How to Remove a Virus from Windows Vista

If you’re a Windows Vista user, you may have experienced the frustration of dealing with viruses on your computer. Fortunately, Eliza is here to guide us through the process of removing those pesky viruses.

To start, go to the Start menu and type “%temp%” in the search box. Press enter, and you’ll be directed to a folder containing all the temporary files on your computer. These files are often the source of viruses, so it’s essential to clear them out. Select all of the files and delete them. Don’t worry; you won’t lose any important files.

Next, check that all the junk files are cleared out by going to the Start menu and opening Google Chrome. From there, go to the Malwarebytes website. Download the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware software, and press “scan now” to check for viruses and other malware. This software is an excellent tool for detecting and removing viruses from your computer.
