    First of all, you have to install the malicious software removal tool from the official website of Microsoft. If you are using a registered operating system, you will be able to easily install the software without any trouble. On the other hand, if your Windows is not registered, you will not be able to install the software as it will not validate your operating system. In this scenario, you can either get your Windows registered first or you can simply install any other antivirus software. There are many different types of antivirus software (Avira, AVG, F-secure, Norton, McAfee and Kaspersky etc) which are available for free on the internet.
