How to Eliminate Media Player Virus
There used to be an mp3 virus, my friend, I remember when I posted about how to eradicate mp3 viruses. Now comes the new variant turning all desktop icons into a Windows Media Player icon. Maybe my friend is having a problem like this. If you have a problem like this, do not panic first because the virus is not too dangerous, although it has changed all the icons on the desktop into a media player icon, but the application on the computer can still be used.
Based on my experience dealing with laptops that have been attacked by this virus, applications that are in the folder can still be run normally. Now to run the required application, you must first enter Windows Explorer and then search for applications that will be opened or run. For example, you will open the Photoshop CS application. The steps are Right-click on the Start Menu, then select Open Windows Explorer (win 7). Click drive C followed by double clicking the Program Files folder. Double click the Adobe folder Kuota murah and double click the Photoshop CS folder and the last double click the Photoshop application. The Photoshop program will run normally.
Although you can run the application normally, but I’m sure you won’t be happy with the desktop icon display, which only consists of one form and color in the form of a media player icon, of course you want to restore the icon’s appearance as before according to each application. For this the following is a way to remove the media player icon. For me, it’s better for me to reformat and install Windows from scratch so I can be more confident than just changing regedit. But for friends who want a quick way to finish this virus, please read the method below that I adapt from various sources.
Copy all the code below, then run notepad (c: \ windows \ notepad) and paste the code that was copied earlier in the notepad worksheet. Save the notepad file with a free name, but the extension must be reg. Example: virusmedia.reg or antiviruswmp.reg or cleanmedia.reg. After saving, then run the file by double clicking the virusmedia.reg or antiviruswmp.reg or cleanmedia.reg file. The final step is restarting your computer.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
00,6f, 00,6f, 00,74,00,25,00,5c, 00.53,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d, 00.33,00, \
32.00,5c, 00,73.00,68,00,65,00,6c, 00,6c, 00,33.00,32,00,2e, 00,64,00,6c, 00,6c, \
00,2c, 00,2d, 00,31,00,30,00,31,00,35,00,36,00,00,00
So little info based on my experience to clean up the media player virus that turns all dektop icons into mediaplayer windows icons. If the method above also doesn’t work, try to follow the following method.
Run Regedit, then go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ FileExts \ .exe \
Delete all entries related to Windows Media Player, if you are still hesitant to delete which one, you can compare with a computer or laptop that has not been exposed to this media player virus.
The Windows Media Player virus turned out to come from the internet when you were downloading a video, the video file that entered your computer turned out to have inserted a virus modifying icon into this MPW, so be careful in downloading video. Hopefully this info is useful.
