Best Virus Scan Software

Reader Question:
“Hi Wally, can you tell me which Virus Scan software you recommend?” - Matthew R., USA

Quick Answer: I always recommend using WinThruster (Download) to scan and remove virus remnants and improve your PC health and performance.

  • Step 1 : Download Virus Scan Clean Up (WinThruster for Win 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP and 2000 – Microsoft Gold Certified).
  • Step 2 : Click “Start Scan” to find Windows registry issues that could be causing PC problems.
  • Step 3 : Click “Repair All” to fix all issues.

Setting up weekly (or daily) automatic scans will help prevent system problems and keep your PC running fast and trouble-free.

Wally’s Answer:

Why Virus Scan Software Is Important

Computer viruses can stop your computer in its tracks, just as a virus can affect human beings. When you have a computer virus, it may be something that you do not even realize for a while, until it begins to cause issues with computer performance.

A computer virus does not just occur, however. It can be attributed to a person who makes the virus, whether it is a Trojan worm, spyware, malware, and other data viruses, and then releases the virus to do damage to other people’s computers and websites.

Downloading from the Internet or opening an email can set the virus into effect and cause it to begin doing damage to your computer. Someone whose goal is to do damage to your computer and/or use your files, such as your address book, etc., creates this virus and puts it in places where people are sure to pick it up.

Virus Scan Is Not Enough

If not properly maintained and optimized, your Windows-based PC may eventually experience slow and sluggish performance. There are several reasons why computers run slower, including malware infection (spyware/viruses), fragmented hard drives, software that’s never used (bloatware), hidden junk files, and a faulty registry.

Because the Windows Registry is most often neglected by computer users, PC performance problems can usually be attributed directly to a corrupt and bloated registry. Therefore, the Windows Registry is usually the area that requires the most attention.

My Recommended Software

I always recommend to my readers to download a trusted registry cleaner such as WinThruster (download link) or CCleaner.

Personally, I use and recommend WinThruster because it is Microsoft Gold Certified software and provides full customer support (phone, email, and chat). It is very easy to use and highly effective at cleaning, repairing, and optimizing your PC. The best part is that you can set it to run automatically, allowing you to effortlessly maintain a clean and optimized PC.
