    Hi,

    Try to take backup of your files from the system or move files to D drive, then, re-install the who software as Flash it. Make sure you spend around Rs 300 for Anti-virus to protect the system for at least 1 year, it helps for all like protect viruses from PC, Data card, Online viruses etc.

    Free downloading Anti-virus software is no use of much as it has very less duration as a sample given and no guarantee that it will work for a said duration.

    Save your PC by spending Rs 300 to 400 than crashing it overall. There are few and branded Anti-viruses are available in India, namely McAfee, Kaspersky, Symantec, Norton, Avira, Avast and AVG etc.

    Thanks,
    Hafeezur Rahman

    Hello Reddy,

    My response is going to be a long one.

    First you have to drill down to the source of viri you are getting.

    1. USB Flash Drives
    This is the biggest culprit most of the times. Unfortunately there is no utility that can disable the Auto Run. It means every time you insert someones USB flash in your system there is a risk of a file getting executed automatically through Autorun.

    Remedy : I have found that the best thing is to keep a live CD of Linux around. Just scan your flash disk with Linux live CD for Autorun.inf. 99% of the times I have found that the Flashes have viruses.

    2. Email.
    The second mode of spread is Email. Never open any attacment that ends with .exe, .com or .bat extension. Even .zip , .rar etc have compressed executable that can be run autmatically through winzip ( extract and run setup.exe option).

    Steer clear of any email that has an attachment- Even if it comes from a reliable friend- his address book could have been spoofed.

    3. Internet

    Harmful and Malicious Activex Controls, cookies, javascripts etc are everywhere. Use Firefox it's less velnurable than IE.

    4. Torrents/ Pirated Software

    Invariably I have found that the softwares Key generators and cracks have the virues. Don't take chances with Executable files on Torrents.

    5. Housekeeping.

    Install an Antiviru
    Take Regular backups
    Install a firewall

    If you have a virus in your system- my advise would be to do a clean format rather than trying to remove it.

    6. Antivirus Debate

    Many people say that one brand is better than the other. Actually I have used all- Norton, Mcafee, Trend Micro, Kaspersky....

    The truth is - Some AVs are good with a few viruses and other are good with others. What Norton detects is not necessarily detected by Mcafee and vice versa. I have found that AVG and Avira are as good as the commercial paid AVs.
