    VAC Codec (Video Access Codec) dates to April, 2008 and there have been numerous variants since then, including a variant that installs some policies that prevent Command Line execution.

    The above instructions are next to useless.

    My apology for being so blunt, Rahul. There are too many situations where more harm than good is done with incomplete or inaccurate instructions.

    The prime directive in malware removal is "do no harm".

    As I've said before:

    unless you are properly trained, please do not undertake malware removal. Free training is available and I can assure you that unless you have training and access to the private security forums for interaction with the developers of customized tools, you will do more harm than good. Malware removal has become very complex. At just one private site, the discussion thread of a specialized tool is over 380 pages [edit note: now over 390 pages]. The tutorial and specific malware topics specifically relating to that one tool are in a separate area.
    I've been involved in malware removal for a number of years and staying on top of the techniques, tools, and latest infectors is quite a task.
