PCs Infected with Malware?

Every day, adversaries attempt to invade your networks and infect your systems with viruses, spyware, and other malware. In other cases, employees can open the door to malware by visiting infected Web sites, opening the wrong e-mail attachments, or running macros that contain viruses.

As an IT professional focused on security, you know the risks first hand. You've installed antivirus software and you keep your protection updated. Sometimes, though, attacks are successful, and computers get infected. And once they are inside the organization, malware outbreaks can spread with alarming speed, compromising or destroying mission-critical data or personal information.

Restore Infected PCs with the Malware Removal Starter Kit!

And once malware is located and identified, it can be quickly removed from infected PCs with a number of free anti-malware tools , like the Malicious Software Removal Tool from Microsoft.

The Malware Removal Starter Kit answers questions like:
