Once you install your anti-malware programs, update each of them. If one of your softwares doesn’t have an automatic update option, click on the update option by entering your software dashboard and do it manually.

Once you are done installing and updating your anti-malware programs, it s time for you to restart your computer. Restarting your computer will enable the anti-malware program to scan your computer properly. In order to do that access the Advanced Boot Options screen by pressing “F8” from your keyboard. Later select the “SAFE MODE” and let the anti-malware program run its scan.
STEP 05: LOGIN AGAIN AND LAUNCH THE ANTI-MALWARE APPLICATION
After the scan is over and you leave your computer to reboot, choose any one of your anti-malware programs and run a full system scan. The full system scan is done to catch any threats left even after the previous scan. Now, either manually remove them by using the removal option given in the program interface or let the anti-malware program remove them automatically.
STEP 06: CLOSE THE FIRST ANTI-MALWARE AND CHECK USING THE SECOND ANTI-MALWARE APPLICATION.
Once you have checked the entire computer system of any malwares using your previous anti-malware, go ahead and run your second anti-malware.
