Ok, I see what happened. You didn't pay attention to what you were doing. Here's step 2 of the installer. Study everything in red VERY carefully:
On here, you should have clicked "Decline", but you clicked "Accept". Big mistake.
Here's what happens when you click "Decline"
That's right, you get yet ANOTHER "special offer" that you have to decline! Study this one very carefully and you'll see what it's offering! Yep! More garbage! Clicking "Accept" would be big mistake again.
So, after clicking Decline, guess what: you get ANOTHER so-called "special offer"! Sigh. How annoying!
So, you click "Decline" again and guess what happens! Yep! ANOTHER ONE!
Click "Decline" on this one and you FINALLY get to install CPU-Z. Finally.

So.... OMG! Wth CNET? Seriously? I'M NEVER TRUSTING CNET AGAIN.
Anyway, orndorf77: you need to start paying attention to what you're doing, especially when installing any software at all. I don't care where it came from!

Your question: will it work? I don't know... it might it lmight not, depending on the type of how the virus works...
Just install Malwarebytes and Hitman Pro and do a scan... --> both are free to use (Hitman Pro might have to be activated to clean the virus, but it comes with a 1-time 30 day trial version key you have to activat in the program)
And how about your own Antivirus/Firewall software? You do use that I guess?
No, CPU-Z is from www.cpuid.com.
