    How to remove virus without installing antivirus

    As far as I know that in order to protect our computer from viruses or any other kind of malicious objects you should install updated antivirus program or firewall. The antivirus program only capable of removing those suspicious objects. Otherwise I should use alternative security programs like adware or malware remover, spybot remover etc. But still I am asking is there any way to remove the virus that has been infected in our computer without the use of or installation of antivirus program? If this is possible then how can we do that?

    Yes it may be possible to remove some virus manually without the help of any security programs but each and every one the viruses are dissimilar. So you require to find out which one is infected your computer. It is not possible for you find that type of those particular viruses. However you can list the issues in your computer and search them in Google for better solution by yourself. Hidden viruses cannot be located and removed manually. If you canít afford a good antivirus program then you can use any freeware version of antivirus which uses your little RAM and CPU. They wonít slow down your computer.

    If you are not able to install the antivirus program in your computer then it would be helpful if you go for online scanning. There are some websites which provides online scanning and removing of malwares and viruses which are infected on the computer.

    The majority of the virus threats are regarding the infection of the DLL files and some processes in the Windows based computer. So if you donít have an antivirus program or any other security program you need to check the startup processes and other running processors by launching windows Task manager. If you find any illegal or unwanted process running in the background which is causing much CPU and memory usage you will need to kill those processes manually. For further help you can install ProcessExplorerNt. Process Explorer will explain you information regarding which knobs as well as DLLs processes have released otherwise encumbered.

    As far as I know it is not possible to get rid of virus from your computer without the help of an antivirus program. It is the only way to locate, identify and remove or clean the virus or any threats detected in your computer. Sometime even antivirus program itself not capable to clean several virus from your computer. You should get alternative security tool to fix them. It is not recommended to use the Firewall in every computer which connected to the Internet. But without antivirus program I think you should get ready a bootable OS disk for patch up along with backup disk.

    If you are having active internet connection then it wont be possible to stop the virus. First thing you need is to keep the Firewall always active. This will block a number of incoming and outgoing connection. This will does not allow any malware to connect to internet and download stuff. The best thing here you can do is avoid having a internet connection and do not install new app. If you have a virus anyhow you have to scan your system with a good antivirus or else it wont be working.
