The Computer. To some, it is the greatest invention in modern history, to others, it's their worst enemy. You do not have to be one of those people. You do not have to turn on your computer to error messages, frozen screens, and even lost files. Those days are a thing of the past. You can easily get rid of computer viruses 3 easy steps.

Step 1 - Scan Your Computer

You've probably already figured out you have a virus, whether it's by the frozen screen, constant error logs, or the missing files, it's pretty obvious. Now it's time to figure out WHAT virus you have. This is the easiest part. There are 100's of virus scanning and removing products on the internet today, some are even 1000's of dollars. Luckily, there are many websites that offer programs for under $50, but work much better than the overpriced options. Below are a few examples:

RegSWEEP - RegSweep is the latest in PC error diagnostic and repair. RegSweep can do a complete scan of your entire file system and registry in under 2 minutes! All corrupt files, paths, and registry keys will be analyzed and automatically repaired so that your PC functions just as when you first purchased it, Guaranteed.

Registry Fix - This software will inform you of where the errors exist, and what potential errors they might cause. Registryfix will scan for errors related to ActiveX controls, DLL issues, Windows explorer errors, Windows installer issues, Internet Explorer errors, Iexpore and System32 errors, Runtime errors, Outlook and Outlook Express Errors, EXE errors, Svchost errors and a wide variety of other system issues.

Netcom3 - Netcom3 Internet Security Software speeds up your computer, detects and removes spyware and adware, Viruses, Trojans, Dialers, Worms and a host of other dangerous parasites.

These are three of the best programs on the internet. I have used all of them, and had great success. All of them allow instant downloads, and they even allow free virus scans. I do recommend buying the software, as it will come in handy if viruses return.

Now scanning your computer is easy. All programs basically run the same. You open the program (probably through a shortcut on your Desktop), then find the "Scan PC, Scan Files, Scan Now, etc." button. Click that button, and it should begin. Some programs take over an hour to finish scanning, others can be done in minutes. When it is finished, depending on the program you chose, it should have all your corrupted files and their locations compiled into a list. Now it's time to get rid of them.

Step 2 - Removing The Virus

Many viruses are temporary internet files you've managed to pick up while surfing the web. All these files are stored in the same folder, something along the lines of C:\WINDOWS\Temp. These corrupted files are disposable. So in your program, select that file off your list, then find and click the delete button, and it's gone. Deleting a virus is that simple. The key here is to NOT delete important infected files, as your computer will crash beyond repair. So it is very important to identify where the corrupted file is, what the corrupted file is, and what it's function was. So take some time and look at the file's path, and make sure it is not in the "Program Files" folder, and if it is, make sure it is not related to a program you use frequently. Another folder you won't want to delete files from is your "System 32" folder. If the program your bought has a "Clean File" button, or something along those lines, always use that first. This way you don't have to risk deleting something important. If you can avoid deleting important files, you should be able to clean your computer without wrecking it.

Step 3 - Keeping Your Computer Virus-Free

Now that you've cleaned your computer, it's important to maintain it. This can be done by regularly scanning your computer. I try to scan my computer weekly, sometimes even more than that. This is simply because I have many valuable files on my computer I would never want to lose. I always recommend buying AT LEAST one anti-virus software, they always come in handy. If you maintain your computer's health, you too will begin to look at your computer as a piece of art.
