Removing a virus without using any anti-virus software

Picture of Removing a virus without using any anti-virus software
Virus is a computer program that can copy itself and infect computers.
The term "virus" is erroneously used to refer to other types of malware, including adware and spyware programs that do not have the reproductive ability.
A true virus can spread from one computer to another (in some form of executable code).
One of the ways by which a virus can infect your PC is through USB/Flash drives.
Common viruses such as 'Ravmon' , 'New Folder.exe', 'Orkut is banned' are spreading through USB drive .
Most anti virus programs are unable to detect them and even if they do, in most cases they are unable
to delete the file, only quarantine it.So in our post we use command prompt to remove harmful files that
any anti-virus can't. 

These are the steps.

This is a great topic. In addition. open internet properties,connections tab then click on lan settings. be sure that use proxy server is not checked. go to programs tab then check on the search provider but ask, trovi etc..then remove them. Use google or bing to be sure. Uninstall programs as well like storm alerts, mindspark toolbars and the like, ask etc. to be sure, just keep the programs you know you installed. If you have issues removing it, use the revo uninstaller portable. Install Adblock - very reliable to block pop ups.
