by asif king of virus In reply to How do i remove viewDrive ...

note:it is our luck that view drive did not attack on our local disk;c (or) or the place where our xp/win7 is installed


1.if it is attacked on ur computer (or)laptop
2.open the attacked place and try to delete it directly
3.make sure that any devices like mass storage didnt be connected to ur pc
4.if it is deleted allright
5.if it still stays on your pc hard drives open task manager (or) right click on taskbar and select start task manager (or) task manager
6.open process which is rght side of applications
7.see for TASK HOST process
8.u will see two TASK HOST processes
9.one is 708K and other is 1000k above process(in win7)
10.right click on second TASK HOST process and open its file location
11.and delete it permanently
12.and close task manager and open hard drives on your pc like;D,E,F,
13.without opening view drive.exe delete it permanantly from all hard drives
14.restart your pc
15.enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanx...it did worked....!! But interestingly,in my 'processes',it was showing 3 task host...two of which were 1000K plus,but of these had a description-Host Processes.Also the remaining task host.exe was 900K plus,So can you tell which this happened and what is this Task Host..? and is this method a general way to delete viruses..?
However happily,i got the viewDrive virus removed...so Thank You for posting such an elegant way of deleting the ViewDrive virus..thanx...
