You may have stumbled on to the wrong website, or open the wrong email. It happens. There are various programs on your computer that you install that interact with each other. Sometimes, though, a slow system or weird behavior can be an outward and visible sign of an inward and terrible malware infestation. How do you know if you’ve got a malware problem? If any of the seven warning signs below match your experience, malware may well have compromised your security.
Signs You Need Malware Protection

- Your browser keeps getting redirected
- An unknown app sends security warnings
- Mysterious post appear on your social media
- You get ransom demands
- You system tools are disables
- Everything seems perfectly fine
How Do You Get Rid of It
If you think that malware has taken up residence in your PC, install a powerful antivirus application or security suite immediately. Already got one? Then apparently the malware got past its protection. Make sure your antivirus is entirely up to date, and run a full scan.
If you still have an unwanted app your regular security software can’t get rid of you can scan your PC again with an on-demand cleanup tool, such as Malwarebytes. Do whatever it takes to get that nasty, malicious program out of your system as soon as possible before it invites friends to make your security problems even worse.
