This topics answer is Dynamic and no straight method would be the most efficient because virus removal requires you to consider the situation and take logical steps that are unique to your infected computers situation.

With that being said here is the standard step by step protocol for removing the most common types of virus infection.

The first step is to shut down the system. If the start and shutdown way doesn't work then you need to do a hard reset by holding down power button until it shuts down.

2. We now need to start the system without letting the Malware start. To do that, we need to boot into safe mode.

3. Once in safe mode open web browser and search for Malware bytes. Download it. It's FREE and a top Anti-Malware removal tool used by experts in the field.

4. Once Malware bytes is installed open it up and let it update it's database to the newest version.

5. On the main screen choose perform a quick scan and click the SCAN button. When the scan is done just follow the on screen instructions to remove the Malware.

6. Now shut down the Computer and restart it normally.

7. When the computer starts, run another Anti-Virus software like Super Anti-Spyware, Spybot search and destroy, bit defender, or any one of your favorites. After that completes, start up Malware bytes again and this time run a full system scan.

8. Once that's all done and scans come back clean, congratulations you've successfully Cleaned your computer yourself.


Happy Virus Hunting! :D
