  1. Back up data: Save your essential data to an external drive. Be sure to scan this drive and its contents after you delete the virus; you do not wish to re-infect your computer after clean-up.
  2. Reboot in Safe Mode: You have to put off virus from running when you try to delete it. To perform this, reboot in safe mode. Safe mode works only the Windows operating system and a few key programs. This is a way to limit any malware from launching. Restart your computer and hit the F8 key on the keyboard repeatedly until you get to a black screen with the option of restarting in Safe Mode. Choose “Safe Mode with Networking” so that you can still get on the Internet.
  3. Download Virus Scanner Tools: I commend downloading two to three dissimilar programs to find and delete the malware. One may do the job, but three will almost definitely do the job.
  4. Run Virus Scanners: Download, do double-click to install, agree to all the defaults they recommend and then run each. This will take a while. When the programs locate a virus or any distrustful items, let the programs to remove the files.
  5. Reboot Usually: Reboot your computer usually; no need for safe mode. You should be back to normal now. If you have files backed up on an external drive, plug it in and use the security programs you downloaded to scan that drive before you open/ transfer any files.
  6. Add Security: How did you get that virus in the first place? Even if you do not recognize, this is clear you need more protection. Antivirus available at Slox Software is a real-time virus scanner that you can make use of as your ongoing protection.
  7. Damage Control: Viruses are an opportunity to identity theft and spam. So after you cleanse your computer it is a good idea to check your credit. You should also change all your passwords, principally your email password and any passwords for your financial institutions. Here is my method for creating easy-to-consider reliable passwords.
