Definition Edit

In many cases, once a virus has been detected it is found on numerous systems or in numerous executables on a single system. Recovery from original diskettes or clean backups can be a tedious process. Removal tools attempt to efficiently restore the system to its uninfected state by removing the virus code from the infected executable.[1]
