Make sure you set your file manager to display hidden and system files. If Win32.Igloo uses rootkit technologies, use our RootAlyzer or our Total Commander anti-rootkit plugins.

Important: There are more files that cannot be safely described in simple words. Please use Spybot-S&D to remove them.

Registry:

You can use regedit.exe (included in Windows) to locate and delete these registry entries.
  • Delete the registry value "System32" at "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Runonce\".
  • Delete the registry value "System32" at "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices\".
