Thank you for looking at this guide from Stress Free Pc’s to help you install the free online virus scanner from ESet. I recommend this one if your system has not got an anti-virus on it.

In following steps we will go through how to remove any virus, malware or adware from you system after a scam program or a scammer from a phone call has got into your computer remotely and they have installed any program on there.


Safe mode with Networking from Windows 7 and below

First we have to start the system up in safe mode with networking so that we can gain access to the internet. Some program will stop you from using these program in normal mode so I recommend you do all these guide in safe mode with networking. To start up in safe mode you will need to press the power button on and then the F8 key (it is differnet if you are using windows 8 and above) as it is booting up this will give you this screen shot below.

To get to the point all you have to do is use the down arrow key once and it will move you to that location and them you press enter. This will go through the setup like normal but it will say safe mode once it has finished booting up.
