I couldn’t have been dumber with my current pc over the past few years. I don’t know much about them, all I knew was I had a set up and downloaded/clicked on/trusted online game friends with stupid shit I shouldn’t have and my computer is mega fucked. I am seeing conflicting opinions everywhere about anti-virus software. First question is, if I buy a brand new SSD (and remove the current hard drive/ssd) everything currently in my PC will be wiped and it’ll be like starting over right? Which is the best paid software; malwarebytes, norton 365, kaspersky, etc? Can I trust a paid programs VPN, or should I consider buying one separately like express vpn?
