Windows 7: Avast antivirus

Avast antivirus

I recently ran a scan with my Avast anti virus program. Several Threats found came up in the results. There we're options to delete or isolate them. I tried both but nothing happened. How do I get rid of these viruses for good? Thanks. Hal.

Boot your computer into Safe Mode (Restart PC then press and hold the 'F8' key until you see the Advanced Boot Options screen, and select Safe Mode with Networking). From there, download and install Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, update first then do a full scan. After the scan, make sure every threat is checked and click on 'Remove Selected'.
