In some certain instances, viruses can block the running of different anti-malware. In this situation, you need to utilize the removable drive with a pre-installed antivirus tool.

Malicious apps become more and more complex day-to-day. Modern trojans are able to carry all possible types of malware – spyware, keylogger, ransomware, backdoor, et cetera – becoming extremely harmful when it comes to action. They can disable not only Microsoft Defender (such an action is usual for trojans since 2015), but also installation files of the majority of popular antivirus programs. In such cases it is likely impossible to solve the problem in other ways than following the instructions sent by cybercriminals. Or is there another variant?

There is a really little number of security tools that are able to be set up on the USB drives, and antiviruses that can do so in most cases require to obtain quite an expensive license. For this instance, I can recommend you to use – Trojan Killer Portable. It has a 14-days cost-free trial mode that offers the entire features of the paid version. This term will definitely be 100% enough to wipe any virus out.

Nonetheless, to stay clear of the installation prevention, you need to complete this process on the other PC. Ask your relative, or lend your son’s laptop – whichever, the principal criteria is USB-port presence.

  1. After downloading the installation file of Trojan Killer, double-click it. In the shown up window, go for “Setup to removable drive”, and specify the removable drive you are going to use.

  9. After the PC is restarted, choose Troubleshoot > Advanced Options > Startup Settings > Restart. PC will be restarted once again, and you will see the list of options. Choose the 4th option.
