Removing That Pesky Virus
I talk a lot about how easy it is to remove certain viruses from a computer and they are if you have the right tools. Everyone has different opinions on which anti-virus to use on an everyday level to prevent viruses. Some love AVG, Norton, Trend, MacAfee all the while hating the others for all they are worth. Fortunately I will not be covering any of the major preventative anti-virus and will focus solely on removing. Some of the best tools for removing a virus can be found at www.bleepingcomputer.com . It is a handy website that stores up to date versions on a clean virus free server. My favorites, Rkill, Malwarebytes, and TDSSkiller, normally if I run all three together 95% of the viruses I face are removed forever. RKill is great for stopping all known malware/viruses and letting you scan worry free, Malware Bytes is good at removing nearly anything, and TDSSKiller specializes in rootkits.
