Manual parasite removal help: How To

Killing running processes.
Use Task Manager to end running processes. You can call Task Manager by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL key combination, or right-clicking "Taskbar" and selecting "Task Manager". "Application" tab shows running applications, "Processes" tab - running processes. Choose the process you want to end and click "End" button.

Unregistering DLLs.
You can unregister DLLs by entering proper string in command line (START/RUN). Regsvr32 allows you to unregister unwanted DLLs. Command line syntax: regsvr32 [/u] [/s] [/n] [/i[:cmdline]] dllname.
  • /u - unregister server;
  • /s - silent; display no message boxes;
  • /i - call DllInstall passing it an optional [cmdline];
  • when used with /u calls dll uninstall;
  • /n - do not call DllRegisterServer; this option must be used with /i.
After DLLs are unregistered, reboot the computer.

Removing registry items.
You can remove registry items using RegEdit. Launch RegEdit by entering "regedit" in command line or find "regedit.exe" file in your WINDOWS directory. Browse the left menu to find unwanted registry items, use the right window to remove them by right-clicking on the item and choosing "Delete".

  • right-click on Start Menu button, choose "Explore";
