People keep searching for Antiviruses on web all the time and keep getting irritated of their computer when it gets hanged or any unwanted activity by viruses and malware in their windows computer.
Don’t you too keep searching for a better Antivirus every time you detect it on your computer? Give Up !! Those Antivirus are taking you nowhere.
I have also heard from experts that those Antivirus companies themselves add some non-harming viruses when you download those free versions of software; and when you scan your computer, the same viruses are detected in results which makes you believe that this Antivirus software is detecting viruses outta your computer and its a great software.
I have not used Antivirus since I have discovered this tip to stay away from them.
I am going to show you one easy and a little (very little) time consuming process but 150% tested and working. Its all about Restoring from your desired point.
I would strongly recommend you format your Computer once. Don’t worry as none of your files will be misplaced. And if you have any files and data in C:// drive, just shift it temporarily to another drive.
Now, assuming that you will follow the above step, we will do the main and most important part.
So now that you have formatted your PC, install the most desired software and applications you will use, like Google Chrome, Mozilla, Team Viewer, VLC Media Player, iTunes and all the basic and most used applications.
Once all the applications are installed, create a system restore point for your Windows.
There is a quicker way to do it but I will show you exactly step by step guide so that you don’t mess up.
Hit the Start Menu and right-click on “Computer”, and then select “Properties”.
A window will pop up taking you to the System Control Panel. Click on the “System Protection” link on the left hand side.
You will now get into the System Restore section.
Select the C: drive as viruses and malware attack that drive in 97% of the cases. If you want you can select other drives too. Click the “Create” button to create a new restore point. You will be asked to name the restore point which will make it easier for you to identify it properly when you will restore your computer.
OK now you are good to go. Click on Create button, and then the system will create the restore point. This will take a bit of time depending on your RAM.
When it’s all done, you’ll get a pop-up message saying it’s created the system restore point successfully.
Boom! You are done with the main part of creating a system restore point, i.e you just created a backup plan for your computer and ready to say throw away the infection if it ever comes.
You can now start using your Windows computer as you want.
If you ever feel like the applications are giving trouble or even a slight feeling that you have some guests (virus and malware) in you computer, you can immediately restore to the point where you had started with all the needed applications at the place you kept…without formatting it.
Here’s how you can restore it to the place you created.
Again go to the Start menu and search for “System Restore”
When you click on it, you will be asked for user account control, Click yes. The restore Window will then appear.
It will show you two options. One will be the recommended one, i.e mostly the point before the latest changes took place in your computer and secondly it will ask you to choose one.
This totally depends on you. You can either select the very first restore point you made or you can scan for affected files and programs that caused intrusion of virus.
Click Next once you care done with the changes and now you Computer will be again brand new with no viruses and all your software and applications will be there waiting for you at the desktop.
I think it is very easy to get your computer away from infections except for formatting the computer again (Which I totally agree)
But according to me this is the best way to get rid of viruses and no Antivirus will work this effective as this method does. I would really recommend using this method rather then going for paid antivirus.
