The easiest way to fix your problem is to go to www.avgfree.com. Download the latest version of AVG antivirus software. It's free to a home user. After downloading that, uninstall Norton (or the two will 'think' the other is a virus. After downloading AVG and removing Norton, reboot and AVG will find and take care of your virus.

How to remove virus


First of, your question is a tricky question.
There are many anti-virus programmes on the net. Free and pay. Things to keep in mind is virus come first than the anti-virus comes out. Virus programmers are always looking for weakness in a system and they write a virus for many purposes. Other annoying facts is even if the virus was killed or out of the programme, it is very hard to fix anything they have damaged. So, you have to keep in mind even though you successfully killed a virus you still need to fix damage it has cause. That is why IT people always recommend to back up your data, format your HDD and reinstall windows and the programmes you are using.
Said that, now let's get to the virus problem.
Free anti-viruses:
1. AVG
2. AVAST
3. Avira
4. McFee

Others
1. Norton
2. Microsoft - ForeFront, Security Essential (comes with Windows license version.)
3. Kespersky

The above anti-viruses are good in their own ways. As said before you need fixes, patches to fix the damage. They also have fixes once the virus has been identified. Check out their websites by google searching.

Good luck mate.

Two good software tools can help you to fix the redirecting virus with Google search.One is the registry repairing program and the other is the malware removal tool.

Google search redirects me to another site...how do I fix this?


That's a classic sign of a virus and or spyware.They redirect you to a site they control and try to get you to buy their virus protection.Reboot in "safe mode" and run your virus and spyware software.Make sure it's the deep scan so it clears your Restore files too.Also check your User Accounts for a "new" administrator.The virus will log on as administrator and control your computer so you can't delete the virus files.Let me know if this helps?

Cut the computer on and it said we had virus & trojans and that


Try to run virus detection software for free at housecall.trendmicro.com and get the fix on the website as well, since virus or trojans antidote or remedy varies. You may need to write down exact name of virus or trojan for fix. If not automatically removable, you may need to follow manual removal from the registry as well.

I would suggest that you use our chat support as well, for a more comprehensive diagnosis and solution to your issue.

Thanks! =)

Computer is infected with viruses


Blue screens as a result of infection mean the virus has corrupted the operating system. You can fix it by doing an operating system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. Depending on the virus, this may only be a temporary fix. If this turns out to be a temporary fix, then the sure way to fix it is to completely wipe the hard drive, completely reformat using NTFS, and reload the operating system, which I would recommend. If you have any problems during or after the reload, then the virus damaged the hard drive and it will need to be replaced.

Funey UST scandle.avi.exe virus


It's hard to remove that said virus because you cannot install or update your anti virus even in the said mode because the virus is close the program quickly or disable it. I fixed my costumer computer last week with the same problem. I remove the hard disk and installed to the other computer with updated anti virus installed (bitdefender internet security). I removed the virus then when i returned it to his original cpu i run the registry mechanical to fix the registry problem. MY customer is happy because he said his files and his computer working great now.

Virus problem


I would recommend installing an anti-virus program, you can get a 30 day trial of Kaspersky (leading A/V company) from HERE.

Download and install this. Once installed you can do a scan and fix any virus issues you have, and if it fixes your computer it may be worth while investing in an Anti Virus program for your computer.
