how to remove the new folder.exe or autorun.inf.regsvr.exe virus

The virus new folder.exe or autorun.inf.regsvr.exe are mainly popular as pen drive virus because there are often found in pen drives and are transmitted very fastly to the computer's when the pen drive's are inserted in the pc's or laptop's or netbook's.The main reason behind the virus spreading fastly is because most of the anti-virus installed in the computer's like avast,bit deffender,etc. are unable to find this virus or even though the virus is found there are unable to delete it or quarantie the virus .
Hence i came up with my experienced view of deleting this virus and stopping it from damaging your computer.please follow the following steps in order to remove the new folder.exe or autorun.inf.regsvr.exe virus from your system :

  1. Manual process of removal :
  • Search for autorun.inf file. It is a read only file so you will have to change it to normal by right clicking the file , selecting the properties and un-check the read only option
  • Open the file in notepad and delete everything and save the file.
  • Now change the file status back to read only mode so that the virus could not get access again.

  • Click start->run and type msconfig and click ok
  • Go to startup tab look for regsvr and uncheck the option click OK.
  • Click on Exit without Restart, cause there are still few things we need to do before we can restart the PC.
  • Now go to control panel -> scheduled tasks, and delete the At1 task listed their.
  • Click on start -> run and type gpedit.msc and click Ok.

  • If you are Windows XP Home Edition user you might not have gpedit.msc in that case download and install it from Windows XP Professional Edition:gpedit.msc and then follow these steps.
  • Go to users configuration->Administrative templates->system
  • Find “prevent access to registry editing tools” and change the option to disable.

  • Once you do this you have registry access back.
  • Click on start->run and type regedit and click ok .
  • Go to edit->find and start the search for regsvr.exe .

  • Delete all the occurrence of regsvr.exe; remember to take a backup before deleting. KEEP IN MIND regsvr32.exe is not to be deleted. Delete regsvr.exe occurrences only.
  • At one ore two places you will find it after explorer.exe in theses cases only delete the regsvr.exe part and not the whole part. E.g. Shell = “Explorer.exe regsvr.exe” the just delete the regsvr.exe and leave the explorer.exe
  • Click on start->search->for files and folders.
  • Their click all files and folders
  • Type “*.exe” as filename to search for
  • Click on ‘when was it modified ‘ option and select the specify date option
  • Type from date as 1/31/2008 and also type To date as 1/31/2008

  • Now hit search and wait for all the exe’s to show up.
  • Once search is over select all the exe files and shift+delete the files, caution must be taken so that you don’t delete the legitimate exe file that you have installed on 31st January.
  • Also selecting lot of files together might make your computer unresponsive so delete them in small bunches.
  • Also find and delete regsvr.exe, svchost .exe( notice an extra space between the svchost and .exe)
2.The removal of the new folder.exe or autorun.inf.regsvr.exe virus is now done after you had completely deleted them.
finally, now you need to do a reboot of your system.
(please don't press directly the restrat button on the cpu ).
