    How to manually remove iLivid
    « on: November 26, 2013, 07:53:01 AM »
    Hi,

    A Windows 7 Pro user was on YouTube, searching for Bentley (professional CAD systems) related video presentations and think that while being on YouTube got infected by iLivid. A Message now appears after every startup of the machine:

    Quote
    iLivid

    Allow iLivid on firewall

    Click ”Yes” on the User Account Control notification in your taskbar to continue using iLivid Download Manager.


    It is not visible as installed in the Control Panel.

    Do anyone here have a step by step manually removal procedure?

    Hello and welcome to Computer Hope Forum. My name is Dave. I will be helping you out with your particular problem on your computer.

    1. I will be working on your Malware issues. This may or may not solve other issues you have with your machine.
    2. The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.
    3. If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to ask.
    4. Please DO NOT run any other tools or scans while I am helping you.
    5. It is important that you reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
    6. Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Be assured, any links I give are safe.
    7. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.

    If you can't access the internet with your infected computer you will have to download and transfer any programs to the computer you're using now and transfer them to the infected computer with a CD-RW or a USB storage device. I prefer a CD because a storage device can get infected. If you use a storage device hold the shift key down while inserting the USB storage device for about 10 secs. You will also have to transfer the logs you receive back to the good computer using the same method until we can get the computer back on-line.

      Hello SuperDave, and thank you for your detailed welcome reply.

      The reason that I specifically asked about a manually removal procedure is that I do not want to fill up the computer with a bunch of (unknown) software just to get rid of one. Yes, also; I am digitally paranoid.

      There must be experts out there knowing what this software is doing to a system, hence knowing how to manually remove it from the Windows Registry (Windows 7 Pro). My hope is that some of these experts will see the challenge and respond on computerhope.com.

      We will remove them when we're finished cleaning. All the tools I use are safe to use. If you don't run the scans and post the logs, I can't help you.

        Finding time to download, install, scan and uninstall is not easy. Both the user and I are very busy. Today I had the chance to dig a little deeper and actually got rid of this message together with the iLivid software. No more annoying messages from iLivid.

        I am aware of the risk that there still might be something else in there, related to when iLivid got in there the first time, so we will try to follow that up later on.

        Here is how I removed the iLivid software from this Windows 7 computer. (For anyone trying or needing this, be aware that the users name should be exchanged where I have typed N A M E):

        • Found the uninstaller file and managed to uninstall the software:

        Code: [Select]
        C:\Users\ N A M E \AppData\Local\iLivid\Uninstall.exe
        • Searched the C-drive for iLivid and deleted the following found file:

        Code: [Select]
        C:\Users\ N A M E \AppData\Local\Temp\qtsingleapp-iLivid-42b6-1-lockfile

        • I also searched the registry for iLivid and found the following which I deleted:

        Quote
        HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.torrent
        Name: (Standard)
        Name: iLivid.torrent_backup

        HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\iLivid.torrent

        HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Magnet\DefaultIcon
        Name: (Standard)

        HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Magnet\shell\open\command
        Name: (Standard)

        HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\iLivid\

        HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.torrent
        Name: (Standard)

        HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.torrent\UserChoice
        Name: Progid

        Name: iLivid

        Messing around in the Registry is a dangerous practice.
