The goal of this web page is to present the basic steps you should follow to remove Malware infections using our Free Virus Removal Tools. Ideally, you should follow the steps in sequence, but some infections may prevent using several cleaning programs.  If you cannot use one of the cleaning utilities, go to the next step and see if it removes the infection(s). Try using EVERY cleaning program to ensure the infection(s) has been removed.  Malware infections are designed by Cyber-Criminals to steal your personal information and these unauthorized programs are very sophisticated and difficult to remove. It may take many hours or several days to scan, clean and repair your Malware infection (s).  Please be patient, follow the steps, read the instructions and keep your "fingers crossed". Sometimes the only way to repair your computer is just never give up.
