    As you might notice, in the full article title, Microsoft also says to "Re-install Windows", which was Microsoft's original recommendation.
    Reading the full article, you will note that, nowhere, does it say you have to re-install Windows, although sometimes that may not be a bad idea, certainly short and sweet and 100% effective on ridding malware/viruses.
    The article fully explains how to rid this malware or you can use a Linux Live CD, after manually deleting the virus files that hide in the users AppData folders.
