Do you have a virus?

Not sure whether you have a virus on your device? In that case, you need security as soon as possible! Do the following:

  • Perform a free online scan available from any of these antivirus websites * (for Windows users only):
  • If you already have a virus scanner, put it to work immediately. If a virus is detected, the virus scanner takes you through the process of removing the virus.
  • If you have not yet installed a virus scanner, choose one from this overview of reliable virus scanners and let it do its job. These virus scanners have both a Dutch-language and a French-language website.
  • You can always contact your Internet Service Provider or your bank for advice about a reliable virus scanner.
  • Installing one reliable virus scanner is sufficient.

This list of virus scanners was compiled from the tested results of the neutral institute AV Test. We have only provided those virus scanners with a Dutch-language and French-language website.
