Question about Webroot AntiVirus with AntiSpyware & Firewall: Windows

    I would suggest that you try these security programs instead and they will actually work, however there can not be any active security programs on your PC when you install them. These two programs will definitely purge your PC of any viruses, spy-ware, and mal-ware, rootkits, or hackers with a back door into your system, and be sure to run the Malwarebytes on a full scan after installing the program and checking for updates, and then restart the PC when the program completes, and the program will most likely tell you to restart the PC to complete the removal process, restart the PC and then run Malwarebytes again on full scan to be certain that all of the mal-ware has been purged from your PC. When installing these programs you do not have to install any of the options like "google toolbar" and the only option that you should check is the "link scanner" from AVG, and un-check any other options and do not install any of the other options. Before installing the AVG security program be certain that you have disabled and then removed any other security programs from your PC, or a conflict might occur and even if it does not cause a conflict, the operating system of your PC will be very slow trying to handle two security programs, and will eventually cause the hard drive to fail.

    Try these two programs and I am sure that you will be very happy with their performance and efficiency, and best of all they are free programs and the free editions truly do what they were meant to do without having to purchase anything, and they do it very well indeed. I have not had a threat get into my PC since I have started using these two programs two yers ago, and it is actually quite boring now without having to fight any PC infections. Let me know if you require any further assistance.

Download AVG 2011 free and malwarebytes free.
Run malwarebytes in safe mode (F8 on boot up)
boot into safe mode with network support, download malwarebytes, run update and do full scan.
Before you scan, TURN OFF system restore ( start / accessories / system tools )
Anything found in that area cant be removed, its protected, so turn it off, you can turn it back on after you have cleaned your pc

How can i removed the viruses on my pc?

Two of the more easy, reliable and free anti-virus software you can download are:

Either one of them will always guard every aspect of your computer and online activity. You MUST be online for any anti-virus software to update it's engine and virus database regularly. Also, MALWAREBYTES is a free anti-malware that guards against other kinds of dangerous computer bugs, and works very well.
Once you've updated whatever anti-virus software you have, then run a complete scan of all your drives and put all viruses into quarantine or repair the files, or remove the nasties completely.

How can i remove virus

Removing viruses, though technical, is yet a very simple process if all the required steps are properly followed.
The basic steps are:
  • Buy or download a reliable antivirus software
  • Install the antivirus software
  • Update antivirus software with the latest virus definitions
  • Perform a complete system scan
Install an Antivirus Program in the System What is Antivirus program? An antivirus is a program that searches for, identifies and removes potential viruses existing in the computer system.
Antivirus software: Some of the most commonly and reliable antivirus programs available in the market are -
  • Symantec Norton antivirus
  • AVG antivirus
  • McAfee Scan
  • Microsoft Antivirus
The antivirus software should be updated regularly to retain its effectiveness.
Before installing the antivirus, close all open applications and terminate any suspicious processes using Task Manager. Sometimes, you may need to boot into safe mode or safe mode with command prompt to delete suspicious programs and references to them in the Windows Registry (run regedit from the command prompt to open the registry editor).
Search engines are excellent tools to find out whether a certain process is harmful or not. You can also get steps on how to remove a specific virus manually.
Removing the virus beforehand might be necessary, as some viruses will not allow an antivirus to operate. However, if you are not successful, you may still continue with the installation.

Scan the System to Identify and Locate the Virus Usually, the antivirus will run automatically when the system reboots after the installation. Therefore, it might identify the virus automatically. Moreover, you may want to run a quick system scan to locate the virus.
Troubleshooting the Virus Infected Areas After the antivirus identifies the infected areas, the next step is to rectify those areas.
Methods of Eliminating Viruses
Generally, the antivirus adopts one of two methods to eliminate the virus:
  • Removing the virus - When the virus can be easily identified and can be removed without affecting other files, then the antivirus removes it from the host place.
  • Quarantine - his is done when the virus cannot be easily identified removed from the file and the removal of virus means the removal of the complete file. In this method, although the virus is not eliminated, it is rendered inactive by moving the file into "quarantine" and renaming it.
Perform a Full System Scan Even after the virus is removed from the system, the next step is to scan the whole system to ensure that no infected files remain.

What do u when your system is rebooting on its own

If your system is rebooting on its own then first step is to make sure that your system is free from viruses.The best way to check it is run a scan on your system with a good and updated anti virus.

If any viruses found then the best option is you can format your system.
After scanning if viruses are not found then the best option is to repair your system .

Repairing your system will not affect your data.

System has been attacked by viruses. Antivirus not working any more

Try to 'restore' to an earlier time, or to 'recover' to factory settings to delete those viruses.
