How to get rid of virus' and clean the computer?

  milkit 13:58 28 Dec 2007

I have a lot of virus's on the computer, probably other stuff too, I cannot seem to clean it. I have run ad-aware and spybot. I have the free version of avg, but it only tells me I have 1 virus, but does not clean it. I just d/led Clamwin and it told me I have 8 virus's or so, but does not clean them, only says they are there.

I used to use microtrend online, but I have win98 and it seems that microtrend online does not support this anymore. I have tried Panda and some others too, but they give me the same problem. Can someone tell me what to do please?

it is a bit pointless to suggest using asquared at present as it is not updating properly for win 98 computers

try thay lot

the trend micro scan may take a time to load the definitions on the first attempt so just go with it and let it load

ps; if all else fails all is not lost as there are specialist forums that will get you to use specific tools to diagnose your problem and help you to clean up

try WinASO, its free it will delete 10 errors/ scan. Just keep scanning until PC is clean. Good programme.

If you want to repair your windows registry, I would recommend to use RegBooster(click here). It is very easy to use & has excellent features. You can download the software directly from:

re-reading this lot, you now have both avg ?7.5 antivirus AND Clamwin from

click here which I cannot as yet see does an on line scan ? Am I correct that you now that TWO antivirus programs installed?
and I for one cannot comment ON the effectivness OF the clamwin having never used it nor any dealings with it
