In addition to whatever antivirus you may have get Malwarebytes and ComboFix froma clean computer. Boot into safe mode and run both from there. They find things regular AV software doesn't see.

That is not much information to go off of. the current high poweredvirus and malware removers are Avast! antivirus 5.0 and Malwarebytes. download avast and register it for free. if you dont want to connect it to the internet for fear it would infect other computers, download avast and malwarebytes by visiting www.avast.com and malwarebytes.org <--no www. in front of this) on your friends computer or the library, store it on a cd or flash drive and install both. avast will have a "boot scan" schedule it allow it to restart the computer. when it finds a virus, it will ask you what to do. select "2" by typing "2" and you can walk away from the scan to do other things while it works. "2" deletes all viruses it finds. the next thing you want to do when avast is done, run a malwarebytes full system scan. if you have multiple partitions or other attached harddrive, unless they have a linux operating system on them, scan them all. malwarebytes will scan. when done, it will pop up a notepad log of what happened. exit the log and click view all items or show all items. this will display what was found, you then select remove selected items. it will delete them and ask you if it can reboot the system. do this and your pc will be clean.

if this virus is a high level virus and locks you out of the registry, or keeps you from opening anything like a freakin CD, then you need to take your pc to the nearest computer center. they will remove the harddrive, insert it into one of thier own machine as a secondary harddrive. they will scan the harddrive with thier antivirus and antimalware (if they are seriously proffessional, which is sketchy as 60% of computer centers dont know what theyre doing). when they are done, they will tell you the results. just to let you know, some viruses mess with important operating system files, causeing severe damage, and forcing you to have your OS reloaded. always always(i dont know how many times i stress this to customers) back up your data at least once a week! because when you do get one, your stress level will skyrocket.

SOURCE: How to remove Search Safer Chatzum virus?

start up in safe mode with networking, then try to run malwarebytes as antivirus programs are virtually useless this day in age. If that doesn't catch it try hitman pro and after it is removed run ccleaner to fix the registry. If all of that doesn't pan out you need to do a full wipe/reinstall of the OS on the HDD

How to remove a virus/spyware infection off your PC


I remove viruses for a living and I wanted to share the ways that I remove and protect a PC from future infections.

I have learned that 95% of all computers have some form of anti-virus or anti-spyware preinstalled on the hard drive. 100% of the time it is trial subscription. Which means it will only last 30-60 days. If you do not renew your subscription your PC will eventually become infected.

Here is my plan of action.
1. Go to the control panel and chose software programs. This will show you what is installed. Look for Norton Anti-Virus or Live Update. Norton is the most common installed piece of software that I run into, so let's focus on Norton. If Norton Anti-Virus is not removed completely it will slow down your computer. It will cause your computer to become infected. It will cause blue screens. Believe me I know and I have cleaned hundreds of PCs'.
2. In order to completely remove Norton off your PC. You need click here. This will take you to the Norton uninstall utility page. Pick the version that you have and run it. Reboot your PC. Make sure Norton is removed by checking into the control panel and then go to program icon. This will bring up a list of programs that currently are installed on your PC. Make sure Norton or Live Update is not present. If it is highlight it and click on remove.
3. Now you need to download Malwarebytes, click here.
This is a FREE tool that will remove almost any infections that are out there and may be out there. I only use the FREE version and it has created a lot of business for me. Run it and make sure you update it. Then do a scan. A quick scan works most of the time. If any infections are found, just remove and reboot your PC. You should be virus free. If this does not work boot to safe mode and run Malwarebytes again. Your PC should be clean.
4. Now you need good Anti-Virus. I recommend Avast. Again the Free Home version works for me. If you really need the protection go for the Pro version. Click here for a Free home version of Avast. Install, register and reboot. Your PC is clean and you are now protected.

Check out my short video for more info. Click
Enjoy

My anti virus detect a virus... the virus is automatically remove fro my pc???


If the virus has automatically been removed from your PC, that means that the virus is no longer present on your pc, so you would not be infected by that virus anymore


however if you have been infected with a virus it's a good idea to do a full system scan to see if there is any other virus infections in your machine.

Whenever I connect any removable drive automatically 4 shortcuts got created of control panel.


You have a virus on your PC. Unfortunately, once you have this virus, it usually does not help updating your anti virus and running a scan since the virus is running in the memory of the PC and every infected file the anti virus removes - the virus just puts back again. Try one of two things to remove the virus:

1] First update your anti virus (if you dont have an anti virus, download the free AVG Antivirus and install that and then update it. Click here to go to AVG's website. Once installed - Boot your pc into SAFE MODE. This is VERY important otherwise the virus will load into memory and it wont help running the anti virus to clean the system as the memory resident virus will just replace any infected file that is removed by the scan. To boot your PC into safe mode: Read this article: Click here.

Once you are in safe mode - Open the Anti-virus console and do a complete system scan.

2] Remove the infected hard drive from your PC and install it as a secondary drive in a clean, VIRUS PROTECTED PC!!! ... i.e .. any pc that has the latest anti-virus system installed and is up to date!. Once you have installed the infected drive in the protected PC as a secondary drive, run a scan on the infected drive and remove the virus.

Once you have removed the virus, also scan ANY USB devices on that PC, including any Cameras, cellphones, photo frames, etc that you might have plugged into the infected PC.

Good luck

I am in huge problem with virus attack. Please help me


Is your antivirus updated? Always make sure to update your antivirus.

Use a clean PC and download a virus removal tool for the specific virus that infected your PC at http://www.symantec.com/norton/security_response/removaltools.jsp

Put your virus removal tool (or tools) into a CD or USB thumbdrive then insert it into your infected PC's USB port.

Commonly, you can boot via Safe Mode:
- press F8 key on your keyboard while the computer is booting
- then in the boot menu, select "Safe Mode"
- browse to your CD or USB drive and run the virus removal tool.

However, it is much more advisable to use a live CD tool like MiniPE and scan your PC to remove the viruses.
