How To Get Rid Of A Dead Bot

In this episode of the podcast, host Steve Elliott talks about getting rid of a bot infection, one of the most common and damaging to people. These infestations are common, and often cause problems all over your body.

We are picking up the pieces once again from a great tragedy that has taken innocent lives and shattered our sense of safety in the world. Again we see before our eyes that what is good and noble on the Earth can be brought down in an instant by the evil that lurks in the shadows.

This is what happens when we turn our back on our communities that want freedom, and instead focus our thoughts on the security threats of the world in the cyber world, and where they have the most influence.

If there is any way we can avoid these dangers, and make our world safe, we all have to do our part, and we can start by removing malware and bot activity from our computer, then we can continue to make improvements to how we do our personal and business networking.

It’s time for us all to grow up together and realize how close we are to disaster, and that we need to use technology to our full benefit and protect our families, ourselves and our communities. This is a message that needs to be brought into every home, workplace, community and even college campus.

It’s time for us all to take responsibility for our lives and our homes, which we can do today. We will not see the full realization of our full potential until we do our part to make sure that our children and grandchildren have a safe and secure world, and we all have the opportunity to do so.

If you are affected by malware, please do what you can, to help yourself. Here are some easy things to do to help:

STEP ONE: Remove any software from your computer.

STEP TWO: Get a good antivirus.  (One with a good review on PCMag is free and recommended by experts online .)

STEP THREE: Run an antivirus scan, and then remove any bad software.  A simple internet search can show you all the free stuff out there, and you can try different programs and types, depending on what you want to fix.

STEP FOUR: Then get a good software download if that is not an option.  When you get your download, make sure it’s free and that it is of the most current and up to date version, and that it has a good review.  Don’t buy it, because it might do nothing at all, or do damage that’s not needed.

STEP FIVE: Delete everything from your computer: files, applications, system settings, and any other files. If you have backups, delete everything that has information about you, your family, and others close to you, and keep them in a safe place that’s easily accessible.

STEP SIX: You still need a good backup, but also make sure any important data is backed up somewhere else. Again, it might not even make sense to back up your computer, but it will be wise.

STEP SEVEN: If you are concerned about someone reading your email, you should encrypt it.  I recommend “PGP” encryption.  PGP encrypts the email so that only you and the person for whom you are writing can read it.  PGP was created by the people who invented Bitcoin and has been tested and approved by the international governing body for encryption.

If you would prefer to have your email not be encrypted, you can email the recipient yourself.  Remember, if you are sharing email with others the last thing to do is encrypt it.
