You can search the Internet using (for example), for Dfica.a.
Check the listed anti-virus vendors for removal methods.

The only complete method to remove a virus is to reformat and reinstall the
operating system.

Virus can get on your system by:
1. weak passwords. You should use a pass phrase. A pass phrase contains
upper and lowercase characters, spaces and special characters. example is
"I like to have fun#9"

Trying to remove the virus is fine but unless you secure the machine, you
can get reinfected.
