Malwarebytes is a malware removal tool that can aid a virus protection software in removal of malicious software and/or virus from your computer. It is most effective when used in safe mode. With this program and Symantec Anti-Virus, most viruses are easily disposed of, assuming that the user has not put off trying to remove it from the system.

Please note: Beginning in the 2014-2015 academic year, Gustavus Technology Services will no longer offer Symantec Endpoint Protection for installation on personally-owned computers. Campus network users (Windows) will still be required to have a functional antivirus program installed on their computer. These programs include Norton, Kaspersky, etc. On Windows 8 machines, the standard Windows Defender program is recommended.

When starting in safe mode, choosing the option with networking is best as it will allow MalwareBytes to be updated before scanning.
