Great Tips to Make removing Smart Fortress 2012 Easier

You may be able to yse System Restore and full remove Smart Fortress 2012 in a matter of minutes. It's a lot like a time machine and you can send your PC back to when the virus was not installed. After the restore you need to run a full AV scan to make sure you are no longer infected.

If you are going to manually remove this virus you have to first stop the program from running. Once you stop a single .exe file on the system the program will most likely stop running and you can then delete the rest of the virus traces and take back your computer. While this sounds hard, it's really rather simple.

This virus hides in the C:ProgramData\ folder. Now your task is to sort the files by date. Show the most current insalled files first. Then compare the file dates to when you got infected. Chances are there are only 1-4 files and folders around the date you were infected. The file in question will not make any sense at all and be a jumble of letters and numbers. This will be the file you need to stop from running. Open the folder and re-name the files in it. The virus will now no longer load and upon re-boot should not be active.
