  4. Hello to all,

    I had the same problem. i tried F-PROT antivirus for DOS. Everything is ok now for me.

    you also try, its a nice one.

    With regards,

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  7. thank u a lot i have done a great effort to remove this virus and i even formated my pc and downloaded windows again but af first it was removed then after an hour the virus was found again but i have a small question how can i remove this virus from a flash disk i will be so grateful it u found a way to help me and again thnx a lot

    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.

  23. I tryied smart_av.exe but it did not detect the virus. I even scanned the specific folders which have the .exe extentions but it didn’t work.
    Anymore tools i can try?
    It helped me with just restoring the default windows folder options.

  24. The problem is because it can not detect all of new folder variants. The support for removing other variants will be included by the time


  26. Ghana, can you explain please what nonsense we gave you? It’s always good to get your feedback but you should tell us if we made a mistake and also advise us about the improvements.

  30. Your antivirus didn’t delete new folder.exe If you want to analyze it. I’m happy to give it to you.

  31. 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.

  32. pls help!!!!

    when i reboot it happens again..
    can anyone tell me stronger removel tool then the smart tool
    i want complete solution plssssssss

  34. 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.

  35. everytime i log on my computer this appear (window system 32 tool and del folder .exe please help me remove it .

  36. Thanks for this are such a great help man! Hope you can help more people regarding viruses..thumbs up to you man!

  37. Hi,

    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.

I think mobile also affected by this virus. PLz help me. mail me solution on [email protected]. Is your tool work on WIndows XP

  39. 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.

    This tool automated everything..

    Otherwise i had to do everything manually which wastes too much time..

  66. hey does new folder virus also create a file name same as of the our real files such as if we got a folder named asf then it will create asf.exe files.

  67. If (“Your Drive exist”) Then
    Copy (“\Virus.exe”)

    this is a sample code……hehehe

  68. I tried many of these nasty tools which will never work.
    Try Quick Heal version 9.0 or greater. Online scan would provide best results. I Tried using version 10.
    I searched *.exe in search (My system was connected to internet however). All the trojans and viruses that are executable files are detected and repaired.
    Now I got completely rid of this ‘new folder.exe’ virus.
    Quickheal also repairs the root cause for this virus i.e., Pen Drive. ‘Boot.exe’ is the root for the ‘New Folder.exe’ which resides in the pen drive.
    By the way, Quick Heal is a free software tool

  69. i think not, i tried to download quick heal antivirus, its nice anti virus, but i dont know how to register the licensed version… thank you versy much for prividing this

  70. WOa… i have this FUvirus… but its effect was been removed when i tried the smat virus remover… it really works but the picture of the affcted filed will not go back to its normal picture…guess u have to edit it…but any ways it works!!!

  76. Hi I hope someone can help.

    This tool did NOT fix my problem with ” folder options” which is that under “extensions” no new ones can be added and for “folder” options the “run commando promp” is defalt and the option “open” is gone!!!
    I can add a new “run this file with this program” (but not delete it again” and this runs when clicking.
    Result is that when I click a folder it a) runs with commando prompt or b) some other program but DOES NOT open the folder!
    Very strange.. The Windows explorer still work, this problem relates to the general windows.

    Any good ideas??
