Oh no! Not again! Another computer virus? So what should you do? You could just reinstall your entire operating system, but this can be a royal pain. You could try to clean it up manually, but this process takes forever, and it’s not always reliable.
Also, if you try to just pick out the virus, you will often do more damage to your computer than already has been done. Therefore, you should only use this method if you are one hundred percent sure of exactly what you are doing.
If you want to try to figure out what the problem is yourself instead of hiring someone to clean up the mess, try looking online. Make sure you know exactly what the error messages say, as this will help you pinpoint what is going on.
If you are going to try to self diagnose your problem, you will need to know a few things. These things will help you on the road to a normal computer again. These things include: How the problem started, when the problem started, and also what the problem is. If you can figure out what the problem is, you have half of your mystery solved.
If you decide to search the internet to see if you can find out what the problem is, don’t use the computer that is affected by this virus. Use a virus free computer that has an anti virus system on it. If you would have had a good anti virus program on your computer, you probably wouldn’t be in the fix you’re in right now.
If you think you can remove all the virus files from your computer, you will need to go into the registry of your computer. Be real careful here, you could very easily delete files by mistake. When they are gone, they are only gone if you need them.
If you are brave, take your other computer that has an external hard drive and place the infected hard drive into the good computer. Only do this if you have a really good anti virus program on your computer. This should help you pinpoint all the problems on your hard drive.
Be forewarned, this is a really good way to share a virus. Make sure you have a high quality virus protection, and that it has been recently updated.
