Remove REGSVR.EXE and New Folder.exe viruses completely

Time for some virus busting I guess..here is how you can remove “regsvr.exe” and “new folder.exe” from your computer.

Step 1 - Some Startup Repairs

First of all, boot into safe mode.After you get to your desktop,press F3 or Ctrl + F and search for “autorun.inf” file in your computer and delete all the subsequent files. I case you are no able to delete them, select all the files and uncheck the”Read Only” option. If you are still not able to delete them , you might want to try out Unlocker.
Now go to
start – > run –> type ”msconfig
and press enter

Go to startup tab and uncheck “regsvr”, click ok and then click on “Exit without restart”.
Now go to

control panel –> scheduled tasks and delete “At1” task listed there.

Once done, close all windows.

Step 2 - Changing Configurations

Your registry might be disabled,and you need to activate it back to undo all the malicious changes done by worm.In order to do that, you need to go to
start – > run –> type ”gpedit.msc
and press enter

then navigate to
users configuration –> Administrative templates –> systems
Find “prevent access to registry editing tools” , double click it and change the option to disable. Once done, your Regedit will be enabled. In case your Task manager is disabled, you need to enable it.


Step 3 - Registry Edits

Now we have to perform some registry edits to enable our explorer and to remove all instances of worm from the registry. Go to
start – > run –> type ”regedit
and press enter

Click on Edit –> Find and search for regsvr.exe . Find and delete all the occurrences of regsvr.exe virus (don't delete  regsvr32.exe as its not a virus).

Then navigate to entry
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

and modify the entry
Shell = “Explorer.exe regsvr.exe”



to delete the regsvr.exe from it,so that it becomes
Shell = “Explorer.exe

Once done, close all windows and get ready to delete all virus files.

Step 4 - Deleting Virus Files

The final step is to delete all the virus files in your computer. To do this, Press F3 or Ctrl + F and search for regsvr.exe (make sure to search in hidden folders ) and delete all “regsvr.exe” “svchost .exe” files (notice the gap between ‘svchost’ and ‘.exe’, keep in mind you don't delete the legitimate file.).

Clean your recycle bin and restart your PC (perform a cold boot).

and finally your done...!! yup....
