Thanks for the rich discussion and information on software which can effectively take out malware.

A certain Indian product "Quick heal Pro" is a very efficient anti virus and also a malware killer,you may want to try it out too.

So unfortunate that people take out their time to create such diabolic things,we live in a crazy world though.

Adaware and Bitdefender has both free editions and are as good as Malwarebytes in tracking down and destroying malware.  Also Windows 10 has a built-in anti malware program it's called Windows Defender and it has Antimalware Service Executable that is running and perpetually scanning your CPU for malware.

The best way to get rid of malware is to use a malware removal tool found in any good antivirus software. I adore Malware Bytes. It can remove any malware from your devices quickly and easily.

I recently downloaded the malwarebytes application. It wasn't my computer that was in trouble, it was my android tablet. I has scanned it severally with some popular antivirus apps and found nothing. When I installed and used Malwarebytes, it picked up on one malware infection and deleted it. I think it's a really handy app to have.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Free and paid for version)


Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is considered to be the next step in the detection and removal of malware. In our product we have compiled a number of new technologies that are designed to quickly detect, destroy, and prevent malware. Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware can detect and remove malware that even the most well known anti-virus and anti-malware applications fail to detect. Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware monitors every process and stops malicious processes before they even start. The realtime protection module uses our advanced heuristic scanning technology which monitors your system to keep it safe and secure. In addition, we have implemented a threats center which will allow you to keep up to date with the latest malware threats.


Spyware Terminator (Free)


Millions of users worldwide rely on Spyware Terminator, winner of many awards and high ratings from industry experts and users. Its free comprehensive protection is comparable to competitors' paid versions!


Spybot Search & Destroy (Free)


Spybot - Search & Destroy detects and removes spyware, a relatively new kind of threat not yet covered by common anti-virus applications. Spyware silently tracks your surfing behaviour to create a marketing profile for you that is transmitted without your knowledge to the compilers and sold to advertising companies.


If you see new toolbars in your Internet Explorer that you haven't intentionally installed, if your browser crashes inexplicably, or if your home page has been "hijacked" (or changed without your knowledge), your computer is most probably infected with spyware.


Even if you don't see the symptoms, your computer may be infected, because more and more spyware is emerging. Spybot-S&D is free, so there's no harm giving it a try to see if something has invaded your computer.


Spybot-S&D can also clean usage tracks, an interesting function if you share your computer with other users and don't want them to see what you have been working on. And for professional users, Spybot-S&D allows you to fix some registry inconsistencies and extended reports.


Windows Defender


Windows Defender is software that helps protect your computer against pop-ups, slow performance, and security threats caused by spyware and other unwanted software by detecting and removing known spyware from your computer. Windows Defender features Real-Time Protection, a monitoring system that recommends actions against spyware when it's detected, minimizes interruptions, and helps you stay productive.


The benefits of installing Windows Defender include:


    * Spyware detection and removal

    * Improved Internet browsing safety

    * Protection against the latest threats


Windows Defender is enhanced by SpyNet, a community that brings Windows Defender users together to identify and share information about spyware. This community reports potential threats identified by the Windows Defender real-time system agents to the SpyNet servers, which catalog and update the system to help protect you from new spyware threats.

SUPER Antispyware (Free and paid for version)


SUPERAntiSpyware Professional features our highly advanced Real-Time Protection to ensure protection from installation or re-installation of potential threats as you surf the Internet. Used in conjunction with our First Chance Prevention and Registry Protection, your computer is protected from thousands of threats that attempt to infect and infiltrate your system at startup or while shutting down your system.


Advanced Detection and Removal


* Detect and Remove Spyware, Adware, Malware, Trojans, Dialers, Worms, KeyLoggers, HiJackers, Parasites, Rootkits, Rogue Security Products and many other types of threats.

* Light on System Resources and won't slow down your computer like many other anti-spyware products. Won't conflict with your existing anti-spyware or anti-virus solution!


Real-Time Protection


* Real-Time Blocking of threats! Prevent potentially harmful software from installing or re-installing!

* First Chance Prevention examines over 50 critical points of your system each time your system starts up and shuts down to eliminate threats before they have a chance to infect and infiltrate your system.

* Schedule either Quick, Complete or Custom Scans Daily or Weekly to ensure your computer is free from harmful software.

Malware Bytes is a very popular anti malware software. It is recommended to install by many of the popular security companies and public. I have purchased the license for the Malware Bytes total protection and I am going to have it installed on my laptop once my Kaspersky license finishes.
