Hello.


If you feel you have a virus you may want to do a clean install and start over from scratch to over-write the virus, sometime that's the only, best option, have a look at the info below.

If you want to do a clean install anyway, this may be a better process, after you have copied out or made back-ups of the data you need to save to external media and want to do a complete wipe secure erase of the entire Hard Disk Drive / Solid State Drive, have a look at Step One of the Optimize tutorial below then boot the Windows installation media to start the Windows 7 clean install process.
