Removing virus from PC seems really a difficult task for a non-technical person because of the complexity of the virus that it creates.
Viruses are spreading around the world with an amazing speed that was never before thanks to the advancement in technology – cloud computing etc.
Before digging into the detail, you must have knowledge some basic things.
ISO: ISO is an image file that has the exact copy of the CD or DVD or Bluray. For example, if someone says, make the ISO of Windows 10, it means, you should use any ISO making software. In this way, that ISO will have the exact copy that you can use for the future purpose on your PC’s hard drive. Microsoft and Linux develop many ISO of Operating System that you can burn on CD or DVD and can install the ISO on your system.
Bootable Antivirus: Such antivirus has the ability to remove viruses from the boot even not a single operating system is installed.
Rufus: A tiny portable software application that allows you to make your pen drive (USB Flash Drive) bootable so that you can install Windows without a DVD.
HOW TO MAKE THE ISO OF WINDOWS 10 OR ANY?
There are two ways by which you can make an ISO of any operating system:
1. Download the ISO From the Official Website
It’s one of the easiest ways to download ISO because for that you don’t need a DVD or software. You just give the file to the ISO bootable maker, Rufus, it handles the rest of the work.
Are you facing difficulty in getting an ISO of Windows 10 from the official website?
Just Click Windows 10 ISO Direct Link
2. Make the ISO of the Windows You Have in DVD:
If you have a DVD of any Windows, you can use software like Free ISO Creator. Select the partition name from “Browse” where Windows DVD is located i.e., if Windows 8 DVD is in G:/, you will click it. Note: Not open the inner folder. It will not make the Windows ISO.
HOW TO MAKE USB BOOTABLE WITH THE WINDOWS ISO
Suppose you have downloaded the ISO of Windows from the internet or you have made from the DVD that you bought on the last Valentine Day. You have to follow the simple steps to make the USB Flash Drive bootable.
Download Rufus and run.
Click the DVD-ROM icon as shown in the picture, select the ISO file that you’ve made, then click “Start”. A pen drive of 8 GB is recommended.
Wait until the transfer is done. Restart your PC with the USB you inserted. If you’re using Dell Laptop, you will press F12 for “Boot Menu”. You can see the option of your laptop for the boot menu by writing the model or company boot menu via Google.
THE 3 WAYS TO REMOVE ANY VIRUS:
I am an expert in removing virus of any kind here are some ways you can get rid of.
1. INSTALLING A FRESH WINDOWS:
It’s the best way as per my view if the virus is so strong that it doesn’t allow you to download any anti-virus from a website as well as it creates so many folders or your files become hidden as if you’re playing hide and seek.
It would be hard to understand, let’s me explain with a few steps:
Make ISO of Windows that you want to install on your PC as shown above.
Make bootable USB Flash Drive via Rufus as shown above.
Install the Windows, and don’t install anything after being installed. Anything means anything even not a driver software.
IF YOUR PC IS AFFECTED WITH DANGEROUS VIRUS, AFTER INSTALLING THE WINDOWS, DON’T EVER TRY TO OPEN ANYTHING EVEN INSTALLING YOUR DISPLAY DRIVER.
Install Antivirus like BitDefender via USB, once it’s installed, please scan.
Wait until all the viruses are killed and eliminated.
1. You’re going to install Windows from the PC of another person that has no virus and is not affected. Because your PC is already affected, it will not allow the antivirus to install, even it’s installed, it will not work.
2. You will never install anything from your PC as well as never open any partition because it will activate the virus again spreading on your PC again.
2. SCAN HARDDISK FROM ANOTHER PC
If you can’t do the complicated task mentioned above, then this task might be easy for you.
You will bring your hard disk to your friend home, he will install anti-virus on his PC, he will attach your harddisk to his computer; your hard drive will be scanned.
Before attaching your hard drive, he must have an active antivirus, because your hard drive virus will try to hack its system too. If he has Bitdefender, then it will handle all.
3. USE BOOTABLE ANTIVIRUS ISO TO SCAN VIRUS
It’s also one of the easiest methods to remove a virus from your PC or laptop. For that purpose, you burn an ISO from the provided antivirus company then you install, and scan. It will scan the whole hard drive, clean it up.
Difficult? Watch this video or follow these steps:
Download BitDefender Rescuse ISO
Make it bootable via Rufus as shown above.
Restart PC, boot with the USB Flash Drive, and scan.
- Please don’t make the pendrive bootable if it has a virus of any kind.
2. If your Windows get corrupted, then you need to install because during scan a lot of Windows files are deleted because of the dangerous infections.
