Ever open an email and the next thing you know, you are staring at a screen full of error messages, pop-up windows or “system” messages that look real, indicating some computer problem or another.? Are you left scratching your head wondering what happened and worse, how to fix it without loosing all of your data you haven’t got around to backing up yet?
Well, you have probably been infected by a computer virus, or a piece of malware. In general the infections are classified as a “virus”. They may be of a whole host of more technical classifications, but you get the point. These little programs can cause great headaches if you don’t know how to deal with them or you simply ignore the problem thinking it is a real computer error but things seem to be working for the moment. This is a mistake, as the longer you let these things go, the deeper they can bury themselves into your system, making it almost impossible to remove without a full system reset.
Anti-virus removal is not a simple process and very rarely is it an automated one. Everything from hidden folders to registry tweaks can be required to fully remove mal-ware from your system. If you are not sure of the process, it is best to let someone with experience handle the disinfection as you can very easily erase important files and folders, leaving your system useless and unable to boot.
If you decide to try it yourself, I recommend Avira for anti-virus, Spybot for malware removal and hijackthis v.1.99 to stop hidden services from running. If you want a professional removal, I am glad to help. I have never failed to successfully remove a piece of malware or a virus from a computer in 20+ years.
