Before downloading and running GridinSoft Trojan Killer for removal of Windows System Tasks virus several additional preparatory steps need to be done.

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.
Important! Depending on the Operating System of your computer, %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 should 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 System Tasks virus (possibly with the icon of *avi file), having some random name.
