Malware is a kind of catchall phrase that encompasses pretty much any kind of software that could cause harm to your data or your machine.
It includes software such as viruses, spyware, adware, Trojans, worms, scareware, and more. Malware can be pretty sophisticated, and it can work hard to prevent you from removing it.
In Windows 10, Microsoft is introducing many new features to make users more productive, such as a new Start menu, Cortana, new universal apps, Settings, which is the central place to configure the operating system, ultimately designed to replace Control Panel, and much more.
The software giant is also introducing Microsoft Edge, the new default web browser built for the future web and to replace Internet Explorer (which it's still present for compatibility purposes).
I’ll save the “prevention is so much easier than the cure” missive for a moment. There are things that we can try, but unfortunately, there are no guarantees.However, like Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge is part of Windows 10.It's nearly impossible to uninstall the app, and even if you could, you might run into different issues.We’d love to download and run anti-malware tools, but we can’t. I recommend that you begin by downloading Windows Defender Offline.Windows Defender Offline is an anti-malware tool – essentially a stand-alone version of Windows Defender (also known as Microsoft Security Essentials in older Windows versions) – that you download and burn to CD or install on a USB flash drive.Disable toolbars and extensions one by one The most reliable way to make IE work again is to disable all Internet Explorer add-ins that may prevent your browser from working properly or reset the browser (see method 2).
