Computer Security & Viruses/poweliks infection

Advertisement


Question
my Windows 7 home premium desktop was infected with poweliks. I have run Avira and Panda and AVG and it has helped but it still is there. Any advice?

Answer
Hi Theo,

Please follow the steps on this page: malwaretips.com/blogs/remove-poweliks-virus/#malwarebytes

There are several other removal methods, but this one is the simplest in my opinion.

Please keep in mind, I cannot guarantee it will be completely removed using this method (you may have other issues I'm unaware of), so please let me know the results of your removal attempt.
