Free virus scanner from Microsoft

If you run Windows OS and think that your PC miht have a PC, just download Microsoft Safety Scanner which scans and helps remove viruses, spyware, and other malware. I have a few antivirus and antispyware running on my computer and it did not have any conflicts working with them.

Note that the Microsoft Safety Scanner expires 10 days after it is downloaded and you would need to download it again after that in case you wanted to check your computer again.

I used the full scan option and it took quite sometime to complete the scan. However, it was well worth it as it detected 4 infected files on my PC. This was despite the fact that I had an antivirus and antispyware software running on it.
