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?

Hi,

Now a days 90% of the computers are attacking with viruses because of using more internet services.

Removing Virus from your computer

Hello,

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
