    Unable to delete a virus infected file in windows vista(x86) OS

    I am using windows vista of 32 bit. My windows has been infected with Win32.jeefo virus. On finding its root, I came to realize that the problem is caused by the file filerepository located at win\sys32\driverstore\filerepository but I am not able to delete this file. How can I delete this file.My friend suggested me to Open as Administrator to delete that file but I havenít create any other user account so how can I open as Administrator.

    Dear Friend,
    Today there are lots computer who install a virus on the computer of a person to steal his/her data, mislead, irritate him/her.
    Some antivirus can't trace and delete that virus files.

    Anyway, lets talk about your problem, i don't know that it will help you or not, but i think it will and follow the steps given below :

    1) Directly close your computer from the main plug. (Don't use shutdown option or power button in CPU)

    2) Now, turn on your computer and select SAFE MODE.

    3) After, your computer starts in safe mode, go to the folder where your virus file is located.

    4) After you find your virus file, delete that file.

    If it is deleted then shutdown your computer and start it. it will work good.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hope this helps you.

    Hello,

    Friend the main aim of the virus program is to get into your system files and corrupt your system.

    You just cannot simply delete the source file.

    If it would have been that easy then people would have never bought the anti viruses.

    So if you want to get rid of those infected filed from your computer you will have to install an anti virus.

    There are many good anti viruses available on the internet.

    Download anyone of those and get your system clean.

    http://www.filehippo.com/software/antimalware/

    click on the above link to download the antivirus.

    I would suggest you to go either for the Avast or AVG as both of them are free to update and they have game mode in them, which do not disturb you when you are watching a movie or playing games on your computer.

    Regards
    -Abhishek

    For deleting files/folders that can not be deleted, there are many methods to delete that file and folder. Complicated methods are by changing security permissions or boot CD etc.
    The easier method you can do is to use "Pocket Killbox" software. It can delete that file or folder.
    You can download it from this link :-
    http://www.softpedia.com/progDownloa...oad-27315.html

    Simply start Pocket Killbox and navigate to the file that was identified as a virus. Select delete on reboot and hit the red X icon on the upper right corner of Pocket Killbox. It will prompt for a reboot, select yes and the virus should be automatically deleted during startup.

    Dear friend,

    To remove the virus, first you should scan your computer with an updated anti-virus program.
    You can use Avast; Quick heal total security, Comodo antivirus, etc.


    If the problem persists, you should schedule a boot time scan with your antivirus.
    Most of the antiviruses available today have this feature.
    This feature works after scheduling the antivirus program and then restarting your computer.
    It cleans your PC without loading Windows operating system, means no interference from the operating system.


    You can also use antivirus rescue disk.

    Thanks!

    Dear Friend,


    If you are unable to delete infected file first check Antivirus update.

    And scan the whole system till scan complete.

    After scan complete it will ask for delete.

    then delete the virus.

    The various Antivirus are:

    Avira

    Avast

    AVG

    NORTON

    NOD 32

    etc...

    Thank You!!!!!!
