This is a suggestion!! 

 

I have seen in all the responses that to use tools to remove the infection and I have never seen any manual steps to remove an infection. I agree that there will be people who cannot do those steps manually. For them, I would suggest the tools.

 

Now coming to the point, what I would suggest is to have a forum set to have the steps to be done in detail. We can have a section for Major infections.

 

This is only a suggestion and rest lies in you.

 

Thanks and Regards

The Am I Infected forum should be used for that. I think that would be a good place for those who need additional help with the instructions.

So Grinler, do you support me with my views that we should also have a place where we can post the manual steps?

I think if a user needs manual instructions, then the Am I Infected or the Virus Removal Section is the best place for it.

More often than not, these infections generate random file names or have file names that sound legitimate but are in the wrong location.  Sometimes these files are, in fact, legitimate files that have been compromised, and sometimes the infection comes armed with a runtime packer that will rename the file and hide itslef somewhere else.  These things can make manual removal tricky, although not impossible.  People who are savvy enough to attempt manual disinfection without guidence from one of the many advisors on this site will be able to make use of the guides that already exist for specific infections.  Everyone else should probably just stick with posting in the existing "Am I Infected" forum.  However, if you have a guide you think might be useful for the removal of a specific threat, or some general guidelines, why not submit it to the administrators for review?  It couldn't hurt, and may help someone out quite a bit. :)
