Windows Defender is a free antivirus program that is pre-installed on Windows 10 to protect your computer from virus attacks, rootkits, spyware, and other malicious code.

A virus and malware can infect your personal computer in many ways such as: via USB, e-mail, visiting malicious websites, and the most common one, pirated software.

To remove viruses on your Windows computer using Windows Defender do the following:
Note: This method your computer will reboot and go into Windows Defender Offline mode, but the scan time will be greatly reduced and the detection rate of viruses and malware will improve.

Step 1: Start the Windows Defender Security Center on the Start menu.

Step 2: Click on Virus & threat protection and select Advanced scan in the interface.

Step 3: You mark the stick on Windows Defender Offline scan.

Step 4: Click Scan Now to start the virus scan.

This is an example image of how your screen should look like when it is running an offline scan.

Now you have gotten rid of viruses and other malicious software that were running on your computer!

I hope the guide is clear and you have done it successfully! :)
