Cut them off as immediately!!
Next, get and extra external hard drive from a computer store.
This is to back up your entire PC before the virus can do any more damage.
They are very inexpensive and it is recommended
If you are already diligent in making backups, you do not
want to plug in your existing back up drive into the infected PC (use a different one)
The second thing you need to ask yourself is whether or not the website that you visited today was a quality website.
Chances are that if you honestly feel that it was and this is how you got the virus on your computer.
If it is, then I recommend somehow (maybe from another computer) that you contact the webmaster of the website immediately.
Do not wait for months to go by because others may get affected.
It is very possible that the webmaster didn't even know if virus code was added to the webpage since all websites are usually are hosted by a 3rd party web hosting company.
If the website was a shady website then I obviously recommend staying away from it all together.
Illegal download sites are one example of an easy way of getting a virus.
If you use moral judgment you can probably make that determination pretty easily.
A lot of times websites will prompt you to download and run something that seems legit and once you do this, you now have a virus and you computer is now corrupted.
One way that viruses disguise them self is that they may make you believe that it is part of a website when in reality it has nothing to do with someone's website.
This is an easy way for a virus to misdirect the computer user.
I would also highly recommend getting an anti-virus program to protect your PC.
I recommend Avast anti-virus software. It is a very low resource anti-virus software that is also free to use.
Avast has the ability to scan the website and report whether they feel it is legit and virus free before displaying it in the web browser.
You can visit their website here
However, standard anti-virus software like Avast, McAfee or Norton may not always be able to catch a virus. If you feel that you have a virus and want to test a particular file to see if it is infected, then please visit this website: virustotal.com
. It will run the file through over 40 different anti-virus programs and will report to you whether or not the file contains a virus.
