Can you get rid of a computer virus yourself ? Do you have to physically go inside the computer to do it or what is the procedure involved? My friend has one & it's going to cost him $50.00 to get rid of it.
Thanks

isetheby, Most virus and trojans can be dealt with at home. If you would post what the problem is or if you don't know post the symptoms we can put you on to a cure for all but the worst of them. Also post what OS you have. You don't have to go into the machine to fix this. If you don't know the name of the possible virus get an online scan(free) here http://housecall.antivirus.com/housecall/ This will find all bad files and either clean them for you or list them so you can deal with them. After you know what you have get back if any trouble and we'll come up with a cure.....Mike
