Here some tips using batch line.

If the virus is running in your computer find the virus name first.
If you found it

type in the command line

taskkill /IM virusname.exe /F the IM and F should be capitalize.

This command will kill or stop the virus from running in your computer.

The next thing you do is to delete all virus but first you must find the path where the virus is located.

If you found it go to the virus path using cd command. For example the virus is in system32

you must type this "cd windows\system32"

then the prompt will be in system32 and it will look like this c:\windows\system32>_

then type attrib -r -h -s virusname.exe

this command will make the virus visible.

so type then erase or del virusname.exe

Thats it...

Ya formula won't help in case of of a virus the has a loop in its' attribute formula.
commands to delete virus tell me command
First find out the name of the virus, and the exact location of the virus. reboot in to safe mode with command prompt, and remove the attributes of that fine and delete it.

for example : if virus name is abcd.exe and its located in c:\windows\system32\abcd.exe
then in command prompt navigate to system32 and to check the presence of virus use command "dir/ah" this will view the hidden files, and remove the virus attributes
Ex: c:\windows\system32> attrib -s -h -r abcd.exe

c:\windows\system32> del abcd.exe

finally delete the virus itself from the drive.

next step is find out of abcd.exe is present in Startup, and in registry, this will make sure that the virus would not startup again during reboot.

Once all these are done, reboot your pc and your problem will be solved.

Ask a question
You can find virus files from command prompt.

C:\dir/a (here all file in c drive will be listed you can find unknow files and can delet by using command
Erase /ashr (FILENAME). Try to fix like this for all drives.
to delete the virus from a drive ...its possible but some of them may spread again to another and then to the same one .

If the code above didnt work(BY SOMEONE) Mayby the virus you have is not an autorun one and maybe a simple .bat virus set to restart each time you log on to your computer,if so this will be located in all C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
So any user logging on will have the virus .bat load load up with them, the .bat may run the make you restart or logoff

You still have a few options try opening the folder and looking for a .bat file and find its name
%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup"

See if any .bat files exist there? if you dont see it it may have the /h attribute so in your code you will need to make them visible so you can find the name of the virus .in or .bat, if you manage to find the name of the virus then just switch the "variable name" below to whatever the virus name is...
if so try this code as above using the .bat extention instead.

@echo off
if exist "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\"Variablename.bat" goto inf
attrib autorun.inf -s -h -r -a
del "variablename.bat" (change to the virus name)
msg * autorun.bat Deleted

good luck
