How to cure a virus-infected computer</a>

Open your browser, and there advertising banners, pop-ups and various mucks - your computer is infected with a virus. But do not rush to wring your hands and rip out your hair.

In most cases, you can cope with this problem on your own, without resorting to the help of a master.

You will need

  • - access to the Internet
  • - flash drive



Download Dr.Web CureIt! And Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool. Do it better on some other computer (not infected), and then copy these programs to a USB flash drive.


Insert the USB flash drive into the USB port of your "sick" computer.


Do not copy programs from a USB flash drive to a computer - this is superfluous. Just double-click on their icons with the right mouse button to get started.


First, scan with Dr.Web CureIt !. This program will detect most of the viruses that do not sit deep in the system. Then you can delete them. After uninstalling, restart the computer.


If the advertising banners and others have disappeared from theBrowser, then the work can be considered finished. But there are viruses such as delta search (a search engine that produces suspicious sites in the results) that sit very deep in your computer system. The second program Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool will help you find and destroy them.


Launch Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool and wait. It will scan the system for a long time. It may take about an hour. But then you can remove all malicious software. You will need to restart the computer.


Now you need to clear the cache of all browsers on your computer.
