Did you know that Google Chrome can detect and remove any possible malicious software on your computer? It's the most practical and easy-to-use option if you don't want to pay for a professional antivirus. To use the trick, read on.
In addition to the tools integrated into your operating system (threat detection, firewall, etc.), you have likely installed a few programs to ensure your PC is completely protected. However, if this is not the case and you suspect a virus has infected your computer, don't worry: you can always use Google Chrome's built-in antivirus. It doesn't require any downloads or installations and is easy to use.
How to run Chrome antivirus?
- Open Google Chrome on your PC, click on the menu icon (three vertical dots) in the window's top right corner, and go to the Settings section.
- In the left menu, open Advanced Settings > Reset and clean up and click on Clean up computer.
- Finally, launch the scan by clicking on Find.
How to remove malware with Chrome?
- Wait for Google Chrome to scan your computer for viruses (while you can still work or use other programs).
- If a threat is detected, click Remove to remove it. If Chrome asks you to do so, restart your computer.
That's it. Easy, isn't it?
