Csrcs.exe removal


Steps to remove this virus:

1. Scan the system with a good and updated Anti Virus.

2. Open Task Manager, locate this exe (csrcs.exe or csrsc.exe but not csrss.exe), and kill the process.

3. Now type msconfig in the Run box, and then go to startup tab.

4. Locate this exe file, if any, and then remove it from there as well.

5. Now search the file in the C: drive.

6. Permanently delete the file (csrcs.exe or csrsc.exe only) from the computer.

7. Reboot the PC for changes to take place.

After doing the above steps, you need to clean the registry as well.

  1. Navigate toHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\
  2. On the right side, there is a key named "Shell", it may be having a value "explorer.exe csrcs.exe". Just modify it to delete the csrcs.exe from it (not explorer.exe). Restart the computer

My mp3 & video files always converted into jpg files


I too had the same prob... But got rid of it with the help of help 2 design site.. Go through this..
A new malware virus MediaControl.exe found in some parts of central asia late this month.
It changes the extension of all the media files like AVI (.avi), Music (mp3, …) to .jpg.
This just canges the file extension. Not the file format.
To play the media file, you need to re-change the file extension to the previous type, or open the file using the media player.
Malware name is MediaControl.exe.
It internally creates a folder by name ”mcont” in AppData of OS drive. AutoRun inside mcont also puts the MediaControl.exe to the winwos start up of msconfig.
How To Remove MediaControl.exe?:
1. Kill the process MediaControl.exe is running.
How?:

Press Ctrl + Shift + Esc to open the windows taskmanager.
Click on the Processes tab
Search the MediaControl.exe, Click on End Process button at Bottom right.
2. Remove MediaControl link from Windows Start up

Once you remove the mallware, your computer is free of mallware but, you are left with thousands of your media files changed its exentsion to .jpg. It is not an easy job to change the file extension one by one. You can use an Auto-Renamer programs.
We recomond you the AndRenamer program. You can download it here: [ftp://ftp2.antp.be/antp/software/antrenamer2_install.exe]

then click the startup tab. here you have to find that antivirus application name or related name.

(for example: xxx.exe, xyz)

if you find that exactly, then uncheck the box of that application name. give apply and ok.

you need to restart the computer now, if u have no problem to restart now means, you can do that or after some time.

after restarting the computer, the microsoft configuration application comes automatically in the desktop.

now you have to check the box in the front of ms configuration and give ok.

hereafter, it wont starts.

thank you.
