Your System32 files are the most important ones you have. You need to get your Windows disk and boot from it. then you need to hit repair and the files will be replaced.

When i start my windows a dialog box named WINDOWS HOST SCRIPT APPEARS and says some message about rahul's virus protection


Hi karthicku683,

Your computer is infected with viruses. Please use a good anti-virus software to keep your system clean.

1) Right click on the taskbar and click 'Task Manager'.

2) In the 'Process' tab find wscript.exe.

3) Right click on it and select 'End Process Tree'

4)
Go to Folder Options and check show hidden files and click OK.

5) Delete 'VirusRemoval.vbs' and 'Autorun.inf files' from all usb drives and hard drives.

6) Then go to C:\Windows\System32 and delete the file 'VirusRemoval.vbs'.

7) Next go to START>RUN and type regedit and Enter.

8) Go to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

9) On the right side look for Shell which should have value of just explorer.exe. Delete anything at right side of explorer.exe if there is anything.

10) Under same key Winlogon also look for Userinit which should have value of C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe.

11) Delete all the **** after the comma.

12) Go to HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
On the right side locate Window Title and delete its value i.e. Sujin.com.np

Hope this solves your problem. If this information was helpful, please rate this solution.

Thank you for using fixya.

I assume you have Windows XP as your OS.Take back up of all your important data and get the windows restored to an earlier date(just click start, the Run then paste there %SYSTEMROOT%\System32\restore\rstrui.exe
and click OK.). If it does not help you proceed for a fresh windows installation

Hi Umesh,

Firstly i'll give u a command which might help u sort out the issue.

1. Open up start menu and click run and type "regsvr32 C:\windows\system32\zipfldr.dll /u" and click ok. ( I did this because sometimes your pc will be saying ur cpu usage is 100% and your harddisk space will be shown as full, typing that command will fix that)

2 . If the first step didnt help you. Insert your windows Xp cd and reboot. boot with the cd and then go to your recovery console and type "expand d:\i386\regsvr32.ex_ c:\windows\system32\regsvr32.exe


Follow those 2 steps and let me know if that doesnt help. I'll be happy to help you out.
