Your Questions About Virus Removal Online

Posted by softwareguru on August 28, 2014

Carol asks…

How do I completely remove a virus from my computer?

OK, I have run Symantec Antivirus and found over 1,000 threats. I have removed them, but there are still the balloons (mispelled when they popup, leading me to believe they are part of the virus) at the bottom right on my toolbar, AND I still get popups when I’m not even surfing the net. So really what I am asking is, How in the heck do I totally get rid of the virus OR How do I completely wipe the hard drive and restore it back to when I first purchased it? Any help would be great!

Linda asks…

How do you get rid of win7 security removal?

I have a good virus detector on my Dell laptop but the win7 thing started popping up a few hours ago. I searched online for answers and followed what bleepingcomputer said and used malwarebytes. It seemed like it worked for a couple of hours but all of the sudden it popped up again. I tried running malwarebytes again but it didn’t work. Does anyone know what I should do. I don’t know how I got it and I can’t afford to lose the stuff on my computer. I need help!!!!
