I have virus in my computer just can't delete it

In summary: The virus is in your computer, and it will activate every time you try to open a file. You can try to delete the virus, or you can reformat your computer.

Reformat your computer, AND DELETE THE ARCHIVE CONTAINING THE VIRUS! Don't try to run or unarchive it!

Hi there,

When experiencing problem with computers, the first thing to do is come down. Go and get a coffee or a beer (depends on the time of day or night). Then, you could give us a bit more information on how your "virus" got into your computer. Was it when you first booted after buying it? What is the behaviour of your computer now? Are you absolutely sure that it is a virus? Maybe you deleted (by mistake) some important files in your computer.

With more information, we will be able to get a global picture of the situation, and help you rightfully.

Cheers

Few viruses attack multiple partitions on hard drive(s). If you have a spare partition, install the OS onto that partition. You could buy a new hard drive and make that the primary drive, install the OS onto the new hard drive, then retrieve the data files from the old hard drive, without running any executables from the hard drive.

I have a pair of hard drives, each with multiple partitions, and an OS installed on each hard drive. I use one of the OS's to back up the partition with the other OS, using "backup" partitions on the hard drives. I also use separate partitions for OS and applications to reduce the OS partition restore time if needed. It's also useful for defragging: backup, compare, format, restore, compare. On Windows XP, after a restore, there's some quirk, that deletes all the files and folders in \windows\installer (hidden folder) after the system has been running for a while, but a second restore of the \windows\installer directory solves this problem (files and folders no longer deleted).

In spite of anti-virus tools, people still get viruses, some of which are very difficult to remove. Restoring the OS partition from a backup usually works best.

From what I understand, you don't really have a virus per say. You ran an executable that you might have not completely understand the behaviour, and it run different programs on your computer.

Have you tried logging into your computer as a non-administrator. The program might only run if an you have full permissions on the files?

1. How do I know if my computer has a virus?

There are several signs that your computer may have a virus, such as slow performance, pop-up ads, and strange error messages. You may also notice unfamiliar programs or files on your computer.

2. What should I do if I suspect a virus on my computer?

If you suspect a virus, the first thing you should do is run a virus scan using your antivirus software. If the scan detects a virus, follow the prompts to remove it. You should also update your antivirus software and run regular scans to prevent future infections.

3. Can I delete a virus manually?

It is not recommended to manually delete a virus unless you are an experienced computer user. Viruses can be complex and hide in different parts of your computer, making it difficult to completely remove them. It is best to use antivirus software to safely and effectively remove a virus.

4. What if my antivirus software cannot remove the virus?

If your antivirus software is unable to remove the virus, you can try using a different antivirus program or seek help from a professional computer technician. In some cases, a virus may be too complex or deeply embedded in your system to be removed by standard antivirus software.

5. How can I prevent viruses from infecting my computer?

To prevent viruses, it is important to have updated antivirus software and to exercise caution when browsing the internet and downloading files. Avoid clicking on suspicious links or opening email attachments from unknown senders. You should also regularly back up your important files in case of a virus or other computer issue.
