Ninite is a website that automates installing and updating computer programs.
1. Browse to https://ninite.com/
2. Tick the security software(s) you want to install. We recommend Avast, Malwarebytes, Spybot and SuperAntiSpyware
* If you already have an anti-virus program, we suggest you do not install Avast and use that one instead. Installing more than one program of that kind can cause issues
3. Click 'Get Your Ninite'
4. Download the file - then open it once complete and you should see something like this:
Let the downloads and installations complete, then on your 'Desktop' you will see the shortcuts for these programs. Open each of them and perform an update, then a scan.
As always, use this advice at your own risk - this is the process we generally follow but if you suspect your computer is compromised, it is better to seek the help of professionals.
