Now it´s time to make sure you´re not infected with any malware, this could render your system incredibly slow and we don´t want that do we? No we do not !

1. Download MalwareBytes

2. Install the program, then start it.

3. Now Run a Full Scan.

4. Remove any infections

Now that we are sure your are all clean (if you had more then 2 infections then contact a specialist (PUPs and Cookies do not count) you might have had a bad infection)
