    Virus On My Computer!!!

    Ok, i got a question. How do you delete a virus on a computer? I have AVG software for my computer and it scanned my computer and says I got a virus. So, how do I delete it? Another question, does rebooting my computer also deletes the virus?

    Thanks!

    rebooting does not delete as far as i am aware. but after you finish scanning isn't there an option to delete?

    Ya there should be an option to quarentine it or delete it. Or you could just get a Mac and not have to worry about virus's.

    Exactly. People think that you have to be a genius to run linux. That is how Mac captured such a large number of switchers. I recommend ubuntu distro, very easy to use and install. Also just partition if you don't want to give up windowz completely.

    Press Ctrl-Alt-Delete, look for the process that virus uses, terminate it, go into the directory the virus is located in (.exe file) and delete it

    I dunno i have a real good system. lol for me all i gotta do is run the scan-wait the comp does it for me lol (not uncommon). I just gotta hit finish and it is deleted automatically if i have one. its crazy, in the past 2 or 3 months my computer has deleted about 79,300 viruses. im no wiz on how to work my comp to the fullest but i know how to work it pretty good.
