How To Manually Remove a Virus From Your Computer
#1

 Take this little steps and your PC will give you the best.
Step 1
Run msconfig and look for suspicious files. Here we see one. It’s unknown, and it also has a startup key that we’ve never seen until recently. Uncheck it from start up and/or from services.
     If you think you are being monitored. Open Command Prompt and do the following...
Step 2
    Boot into safe mode. This can be done by checking the box in the “boot” tab in msconfig.
Step 3
    Run msconfig in safe mode and we can see it’s checked because the virus is persistent. The virus will not be running however, due to the fact that we are currently in safe mode.
Step 4
    Navigate to the registry. We are doing this in safe mode because some viruses disable the registry.
Note: Be sure your folder options are set to show hidden files and folders...
Step 5
Navigate to the location of the virus. If you are not sure which one is a virus, locate to all of the following possible locations:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServicesOnce
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\Run
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Runonce
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServicesOnce
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Policies\Explorer\Run
Step 6
     Section a) if you are unsure if it is a virus of not, right click the suspected file{s} and click modify.Since you are unsure of the integrity of the file, put a “:” in front of the value data. This will disable the start up of the virus but it will still be in your computer.
     Section b) if you are certain that you’ve found the virus (like I have in the picture) you can delete the registry entry.
Step 7
     Be certain it is gone; it shouldn’t even be listed as a startup item anymore.
Step 8
To be certain, use Cleaner to scan the registry and fix any issues there are.

       Hopefully this should’ve gotten your computer rid of any viruses. It is recommended to download the latest version of an Anti-Virus program and scan your computer fully even after doing this.

Please Note: If you still feel insecure it is recommended to do a clean reinstall of Windows. After reinstalling, install Microsoft Security Essentials as it is the most trusted anti-virus.
