Yes use kaspersky antivirus 7or higher version to delete any type of worms in ur system.it really works.having two antivurus is not recommended as it slows down ur system.if u find any type of that worms or virus present in c:\windows or c:\program files please don delete it , as it may make ur os unstable. so try restoring ur computer to earlier date

VIRUS


The Computer Virus.

Firstly lets understand 1 thing, Virus, Worms, Trojans, Malware, Adware, Spyware etc are different things!!.

A Virus ,, think of it as a program set to do malicious things without your consent.

Antivirus is used to remove a virus. There are different types of antivrus and people rate them differently. Some prefer this ,, some that,, I prefer AVG cause its free :). Any way to the point of this tip.!!

Here is what you dont know about an anti virus. This program will only detect a virus it knows about,, that's why u need regular updates!!! If it doesn't know a virus exist It will never find it. So any antivirus is only as good as it's updates!!.

How does it remove a virus ?

Simple! A virus usually alters the registry, renames a few files, injects it self in others and copies its own files to replace those it renamed. It Keeps itself in memrory and limits the users access to the computer.

The antivirus update contains the checksum of the virus so the antivirus app can detect it. Once found ,, the update also contains info on what the virus does ,, so the antivirus undoes it!..]

There it is quite simple. Remember your antivirus is only as good as it's updates!!

How do i get spyware off my computer? I keep being keylogged and am unsure how i have avg and norton scan daily could you please suggest a better anti spyware/malware


Although anti-spyware and anti-virus software are intended to protect your computer from advertisement pop-ups, slow performance and security threats, they can prevent some of your computer programs from running properly. This is especially true for anti-spyware software. This is why you may chose to disable them. If you disable either your anti-spyware and anti-virus software, take into consideration that you are making your computer more vulnerable to security threats like viruses, worms and trojan horses.
Disabling Anti-Spyware
  • 1Open the anti-spyware program on your computer. Sometimes there is an icon for the software located either on the desktop or in the toolbar on the lower right-hand corner of the computer, next to the clock. Double-click to open the software if it's on your desktop. Right-click on the icon if it's in the toolbar.
  • 2 Turn off the anti-spyware software by removing the check mark from the "on" button. If you have Ad-Watch Anti-Spyware, you will need to uncheck the word "active" and "automatic" to disable the software. If you are running SpyBot Tea Timer, click on "advanced mode" and then uncheck the teatimer.
  • 3 Click "yes" for the anti-spyware software to be disabled.

How i keep my pc safe, clear & malware free?


You can keep your PC Clean from viruses and malware by downloading and installing a couple of programs


Antivirus:
AVG Free
Avast Antivirus
These are both free and great, i personally lean towards the use of AVG

CCleaner
CCleaner is a program which removes all your temp files which is usually where malware is kept

and finally
Spybot S&D
Spybot removes any Malware software that has been installed


all these programs are completely free or have a free version


Hope this helps.

Trojans an worms


Use a good and updated Antivirus software to Scan, detect, remove and quarantine Trojans and worms and other Viruses or Mal wares. Trojans are sent by hackers to steal information to different machine from external media to invade your privacy. The worms are also intended toward destroying the data on machines and to cause problems. Worms can multiply themselves on machines and are somewhat slow to infect.

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.
