How to remove the scvhost.exe Virus.


Svchost.exe is the name of a generic host process for services that run from dynamic link libraries (DLLs). A variety of worm malware programs spread a similarly named file <b>Scvhost.exe </b>via Yahoo! Messenger that blocks the Task Manager and Registry Editor, as well as use of the command prompt.<br /> <br /> <b><u>Warning</u></b><br /> Manual removal of Scvhost.exe may be very difficult as the removal process requires knowledge of the Operating System's command prompt and Registry Editor. If not performed properly, your computer system might experience permanent damage. Consequently, manual removal might be best for experienced users. Less experienced users might want to consider using an automatic spyware removal application, such as that offered by Trend Micro. This worm duplicates itself to different locations of shared folders. The duplicated program uses a folder icon that has an .exe file extension. DO NOT double click on any of these folders.<br /> <br /> <b><u>Follow these step by step instructions to remove the scvhost.exe virus.</u></b><br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Step 1 (Turning off System Restore)</u></b><br /> This is so that if you ever need to use System Restore after you have removed the virus, it doesn't restore the virus aswell.<br /> <br /> If the operating system of the infected computer is either Windows Me or Windows XP, turn off System Restore while this fix is being implemented. To turn off System Restore within Windows Me, click <b>Start &gt; Settings &gt; Control Panel</b>. Double-click <b>System</b>. Select F<b>ile System</b> from the Performance tab. Left click the <b>Troubleshooting</b> tab and check the <b>Disable System Restore</b> box. Click <b>OK</b>. <br />To turn off System Restore within Windows XP, log in as Administrator and click <b>Start</b>. Right click <b>My Computer</b>" and select <b>Properties</b> from the shortcut menu. Check the <b>Turn off System Restore</b> option for each drive on the System Restore tab. Left click <b>Apply</b> and <b>Yes</b> to confirm when prompted. Click <b>OK</b>.<br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Step 2 (Run in safe mode)</u></b><br /> Restart your computer in Safe Mode and log in as Administrator. Press <b>F8</b> after the first beep occurs during start up, before the display of the Microsoft Windows logo. Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode from the selection menu.<br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Step 3 (Accessing Command prompt)</u></b><br /> Access the command prompt. Click <b>Start &gt; Run</b>. Type <b>cmd</b>. Click <b>OK</b>. Then in the command prompt type <b>cd </b>to<b> </b>change directory then press the space bar. <br />Type the name of the full directory path of the folder containing your Windows system files. It will be either <b>C:\Windows\System </b>or<b> C:\Windows\System 32</b><br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Step 4</u></b><br /> From the command prompt, type the following to unprotect the files for removal:<br /><b>attrib -h -r -s scvhost.exe</b> and press <b>Enter</b>;<br /><b>attrib -h -r -s blastclnnn.exe </b>and press<b> "Enter</b>;<br /><b>attrib -h -r -s autorun.inf</b> and press <b>Enter</b>.<br /> <br /> <b><u>Step 5</u></b><br /> Delete the files by typing the following from the command prompt:<br /><b>del scvhost.exe</b> and press <b>Enter</b>;<br /><b>del blastclnnn.exe</b> and press <b>Enter</b>;<br /><b>del autorun.ini</b> and press <b>Enter</b>.<br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Step 6</u></b><br /> Type "<b>cd\</b>" to return to the main Windows directory.<br />Unprotect and delete the Autorun.inf file by typing the following from the Windows directory command prompt:<br /><b>attrib -h -r -s autorun.inf</b> and press <b>Enter</b>;<br /><b>del</b> <b>autorun.inf</b> and press <b>Enter</b>;<br />Type <b>regedit</b> and press <b>Enter</b> to open the Registry Editor.<br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Step 7</u></b><br /> Locate the following entry:<br /><b>HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run</b>.<br />Delete the incorrectly spelled Yahoo! Messenger entry with the value<br /><b>c:\windows\system32\scvhost.exe.</b><br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Step 8</u></b><br /> Locate the following key:<br /><b>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon</b>.<br />Within the key, there is a <b>shell</b> entry with the value of <b>explorer.exe, scvhost.exe</b>. Edit the entry to remove the reference to Scvhost.exe, leaving Explorer.exe as the remaining value in the registry entry.<br /> <br /> <b><u>Step 9</u></b><br /> Locate the following key:<br /><b>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE&gt;SYSTEM&gt;CurrentControlSet&gt;Services&gt;<br /></b>Delete the following subkeys from the left panel:<br /><b>RpcPatch</b><br /><b>RpcTftpd <br /></b>Exit the command prompt and return to the operating system. Type <b>Exit</b>, and press <b>Enter</b>.<br /> <br /> <b><u>Step 10</u></b><br /> Reboot the PC.<br />If Scvhost.exe still resides on the computer, repeat these steps or try using an automatic removal program from McAfee or Symantec.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br />

