  1. This worked brilliantly! I had to download it onto a flashdrive from another computer and install it onto mine while in Safemode with Networking, but as soon as I entered the command in the run window it killed it. Thank you so much!

  2. Recently my pc also infected with privacy virus, I could not run any program.

    Finally through the safemode I managed to login
    and run the windows defender few times and the virus caught I removed it.

    Then I went to the appdata or programdata (windows 7) folder found the Privacy file and deleted it.

    Then I was having relaxed breath.

    The virus creators are making money in crooked way or revenging out of evil thoughts. They are not hormonious and not generous to the world. I assure that they cannot prosper.

    Thanks for the helpful article.
