Remove Brontok Virus Manually


Here we will see on how to remove the most sticky virus "BRONTOK". Nowadays this is the virus that is found in most of the systems. It makes the Registry Editor (Regedit) disabled, it disables the Hidden folders and files option and it also sometimes disables the Task Manager.

The process for removing the brontok virus is simpler and without relying on any anti-virus softwares, we can remove the virus manually.

The procedure to do so :

1. Open the computer using Safe Mode with Command prompt and give the following two commands

reg delete HKCU\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\policies\system /v "DisableRegistryTools"

run HKLM\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\policies\system /v "DisableRegistryTools"

Now these two commands makes your registry editor enabled using which we will finish up the task.

2. Now go to Run and type regedit and hit enter.

3.Now follow the path

and delete the entries in the right side of the screen having keywords "Brontok" or "Tok".

Now the virus is deleted but we have to make the folder options enabled.

4. Restart the system, open the registry editor and follow the path

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Currentversion\Policies\Explorer\ 'NoFolderOption'

and delete this entry.

To be on the safe side search your computer with the name *.exe and do remember to include the hidden files option and delete the search results which has as a Folder Icon.

Now your system is free from Brontok Virus.

The purpose of this tool is to give you some directions of location of mobile, so that if you call the person, you know how you'll be billed. Or you could recall the person by knowing the state and operator.
