The Strategy for Removing Viruses
and other Computer Nasties


1. No single program gets rid of every single virus or nasty
So follow the checklist below!

2. Don't be afraid of any of these programs together they work very well! and they are free or donateware!

3. If you have AntiVir running while you do Housecall you create what is known in the military as a "Pincer Attack"

Most of the time these two programs running together force 
viruses to show themselves. When normally individual scans
would show nothing. Why? I have no idea, but it works!
