forcing a virus to shut down

October 14, 2009 at 15:56:51
Specs: Windows XP
I have a virus in my computer that is totally annhialating my system, I can destroy the virus if it stops running or shuts down for even 1 second, I want to shut it down through DOS but it says 'access denied' the admin! Corrupting it is optional :)

The first solution I would recommend is rebooting and pressing F8 just before windows XP starts, and then booting into "Safe Mode". There you should be able to remove the virus from where it is installed.

If that fails, or you don't know where the virus is located then it may be worth trying AVAST and performing a boot-time scan. It will scan the whole system for viruses before it boots up so viruses have no chance of getting into the system
