    Sorry, no answer from me because I mis-read the initial post. I have trouble reading an entire paragraph with no punctuation.

    There's plenty of free options for scanning. Just Google free online antivirus.

    Really? My brain has the ability to add missing punctuation where it belongs, and thus allows me to read English words whether or not there are little dots and dashes between them.

    I
    was
    wondering
    what
    software
    do
    computer
    repair
    shops
    use
    to
    diagnostics
    and
    check
    for
    virus
    malware
    ext
    I
    googled
    it
    but
    most
    are
    trying
    sell
    u
    junk
    software
    they
    say
    the
    sops
    use
    and
    scams
    as
    well
    reason
    I
    think
    I
    got
    a
    malware
    or
    something
    not
    good
    and
    it
    cost
    LOT
    and
    my
    warranty
    don't
    cover
    malware
    viruses
    and
    what
    ever
    else
    a
    Mac
    can
    get
    not
    sure
    if
    they
    can
    get
    same
    thing
    as
    a
    pc
    can
    if
    I
    do
    have
    something
    bad
    I
    can
    use
    my
    friends
    laptop
    to
    make
    the
    software
    needed
    to
    check

    someone
    who
    may
    work
    for
    a
    repair
    shop
    or
    would
    know
