How to detect Viruses easily

I am going to tell you about a trick to detect viruses in your computer. It is simple and fast. Just follow the steps below:


1- Go to start-run-command
2- Write cd.. (notice the tow dots) and press enter write cd.. (again) and press enter
3- Write (cd windows) and press enter
4- Write (cd system32) and press enter
5- Write (setup) and enter
If you get that message
(Please switch to the control panel to install components and systems composition)
Then that means your pc is clean.
The idea here is the (setup) file which is located within (system32) is shut down when your pc infected and open when your pc is not infected because most viruses shut down all system.exe extensions.
I've tried it and it worked!

Here's a fee-based service to do it for you:

To detect the threat level, you may want to try the free (& advertised on TV) web site
www.MySafePC.com, but virus removal will cost $$ - they're happy to tell you you're infected for
free, though.

Here's Symantec's list of things to do:

If you suspect that your computer is infected with a threat or you receive a threat alert, and you want to make sure that your computer is secure.

You can perform a virus scan to eliminate any known threat from your computer. Scanning your computer for threats is easy if you follow the step-by-step instructions provided in this article. The scanning process may take an hour or more, depending on the number of files you have on your computer.

To detect and remove all the threats from your computer, follow these five steps:

• Install the latest virus definitions.

• Stop all running programs and temporarily disconnect the computer from any network.

• Run the virus scan.

• Install the latest Windows updates.

• Run a full system scan once again to ensure that there are no threats.

The first step is to check whether you can install the latest virus definitions, as some threats may block your access to all the security products' Web sites including Symantec's Web site. The subsequent steps vary depending on whether you can download the latest definitions from the Symantec Web site or not.

Please follow the steps below to reset the protection counter effectively.

If you have any anti virus software, please deactivate first.
The resetter software (adjprog.exe) requires specific date to run and your anti virus will prevent that.
Make sure you printer is ON and connected to your computer.
Run "Start.bat" file.
This program will set your computer date to 12 Jan 2006.
Click "Accept" button.
Click "Particular adjustment mode" button.
Select on "Waste ink pad counter" and click "OK" button.
Click on "Initialization" button and the program will reset the protection counter.
Click "Finish" button.
Change your computer's date back when it prompted.
Reactivate your anti virus if any.
Thank you
