Oops! Downloaded a virus (win32-DOS)!

I'm on Windows 7 and accidentally downloaded a virus. It's not that bad, but it gives alerts that Windows has crashed. Nothing still happens.

"Well, try using an antimalware program might get rid of it. Try the free version of Malwarebytes, for instance.

You also might be able to delete the Win32-DOS folder from within Windows or from a Linux LiveCD (Puppy Linux is small), but if it was me I'd want to scan around with an antimalware program and make pretty sure that it was all gone even if I tried to get rid of it that way."

"Try booting into safe mode (Make sure to select the ""Administrator"" account, not your own - I believe it should be visible in safe mode), navigate there, and hit the delete key ;)
You may also want to run some sort of antivirus while you're there."
