If you need PC help, but you're short on money, you may feel helpless. There is however, absolutely no need to feel so!

This article will demonstrate how to take advantage of such programs.

Virus removal

If the issue with your computer is that it is infected with a virus, then this is one of the easiest things to fix at home. There are two things to be concerned with while doing this. If you keep regular backups If you have kept regular backups of all the data on your computer, then the best choice is to reformat your computer. This basically means completely wiping the operating system off of your hard drive disk, and then reinstalling a fresh copy. This guarantees that any infection which could not be removed previously will be off of your computer. After this, you would obviously, just put back all the data that you already backed up. Independent research is recommended to discover how to do this process while endangering your computer the least as possible.

If you don't keep regular backups

If you don't keep regular backups, then this could be a more sticky situation than if you did. There are still more options to remove a seemingly permanent and resilient virus or Trojan installed without your knowledge. One such way is to download a tool called "Norton Removal Tool".

Another option to repair your infected PC is to download "AVG free". This computer help program and virus remover are available free of charge from the famed anti-virus company AVG. Just go to AVG.com to get started and install it. If all of these options fail, you may want to consider doing more independent research on how to remove the virus. As soon as the virus is gone, always remember to back up your data to avoid such a catastrophe later on!
