I've noticed that there are frequent inquiries from ClamWin users as to how to clean up viruses since ClamWin doesn't have this capability. I visited an IT-related Web site recently that had a script for virus/worm cleanup. The script comes with an explanation. I will link to the site below in case some of the ClamWin team is interested in putting this in a "cleanup" library or in keepin the code for use in a future version of ClamWin that does some cleanup.

The link: http://searchwindowssecurity.techtarget.com/tip/1,289483,sid45_gci998093,00.html?ses=1050185

If you can identify an infection, there will be some information on the web as to how you can clean it. If you do not want to bother with research, I suggest you use a couple of the free cleaning programs below. Tthey do not need any installation. Keep them on a USB and run them from there. Some people also like Malwarebytes, but Microsft Safety Cleaner and ESET Online Scanner are just as good.

Microsoft Safety Cleaner - (MSERT) Good for everyday common malware. Download a new version every week.
ESET Online Scanner - Good for hard-to detect malware. Takes a long time to run but it is worth it.
Kaspersky TDSS Cleaner - Rootkit cleaner. Detects the most common/dangerous rootkits. Does not detect all rootkits.
Dr. Web CureIT - This will find just about any malware, but there is a new version every day or so. It's too much trouble--get it only as a last resort.

Regards.

How will I be able to clean up the junk files in my device which is causing the ipod touch problems and not letting me use the device properly? The guidelines from https://applesupportnumber.net/blog/ipod-touch-5th-generation-issues/ helped in solving some of the issues. What about the rest.
