GridinSoft Anti-Malware is useful when you need to get rid of Malware on your PC – Trojan Horses, Worms, Adware, Spyware…
Usually, antivirus software is intended to remove viruses, rootkits, and other infections in your system. But they are often ineffective when you are bombed with a huge amount of advertisements and pop-ups and malicious software… Antimalware Software will be effective in this field when standard anti-virus software either fails to detect them or fails to eliminate them effectively. We are good at doing this, and we are proud of our mission to let you breathe freely surfing the Internet!
The majority of Anti-Malware Scanners are well able to detect malicious software – Trojan Horses, Internet Worms, Adware/Spyware, etc. – but are not always efficient in removing them once they have been triggered.
GridinSoft Anti-Malware is designed specifically to disable/remove Malware without the user having to edit system files or the Registry manually. The program also removes the additional system modifications some Malware carries out, which some standard antivirus scanners ignore.
GridinSoft Anti-Malware scans ALL the files loaded at boot time for Adware, Spyware, Remote Access Trojans, Internet Worms, and other malware.
The Web-Site of GridinSoft Anti-Malware is https://gridinsoft.com/antimalware/. This is the place where you can get the majority of useful information about the latest news in the area of malware applications and how to remove them with the help of GridinSoft Anti-Malware using our malware removal guides (choose Blog section).
You may also purchase the program and ask for help via a customer ticket support system from this starting place.
So, here you are, staring at your home or business computer infected with a certain unwanted application, malware, or, to say shortly, by a virus.
Surely you have, to this or another extent. There are certain virus removal principles that you must adhere to for the successful restoration of your computer back to its status before the very virus attack occurred. This article is devoted to these general recommendations for our users when facing a certain type of virus. Please read it carefully and try to follow these admonitions in times of problems with your computer.
Often this is exactly what the malware developers want from you. If users tend to panic, they also tend to make quick judgments. This is especially true when being infected with a fake anti-virus program. In a panic, some people (again, in a panic) make decisions in haste regarding purchasing the rogue security programs that are useless and helpless.
You need to perform certain research on the type of malware program/problem that attacked your PC and how it can be dealt with/eliminated. The World Wide Web is full of security forums, sites, online discussion platforms, blogs, and other useful information sources. If you did not find the solution or answer, you might consider posting the question on Yahoo! Answers or Microsoft Answers site.
Many sites over the Internet offer excellent removal guidelines and tips on how to get rid of viruses. They recommend certain removal solutions, including anti-virus applications. However, a good security blog or site would offer detailed guidelines on all the necessary steps for malware elimination. It might not be enough just to run the recommended anti-virus software. So, once again, please read the instructions carefully and follow them completely.
Many sites nowadays recommend certain security applications, either free or subject to be paid for. We are not in the position to rate them or to speak either negatively or positively about them. Let the people rate the anti-virus programs (even though many of the contemporary security applications know nothing about the effective removal of malware). So, research this issue and do not pick up just the first security program you’ve encountered.
If you have problems using certain anti-virus software and thus cannot remove the virus, you need to immediately contact the software developer or its customer support team and tell them about your problems. Do not hurry up to uninstall the software if it failed to remove certain viruses! It might be that you did not follow the removal guidelines completely or that the virus has been recently modified and is not duly detected by anti-virus software. Do not purchase or download another software in haste, without first having contacted the developers of the one that failed to remove the virus. If you choose GridinSoft Anti-Malware as your security software, the best way to contact us is via ticket customer support service available here – https://support.gridinsoft.com/antimalware/#ticket-system
It takes some time to research your problem thoroughly to give the proper and constructive answer (recommendation). So, it might take a little bit longer than you expect to resolve the issue of your concern.
While communicating with the customer support team, you are dealing with people and not with robots. We are people like you, and sometimes we have the same problems you have. We strive to satisfy our customers the best we can and do not ignore your requests. We cherish our customers and try to please them, even though sometimes the issue cannot be resolved as quickly as we want.
We undertake to fulfill the responsibilities before our clients, and in the case of problems, we will prioritize the benefit of our users and not ourselves.
We cherish our customers, even though sometimes things do not go as smoothly as they want.

