Procedure to remove Khatra.exe virus manually

1)Go to task manager and select regsvr.exe(if found), gHost.exe , khatra.exe , Xplorer.exe rt click and select end process tree.
press WIN+r or start>RUN

2)type cmd and hit enter

3)GO to the the drive where your OS is installed

4)In the command prompt make sure you get the command line as c:\ or d:\ (this can be achieved by the command "cd .." without quotes)

5)Type attrib -s -h -r khatra.exe
Repeat the same process for the location c:\windows\system32

6)type del khatra.exe

7)Follow the same process for gHost.exe & Xplorer.exe as they are also part of the virus.

To make sure that the virus is out of you pc , check your registry
1)win+R type regedit

2)ctrl+F type in search one by 1 the names of the 3 processes i.e khatra,gHost,Xplorer

3)search the entire registry n go-on deleting the values you find.

Is your registry blocked by viruses?
Do you get the message "registry editing has been disabled by your admin"? then follow the instructions below

Enable Registry Editor
1:Extract the file
2:Right click on the file unhook.inf and select install
Download Registry Editor below

Afterward download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware install then update then run program. You may need to reinstall your Anti-Virus program and do a update the run and remove any found virus.

Hi thaslim, I am sorry that you are having a problem such as this. Please go here..
website
then download either SuperAntiSpyware or Malwarebytes. Which ever one you choose to use, update the program before you begin a scan. Both of these programs will work in safe mode if you should find it necessary to do so. Please post back and let us know if you were successful or need more help. Good luck...Garry

thaslim, I apologize for not reading your post more closely. The infected computer is the one you have home and you are not hooked up to the internet. If this is the case then you would need to use a computer having an internet connection, along with a cd burner and a blank CD. Burn those programs to disk and install either program onto your computer, but you will be without the most recent updates. This may work for you. Sorry for having to double post here. Good luck...Garry
