I think that you didnt get rid of the virus yet.
Rerun your antivirus in safe mode , also run spybot and adaware in safe mode too.

Net protection


Are you asking about anti-virus? Everyone has a different opinion on anti-virus; but If you are seeking a FREE solution, my favorite is still Avast. It offers better real-time scanning features comparable to most of the paid solutions. For example, AVG has to scan your entire system every day and try to fix problems because the free version does not really stop attacks right when they happen.

Many people like Norton / Symantic but I don't. If their antivirus fails to protect you, you have to pay multiple times what you paid for the software to get it fixed. You also have to pay to be able to download their software again later (like if you change hard drives or change systems before your year of protection is up.

My seagate hard attacked by viruses that make the file shortcut. unfortunately all my files are hidden and I ca't get them back.


Are you able to scan the drive with an antivirus program? If you are able to actually go into the drive then on your toolbar go to Tools>Folder Options, then go to the View tab. Under the Hidden Files and Folders heading make sure it is set to Show hidden files and folders. If this is already set and you still can't see your files then it is a direct attack by the virus. Do you have an anti virus program, if so set it to do a deep scan of your whole computer including the seriously infected drive? If not there are quite a few good free anti virus programs on the web for download. Read my tip here on the best free anti virus programs: http://www.fixya.com/support/r6790239-virus_infection_best_free_anti_virus

Security adware virus Multiple virus programs (webroot/norton/etc) have been unable to completly remove this virus. I have a Dell Inspiron 520 with Vista 64-bit. Thanks


If MalwareBytes Anti-Malware tool and Avast anti-virus boot scan do not rid your system of the virus, you may have to remove the hard drive from the infected computer and using an adapter, attach it to another computer such as a laptop or another desktop. The adapter attaches to the hard drive and then uses a usb for the interface. They can be bought at computer stores for around 20 bucks. Once you have attached the infected drive, double click on the "My Computer" icon and then right click on the infected drive icon. Scroll down until you see the selection for either "scan with MalwareBytes" or "Scan with Avast". ONce these scans are complete, replace the hard drive back into the original system. Another great scanner is Super AntiSpyware. All these are free downloads at www.filehippo.com

After I had removed a virusprogram my computer will not start. I had non recover. Please help!


If your computer is unable to load OS from hard drive, try the safe mode by tapping the f8 key while the computer starting and in the menu options select safe mode and windows will load with limited settings and If you have any other anti virus that you are already using and if its a paid version, Update the anti virus and please perform a full scan and see if the anti virus that you have finds or detects any virus in the machine. If not, as suggested download avast free anti virus and schedule a boot time scan.

If you are loking for a free version of anti virus, I would suggest AVAST anti virus which has Boot time scan aswell, which will scan your computer for boot sector viruses also, before even the Operating system can load.

1. Don't panic! This golden rule may prevent the loss of important data stored in your computer and help you avoid unnecessary stress.
2. Disconnect your computer from the Internet.
3. If your computer is connected to a Local Area Network, disconnect it.
4. If the computer cannot boot from the hard drive (error at startup), try to start the system in Safe Mode or from the Windows boot disk
5. Before taking any action, back up all critical data to an external drive (a floppy disk, CD, flash memory, etc.).
6. Install antivirus software if you do not have it installed.
7. Download the latest updates for your antivirus database. If possible, do not use the infected computer to download updates, but use a friend's computer, or a computer at your office, an Internet cafe, etc. This is important because if you are connected to the Internet, a virus can send important information to third parties or may try to send itself to all email addresses in your address book. You may also be able to obtain updates for your antivirus software on CD-ROM from the software vendors or authorized dealers.
8. Perform a full system scan.


If your computer has suffered a severe virus attack
Some viruses and Trojans can cause severe damage to your computer:
1. If you cannot boot from your hard drive (error at startup), try to boot from the Windows rescue disk. If the system can not recognize your hard drive, the virus has damaged the disk partition table. In this case, try to recover the partition table using scandisk, a standard Windows program. If this does not help, contact a computer data recovery service. Your computer vendor should be able to provide contact details for such services.
If you have a disk management utility installed, some of your logical drives may be unavailable when you boot from the rescue disk. In this case, you should disinfect all accessible drives, reboot from the system hard drive and disinfect the remaining logical drives.
2. Recover corrupted files and applications using backup copies after you have scanned the drive containing this data.


Issue: How to manually delete or clean a virus?

Follow the step's below carefully to accomplish the task.

1: Start your computer in safemode. 2: If you know where the virus are hiding delete the executable file. 3: Open the registry and go to the keys below and add an : in front of the value of the string that you think its the virus. Like this, if string is "virus" and its value is "c:\virus.exe" change its value to ":c:\virus.exe". The : is like comenting out the value. But if you are sure its the virus you can just delete the string. Here are the keys you maybe want to look at: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServicesOnce HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Runonce
4: The virus can start itself from some other places to. win.ini is the most common files that viruses can use. Soo you should find the files named win.ini and system.ini and look through them and see if you find anything.
5: Look through the startup folder that is normaly located in your profile directory \Start Menu\Programs\Startup. 6: Try searching for the virus executable to see if its hiding some other place. 7: Finally look through the list of services that windows is running. This list is often located under control panel - administrative tools - services. After this 7 steps just reboot your computer in normal mode and try to figure out if the virus is still there.. If not SUCCESS if yes, try to go back to safe mode and hunt some more. Off course this 7 steps will not work on every virus out there, but most of them should be cleared.. Just every step that you perform to succesfully clean the virus. All the best, Regard's Pcs365.8

Format all your hard drive and do a clean install, One tip though, how to avoid Virus attack is not letting the virus to your system, how? for example, a virus came from your USB drive, it won't attack your system if you cancel all the autorun pop ups when you insert the usb drive and do not double click on it, double clicking on USB triggers the Autoplay and virus spreads out like a pandoras box, If you get what I mean it could save you from virus.

Install a good Anti Virus of your choice and always update the virus definition in order for you to be fully protected and be very careful on clicking links on some websites, anti virus has a feature that knows if a website has a potential virus or not, use it.
