana Anti-Malware. It’s a specialized malware scanner for Windows and it’s the kind that most people need.
Virus scanners are great a preventing infections, but on the off chance you do get one while you’ve got security software installed, then you have serious issues. The bug is likely smarter than the software you have. It’s likely buried itself deeply within your operating system, and isn’t leaving without a fight. In many cases, the best thing you can do is to copy your data off (to an external drive, to the Cloud, etc.) and then blow your computer and rebuild it. It’s the safest and easiest way to insure you get rid of the infection. It’s also hugely disruptive and a pain to do.
Zemana Anti-Malware is a second-tier malware scanner designed to rescue your computer from viruses, Trojans, rootkits, etc. that have infected your system despite all the security measures you have in place. The best thing is that Zemana Anti-Malware can peacefully coexist with other security software on your computer. In the past, having multiple security programs installed on your PC often resulted in slow-downs, crashes, and, surprisingly, less security than running just the single security app.
