That really depends on the nature of the virus and if it's something that there are known solutions for remediation.

Are there  any free apps that can be used to defend against them on computer?

There are lots of free AV suites; MS Defender from Microsoft; AVAST is good...look here:

You can't beat paid for though as this will give you full coverage, support and have full options for recovery without getting diverted to a paywall for removal.

 

Before installing on an infected machine you would be well advised to pop over to our 'Have I Been Hijacked' forum and get a full scan done by one of the trusted Malware Techs.

A few things:

  • A good clean recovery back up incase the worst happens
  • As discussed a good AV suite
  • Browser Ad-blockers and other tools like 'Noscript' that block java scripts from running
  • Don't open unsolicited emails claiming to be refunds from Amazon etc

And probably a lot more besides!!

 

Even the best AV protection in the world can't protect against stupid humans!!

I can't understand it unless you don't use your computer.What I understand by "keep your computer safe" is to prevent certain viruses or other program.

Backup all the data for your computer and add a password to an important folder and account,as for how to unlock password,you can click it:

Or download Windows explorer to manage all the files on computer:https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/internet-explorer-11-for-windows-7-details.aspx

I removed your link that shows and has software to bypass windows passwords. Per the rules we all agree to when we signup here on the forums, we don't allow such software to be posted. Thanks for understanding.
