How to Remove Conficker Virus

One of the symptoms that you are infected with that Conficker virus is that you can not access security websites like Mcaffee, Systemantec, Comodo, and AVG.

So how do you remove this virus when you can't access anti virus websites?

Solution:
1. Go to the Command Prompt. You can do this by clicking on Start > Run
2. Type in cmd then click the ok button
3. In the command window type in ipconfig /flushdns This will clear cached dns records
4. Or you can stop the dns cache service by typing net stop dnscache
5. Download the Conficker remover from this site http://www.symantec.com/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2009-011316-0247-99
6. Disconnect from the internet and run the virus remover.
7. If it did not seem to remove anything, run your PC in safe mode then run the virus remover again.
8. When the program is finished it should give you a report of the processes that where stopped, the files that were clean, and the registry entries that were corrected.

If the virus is preventing you from downloading the virus remover even after you stopped the dnscache service, you will need to download it from another PC that has not been infected. Maybe you can download from another PC in your office or from an internet cafe.

I have a one step alternative for that:

1. Install Linux.
