A computer virus is a kind of SOFTWARE which is very harmful into computers. It can harm or affect our documents, files and other applications on your computer.

Take note that a real virus can't affect or spread to your computer without a human assistance.

Computer virus is actually one of the biggest fear of computer's new users. Viruses are actually created by computer users also.

You can avoid getting a virus by installing antivirus on your computer and make sure that your computer firewall is always on.

Most of all, don't go to a harmful sites and do not open a file or documents which you think has a virus.

Hi friend,

For primary action you can use any updated antivirus as like Norton or Kaspersky. But you have to use the latest update for this condition. If it can‘t clean that virus then you have to do something more about it.

1. Install an AntiSpyware as like SUPERAntiSpyware. It will appear in this window.

2. Restart computer and press f8 to run the computer in safe mode. Now perform a complete scan with SUPERAntiSpyware and delete all threats that it found. Now restart the computer normally.

3. Now come back in windows environment again and before doing anything use any updated antivirus as like Norton or Kaspersky to perform a complete scan.

This process will delete all threats from PC.

A computer virus is not like the viruses that humans get, although its effects are the same, they are mostly harmful to what they infect.

Viruses are programs that are created to perform certain functions, mostly malicious functions like messing up your operating system, getting your personal information or using your computer to perform other functions that would be harmful to other machines and their owners. 

The best way to be protected from these viruses would be to be cautious with anything you do especially on the internet.

Make sure you have an antivirus software installed as well, this would add to your protection and would detect any malicious software or activity on your system.
