Once or twice a month depending on your browsing habits.
This is excellent advice. Another great freeware on-demand scanner for the scanning and removal of over 4,000,000 kinds of Viruses, Trojans, Spyware, Adware, Worms, Dialers, Keyloggers and other malign programs is the Emisoft Emergency Kit 1.0
. This software was formerly known as and garnered a well respected reputation under the name of A-Squared Free until Emisoft changed its name earlier this year.
For a quick second opinion freeware Malware scanner I recommend the Hitman Pro 3.5 Cloud Scanner
which scans about 9,000 files on my computer from its 'server in the cloud' in just over 1 minute and has many times found Malware detections that Malwarebytes had missed which is why I always take an extra minute after a Malwarebytes scan to get a second opinion from Hitman Pro 3.5. Hitman Pro also has a handy context menu scanner.
