Remove Virus Or Desired Files Forcefully

Most of us face the issue when some files doesn't get delete even after trying so hard.
To delete those files which are infected with virus or not getting deleted we can use command prompt.

Each file and folder have the following attributes:

1).  Archive-A
2).  Read Only-R
3).  Hidden-H
4).  System-S

-(minus) sign before an attribute it means removing attributes and +(plus) sign mean giving attributes to the file or folder.

For example, attrib -r -a -s -h file.txt  this will remove all attributes from file.txt  and attrib +r +a +s +h file.txt  will give all attributes to file.txt .

If pen drive or other hard drive is infected by virus ,Command prompt is the best option.Follow the steps given below.

1) Go to the command prompt by start>all programs>accessories>command prompt or press windows key+r and enter cmd .

2) Go to the drive where you want to delete virus example write d: to go to D drive .

3) Type attrib -r -s -h *.* /s /d  and press enter .

4) Type dir /a .

5) Delete all the .inf, .exe , .dll, .log extension file if they are not your files by using dos del command .
