|My Computer Came To a Complete Stop.|

It was yesterday and the computer went slower and slower
and at the end completely stopped working.
So big panic and thousands of questions what could be wrong.
Hardware failure with all the possible fail, hard disk crash,
memory, graphics card, power supply, CPU cooling?
Program conflict, driver problem? And endless flow of possible
things going wrong.
But I was lucky. When surfing I saw in the action bar something of downloading a mining program.
That's it, a malware program trying to mine crypto coin in the background using my CPU.
But I was lucky using a program called Malwarebytes to fix it.
So I urge you to keep your computer updated with an anti-virus program, firewall and a program like the above to keep your computer clean from nasty programs.
You can find many free when googling.
I can also recommend CCleaner for deleting all unnecessary files on your computer. We can talk here about GB!
