[Closed] Questions about viruses, etc

  1. I've just got a few questions about viruses and malware.


    1. If a virus is detected on a computer, and the antivirus 'cleans' or quarantines the virus, do I need to come here, post logs and get the computer 'cleaned'? Or will the antivirus program's actions have sorted out any problems with the computer?

    2. If there is a virus on one computer on the home network, and the other computers all have firewalls and active protection running, do they need to be scanned by antivirus and/or cleaned VIA THIS FORUM?

    3. Whilst waiting for a reply after posting logs, can I do a virus scan?

    Since you have a currently active thread- also with questions, please post these questions on that thread: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic167532.html

    I told you there and I'll repeat it here: You are asking general questions about specific situations. And I already answered these on the original thread.

    You can't 'talk' you way out of a malware infection!
