    Are there programs that can identify what virus you have definently?

    My desktop computer has several viruses on it but I need to know what program that I can get that will tell me what viruses that need to be removed?
    Computers are a form of creating through imagination.

    You mean something other than an antivirus application??? Only antivirus apps would have the virus signatures to tell if a file is infected or not.

    Are you sure it's not malware?

    Avast and Malwarebytes would be a start.

    This is the latest Free Microsoft Bootable AV/Malware Sweeper.

    Bootable AVs are better then the one that run for inside Windowes because there is No processes running.

    Yes even i do agree with you.You cannot find out the virus infected datas of your system without an antivirus application installed in your system.
