Viruses have become quite commonplace in today’s PC environment.  With “online” activity, such as file
sharing, networking, web browsing, email and the like – the likelihood of
getting  “ infected” is quite
high.  That said, virus protection
is absolutely essential.

There are a myriad of choices when it comes to virus
software; some good, some not so good.   But no matter how good your virus protection software
is, none can guarantee that you won’t get infected.

In the event that you do – here are 3 easy virus removal
techniques that most anyone, with a little basic knowledge, can perform.

1.    
 1. Booting
in “Safe Mode”

Safe mode is a special mode that boots a
system with only essential processes and services enabled. This will often
prevent viruses from loading, thereby making virus removal easier.

So how do you boot in Safe Mode?

 

WINDOWS
XP / WINDOWS 2000/ WINDOWS VISTA / WINDOWS 7

Turn on the computer and immediately Press
and hold the “F8” Key, which should take you to the “Windows Advanced Options”
Menu.  Use the “arrow” keys to
select “Safe mode” or “Safe Mode with Networking”.

2.       2. Launch your virus software

Follow the software’s instructions for
running a “complete” or “deep scan”. 
The software should identify the virus and give you the option to
“heal”, “delete”, or “quarantine “ the infected file or files.  Once complete, run the software again
just to make sure.  Often the
process will find viruses the second time around that was missed on the first.

3.      3.  Setup a regular schedule for “scanning” your
computer daily.  Most good virus
programs will give you an easy option for doing so.  Note: You should not
only scan your main hard drive, but any additional internal or external drives
you may have as well as any flash drives you may use.

Have you backed up
your computer lately?  If you

that, sooner or laterFind Article, you’ll regret it!

for?
