How Much To Remove A Virus From A Laptop?

I want to know how much money does it cost to get a virus removed from a laptop. And other repair prices for laptops.
How much does it cost to take it to shop and get it fixed.

softwareguru answers:

Price varies a lot. You might check with your school, some geek might be happy to do it for a few bucks. Small shops often charge less, but not always.

Virus & Spyware Removal $149

Try this free procedure first before you pay a small fortune.

Sometimes you will be unable to update the software below. Run the scans without updating and they will fix this problem. Then update and repeat the scan. It is best if you run the scans in safe mode.

First install, update and run Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware Free Edition (full scan)

Second install, update and run SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition (full scan)

Then run a full scan with your antivirus.
If you use AVG free version this is not acceptable as it does not remove Rootkits. Avira free, Avast free, “Microsoft Security Essentials” free are three excellent antivirus programs. Do not install more than one.
