    Well, it did on mine. You can always completely reinstall everything, but that sucks big time.

    I don't know why McAfee antivirus keeps asking me if I want to buy it when I already have Windows Defender, lol. :)

    McAfee is a spamware bundled with many free applications. Make sure you uncheck it everytime you update your Adobe Flash.

    That doesn’t scan or cleanup your computer. Just chrome.

    I like Malwarebytes, does AV now too

    McAfee and Norton are both worse than getting a Virus

    Trend Micro makes a decent product.

    Windows 10 the built in AV is decent - not the best, but better than most

    AVG Free is okay as well

    Trend, AVG and Windows Defender have the advantage of not slowing down your computer

    Chrome is a piece of shit that should never be used by anyone, ever.

    Google makes software so they can datamine users to sell for profit - their customers are corporations, their product is people who use their software.

    “While this particular tool is not geared towards all malware, but rather browser affecting malware, it does add extra security to the computer. At the same time, there has been concern regarding the periodic scans by this tool because it executes without the user's knowledge, can use up a lot of CPU, and performs potential tracking of installed software and other information from the computer.”

    No thanks
