Win 7 Home Security virus remove problem

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hi, I wen't on my computer today to and found that I couldn't access any programs cause of a virus which is "Win 7 Home Security" I found out how to remove it but my problem is after I end it in task manager and try to go to edit the registery to remove it properly it turns on again.

I think I might be able to stop it if I can get into safe mode but I just can't seem to remember how to get into it since my computer doesn't access safe mode with the F8 key or the F5 key.

I did try to get into msconfig to set safeboot but I can't get into that ether. So far I have tried almost every key on my keyboard to access safe boot but ofcourse it none of them worked.

So what I'm wondering is if anyone knows any other ways or keys/key combinations that could get me into safe mode or if theirs anything I could do to be able to get into the registery without it stopping me.

Actually it seems it is stopping me from getting into safe mode so I'm not sure how I'm gonna go about removing it. I can't really afford to format my computer since I have allot of stuff on it that I can't take off the computer cause of the virus so I'll leave that as a last resort.

So I suppose I should change my question. Is there anyway for me to remove this virus? >.>

Restart the computer in "Safemode With Command Prompt".
When cmd shows up type "regedit'.
navigate to "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\\exefile\\shell\\open\\command\ \"
Click on the default key and click "modify" remove everything except for ("%1" %*).
Close regedit
in cmd type "explorer.exe"
Click "start" then "computer" and navigate to "C:\\Users\\[USERNAME]\\AppData\\Local"
Delete all files with 3 character file names. note: You will have have "protected view" off in "folder options" and "show hidden files and folders "on
You can now restart the compter and the virus will be gone.


been removing these left right and center at work

You need a boot disk with a virtual copy of xp running. Try forget a copy of umbc boot disk and pit Dr web cure it on a flash drive, copy it to c drive and run a scan.

Also if that's too much get a copy of Kaspersky boot disk and run a scan at start up. Every security vendor has a boot disk to use, most are free.

I desided to just reformat since I cant open anything at all. The virus has stopped me from going into safe mode and is stopping me from opening any sort of program.

I managed to get the files I needed off the computer and I havent formatted it for almost 2 years now, so it was getting a little slow before the virus anyway so it would be better to just start again.

Just out of curiosity, do you know how you contracted the virus?

edit: One thing you might want to do when you format. Make a 60Gb partition for the new OS and installed apps. Store documents and stuff on another drive or the leftover partition on the OS drive. Then when you get everything re-installed you can "image" the OS and installed apps so if you ever need to replace it you will have a fresh image to put back on. I update my image every Saturday
