Excellent program. Follow instructions courtesy of Vog Download Ewido
When installing, under 'Additional Options' untick 'Install background guard' and 'Install scan via context menu'.
Launch Ewido by double clicking the icon on your desktop. The program will now go to the main screen. You will need to update Ewido to the latest definition files. On the left hand side of the main screen click update then click on Start Update.
Then select 'Settings'. Under the bottom section 'What to Scan?' make sure 'Scan every file' is ticked. Select 'OK' and you will return to scanning options. Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin. This scan can take quite a while to run.
While the scan is in progress, you will be prompted to clean the first infected file it finds. Choose 'Clean' (or 'Delete' if 'Clean' is not an option). Then put a tick next to 'Perform action on all infections'. Doing this enables the scan to proceed automatically until its completion. Click OK.
I've been using it since Rawprawn recommended it to me; seems fine. It found a couple of spyware apps that MS Beta had missed in a scan moments earlier, which goes to show that having more than one is advatageous.
Many thanks rawprawn & Halmer for your advice. I have the usual programmes A2,Avast & AVG among various tools which I keep up to date. After running Ewido I was amazed at how many Malawares it found that the other programmes missed.
I'm back now to my postings,, thanks all for your advice; I have installed Ewido and followed Rawprawn's directions. Ran it and it came up with one tracking cookie. But that hasn't deterred me; knowing that my system is protected by this much-favoured newcomer is a real bonus.
