There many times when the virus, malware, spyware or adware that has infected your computer is impossible to get rid of. Sometimes your computer is unusable and the virus, malware, spyware or adware has hijacked your computer or at least appears to be doing so. If a computer has become so deeply infected with a virus, etc. threat that is unusable then the only option most people know of is to completely wipe out their computer and start from scratch, aka “Reformat Your Computer”, aka “Complete System Recovery” aka “Reinstall Windows”. I used to think the same way until several years ago when I was messing around with heavily virus infected computers at work and tried something out just for the hell of it.
You will need the following items…
1 – A separate Windows PC that is clean of all viruses
2 – An external hard disk drive enclosure (this is the only thing you have to buy)
3 – The free program “Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware” must be installed on the separate PC
4 – The free program “SuperAntiSpyware” must be installed on the separate PC
5 – “Kaspersky Anti-Virus” 30-day free trial (or you can buy it if you want but it is not necessary since you only need it for a few hours max) must be installed on the separate PC
6 – A Phillips or flathead screwdriver to unscrew your desktop PC case. If you have a laptop you will need a small version of a Phillips or flathead screwdriver
NOTE: You can buy external hard drive enclosures at almost any computer store that sells parts. I prefer to buy them online at Amazon since they usually sell them for the lowest price. I have tested out many brands. So far the best quality brand I have tested is Vantec. I own a Vantec HDD enclosure at home and use 3 of them at work. None of them have ever died or failed me, unlike almost every other brands I have used.
Here are links to various Ventec hard drive enclosures. You only need to buy one but there are 4 different types that work with different laptop and desktop models, old and newer.
– For DESKTOPs with a SATA Hard drive (newer computers)
– For DESKTOPs with an IDE Hard drive (old computers)
– For LAPTOPs with a SATA Hard drive (newer computers)
– For LAPTOPs with an IDE Hard drive (old computers)
IMPORTANT! If have not already checked out my basic to intermediate tutorial on “How-To Thoroughly Remove Malware, Spyware, Adware and Viruses from your PC for Free” I strongly suggest you do that first. It will remove a lot of viruses, malware, spyware and adware from a lot of computers. It will show you basics things I skipped in the advanced video tutorials below like where and how to download the 3 programs I use. It will also show you what scan settings to use on Kaspersky Anti-Virus, which is not covered in the video tutorials below.
