If your laptop has been infected with a virus or malware, it is important to take the necessary steps to protect your device. The first step is to install an antivirus program. This will help detect and remove any malicious code that may be present on your laptop. Once the antivirus software is installed, you should run a full virus scan to check for any malicious code.
If you are using AVG AntiVirus, you can configure it to automatically scan your laptop for malware. This will ensure that your device is regularly checked for any malicious code. If you suspect that your laptop has been infected with a virus or malware, you can also use Windows Defender Offline Scan. This will scan your computer for any malicious code hidden in Windows and remove it.
To use this feature, open the antivirus application and select Run Smart Scan.
