Do you keep getting annoying “pop ups” when surfing the web?
When you are surfing the internet, do you keep getting lots of new pages opening or pop up boxes appearing when you haven’t asked them to?
Your PC may have a virus… but don’t panic, try the following steps;
Run your virus software (AVG, Norton, McAfee, AVAST etc)
Check that the virus software is up to date (it will tell you if it isn’t when you open it)
- Check that the virus scanner is turned on and working – there is usually a button saying “working or protecting”
- Run a virus scan and then follow the on screen instructions.
Delete or quarantine the Virus
- Check your firewall / virus settings using Control Panel, Windows Firewall and sure that it is turned on and working
