    dear sir it works only until system reboots. after that same my system i got



    scvvhostr.exe thes virus pls give us a proper solution

  8. Schajee

    My recommendation… use AOL’s ActiveVirusShield as you anti-virus, and Ad-Aware. AVS is based on Kaspersky and is FREE. You can download it from

    Turn off Auto-play on all ur drives, cause that’s how this virus spreads. Every time you plug in a USB or CD/DVD, scan it. Trust no one.

    To clean, run AVS… scan Critical Areas, it will prevent Sohand from protecting/regenerating itself. Run Ad-Aware to remove the Registry Entries. This will prevent it from starting as Windows boots up.

    Then re-start and safely delete the SSVICHOSST from either system32 or windows folders.

    Thanks Chief.
    U know I have the updated & Registered Symantec corporate edition Antivirus & have scanned my computer more then 3 to 4 times ( full scan ) but have not found this virus but the tool provided by you helped me get ride of this bloody virus. I was really tired of this virus, specially working with Removal Disks, even I was not able for format a Flash disk or go to Task Manager etc, & system was also very slow, altough I have an IBM Thinkpad Centrino Duo Laptop with 1700 Processor.. I was thinking to backup my data & reformat everything but was not pretty sure whether the data i backup will be clean of this virus, since SAV was not able to locate it.

    You saved lots of my time & Energy, Keep the good work up.

  21. roblie

    to the nhatquanglan variety of new folder.exe, one way that this virus persist is due to the modification to your autorun.inf located the root of your harddrives and shared folders.

    after cleaning the virus with the tools provided by this site download rrt from and remove restriction to hidden files. you can see the virus again SCVhost and autorun.inf. delete then modify the autorun.inf

    your previous autorun.inf must have this entry:

    Shellexe cute=SSCVIIHOST.exe




  22. roblie

    I mean the autorun contain this command:

    Shellexe cute=scvhosts.exe

    It helped me with just restoring the default windows folder options.

Any help on either subject welcome.

    This virus dwells on USB flash drives as well as your hard drive, and if you have one of those stuck in a USB port, it will jump back to your computer. In fact, you may not be able to remove it from the USB memory stick and may have to destroy it.

  42. William

    Try SpyDoctor from PC Tools, that worked fine for me but you have to pay for it. I also had Ewido do a free scan and it maybe did some of the removal too. Let me warn you that this virus jumps onto USB flash drives, and stays there. Not sure you can get it off, but for sure, cheaper to throw out the drive than take a chance at having the virus around again and again. It will jump from the flash drive back to your computer. You might also have the virus on some other attached drive as well.

    I have a problem with SSCVIIHOST.exe (aka: WORM_SOHANAD.BO)

    I has created duplicate files for every file I have on my computer, which is hundreds.

    I has disabled my task manager and has slowed down my computers process.

    I have found a fix to enable Task Manager, however I cannot seem to remove this newfolder.exe virus problem.

    I have also run an online virus scan as well as other spyware and trojan programmes.

    In terms of results, it finds the SSVIIHOST.exe as a problem, however It cannot rectify it.

    Will this tool provided help me on anyway??

    Any response would be highly appreciated!!!

    Thanks in advance.

  47. William

    To Anonymous of Nov 5th. You are correct that the virus is on your pendrive, USB drive and probably Sony cyber camera. And it will jump from those devices back to your computer. Unless you have the type of virus protection that will scan and remove this virus from remote drives, you may have to destroy those drives.
