How To Remove Computer Viruses

Back Up Your Data Before you remove any viruses on your computer you need to back up all of your data so that nothing is lost if your computer has to be reformatted. Click this link to see how to back up your data. Get Antivirus And Malware Software If you don't have antivirus software you can get a free one such as Avast, or you can get a free trial with ones like Bitdefender and Kaspersky. You'll also need to have a malware program to remove the things your antivirus software didn't get. A popular free program is Malwarebytes. If the virus stops you from downloading your antivirus and malware programs, you'll need to download them on another computer, put them on a flash drive, then upload them to your computer. Run A Virus Scan (For Windows) Using your antivirus program, run a full system scan and quarantine everything that doesn't look right after you run the scan. After you do a virus scan, do a malware scan. The combination of these two will remove the viruses and malware they find. When the scans are complete, restart your computer and make sure everything is in working order. Be sure to check your Internet browser and all the programs that were giving you trouble. If everything is working normally again, you're done. If your computer is still infected you'll have to reinstall your Windows operating system. It's actually faster and easier to reinstall windows than it is to try to find and remove some viruses. Reinstalling Windows will wipe your hard drive clean, so make sure you've backed up all your files and programs onto a flash drive or external hard drive. If you don't want to go to all the trouble of reinstalling Windows call Top Computer Docs to remove all your computer viruses and get it back in top condition. Run A Virus Scan (For Mac) To run a virus scan in Mac, you'll need to get Mac antivirus software such as Sophos or ClamXav. Once your antivirus software is installed, scan your computer for viruses then remove the viruses your find. When you're finished with your first virus scan, remove the antivirus program, upload another free program, and do another scan. The second scan should remove any viruses and malware the first scan missed. If the two scans didn't remove the viruses, you'll have to reinstall the operating system. To reinstall the Mac OS X Lion, hold down the  Command and R keys while your Mac is starting up. Select Recovery HD when you are prompted, then click the arrow below it to start the recovery mode. Next, select Reinstall Mac OS X from the Utilities dialog followed by the Continue button. Select the drive you want to install the operating system on, then follow the onscreen instructions to finish the reinstallation. If reinstalling the Mac operating system does not remove the viruses from your computer, or you don't want to go through all the trouble of doing it, call the Top Computer Docs to get your viruses removed. © TopComputerDocs
