My granddaughter brought some of her school work home on a flash drive and it had a virus in it. Well it got in my HP desktop computer and messed things up and AVG did not help. So I had the idea to just let the HP do what it calls a destructive reload of the os. When everything was finished with the newly installed os I used IE to go to major geeks for the AVG free and Malwarebytes so things would get started off on the right foot. Well guess what ??? After the new os reload IE would not let me go to major geeks and redirected itself to another website. I finally got avg and malwarebytes installed by going to Google websight and installing Chrome and then getting AVG and Malwarebytes before it could take over Chrome. How do I clear a virus from a flash drive ? How did that virus survive the os destructive reload and what should I do next ? Thanks in advance , Dyno Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
