Manual removal of newfolder.exe virus

Asked By 200 points N/A Posted on -

Hi guys,

My computer is infected by a virus, that is eating up all my empty hard disk space. It is very surprising that my Antivirus application is not able to remove this virus. 

The virus is detected, but cannot be removed. This virus is called the newfolder.exe virus

I did some research online, as to how to remove this virus since my Antivirus software cannot remove it. 

I found some tools to remove it automatically, but I think that I am doing something wrong because it is not being removed.

Can someone help me with this or is there some way to remove this virus manually?

This same new folder.exe virus was in my PC.  I used many ways to remove this virus.  Lots of ways are not working correctly. But I finally got the best way of deleting new folder.exe virus.   

Lets start

  1. Open Windows Task Scheduler or go to Control Panel→ Scheduled Tasks and remove any suspicious task.
  2. Click on Start → Run and type → 'msconfig'.  In the Start Up tab, find entries like "newfolder.exe" and uncheck them.
  3. Open Task Manager. In the Process tab, delete any process with the name of newfolder.exe.
  4. Open registry by typing 'regedit' in the run command box.

Please take a back up of the registry before proceeding. Now search for "newfolder.exe".  If you find any entries, delete them. Please delete the entries having the exact name as "newfolder.exe" and not anything else.

If that is appended with other entries, delete its occurrence only and not the whole thing.

Restart the computer.

Thanks
