How can I remove a virus from my computer?

Original title: I have a virus that attacked my operating system. I can not access virus scan to get rid of the virus. Is there some command prompts that I can use to scan and get rid of the virus?

I got a virus email facebook. Now I can not access my computer. Need a command prompt I can use to scan the computer for viruses.


If your computer does not start, you can use Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper to start from a CD or USB drive and a virus scanner. You will need to use another computer to download and create the CD.

If you post a description of the symptoms of the virus, a person may be able to identify and give you removal instructions.

    Whenever I start ANY browser (Firefox, GoogleChrome...) Baidu opens as my home page.

    -J' I searched my entire computer, I can't find a Baidu.exe or signs of Baidu in my PC. I found a shortcut edit 'target' that adds a command to open some files in the program data (I removed that), but Baidu still appears.

  • How can I remove an account from a computer profile without deleting data?

    Hello! I want to delete mozilla of a computer and delete my account profile so that all my data on this computer is removed. But I use the same profile in mozilla on a different computer and I do not know if my profile will retain the data stored on this computer after it is deleted in the other. Can you please clarify this issue for me. Thank you!


    If you want to remove your personal data on a reliable computer, then you will need to perform a secure erase to erase the data on the hard drive.
    Otherwise Windows will mark only data as being deleted.

    It is best to disconnect from Sync before you delete data on a computer to prevent other computers from getting affected.

    You can use the Profile Manager to delete a profile.

  • After removing a virus from my computer, I can't access any of my programs like Windows Media Player. Pop - up says choose program to open the file type.

    After removing a virus from my computer last year, I struggle to access most programs such as media player and other things.  When I try to open something, I get a popup asking me to choose the program I want to use to open this file. For some programs, this file is actually listed.  But for the most part, they did not.  For example, Nero express is what I use to copy CDs or DVDs.  I have to go into a safe mode to use it as well as using programs to run virus checks.  I was told that the virus had somehow corrupted or affected my file extensions.  I almost had cheated using powerful PC Max but did some research beforehand.  Any suggestions?

    original title: File Extension problems

    If you need to go to Safe Mode in order to use certain applications (for example, Nero Express), particularly antivirus scans, you most likely have not successfully removed all malware from your computer.

    How did you remove the virus from your computer last year?

    You then install an antivirus application?  Which one?  Are you still using it?  What's his current subscription? Its subscription has already been authorized expiration?

    What version of Windows, including service pack, do you use?

    What other anti-malware software do you currently use?

    Have you analysed recently with the following free tools?  Otherwise, download, install, update and run scans (not simultaneously) with each of them:
    MalwareBytes AntiMalware
    Like many also restore file associations.

    • Right-click on a file and select open with > choose program.
    • Look in the lists of programs (split in 'Recommend programs' and 'Other programs')
    • If you can't find the application you want to use to open this type of file, click on the button "Browse".
    • The "Program Files" folder should open (if it isn't, go to C:\Program Files
    • Find the program you want to use.  If you are looking in C:\Program Files\------, you determine which file is the actual program.  You should be able to tell from the icon.  If not, see note below)
    • Select the program (the exe file or the name of the program in one of these lists) and check the box "always use the program selected to open this type of file"
    • Click OK
    • Repeat the above for each type of different file according to the needs

    Note: If you need to determine the EXE file for an application, just right-click on the shortcut you use to start the program, and then select Properties.  Click on the tab "shortcut".  The 'Target' box contains the path name to go to the executable (EXE file) for the program.   For example, the executable file for Firefox is "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"

    There are a few exceptions, including but not limited to Microsoft applications, which use a more obscure reference to the target.  Word, for example, indicates the 'target' as a 'Microsoft Office' gray of no matter the version.  The real exe for Word is 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICEnn\WinWord.exe' where the nn refers to the version of Word that you have (Word XP/2002 is 10, Word 2003 is 11, Word 2007 is 12, Word 2010 is 14).

    If you need assistance with a shortcut that does not directly show the name of path, ask.
