    Default How to get rid of windows 7 Security virus?

    I have the windows 7 security 2012 virus. I can get rid of it by doing system restore, however it always comes back shortly after. I have tried scans with avast, superantispyware, malware bites, and spy bot, I can't get rid of the thing! Please someone give me some insight on how to rid my computer of this.

    It is because a lot of malware will reside in the system restore volume.
    Read this on how to get rid of it.

    Make sure to follow step 1 where it says Print out these instructions...

    Getting rid of that infection is a lot of work. You need to carefully follow those instructions.

    My advice is simple: if you aren't an expert at fixing these things, back up your data* and reformat your computer.

    (*Backing up data can be a little dangerous because in theory the virus could copy itself into the backup. But it's at least better than continuing to use the computer without reformatting. One safer way to deal with this, if it is necessary, is to use a different operating system (eg, a mac) to go through the backup and make sure the virus isn't there. I'd only suggest bothering with that if you get reinfected once, though-- probably not worth it.)

    What mlegg suggested is a good idea if you want to try to repair this. But it's hard to know if you've really done a complete job if you aren't an expert, so be careful.

    Default virous

    Avast is better. I use good result from this.
    My suggestion, newly setup windos XP Or 7/8, you use Deep freeze software. When you install that soft you click only main C drive. As this your C drive is locked. When you restart, for locking c drive no virus copying, so your system not miss any file, so your Pc is altimes ok.
