How to make our computer free from viruses?

Asked By 270 points N/A Posted on -

I have experienced difficulties in managing my PC now. I found out that some of my important files were lost, eventually crashed, and performed slow.

There's something happening in my computer, that I don't know. Since, I am the only one using it and I can't remember if I manually deleted my important documents. Is there a possibility that a virus is the cause?

If this could be the cause, how to avoid the virus?

I mean, how to make my computer free from viruses? Is there anybody who can give me idea on how to fix my computer?

Please help me.

How to make our computer free from viruses?


Hi! Davidsons,

Actually I have encountered the same issue before on my PC. Yes, it is a virus which replicates your files, and malfunctions your computer. This is a common computer problem, that leads to user's frustration in handling computer that is infected with virus. Please be guided that the biggest computer problems is in the user's side, because we neglect this following:

Anti Virus: Virus was created to destroy computer system. So primary options is to install Antivirus software in your computer to protect it from unwanted programs. Updated Antivirus is a good tool against virus. (Licensed software recommended).

Maintenance: Cleaning the outside should be equal with cleaning inside, in other words "hardware and software should be maintained properly". Updating virus and the Antivirus is proportional. Therefore, Antivirus should be updated before the virus. Update and scan your computer regularly.

Firewall: Windows OS has firewall package to prevent unauthorized access to your computer. There are a lot of firewall packages to set-up for prevention.

Open/browse reliable sites: Please avoid of clicking pop-ups or links that you are not sure what it was, and virus might be installed in your computer after clicking it.

Use licensed application software: Updating all software regularly, helps to maintain good condition and compatible patch in your computer system. It is very much secured if you update license software rather that pirated which is not recognized by the manufacturer.

Removable devices: Manage your storage devices such as flash disk, flash drives and floppies by scanning it before exploring what's inside, in order to avoid spreading of virus.

If you do all those things above, you may not get any frustration in managing your PC. Thank you!

If possible, you can recover your important files in your PC. Make a back-up all your files and then format your PC. Be guided with above solutions.

Scan all your files and transfer it in your PC. Lost files can be recovered using 3rd party software (file scavenger).

4. Try not to visit those sites that cause virus to attack your computer. And Enable the “LINK FILTER” in your Antivirus software. (Most of the software provides this service) The Link Filter will help you to detect which site is GOOD Ranking and which one is BAD ranking. So it would be helpful for you.

5. Try to format each of your drive. I know it’s really tough since many important documents of yours are kept inside the drive. So I would suggest you take them to a portable drive or pen drive then format the drive and after that bring back your files form pen drive or portable drive after scanning them.

6. Some basic tips are given below:

a. Put the show hidden file option enabled to detect the hidden file and delete them
b. Update your Antivirus regularly.
