Thanks sitegutu I'll try it. Windows defender managed to remove a lot but not all.

It was fairly basic, but actually pretty good. Certainly in Windows 10... possibly not so much in 7.

Basically, if you're not bad at internetting, you'll probably be OK with Defender. If you're the sort of person that googles for free software, films and porn, you may want something a bit more substantial.
