Windows Easy Transfer malware automatic removal guide:
Before downloading and running GridinSoft Trojan Killer for removal of Windows Easy Transfer malware several extra preparatory steps must be done. This is required because Windows Easy Transfer blocks your Internet connection, and you will not be able to launch GridinSoft Trojan Killer. In order to prevent this blockage please take the following sequence of steps:
1. Make sure that your Operating System is tuned up in such a mode that hidden files and folders of your PC are viewable. The instruction on how to do it can be found here for Windows XP and here for Windows Vista/7.
2. Choose “View” tab in the window that appeared, and in the advanced settings choose the option “Show hidden files and folders”. Press OK.
3. Go to the folder %User Profile%\Application Data\Microsoft.
Warning! Depending on the Operating System of your PC, %UserProfile% stands for C:\Documents and Settings\[Current User] for Windows XP and C:\Users\[Current User] for Windows Vista/7.
In other words, the folder that needs to be opened is as follows, depending on the operating system:
%SysDrive%Documents and Settings[Current User]Application Data\Microsoft for Windows XP
%SysDrive%Users[Current User]Application Data\Microsoft for Windows Vista/7.
In this folder there will be the main executable file of Windows Easy Transfer malware (possibly with the icon of *avi file), having some random name.
4. Rename the above-mentioned executable file into some other name of your preference and restart your PC. Upon the system restart Windows Easy Transfer will no longer block your Internet browser.
