Win HDD virus

The Win HDD virus affects your computer through a Trojan horse. Your Windows 7 system becomes infected when you unsuspectingly click a link that carries the Win HDD virus. The Win HDD virus infects your Windows 7 computer by acting like a security application and scanning your computer. The virus diagnoses your Windows 7 system and shows false "critical errors" in order to scam you into typing in your credit card information. The virus may prevent you from accessing the Internet. To remove the Win HDD virus from your computer, you will need restore your Windows 7 system to a date before the virus affected your computer from Recovery Console.



Instructions
1) Save any unsaved work, if you can. As soon as you notice a problem with your Windows 7-based computer, save all your work and close out your programs to prevent the Win HDD virus from causing you to lose any data from an unexpected shut down.
2) Power off your computer. If the Win HDD virus is not allowing you to shut off your Windows 7 computer through the start-up menu, hold down the power button for a few seconds until the computer completely turns off.
3) Turn on your computer and press and hold the "F8" key before the Windows logo appears. A System Restore screen will appear after a few seconds.
4) Move the arrow keys to select your advanced boot options. Highlight "Repair your computer" and press "Enter."
5) Select your keyboard layout from the drop-down menu. For example, a U.S.-based Windows 7 user would select "US."
6) Select your username from the drop-down menu and type in your password. Once you have been verified, a dialog box of system recovery options will pop up.
7) Choose "System Restore" from the list of recovery options.
8) Confirm a restore point. Windows 7 will provide a list of date options to which you may restore your PC. You should select a point before you know the virus affected your Windows 7 system. For example, if your Windows 7-based computer was infected on Dec. 6, restore your computer to Dec. 5. If you are unsure, it is typically best to go back three days so you will not lose many system settings by choosing too early a restore point. It is not likely you had the Win HDD virus without noticing it for more than this amount of time.
9) Wait while your computer restores. This may take several minutes. Once your computer starts up, a dialog box will tell you the system restore has completed. You will now be able to use Windows 7 as if it were never infected with the Win HDD virus.
