How to remove an obstinate virus from your computer

By Jakiepan Subscribe to RSS | January 21st 2012 | Views:

One of the biggest issues and security threats in any computer is the computer virus, spyware, Trojan or any other malware program. They can cause many issues such as a slow PC, freezing, registry problems and many more. These malicious programs are designed to harm your computer in many ways. On the basis of their functioning and damage area the viruses or malware are divided into many categories. For an instance a malicious program which steals private and sensitive information from your computer is called spyware instead of a Virus.

Similarly a malicious program can be of diffident kinds and due to this reason the virus removal tools are also separately available online. So it could be possible that if you have bought an antivirus program thinking about to remove a spyware and it didn’t remove it. Thus don’t be surprised by it.

There are many occasions where your antivirus software is not able to eliminate all kinds of viruses from your computer and you might need to remove it manually. Though it is not easy for a normal user to kill a virus manually however it can be done if you follow few below points carefully.

If your security software is up to date it often removes all viruses from your system but if not you need to take the driving seat and need to remove it.

For removing any virus or malware before anything else try to verify the name of the virus/malware. If the name is known it makes your task very easy and the virus can be identified.

Use the task manager

If you know the name of the virus you can locate the corresponding process of it. Kill the process from the task manager first of all.

Use Windows search

I have personally searched many such viruses which were causing many issues such as slow PC, computer freezing and many more. Use the Windows search if the name of the virus is known and remove it completely from the folder.

Use Windows registry

Using Windows registry to remove the entry from it is very difficult and involves many risks in it. If you delete any incorrect value it may create more issues and registry problems in your whole computer. However if you are sure about the virus you can use CTRL+F option to find the desirable value and can remove it from the registry.

It is also possible that the virus has blocked your registry editor or task manager options so that you cannot use them to remove it. In this case in most of the PCs you can use windows group policy.

It can be reached by

Open the Start menu, and type gpedit.msc in the search line and press Enter. (See screenshot below)

NOTE: This file is located at C:WindowsSystem32gpedit.msc.

Here you can enable or disable all Windows in built features and functions. This is the important place and a virus may also attack this component.

Usually these are the most appropriate ways to remove a virus from your computer if still you are not able to fix it you might need an expert help or you may also need to reinstall the Windows.
