Re: how do i get rid of the virus on my laptop i hate using my laptop because of it.

Hi Misskatina2!

 

There are two ways to remove viruses from your computer:

 

1. You can download and install a paid or free version of a certain antivirus on the internet and scan the computer after installation.

 

2. There are some tricky viruses that will not let you install an antivirus much less let you perform a system scan. So to remove it, the only thing that can be done is to back up your files and have your computer reset back to it's factory defaults to clear and clean the hard drive.

 

If my post answers your question, please mark it as "Accept as Solution". 

 

Good luck!

Hey there!

 

Could you please specify what virus do you have or at least how does it look like.

 

My brother runs an infosec blog and follows all recent stories. There were two big waves of bad viruses recently, here are their names and removal instructions

 

FBI virus: http://privacy-pc.com/how-to/remove-fbi-moneypak-virus-if-safe-mode-doesnt-work.html

 

Cryptolocker:  http://privacy-pc.com/how-to/remove-cryptolocker-virus.html 

 

Again, and in case these are different viruses, please let us know what do you have.
