How To remove most viruses !

This is a Guide to help You remove most of the malware out there. However on really infected systems, it is probably better to
reformat the harddrive and install windows again.

Remember to Backup Important files BEFORE disinfecting Your PC (if possible)

NOTE! Removing Virusses CAN damage Your windows installation - It would be a good idea to have the windows
installation CD/DVD at hand - just in case!


Downloading our "First-Aid kit"

So, first we need to download a couple of programs, in order to disinfect the PC.

Download these tools, preferably on a Clean PC - save them to a USB pen or even better, a CD - otherwise save
them to the desktop on the infected PC

This is our first-aid kit!

NOTE! These tools are "ondemand" scanners they DO NOT protect "realtime" against Viruses/Malware. They should only be used to scan for and remove Malware.

NOTE! These tools, for the most part, have built-in virussignatures. They are only effective the day You downloaded them. For best results, please download new files, should You need to clean a PC in the future.


Removing the viruses!

Step1 - boot into “safe mode”

 
Turn on the PC and Boot into "Safe mode” - tap the "F8" key repeatedly after the BIOS screen
dissapears. Select “safe mode” in the boot menu.


Step 2 - Scan for viruses in safe mode! 

Once windows is up and running, in safemode !

                if the PC needs to reboot to clean the infections, do so, and boot into Safe mode
                if the PC needs to reboot to clean the infections, do so, and boot into Safe mode
                          if the PC needs to reboot to clean the infections, do so, and boot into Safe mode

Step 3 - Scan for viruses in Safe mode WITH networking

                            if the PC needs to reboot to clean the infections, do so, and boot into Safe mode WITH networking

                          if Malwarebytes is not able to update - install the update by running the “Mbam-rules.exe” file

Your PC should now be running normally, if not try one of the Boot CD's found in the "ToolKit" section on this site.


After the Infection

Keep the PC under observation the first couple of days after the infection. Do daily scans with Malwarebytes, ESET online Scanner and Your Antivirus program.

A good idea is to reinstall Your antivirusprogram with the latest version, since the virus could have damaged the installation.

You can also make additional scans with these on-demand scanners.
