How to Remove SCVHOST.exe or W32/YahLover.Worm.gen

February 12, 2008

The computer virus/worm that hides itself using the name SCVHOST.EXE or
SCVHOSTS.EXE, (don’t get mistaken for SVCHOST.EXE. It is one of the vital
programs of Windows,take a look in the spelling). One of my friends emailed me that this
virus first spread out through Yahoo Messenger. So if you happen to have some invites
from unknown friends please ignore.
The virus is detected as W32/YahLover.Worm.gen of McAfee Antivirus and as
Win32/Autorun.R.worm by NOD32. This virus/worm infects your computer in one of
these means.

• firstly it installs itself in autorun.inf in Open option of the AUTORUN. Once you
happen to double click it, this will run and start spreading itself unto your system.

• Furthermore, it copies itself through all the shared folders on your computers
throughout the network and installs itself in the registry entries remotely using a
GUEST account (through System:Remote).

Attributes of the Virus

• This virus/worm blocks the task manager when ypressing Ctrl+Alt+Del to launch
the task manager
• It blocks the registry (The worm changes the registry to prevent running task
manager and registry for harder detection). "Error says that Registry Editing has
been blocked by an administrator".
• It also restarts the computer when you try to go to the command prompt. (This
happens during my ways of disinfecting my PC Manually. See related article How
to get rid of autorun.inf)
• It duplicates itself to different locations of the shared folders. The duplicated
virus/worm uses a FOLDER icon with an .exe file extension. WARNING!
DONOT double click these folders.
• McAfeealleged that it changes the configuration of your Yahoo Messenger (see
McAfee info)
• It autostart via registry keys Windows->Run and add itself to WinNT-
>WinLogon->Explorer.exe

How to remove the virus manually? (Try this it works with my PC and other systems I
have deal with. But if you can’t, try using an ANTI-VIRUS like McAfee or NOD32):

1. Boot your system in Safe Mode Command Prompt Only (Press F8 when your
computer restarts, a menu will be shown and select the option)
2. After you log-in the command prompt will be opened (LOG-IN AS
ADMINISTRATOR).
3. Type CD C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 (I assume that your Windows System
files are located at Drive C)
4. Type DIR /ah, this will display all hidden files on this directory folder. You will
see the following files which is used by the virus to spread itself:
AUTORUN.INI, BLASTCLNNN.EXE, and SCVHOST.EXE
5. Type ATTRIB -H -R -S SCVHOST.EXE
6. Type ATTRIB -H -R -S BLASTCLNNN.EXE
7. Type ATTRIB -H -R -S AUTORUN.INI
8. Type DEL SCVHOST.EXE
9. Type DEL BLASTCLNNNN.EXE
10. Type DEL AUTORUN.INI
11. Type CD\
12. Type ATTRIB -H -R -S AUTORUN.INF
13. Type DEL AUTORUN.INF

After removing the virus/worm files, IT MUST be removed from the registry of your
system.

1. In the command prompt type REGEDIT and press ENTER key. This will run the
Registry Editor
2. From the registry, look for the keys:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run, you will
see an entry Yahoo! Messengger (it’s spelled like this) with a value
c:\windows\system32\scvhost.exe, Delete this entry.
3. Look again for the key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows
NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon, there’s an entry named: SHELL, it has a value =
Explorer.exe SCVHOST.EXE , DON’T delete this entry!!! Just edit this entry and
REMOVE the SCVHOST.EXE so that Explorer.exe will be the only value that remains
from this registry entry.
