I am sure you have heard of the BT Virus Protect before. It is a virus protection software that has been around for years, and it was pretty popular back in the day. I know because my parents used to use it when I was young. Anyway, there are some things that many people don’t realize about this software, like how they can remove their device from its list of protected devices.

How do I remove BT virus protect?

One of the best ways to get rid of BT virus protect is to find a legitimate anti-virus program, install it and scan your computer for viruses.
There are three major things that can be done to help get rid of the virus. First, you have to remove any files pertaining to the virus from your system. The easiest way is just delete all folders and files associated with BT software protector off the computer or on an external device so nothing will re-install it again. Next go into Control Panel>Application>Programs and Features>Uninstall programs search for anything related in even part with this kind of app or security program; delete any entries that come up on screen that seem questionable such as those sounding like they.

If you are not subscribed to BT virus protect for your internet security and no longer wish to use this product, please delete it from your computer. To do this:

1. Click Start> Control Panel> Add/Remove Programs then select BT Virus Protect 2006 and click remove, or highlight the program and hit the ‘delete’ key on your keyboard (to help find uninstall information for any other software that is installed with BT virus protect, we recommend typing “uninstall” into ‘search programs & files).

2. Once the program has been removed, restart your computer in order to complete the process.

3. If after rebooting you find that another version of the software has started up again follow steps 1 – 2 above.

If you are currently using BT virus protect and just want to switch off the protection follow these steps:

1. Click Start> Control Panel then select ‘Security Center’.

2. Click on the ‘Firewall’ tab, and then click ‘Turn firewall off’. Uncheck the box next to “Automatically detect settings” if it is ticked and click OK.

3. Restart your computer in order for changes take effect. Allowing internet access without being protected is not recommended so we recommend restarting into safe mode (see below). If infected files are still present after rebooting they can be removed with an anti-virus program.

If you have tried the above but your computer still will not boot into Windows, enter safe mode. From a cold start press F8 repeatedly on startup, to get to the Advanced Boot Options menu (note that doing this may stop some printers and other devices from working). Then select “Safe Mode” using either the up/down keys or by highlighting it with the cursor keys then pressing Enter.

To protect against this, in safe mode use the up/down cursor keys to highlight “safe mode with network support” and press enter. You can also try ‘disable automatic restart on system failure’ if your machine hangs.

If you still have access to other computers you may be able to scan a disc image of your infected hard drive using BitDefender’s online scanner at http://www.bitdefender.com/scanner/#standalone (download their free utility first if you don’t already have it installed). If not see our advice about computer crime here for details about how to delete files safely when using Windows Advanced Boot Options;

Usually there will be a set of options that allow you to specify which programs to start with Windows, and which driver files should be loaded. In safe mode, the above steps show how to get into safe mode with network support (which is more likely to work than trying it in command prompt)

Once you have done this follow these steps:

1) Click Start, then click Run. The “Run” box will open. Type the following commands and press Enter after each one:

%systemroot%\system32 (This takes you into the system directory.)

del *.* /s/q (This deletes all files and subdirectories in every folder on your hard drive.)

2) Reboot your machine.

3) When Windows starts, you will be asked to insert the original disk that came with your computer. Do this and format your hard drive (do not use quick format). To avoid losing important files, we recommend copying them to another directory on a different drive before you start formatting.

Note: Norton Antivirus allows you to scan an image of your hard disk before it is formatted, in case you want to be 100% sure all traces of the trojan are removed.

How do I remove a trojan under Windows 95/98/ME?

Many trojans that target these operating systems simply crash them, rebooting the computer as they do so. You should then end up at a rescue prompt; from here press F5 or F8 (the former will offer more options) and type “fixmbr” followed by Enter. After this has completed, restart the computer normally. If fixmbr doesn’t solve your problem, repeat until it does – unfortunately some older versions of Win95 won’t recognise this command and will keep repeating the same error message with each restart.

In certain cases you may find that none of these solutions work. If that happens, insert your Windows CD and boot from it. Then follow the instructions in the section: How do I remove a trojan under Windows 98/ME? (reproduced below)

Warning! Before removing any files from your hard drive, make sure you’ve successfully booted from an uninfected floppy disk or CD-ROM or another operational hard drive; otherwise you can corrupt both your primary drive and your backup. Make sure as well that nobody is likely to turn off any time soon the power supply or the main switch to your PC.

We highly recommend having a recent backup of your hard drive, or at least all critical files such as work documents, spreadsheets, presentations, databases etc (important email messages should be backed up separately). It is also recommended that you make sure you have installed AntiVirus software before performing this procedure. You can back up by copying files from your hard disk to another computer on the network (which is off), or to a floppy, Zip drive or CD-R. Or use Norton Ghost (or similar) to create an image of the C:\ directory on your hard disk and store it for later retrieval.
