[SOLVED] Delete files in Win7

Post by Peter Linu » Tue Dec 03, 2019 8:06 am

I need to delete files on Win7 that I suspect are malware. Search shows several programs that do it. Is there any recommendation?

you could boot in Safe Mode & then UN-install them.
- done that before.

if it's just some isolated program, that is in it's own directory - - you can delete from the Linux side, as well.

do run an on-line scanner as well:

that will take some hours, to complete.

Thank you all.
Accessed Win7 file from Mint and deleted without issue.
Thank you Mint for being logical and uncomplicated.
