Hi KKmbappi,

There are many ways on how to remove virus without losing the backup file which you mentioned especially for the infected files. First is to install a virus scanner on your Computer and make sure it is updated time to time. Don't use virus scanner that is just a freeware because it's not totally guarantee that it will detect updated virus most of theme can detect only outdated virus rather than the new one.

Second is to save the file which is infected try to heal those file, try to make way to save it especially for the important files if it really infected then the last option is don't allow the virus to be spread on your computer especially worms. Worms can delete files without informing the user, you will just shock finding out your file couldn't be accessible. Then install "DEEP FREEZE" to prevent scattering the virus. It's better to leave it there if you cannot heal it ,don't spread it, just leave it there that the reason why you need to Freeze it that's the purpose on DEEP FREEZE.
