  • If you're in doubt, throw it out. Delete it.

  • When in doubt, delete.

    • somethings sometimes download more stuff than you can see.. or download them in different places
      and they have to be deleted in a special way :\

    • Got to control panel and uninstall programs.

      Another place would be go on search and type, "%appdata%." Check if you see anything that doesn't look like what you normally use. If you're unsure then don't touch it because it might be important.

      Though best to have ccleaner and malwarebytes.

    • ok ill try that

      thank you

  • First of all, on the magical machine called the computer, you should have an antivirus. Imagine it as your guardian angel.
    Second of all, if someone starts downloading, you let it finish, document the file type, its source, size, name etc, try to figure out where you got it from (without opening/running the file) and then reporting it o the internet...

  • You quarantine it.
