There are some viruses such as Antivirus System Pro that prevent us from executing any programs used to remove them. The virus does not let us to run task manager, registry editor, antivirus such as Remove Fake Antivirus, Kaspersky, AVG, Bitdefender etc so that it always remain in the infected computer.
How can we remove the stubborn virus?
- Use Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 to remove the virus (it is the easiest way) or
- Find the virus file from internet by any possible way.
- Use System Recovery Console (for Windows XP) to remove the file. How? Click here. or by using Linux to remove the files. Most Linux distros have the ability to access and delete any file in windows. The one I use is Slax and Puppy Linux. Both of them are small in size, about 100MB to 200MB only. They are distributed as Live CD and can be installed in USB Flash Drive which I install both of them in my flash drive.
In Slax or Puppy Linux, we can locate the virus files and delete them. They can be used very easily as they are very user-friendly just like Windows. Try both of them, you will like them.
- Reboot your computer.
