Now go to
control panel –> scheduled tasks and delete “At1” task listed there.
Once done, close all windows.

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.

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

and press enter
Click on Edit –> Find and search for regsvr.exe . Find and delete all the occurrences of regsvr.exevirus (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.

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).
You have cleaned your computer from regsvr. Just make sure to scan your pendrive the next time you plug in
