"Right. If you keep him talking, I'll go on his computer and get rid of it."
Get rid of – got rid of – got rid of
get rid of
something, you dispose of or destroy something that you do not want, often because it is causing problems for you.
This phrasal verb needs an object. It is not possible to put the object between the verb and particles: the object must go after the verb and particles.
She got rid of the insects
She got rid of them
She got the insects rid of - NOT CORRECT
She got rid the insects of - NOT CORRECT
She got them rid of - NOT CORRECT
She got rid them of - NOT CORRECT
I took antibiotics to get rid of my infection.
get shot of, dispose of, chuck out, throw out, dump
