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.

My Mcafee antivirus is not working and system has found errors. Also, Internet explorer is not opening. It has showing syntax errors and asking for sending reports. kindly suggest what to do?


This problem actually arises when some of your System Files get corrupted. Getting back your original setup is almost impossible. You have told that your antivirus is not working, so there is a very strong possibility that your system has got corrupted by the virus infection. Firstly, I recommend you to scan your system with a well-established antivirus.....likely AVG Antivirus (if you are using Pirated Windows Copy) or Microsoft Security Essentials (if you are using Original Windows Copy). If this antivirus shows viruses and you are unable to get back your original system files, then go for Windows Update (for Original Windows) and your files be restored. If this one also does not help you, then go for the System Restore option. This can help you to restore your files to a better condition. You can find System Restore in the All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore option. Let's hope that this will serve you well.
