IS Spotmau.com a good virus removal tool that could help me reset my password.


Hi
Don't take everything I say literally BUT I have had considerable success on a range of laptops and desktops with Hirens. If you have access to a computer on which you can download Hirens and install to a CD/DVD or bootable USB drive, then you can use the programmes to reset your password and others to check for viruses etc. plus a wide range of useful diagnostic and informational software. It is free !!!

Also the free version of AVG antivirus has worked for me for many years to keep my computers (in excess of 5) virus free, although a few other users I have heard of have not been completely free of malware, adware etc. Most instances have been Adware or Malware (both unwanted) installing themselves whilst installing a "wanted" programme

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 hope this article was informative.

Free online virus removal


Online virus removal can be a bit tricky at best - often trading their 'free' service for (other apps with) malware, spyware and other viruses. A better option might be to install a free antivirus program instead. AVG Free and Windows Defender/Microsoft Security Essentials (for Windows-based PC's) are both great options - among several others, and won't cost you a cent.

A computer virus will damage your computer and could destroy your data.
You should install a virus scanning software on your computer.
There are free virus scanning programs on the Internet, I recommend these.

I help how to remove trojan/other virus from my window 7 laptop.please help me.


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

http://us.norton.com/nortonlive/

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.

How can I remove a virus?


Ok. To remove a virus, use some verified software that can be downloaded open source (free!) at no cost. Just download the software, then click scan. Here are my list of recommended software + price (Search on Google):
PC Doctor (Free version free, paid version more protection) AVG Antivirus (Same with PC Doctor) Avast! Antivirus (Paid) Symantec (Paid) Norton Antivirus (Paid)

My computer has a virus i want to remove the virus


I fyou are able to use your computer (I assume so, seeing as how you posted on here)

first go to http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

Do the tiny installer, and run a full system scan, it will take a long time.

This should get you cleaned up enough to enable you to get a real-time scanner installed. I recommend AVAST, AVG in my 15 years of experience is sub-par. It has been unable to remove viruses on customer computers on many occasions.

Avast Home Edition is FREE and requires you register with your email address every 14 months at NO COST.

download it from here:

http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html

after it installs it will ask you to "Do a system scan at boot up?" click YES and it will do it's thing after it reboots. This will also take a very long time, but after this you should be virus free.

I did a scan on my pc and it detected 38 virus th


The easiest and lowest  cost thing to do would be to download Avast!. It is a virus protection software, and if you google search that name, you can download a free trial.  After you download it and you start to set it up, it will ask you if you would like to do a boot time scan on your next restart.  Says yes, and when you restart your computer, it will do a virus scan before booting into windows.  This allows it to remove threats that may be in running memory.  It is very slow, but does a very good job at getting rid of viruses and whatnot.

Virus problem


Hi, viruses are quite easy to remove, and shouldnt cost you anything if done correctly.

uninstall any virus software you have, download this software and install it
http://www.softpedia.com/get/Antivirus/Panda-Antivirus-Titanium.shtml
update it and scan the whole system, it will pick them up and remove them, then once its took off as many as it can, uninstall this virus check and install a different one like this

http://us.trendmicro.com/us/products/

do one more scan and your as good as new...

you dont have to change the virus checker the second time, but alot of virus checker dont always pick up them all so always better to scan with two different ones to make sure there all off..

All the best

Please completley remove the norton security from my computer...trying to run something comcst says you need to do something to rmove it...please do asap ...thank you


Go into Control Panel, then Add/Remove Programs. Wait for the list of all programs to load up.

Go down through the list and look for Norton Internet Security. Remove it. It will take a very long time, sometimes 1/2 hour or more depending on speed of computer. Reboot the computer after it has been removed, especially if/when it asks you to reboot after the process.

After rebooting, go back into Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs. Look for Symantec or Norton's Live Update, remove that as well. Also remove any other Symantec/Norton Anti-Virus or Internet Security programs as well. Then reboot the computer again.

Your computer should be much, much faster now. So now you need a new Anti-Virus program...

I've found in my experience that Norton and McAfee do more damage to some computers than good, besides the fact that they are severely over-priced. I would NEVER install either Norton (Symantec) or McAfee on anyone's computer. Matter of fact, I just had to remove Norton 2008 from a lady's computer today, an old Dell 2400 because her system was too old and slow to run new Norton.

My suggestions for much better anti-virus would be...

- Kaspersky Anti-Virus (search for it on Google, etc)

- Trend Micro PC-Cillin Anti-Virus (search for it on Google, etc)

- AVG Free Anti-Virus at http://free.grisoft.com, they also have more elaborate versions with more protection for a cost.

I personally use AVG on my computers, and my family does as well. It's very effective and gets out viruses that even Norton cannot remove.
