How Can I Get Rid Of Viruses Without Formatting The Drive?


Recommended Posts

My C drive has viruses in it. I have AVG FREE anti-virus installed on my computer.

I think that anti-virus software is also affected.

How can I get rid of these viruses without C drive format and O/S re-installation?

Hi johnlee and Welcome to The PIT!!

Start by downloading and running these two programs...:

SUPERAntispyware download, install, update and run a full/complete scan.

Malwarebytes here's how to run it:

Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to your desktop


* Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.

* At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.

* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.

* Once the program has loaded, select Perform full scan, then click Scan.

* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.

* Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.

* When completed, a log will open in Notepad. Please save it to a convenient location. Copy and Paste that log into your next reply.


SUPERAntispyware also produces a log, please post it also so we can see what's been found and quarantined.
