How do I remove a possible virus from a hard drive - using Win7

By BobC32 ·
I am using Windows 7 and a Dell Optiplex 9030 computer with 4 GB hard drive. Although I do not have much loaded on the system, the system says I have only 250 MB of space. Something is restricting the use of the hard drive. Additionally, our antivirus software cannot update. The hard drive appears to be infected with a virus. How do I confirm this and how do I remove it to regain access to full use of the hard drive?

To identify if a virus is harming your computer, you can use pre-loaded utility software such as Windows Defender to scan your computer for the virus. However to fix the problem more efficiently, you can:

STEP 1: Use Rkill to terminate suspicious programs
STEP 2: Use Malwarebytes to remove Trojans, Worms, or other Malware
STEP 3: Use HitmanPro to Scan for Malware and Unwanted Programs
STEP 4: Use Zemana AntiMalware Portable to remove Adware and Spyware
(OPTIONAL) STEP 5: Double-check for malicious programs with Emsisoft Emergency Kit
(OPTIONAL) STEP 6: Reset your browser to default settings

I Would suggest you should use some softwares to autodetect the viruses and then use a good antivirus like Bitdefender Antivirus to restrain the malware attacking your windows.

Hey there! I have also encountered the same problem on my HP laptop which I used in combination with Windows 7. Most of my files were corrupted in it and many of the titles were eaten up by the virus itself. Having found no solution at all I dialed <a href=""> Avast Customer Support </a> and thankfully my issue vanished quicker than expected. you can even try that I hope that it helps.
