How to Remove a Virus
This page gives directions for removing a virus you have discovered on your computer. See 'Do I Have A Virus?' to learn more about finding viruses.
Once you discover a virus, first try to remove it with the same tool that found it. If this doesn't work, you will need to visit an antivirus Web page to see if removal directions and/or a removal tool is available. Here are some links for this:
