Question
How do I identify malware and remove it and what total internet antivirus software would you recommend for home PC'S.

Answer
Hey Robert,

To identify and remove malware, I suggest the following applications and to use all of them.

1) Spybot Search & Destroy available at http://www.safer-networking.org
2) MalwareBytes available at https://www.malwarebytes.org

Install both, run scans.

For antivirus:

1) Upgrade to Windows 10 and use the built in Windows Defender application which is free.

I also highly suggest purchasing CUJO for $49 which will protect you against hackers and more available at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/cujo-the-smart-way-to-fight-home-hacking#/

Best,
Jonathan
