Fuvirus!!!!! help me provide me with the simplest solution pls.


Since FUvirus is visible in the processes tab of the Task Manager, this can be deleted or disabled manually.

First of, open the Task Manager by right-clicking the TaskBar, click "Processes" tab on the task manager and locate "FUvirus.exe" from the processes lists. Make sure that "Show all Processes from all users" is selected. Once FUvirus.exe is located, right-click and then "End Process Tree" and close the Task Manager.

Now delete the FUvirus from the Registry, follow the instructions:
Open the Windows Registry Editor by clicking on the Windows "Start" button and selecting "Run." Type "regedit" into the box and click "OK." Once the Registry Editor is open, search for the registry key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\FUvirus.exe." Right-click this registry key and select "Delete".

You also need to search the similar file on your computer, this generally happens, this virus replicates and creates several similar files with the similar name randomnly. Search for "FUvirus.exe" and delete whatever you find with that name. Once you are done, restart your computer and check whether it's gone or not. I would also recommend you to run full virus scan, there are several free antivirus which could easily detect and repair FUvirus like, Avira free, Avg free, Avast free, etc... you can download them from their respective websites.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Note: Don't ever install Multiple Antivirus on a system, this may cause system instability or even system failure.

Just a minor problem but it bugs me.. There is this file called karlewsa.exe. I don't know what it is or what it can do. What I know is that it is detected as a virus by prevx. I tried manually deleting it...


Your problem cannot be classified as 'minor': you have probably been infected by a nasty virus.
In order to do this 'manual' delete of karlewsa.exe or nay program that is 'used by another process', you need to:

  • start 'Task manager' (access via keys ctl-alt-del)
  • go to the 'Processes' tab
  • locate the required running process like karlewsa.exe and anything that is related and click on 'End process'
  • locate the directory that has this program and delete the whole directory (you might be required to kill/end additional processes from that directory...)
  • run your up to date Antivirus/Antispyware programs
  • recheck that karlewsa has not regenerated itself again!
Hope the information is helpful and good luck!

ps. The best way to kill any virus is to boot up from a CD containing an up to date antivirus/antispyware utility that has been created on a clean PC.

UST funny scandal virus


Ideally, you need an antivirus product that can be run"live" from a CD. You can then boot the CD and run the anti-virus scan on the hard disc.

You may need to do some manual tasks to remove it completely - delete files, delete registry entries etc.

There are some useful instructions here

1. Start Notepad
2. Copy the following text. (note: Everything in between the square brackets should be in one line)

REGEDIT4
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\IniFileMapping\Autorun.inf]
@="@SYS:DoesNotExist"



3. Save the file with a name (anything) like DisableAutoRun.reg (The extension .reg is the important part)
4. Double Click your newly created registry file. Choose yes or continue to the warning that will appear.


But what if you are already infected with the virus? There are several programs on the internet that you can download. Here are some of those programs that can be helpful:
