Automatic removal tool

The automatic removal way has only one flaw - it is paid. If you don't want to pay for antiviral software, you can try to remove all viruses manually, and maybe, you will succeed, and maybe - you will not. The anti-viral program doesn't have such complications, because it was created to destroy viruses and unwanted programs. It has no problems with removing of dozens of viruses at once, it won't miss anything during the removal, and will accurately clear all needed folders and registry items. The most important difference between manual and automatic way of deletion is the protection. When you remove the virus manually - it's the one-time measure, but the installation of antivirus will protect your PC for a long time.
