Here is what I would do.

First I would start off by downloading the free trial of ESET NOD32 Anti-Virus. Afterward I would scan my system (In-Depth Scan) with the free trial of NOD32 (It doesn't use a lot of system resources). Next I would download the free version of Ad-Aware 2008. After the anti-virus scan finished I would scan my system with Ad-Aware (Full Scan). Next I would download and install Spybot Search & Destroy. After Ad-Aware finishes scanning I would start a scan with Spybot. Next I would download and install AVG Anti-Rootkit Free. After Spybot finishes scanning I would run an in-depth search on all hard-drives with the use of AVG Anti-Rootkit Free.

If that doesn't whack it, fighting this thing might not be worth it. Reinstall the windows operating system after you back up any files which you absolutely HAVE to keep.

AVG is what I use; it's free.

There are also others like AntiVir, Trend Micro (free version is Housecall, over-the-internet scan).

Try AVG.

Also, if you know the specific virus, you can always google for a removal tool for it.

HOW I DELETE VIRUS HALP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1?


The best way to get rid of a virus is not to get them in the first place by running Internet Security Software. My favorite is Kaspersky Internet Security, I've never had a virus and I go on all sorts of websites.

Since you already have a virus, here are some things that you can do to get rid of it:
First, buy a professional anti-virus software program or download a free one. My favorite free anti-virus software program is AVG Antivirus.
http://www.avg.com/us-en/free-antivirus-download

If you cannot install a software program because the virus is so bad, you can try an online virus scanner. My favorite is Bit Defender's online scanner. It is free to use.
Free Online Virus Scan

Sometimes viruses turn out to be a result of something other than a virus like Malware, Spyware, or Adware. These nasty problems are not always caught by anti-virus programs, so you may need a combination of an anti-virus program and Malware Bytes (also free) to get rid of your problem.

Good luck to you!

My gx270 PC runs very slow after installing anti virus. what might be the problem?hat might be the reason?


Some anti virus software can use up a lot of system resources and noticeably slow down a computer. The newer and faster computers don't suffer from this problem as much, but on an older computer like your's it can be a problem. I've used Avira (free) on older computers without a problem:
http://www.avira.com/en/support-download-free-antivirus

I don't usually recommend Microsoft products, but Microsoft Security Essentials is not only a very good product and free, but it runs well on older, slower computers:
http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/?WT.srch=1

AVG is a good free anti virus also, but it sometimes can slow down a computer a bit. I'm running it on some Netbooks with an Atom 1.6GHz. processor and it does OK. Only way to find out is to try it:
http://free.avg.com/us-en/homepage

Remember that you should only run _one_ anti virus software at a time, so don't forget to un-install the existing anti virus first.

If you purchased an anti virus product and you're stuck with it, this tip may help you speed up your computer:

Also, your may be able to increase your performance with a memory upgrade. If your not sure how much or what kind of memory that you have, download and run this:
http://www.gtopala.com/siw-download.html
Scroll down to the SIW Without Installer (English-Only) version. After it's running click on "memory" in the left margin.

Antivirus is basically a protection against viruses....

Basically it protects your pc from worms, trojans and viruses...

A computer worm is a self-replicating computer program.It uses a network to send copies of itself to other nodes (computerterminals on the network) and it may do so without any userintervention.

A Trojan horse, also known as a trojan, is a piece of malware which appears to perform a certain action but in fact performs many different forms of codes.

A computer virus is a computer program that can copy itself and infect a computer without permission or knowledge of the user.
