Everyone doesn't want computers infected with a virus. The question is, where the virus entered into the computer.

When we insert the flash drive to the infected computer, flash drive will be infected with the virus. In a flash drive that is infected, will form the autorun.inf file. Autorun.inf files will work automatically, every flash drive is inserted. Setting the default operating system is windows autorun when inserted an external device. Autorun windows, used by the autorun.inf, to enter into the computer. To protect your computer from viruses, there are a few things done:

How to remove a virus - free virus protection/removal software


<span>How to Remove a Virus With Software Recommendations</span><br /><br />In this tech article I will go over methods to protect and remove viruses from your computer. Viruses can cripple a computer and steal your personal information. You should protect your computer at all times and learn what and what not to do on the internet. <br /><br /><span>Free Virus Protection Tools</span><br />The following programs are free and highly recommended. <br /><br /><a href="http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html">Spybot Search and Destroy </a>- This tool will scan and clean your computer from spyware. It will also run actively in the background to protect against infection. <br /><br /><a href="http://www.malwarebytes.org/">MalwareBytes </a>- You can use MalwareBytes to remove all forms of viruses from your computer but it cost extra to have the real time protection. Nonetheless, a very good tool and free to use. <br /><br /><a href="http://www.avg.com/us-en/free-antivirus-download">AVG Anti-Virus</a> - The basic software is free and provides protection against viruses and spyware. It also has link scanning which can come in handy. <br /><br />It is important to keep these software utilities up to date with the latest virus definitions needed to protect and clean your computer. <br /><br /><br /><span>Removing Viruses</span><br /><br />-If by some chance you are already infected or the programs happen to let your computer get infected(not likely) then you need to take certain steps in order to completely remove the virus. If you have <span style="font-weight: bold;">System Restore</span> active in Microsoft Windows, you can restore the computer to a state before the infection. Afterwards, do complete scans of the computer using the programs above.<br /><br />-Malware will stop anti virus programs from running, and other basic computer functions needed to remove viruses like Task Manager and System Restore. If you are at a point of infection where you can't use any of your basic computer functions. You will need to boot the computer into Safe Mode without Networking(no internet). Once you boot into safe mode, run system restore or your virus removal programs. <br /><br />-You can boot into safe mode by continually pressing F8 as the computer is booting up. Then choose the Safe Mode option. <br /><br />-Be careful when using Facebook. There is a new trick going around to spread nasty viruses. Basically, the facebook app pretends to show you who your top friends are. There are no programs that can do this so if you see anything like this come your way, do not click it. Also, do not login to any facebook login except at the main facebook site. If you click on a link in facebook it may take you to a fake login page so be wary.<br /><br />-Be careful when clicking attachments in emails. Only open attachments from people you trust. Be sure to scan the attachments before you actually run/open them on your computer.<br /><br />-Be careful when downloading programs from websites you are not familiar with.<br /><br />-Make sure to keep Microsoft Windows up to date. New viruses and exploits are created monthly and Windows updates is a first line of defense.<br /><br />With these tools and tips, you should now be better protected against virus infection.

I keep getting a virus alert and when I ask to remove viruses it brings me to a page to buy virus protection. I already have virus protection on Windows. What can I do to resolve this annoying problem...


You are infected with a Trojan or Malware. The pop-ups are bogus.. You are only infected with the product they are trying to sell you. What is the name of the Virus Protection they are trying to sell you? First thing to do is restart your computer in Safe Mode and run all your security scans. See it they find the culprit.If not post back,

Virus Protection


I have observed that no Anti-Virus software gives you complete protection. Whether its from big known companies like : Norton, McAfee, AVG etc. To Keep your computer safe, try not to click on any unknown advertisements or links on the websites. Keep your Anti-Virus softwares up to date. In case, if your computer is infected than try to use malwarebytes and update it before scanning your computer. Remove all the infections and quarantine items on the software and restart your computer. It will be free from viruses.

What is symantec antivirus??????????


Symantec/Norton AntiVirus (SAV for Windows, NAV for Mac OS X) is a virus protection program distributed by the Symantec Corporation, offering effective protection features, including infected file quarantine, online virus protection updates, and an automatic scheduler. SAV/NAV is designed to start running as soon as your computer's operating system starts. It runs in the background, checking all vulnerable files for possible infection by malevolent programs called viruses and worms. SAV/NAV does this by looking for the identifying signatures of these worms and viruses and comparing them to known viruses for which it has files. When it detects an infected file, it notifies you and manages the infection according to your preferences.

How can i restore factory settings on my acer laptop if not if i instal an anti virus will it get rid of the virus that are already there or just protect against them in the future!


If your machine came with a restore cd or dvd, you can use that to restore your machine back to factory defaults. However, any information you have stored on the hard drive will be destroyed in the process.

Some antivirus software installations will scan for and remove existing viruses, but some will not. If you think you have a virus and you need to keep the information on your machine from deletion, I suggest having someone knowledgeable in the removal of viruses do it for you.

Anti-Virus software is primarily meant to PREVENT a virus infection from occurring. I have however had clients who installed the software, and then disabled it while they "worked" on downloading some suspicious files because they were annoyed by the pop-ups that kept appearing telling them that the file they were downloading was infected....

Bottom line, the software will HELP protect if used properly, but will do NO good if disabled. If you can't get the virus removed on your own, contact me and I will give you instructions on how to send me the computer for disinfecting.
