Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
After running an AntiVirus program make sure to write down the name(S) of any that are detected including the path if its given.
Especially some Trojans require more than just one action to remove it. If you don't notice any problems in performance don't worry but if you do, take these steps you'll be surprised that it isn't always gone.
***TURN OFF SYSTEM RESTORE***
1) Do a search on each viruses name (1 @ a time)
2) Right click on it selecting "open containg folder" or to that effect.
3) Take a look at surrounding folders if any, to see any others having at least part of the file name in it. These are the ones you right click "delete" and quickly empty recycle bin.
4) Now do a search for prefetch. If you have more than one look for C:Windows. Hit Ctrl + A on your keyboard at the same time highlighting all files/folders. Delete/empty recycle bin.
5) Next restart your pc. This will flush out the different memory locations.
If you still think your pc is infected post back. I'll try to help with finding the others locations viruses tend to hide.
