Introduction: 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.

Step 1:

 Run the command prompt by going to start and type cmd on the search programs and files.

Step 2:

 Select the virus affected drive
                 (drivename: )
examples
C:
J:
F:
D:
E:

Step 3:

 type attrib -s -h *.* /s /d then press enter

Step 4:

 type dir 
        the dir command shows you the content of the drive

Step 5:

check if there is an unusual .exe file
                 if there's an autorun.inf file rename it

                    (rename filename.extension newfilename )

Step 6:

by doing the following steps you can now acces the drive without affecting the virus

 Go to my computer

Step 7:

Select the drive

Step 8:

Delete the harmful files
             *you can also delete the harmful files using command prompt
              ( type del filename)

Step 9: Video

This will guide you on how to perform the operations.

 THANK YOU AND ENJOY! :)

Hey guys, so i was using my Computer completely normally ...

and suddenly i had this file called : Marker.Script.CIH.dll and of course i scanned it with F-Secure , nothing happened. Then i tried VirusTotal and it shoud that it was a Trojan horse that tried to be an EICAR test file , VirusTotal said that over 20 anti-virus softwares detected as a TrojanScript2.2 and i got an idea for a fake virus . Now i can say it... Sometimes viruses help :D

I've tried this,but had no luck. the person that wrote the virus evidently has taken pertinent measurements to prevent people from getting rid of it this way. So, I am wondering if there is any other, more advance ways of doing so. The file looks like a Chrome, sorta, browser, but its name is Cassiopessa. Has anyone heard of it? Thank you for any help and inputs.

Case 1: Not able to delete the files from d drive: you can check with the command prompt( Open command prompt and select the drive and rename the file with command (rename filename.extension newfilename )) after renaming you can delete its. and check whether the process is running in or not from task manager. remove unwanted startup ( with 'MSCONFIG' command)

Case 2: system slownes: clear all the temp files ('%temp%' command and clear all the entries with temp folder). un install if duel antivirus present there. check the infection with antivirus (i prefer quick heal anti virus ).
check the startup entries with taskmanager.