How To Remove A Virus From Your Computer


Requirements: On an uninfected PC connected to the Internet, download the following programs to a thumbdrive. We will need this to fix the infected computer.
Instructions:
  1. Shut down the computer as soon as you realize there is a problem. Pop-ups, program errors, dll errors, fake Anti-Virus scanners, and similar are signs there is a problem. Shut down the computer normally, or hold the power button in until the computer shuts off.
  2. Power on the computer, and hit F8 before the Windows Startup screen appears. Select Safe Mode.
  3. Login if asked to, if not select Yes to continue.
  4. Click on the Start menu, select Run, type msconfig and press Ok, or type msconfig into the Start menu search box and press Enter.
  5. Under the General tab, select Diagnostic Startup. Press Apply.
  6. Under the Services tab, check the Hide All Microsoft Services box, and uncheck any services you don't recognize in the window.
  7. Under the Startup tab, select Disable All. Press Apply and Ok.
  8. Don't restart the computer yet.
  9. The System Restore Utility backs up selected files automatically to the Restore folder. Quite often are infected files stored there as backup files, and many Virus Scanners are unable to delete these files. If you suspect your computer may be infected, it is recommended that you disable the System Restore Utility to remove the infected files from the Restore folder.Select your OS for directions on how to disable the System Restore Utility - XP, Vista, 7
  10. While in Safe Mode, insert your USB thumbdrive and open it in My Computer.

  13. Open up SmitFraudFix.exe from your thumbdrive. Press any key to continue when asked. Type 2, and press enter. When the scan is complete, restart your computer.
  14. If you had a fake Anti-Virus Scanner infection, open up Remove Fake Antivirus.exe from your thumbdrive. Press Start, and press Yes. When the scan and removal is Complete, restart the computer again.
  15. Install Microsoft Security Essentials, or your choice of Anti-Virus Software when the computer returns back to the desktop.
  16. Restart if asked to, and when the computer restarts, run a Full Scan in Microsoft Security Essentials.

Every time, the windows is loading, i got that error message "error loading winiio32.rom the specific module could not be found"


Heya

winiio32.rom is a not a system component.Unfortunately its a trojan(virus) commonly know as Vundo which directly infects your registry of the computer.It also disables all the anti-viruses,firewalls and all the other security features in the computer.In worst case scenarios it also disables .exe files.

Now in order to fix this problem you can do some following steps-:
Turn the computer off
As soon as you turn the computer on start tapping the F8 key repeatedly.
Now select safe mode with networking with the arrow keys on the keyboard.
Now the computer will boot in safe mode and you might see a black background with icons appearing very big but don't freak out its normal in safe mode.
Now i would recommend you to download Malwarebytes-:

http://www.techspot.com/downloadget.php?id=4716&file=1&evp=0a59f9584bb65ce60f8292a3fc06e555


Now as soon as you download it install and update it and run a full scan.It will definitely pick a lot of infections.Click on remove infections and restart your computer.

90% of the times this will fix your problem but as i dont know how severe your problem is for example-the virus might have disabled .exe files or might have put restrictions in the computer which will not allow you to open any .exe files nor you can end the the process of the virus which is still running in the background as it will also disable task manager.

So do let me know if these steps fixes your problem.In case if it doesn't fixes your problem we will try the next steps.Don't worry we will definitely fix this problem.

Thanks & Regads

I have virus av.exe and cannot remove it


This trojan runs as a rootkit, so you won't see it when it's running. It is a single file in C:\Users\username\AppData\Local (Vista), or C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\AppData (XP), It is marked as a system file, so you'll need to use the Folder Options in the control panel, to unhide hidden and system files and folders. As I said, with the rootkit loaded, you still won't see it there until you unload it. It runs by changing the registry so that any .exe run, will instead load the trojan. Attempts to run Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox will also instead run it. If you delete the file, or your antivirus finds it and deletes it, the changes to the registry will mean that from then on, whenever you try to run a program, you'll get a windows message asking you to select the file you want to use to open the .exe. (if this is the case, you'll need to use regedit in safe mode with command prompt, or rename regedit.exe to regedit.com).

To defeat the trojan, you must undo the registry changes, then reboot to reveal the file, then delete it. Here's how.

Run regedit. The trojan will load and give you all the fake warnings hassle. Do Ctrl-Alt_Del, and find the process 'av.exe'. End the process. Now in the registry editor, search for 'av.exe'. You should find a section HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.exe, where the (Default) REG_SZ has been set to 'secfile'. Edit this back to 'exefile'. Keep searching and you'll find HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\secfile. Delete the whole secfile section. Keep searching - you'll find the odd line where it may be a recently 'searched for' item, where you can just delete the line, and you'll find it in a command line to run Internet Explorer. The full path to the trojan will be specified before the path to Internet Explorer. Edit this line to remove the path to the trojan, leaving just the path to Internet Explorer. A similar edit may be required for Mozilla Firefox. Find any other occurences of av.exe and deal with them in the same way.

Now, reboot the PC, and the trojan will not start up. Display system and hidden files, then go to the location of the trojan. Now you can see the little swine. Delete it, and empty the recycle bin.

Problem solved.

Enjoy!

My computer where infected with virus please help me to remove it


There may be another alternative.

You can remove the infected hard drive and use another computer to put it into as a slave/secondary drive.

You can then try to "Clean" the infections via this computers antivirus and malware cleaners. Check the Gizmo site for some really great advice and loads of programs that can help you.

Make sure this other computer's security is up to date first.
