i think i have got virus

Hi guys,it is the 4-5th time i have got virus in windows 7.i think windows 7 catch virus more frequently than windows 8,because windows 8 have windows defender which is good than windows 7's windows defender.i didn't installed any antivirus because i thought windows defender works as good as in windows 8 & tell me if i have any virus in my pc,e.g when i connect any usb or media device to my pc.
but i was wrong my friend gave me some videos in his pen drive & i just copy pasted them in my hard drive.i thought windows defender will tell me if it have any viruses or any problem.
just after that my laptop fan running very fast & when i open task manager my cpu usage goes to 90% but after some seconds it goes to normal 5-6%.
i already ran malwarebytes anti-malware latest version full scan & also updated it.but it didn't caught anything.
i also ran windows defender full scan,but no use.still fan running fast & as of this my laptop battery also draining fast.it only lasts for 1 & a half hour.before it lasts for 3-3.5 hours.
what i should do now,i don't want to re-install windows,plz help

Windows Defender in Windows 8 is NOT the same as Windows Defender in Windows 7. Windows Defender in Windows 8 is the same as running Microsoft Security Essentials which helps guard against viruses, spyware, and other malicious software. It provides real-time protection for your home or small business PCs.

Windows Defender in Windows 7 is an anti-spyware product, not an anti-virus product.

Windows Defender - Turn On or Off in Windows 8

Windows Defender - Microsoft Windows

I would suggest you install a full featured anti-virus suite on your Windows 7 computer. Without getting into the old argument of which anti-virus is the best, there are many reputable AV products available. Some are free and some are not.

Have you installed any new third party software recently? Windows defender is not enough as a security tool and I'd highly recommend to install antivirus software if you use the internet. I'd recommend doing scans with Microsoft Security Essentials or avast! . I would also recommend to always scan removable devices like usb pen drives, CDs and external hard disks with actual antivirus software before opening them.

Microsoft Security Essentials:

Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
  • Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
  • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
  • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.
Another useful one to use.


download AdwCleaner by Xplode and save to your Desktop.


  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
    Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • AdwCleaner will begin...be patient as the scan may take some time to complete.
  • After the scan has finished, click on the Report button...a logfile (AdwCleaner[R#].txt) will open in Notepad for review (where the largest value of # represents the most recent report).
  • The contents of the log file may be confusing. Unless you see a program name that you know should not be removed, don't worry about it. If you see an entry you want to keep, let me know about it.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that logfile in your next reply.
  • A copy of all logfiles are saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder which was created when running the tool.
Using AdwCleaner v3: Scan & Clean:
Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool again.
Click on the Scan button.
AdwCleaner will begin to scan your computer like it did before.
After the scan has finished...

This time click on the Clean button.
Press OK when asked to close all programs and follow the onscreen prompts.
Press OK again to allow AdwCleaner to restart the computer and complete the removal process.
After rebooting, a logfile report (AdwCleaner[S#].txt) will open automatically (where the largest value of # represents the most recent report).
Copy and paste the contents of that logfile in your next reply.
A copy of that logfile will also be saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder

yeah when the bar fills up mate, it should only have taken 10minutes 20 max depending on system spec, for it to be taking 2 hours is most unusual!
