Virus heat removal

  johnpalmer 08:19 15 Feb 2008

How can I remove VirusHeat 3.9 from a Sony laptop, without having to buy a spyware detector software programme.

I have tried several FREE downloads, which find the virus, but insist you buy it before the removal takes place.

Can anyone help.

Update it, and then start in safe mode and run a complete scan

I had Virusheat and a few others a couple of days ago. Given the same recommendation as 'buteman' gave. Worked well for me and only took about 25 mins start to finish using the automatic removal option.

Hi I recently removed virus heat successfully and completely from my laptop after a very long time searching and downloading "FREE" adware removal tools.I finally found one that is free to download and use -Malwarebytes Anti-malware from Once you've installed it run the quick scan. You then run it again on reboot and virus heat should be removed completely as well as the very annoying tool bar!

Good luck
