How to Remove AutoIT Worm

How to remove AutoIT worm is one of the basic tools you need to know to have a virus free PC. I have here a simple step by step procedure which could help you remove that AutoIT worm in your PC.

Step – 1.Search the computer for "mschr.exe" by clicking Start > Search > All Files or Folders. Write down the location of the folder containing the files, as you will need this information later.

Step – 2.Remove the viral process using Windows Task Manager by pressing "Ctrl + Alt + Del" on the keyboard. Look for "mschr.exe" under Image Name. Highlight the viral process and click "End Process."

Step – 3.Delete any remaining virus files by clicking Start > Run > (type) cmd and click "OK." Type in the Dir:/folder name from Step 1. Example C:\%SYSTEMROOT%\system32\ Delete all the files by typing "del filename." Example: del mschr.exe

Step – 4.Edit the Registry by clicking Start > Run > (type) regedit and click "OK." Search the registry keys for the following and right click on each registry key and click "Delete."HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\explorer\Advanced\Folder\Hidden\SHO WALLCheckedValue = dword:00000000

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\SvcHost, netsvcs = %Previous data% and %Random%

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\[random]\ParametersServiceDll = %MalwarePath%

And that’s it. A four step to have you AutoIT virus free PC.
