How to remove Autorun.inf


Here are some typical malware which can install autorun.inf.exe file to your computer and give your computer a critical strike.
Autorun.inf virus contains three execute files which are kavo.exe, ntdelect.com and autorun.inf. All of them are hidden files. You cannot find the by showing hidden files. The only way to find them is to use DOS command.

Not all user have computer savvy. I was suffered from this virus a lot. Success got rid of it using RegTool and want to share it with you.

To remove Autorun.inf

Tools you need RegTool and AVG anti-virus.

Also here is an easy way to remove Autorun.inf manually!

click Start>Run>enter “CMD” them you will see and command window. In the command prompt, you can search for any exe.files. First we can disable “read only” and “hidden” attributes.
Enter the word in prompt.
Check C drive: key in dir c:\/a/w
2 then
attrib -s -h -r c:\autorun.inf
attrib -s -h -r c:\ ntdelect.com
You can use the same way to disable attributes of other drive such like D, E, etc.
3 OK, everything is done, we can now remove these two files.
For C drive, you can enter
del c:\autorun.inf
del c:\ntdelect.com

The same to D drive
How about kavo.exe? You need to repeat step1 and step 2 to disable attributes.
The delete command is different with them.
attrib -s -h -r c:\windows\system32\kavo.exe
del c:\windows\system32\kavo.exe

last thing you should do:
Open registry editor by entering Regedit.
Go to HKEY_LOCAL-MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
Remove Kavo value.

Pls advise if the following processes running in my Task Manager are viruses or genuine system processes - ccSvcHst.exe; lsass.exe; explorer.exe, winlogon.exe; svchost.exe; wuauclt.exe; jqs.exe;...


ccSvcHst.exe - works to display the GUI (Graphical User Interface) of Norton products, which usually include the Norton Security Suites.
lsass.exe - Disable and remove lsass.exe Immediately. This process is most likely a virus or trojan.

Other processes are required for essential applications to work properly.

You can visit this liutilities.com and search for the process your not familiar with.

Victim of software counterfeiting


Hi,

After installing your genuine copy of Microsoft Windows XP you are prompted with a “Your software is counterfeit” error message at startup. Even after visiting the www.microsoft.com/genuine/ site and validating, you still get the above message popping up after 2 or 3 boots. There is an easy solution to this and I would like you to follow the steps below to fix the issue.

1. C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files
  • Within that folder, remove any files or folders associated with .WGA
2. Safe Mode
  • Reboot your computer and as soon as Windows logs off, start repeatively tapping the F8 Key on your keyboard.
  • As soon as you see the Windows Advanced Startup options select Safe Mode within Safe Mode get yourself into these folders…
  • C:\Windows\System32 (Rename wgatray.exe to wgatrayold.exe)
  • C:\Windows\System32\dllcache (Rename wgatray.exe to wgatrayold.exe)
    Note: Dllcache is a hidden folder, to view hidden folders do the following, go to Start, Control Panel, Folder Options,
    Select the view Tab and under the Hidden Files option, select Show hidden files and folders
3. Safe Mode Registry
  • Click on Start, Run and within the open dialog box type regedit and click OK.
  • Within the Registry Editor navigate your self to
    HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify\WGALOGON
  • Right Click and Export the WGALOGON Folder (this should be saved onto your machine for backup purposes)
  • After Exporting the folder, DELETE the WGALOGON folder
  • After deleting close all applications and Restart your machine back to Normal Mode
After being prompt of a successful validation, Restart your Machine.

Not able to open regedit!


Hi, you do have a virus and or trojan.

Please download Malwarebytes anti-malware from http://www.malwarebytes.org When you download choose save to disk and rename the file to anything you like, The reason for the rename is many newer trojans can identify malware removal tools and prevent them from working as well as disabling you regedit and task manager.
Let anti-malware install and update and perform a quick scan.
When its finished have it remove what it can. If it asks to reboot do so.
When you have restarted your computer download Avast anti-virus
from avast.com again renaming the exe when saving to disk.
After install it will ask if you wish to schedule a boot time scan select yes. Then it will tell you to restart your system, choose restart later. Open avast from the start menu and select settings. Go to updating and update the virus signatures. Restart your computer when the update is complete.
You have to watch the screen as avast will alert you and ask for your preferred action on what it finds.

When completed your computer will boot normally into Windows run both scanners again in the same order.

Good luck
