How to remove Boot.vbs virus from your computer?


Q. How to remove  Boot.vbs virus from your computer?
Boot.vbs is an undesirable program that should be removed instantly from the system. Boot.vbs is added by the W32/Isetspy-C worm and is related to the processes dxdlg.exe, wscript.exeand kinza.exe.
A. So here is the fix to remove the boot.vbs virus.
Steps:
1.    Before performing the following steps, take a backup of the registry and temporary disable the System Restore.
2.    Boot in the safe mode and go to Task Manager to kill the following processes in order:
dxdlg.exe
wscript.exe
3.    Type msconfig in the Run box and remove the above processes from the startup list.
4.    Navigate to the following key in the Registry Editor (type regedit in Run),
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
5.    Now in the right side, right click on Userinit and delete everything except the value “C:\windows\system32\userinit.exe”.
6.    Open My Computer and search and permanently delete the following files
dxdlg.exe
wscript.exe
boot.vbs
kinza.exe
Most probably they will be found in the “C:\Windows\System32\” folder.
Reboot in normal mode and restart the System Restore. The problem would have gone.

Solution

Press the Windows key
Move mouse to the bottom left of the screen. When the start screen icon appears, click once.

OR (as commented by Rick) Press the ‘Windows key’+'R’
Type %appdata% and press Enter. This should take you to “C:\Users\<User-Name>\AppData\Roaming”.
Navigate to “\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup”. The full path should now look something like:
“C:\Users\<user-name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup”.
Add shortcuts to the programs you want to automatically start into this folder.

You can now add any shortcuts you want to start when you start your computer.
