How to Fix a Virus From Hotmail

Using web mail such as Hotmail is convenient and easy, but often Internet emails can come with viruses that can infect and wreak havoc on your computer systems. Once your computer is infected, the virus will send copies of itself to all your online contacts, exposing them to potential infection as well. The virus usually comes in the form of an email that looks as though it is from a friend and asks you to download a photo. Once the file is downloaded and run, the virus infects your computer system. You should fix these viruses immediately to prevent harm to your computer.

Follow the steps to fix the issue:-

1) Click the "Start" button in the lower left hand corner of your screen, then choose "Control Panel" from the right side of the pop-up menu. Click on "Add/Remove Programs."

2) Find "Toolbar888" in the list of programs and click the "Change/Uninstall" button to uninstall it.

3) Press "CTRL" + "ALT" + "DELETE" during the program uninstallation and click on the "Processes" tab when the task bar comes up. Highlight and click "End Process" if you find any of the following file names in the Processes list:







4) Download a free antivirus program such as AVG or Avast! (see Resources) and run a full scan of your computer to detect any other threats
