Remove Malware with Malwarebytes Free

I am the resident computer guy.  So I get lots of requests to fix computers.  It is now so easy to remove most malware that I am really surprised people still ask me.  Here is how I remove malware on most systems.

Step 1.  Download the Trial Version of malwarebytes

You can get the trial version for 30-days.  It is great software so I encourage you to buy it – https://www.malwarebytes.com/  Download the free trial on your desktop or somewhere you can easily find it.

Step 2.  Restart your system in “Safe Mode”

Once malwarebytes is downloaded on your system, restart the computer and hit the “F8” key to over and over until you are given the option to boot the system in a different state. Select “Safe Mode”

Step 3.  Install Malwarebytes

Double click Malwarebytes, and follow the instructions.

Step 4. Start Malwarebytes

How long this takes depends on how much data Malwarebytes has to go through and how fast you system is.  Some things will take more than normal antimalware software.  Rootkits for example, are a little harder to get rid of.  For these, I have found it helpful to google the errors, warning banners and symptoms you are seeing to find someone else who had the same issue and fixed it.  Some are so bad you will have to search for an answer on a separate system.

Good luck to you.

Physical Security Ring Video Door Bell Review

Just bought the Ring.com video door bell and I like it!  If you have not heard of this device, what it does is sends a notification to your phone whenever someone rings your doorbell or comes within close proximity of your front door.  The notification allows you to see them on video and talk to them straight from your phone.

We went on a trip to another state and I was able to talk to guest when they were talking outside my front door.  They were shocked.  For a small fee of $3/month (or $30 for the year) you can have Ring.com save the video footage.  This would come in handy if someone was at your door doing something they were not supposed to be doing.

There are a few issues I have with the device.  It does not allow you to see your front time on demand.  Meaning, you cannot hit a button and see what is going on.  Someone has to be trigger the motion detection or ring to doorbell in order to be prompted to see what is going on.  Also there was a vulnerability in the ring.com software that was had the secret key of your wifi network unencrypted, but this was fixed by ring.com as soon as they discovered it.  The other thing I have an issue with, is the lag.  There is like a 5+ second delay from the time the system is activated to the time it gets to your phone.
