As long as you've got decent Anti-Virus software such as ZoneAlarm Anti-Virus, AVG, Kaspersky, or AVIRA (to name a few) they should detect it in a scan and allow you to treat it when done.

To do it manually..........

  1. Delete Infected Files

    • 1

      Click on the "Start" menu.

    • 2

      Click on the "Search Files and Programs" box, then type "Desktop.ini."

    • 3

      Right-click on the file that appears in the results list, then click "Delete."

    End Infected Processes

    • 4

      Press "Ctrl + Alt + Delete."

    • 5

      Click on the "Task Manager."

    • 6

      Click on the "Processes" tab.

    • 7

      Right-click on "Desktop.ini," and click "End Process."

Desktop.ini Virus is a special type of computer virus whilch destroys your all important files and data from your computer, if you do not take a quick action for it you may loose your several files too. Every computer has not the capability to remove this virus but it is possible by a specific anti-virus. We know that a computer virus is such a progam which spreads very quickly from one to another computer. You are directed that click on the ‘Start ‘menu and then click on the “ search files and programs’ box and type ‘Desktop.ini’. It will detect all the virus and now do the right-click on the option Del.
