After the Eset online virus scanner has completed it is time to scan for malware and PuPs that may not have been detected or left behind. HerdProtect is a malware detection  program that uses several different scanning engines at once. Herdprotect will scan your laptop for any remain malware and PuP threats.

Step 4: Malwarebytes Junk Removal Tool (JRT)

Malware recently bought two utilities that have been computer technician favorites for some time. The Junk Removal Tool (JRT) scans several areas of your computer and removes any malicious or questionable settings. This includes browser add-ons.

If you do not already have Malwarebytes installed then download Malwarebytes and run it. It is important to update Malwarebytes before scanning your computer.

ADWCleaner performs similar tasks that JRT did. There are a few settings and issues that it may detect that other utilities will not. Once you run this utility it will require you to restart your computer.
