How to Remove Hacked by godzilla virus in 5 minutes

Now a days with the increasing use of portable drives various types of virus infect a large number of system very easily.

One of these common virus is "Hacked by Godzilla Virus" which normally spreads through portable drives etc.

My system got infected with this Hacked by Godzilla Virus and I repaired my system without the help of any antivirus software.

Lets first discuss the common symptoms of the Godzilla Virus.

If your system is infected by this virus you will see the this text "Hacked by Godzilla Virus" in the title at the top of the window of Internet explorer

Some other symptoms:

1. Task manager is disabled.

2. Regedit (Command for registry edit) is disabled.

3. Folder options got disappeared From windows explorer.

4. Double clicking on any of your system drive( c: ,d: etc) initiates a new instance of the virus.

So, you won’t be able to open any of your drive by double click rather you have to open then by right click >> explore.

5. msconfig command is disabled – this virus is not dependent on system startup but it disables the msconfig command used to modify the system startup programs.

Let’s see how you can remove Godzilla virus in 5 minutes.

Follow the Step by step procedure given below to remove hacked by godzilla virus.


1. First download process explorer ,run it and end all the process which are running as wscript.exe

You may be wondering..what is RRT?

So for your FYI: RRT (Remove Restrictions Tool) v.1.0 is a tiny tool that does the work for AVs, it re-Enables all what the virus had disabled, and brings every thing including task manager ,regedit ,msconfig and hidden folder options back.

3. now, you have regedit command enabled.

Browse to Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \Software \Microsoft \Windows \Current Version \Run and delete MS32DLL (right click on it and select delete)

Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER \Software \Microsoft \Internet Explorer \Main and delete “Window Title” which has it’s value of “Hacked by Godzilla“ or you can also write your name as a recognition for yourself.

4. Open My Computer,File menu go to Tools -> Folder Options, click on View tab

Under Advance settings,
check “Show Hidden files and folders“,
uncheck “Hide extensions for known file types“,
uncheck “Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)
and click “OK” button

5. now right click on each of your drive and click explore now delete the files with names autorun.inf and MS32DLL.dll.vbs including your USB Drive

6. Restart your PC and your PC should be clean from Hacked by Godzilla.

    Hi I already followed the instructions and I removed the “hacked by godzilla” virus from my account on my pc. But there is another account on the same pc that still has the virus, and I cant find the specific files that I have to delete because I already deleted them before, so my account can work.

  7. says

    @diab.91@hotmail.com – if you have followed the procedure properly there will be no virus but if you had missed anything in terms of deletion of files there virus may become active again.

    Hi,

    I don’t understand step 3. Where do I find this:
    Browse to Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE Software Microsoft Windows Current Version Run and delete MS32DLL (right click on it and select delete)

    Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER Software Microsoft Internet Explorer Main and delete “Window Title” which has it’s value of “Hacked by Godzilla“ or you can also write your name as a recognition for yourself.

    when I try to use IE it says hacked by godzilla.
    Can you help me. There was a lot of hard work in building my website. I dont want it gg down. Help please thanks.

  9. says

    @Jess – In step 3, you need to open open registry by pressing window+ r and navigate to.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \Software \Microsoft \Windows \Current Version \Run and delete MS32DLL

    now navigate to the following path

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER \Software \Microsoft \Internet Explorer \Main

    and change the value in windows title or delete it….and follow the steps further

    @Yohan Perera – Some anti virus reports unsigned programs as virus…but rrt is not a virus. You can read the policy from rrt homepage

    First thanks, this method has been a gem for me twice now! (Any tips on PREVENTING this virus from re-attacking?!)
    Secondly, for those who stumbled at step 3. I also tripped up here and would suggest double checking the two parts of the step. First you are deleting MS32DLL from
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \Software \Microsoft \Windows \Current Version \Run
    and then you are removing the ‘Hacked by Godzilla’ title in
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER \Software \Microsoft \Internet Explorer \Main

    Be sure you are in
    ‘HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE’ for the first part and
    ‘HKEY_CURRENT_USER’ for the second.

    =) Good luck

  18. uzi says

    Hi,

    Thanx a lot worked for me too, i think …

    I didn’t pay attention here though, thanx for pointing that out!

    “Be sure you are in
    ‘HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE’ for the first part and
    ‘HKEY_CURRENT_USER’ for the second.@

  19. Chiel says

    Hello,

    I have followed the steps succesfully untill I faced step 5.
    When I checked ‘show hidden files and folders’ there were none by the name of autorun.inf and MS32DLL.dll.vbs.
    Is this a problem? ‘Hacked by Godzilla’ is gone, but is only the name gone or has the virus been deleted?

    Thanks in advance!

    Chiel

  20. kasper says

    You forgot nummber 1 and 2:

    Under Advance settings,
    check “Show Hidden files and folders“,
    —1—> uncheck “Hide extensions for known file types“, uncheck “Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)”<—–
    and click “OK” button

  21. Mnkay2 says

    Thanks for your help

    After downloads(both progams);
    I had trouble to access HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and HKEY_CURRENT_USER.
    Finally I simply pressed window + R keys simultaneously and opened regedit, where i found these foldes and than follow the instructions.

    I am actually free of this bastard message

    Wow so excited
    Thanks again

    I had Hacked by Godzilla on my internet but my brother took the computer and downloaded/installed Mozilla firefox. Now on the Mozilla internet I no longer see Hacked by Godzilla, is my computer fixed?

  23. abhishek says

    @darryl – make sure u remove all the infections by godzilla virus – then your computer is fixed – or if you have followed our procedure properly then ur computer is fixed.

  24. Simon says

    The ‘Hacked by Godzilla’ banner is merely a symptom. It’s like the headache you get with flu. Take some ibuprofen and it goes away but the flu virus is still there and you’ll feel sick again tomorrow.
    It does sound promising but these worm files are invisible and if they are still there they will continue to infect any external drive you connect, so it may be best to assume that the virus is NOT fixed and follow the steps anyway.