GridinSoft Internet Security is an internet filtering technology that checks each web page you visit in real-time and will allow or block a webpage based on the GridinSoft Threat List and your preferences.
According to our internet security research, internet filtering is increasingly important as most infections and threats appear on your PC while you are visiting harmful sites without knowing it. Our real-time filtering technology gives you visibility and control over your online activity with easy to use controls.
Since the internet is full of mature and inappropriate content, a reliable and advanced internet filter is important to protect yourself and your family from unintended exposure.
To restart Google Chrome without losing your open tabs just type chrome://restart into the address bar and press Enter.
To restart Mozilla Firefox without losing your open tabs press Shift+F2 and then type restart into the console window before pressing Enter.
To restart Internet Explorer without losing your open tabs, close the application and relaunch it, then select Tools -> Reopen previous browsing session. Unfortunately, this will restore the tabs on your last Internet Explorer window, but it won’t reopen multiple windows if you had them open.
GridinSoft Internet Security relies on our technology to review the content of any website connected with malware or adware activity, or virus-making.
Why is that important? The internet changes constantly; websites are updated daily, and thousands of new web pages are added worldwide. Our Analyst Team works hard to classify and research each threat they found, and we understand the necessity of having an internet filter that can keep up with these constant changes for our customers. Our filtering technology is based on our own researches, and we are proud of our possibility to update the Threat List hourly! We detect the threat and the way it appeared and block it at the same moment to prevent our customers from infecting as soon as possible.
GridinSoft Internet Security allows the good content you want to access while keeping out harmful and inappropriate pages so that you can use the internet without fear of accidental exposure to undesirable material or dangerous software.
You can switch Internet Security On to view, block, or alert any harmful website listed in our ThreatList: list of possible threats here. These categories are the same for Windows and Android devices.
With our filtering technology, GridinSoft Internet Security will not cause your device or computer to run slowly when filtering internet content.
Using Internet Security, you have to know that any restrictions could be changed if you guess the site is blocked by mistake or you definitely know you want to visit it – in this case, they could be changed to suit each user’s unique needs.

USB disks are one of the most popular ways for viruses or similar threats to appear on your PC.
It is very important to secure this way, and the only solution is prevention. It is absolutely impossible to find out where the concrete rootkit, backdoor, or something else was brought into your system from. Still, it’s definitely much easier to stop it at the moment of copying (installing, running, or duplicating – depending on the type of the threat and thief’s ingenuity) – that’s why keeping USB protection ON allows you to stay on guard of your security each time when you are connecting any disks, cards or other storage devices to your USB port…
GridinSoft USB Protection keeps watching on the processes and processor’s activity when a USB device is connected. Why is that important? Any device connected to your PC could be potentially untrustful as you couldn’t know where this device was connected before and who can use it for the aims of an informational attack. We analyze the processes that have been running at the moment of disk connection and their behavior, so we can warn the user when suspicious activity is detected.
Our heuristic behavior file analyzer technology is based on our own researches, and we are proud of our ability to update the Threat List hourly! We detect the threat and the way it appeared and block it at the same moment to prevent our customers from infecting as soon as possible.
When a new USB-device is connected to your PC, a pop-up window of Removable device protection will appear with a suggestion to scan the connected device:
If you choose Skip – nothing will happen, and if you choose Scan – the program will start to scan the device.

keeping out harmful and inappropriate software so you can use the connected discs without fear of infecting your system with undesirable or dangerous software.
You can keep USB Protection ON to block the most common way of the threat’s appearance on your PC. GridinSoft USB Protection will not cause your computer to work slowly while checking connected disks. It just needs a few additional seconds before your drive will be approved. Don’t forget: the protection engine monitors processes and processor’s activity – that is why GridinSoft USB Protection will check files in memory and some files in the Windows directory to ensure they are still unchanged and work properly.
