  1. I am currently using Anti-malware bytes, but it's just never finding anything which i know i should relish in, but my computer is slow, so i'm thinking there must be something there.. so if anyone knows any program that's Free, that is easy to use. I would be very appreciative. thanks

    There is no such thing.
    It depends on what you're infected with.

    Slow computer doesn't necessarily mean malware either. For instance:
    1. How many processes are on the Startup Menu?
    2. How many processes are running in the Task Manager.
    3. Some Services have to be set to Automatic, others can be set to Manual. Have you ever check this- with guidance?
    4. What is your operating system? How much RAM is installed.
    5. What security do you have running? Did you know that a "suite" may be resource heavy, whereas you can get stand alone security programs that do the job, but are less resource intensive.

    And as mentioned, there is no "best" Trojan and/or Malware Remover- is depends on what the malware is.
