Important: According to DCWG, you should not need to scan, make changes or download anything to tell whether your computer is infected.
My Computer Is Infected. Now What?
The good news is DCWG has put together a page of trusted tools and a step-by-step guide for how to fix your computer.
The bad news is it can take a day or two actually to fix the problem, Greene told ABCNews.com. That's because the malware is in a deep section of the hard drive called the "boot sector."
"The malware problem out there is nasty, and it's impacted society on multiple levels," Greene said. "It's extremely hard to get rid of. In most companies, if they get infected with it, they throw away the hard drive."
If you can't do that, follow the instructions. They include backing up your files and reinstalling your operating system.
