How to remove ntdetec1.exe virus from windows

by Rohit Khurana on February 14, 2008



We are receiving lots of mails on virus infections caused on a large number of system with some most common list of virus, which infect various windows systems.

This post is in continuation to our series of post in which we discuss how to deal with viruses and how can you remove viruses.

Today we are going to discuss about ntdetec1.exe virus.

Most Common Symptoms Of Ntdetect1.exe Virus are:
1. Task Manager doesn’t open or it is blocked.
2. Regedit or registry editing has been disabled.
3. Folder Options are not visible under File Menu >> Tools

Let us see how we can delete ntdetect1.exe virus.


NTdetec1.exe executes itself with the following name list process.


Removal Procedure For Ntdetec1.exe


1. Open Start >> Run and type cmd and press enter.

2. Type the following commands :

taskkill /im cmrss.exe
taskkill /im ntdetec1.exe
taskkill /im shell32.exe

Note: Make sure you are in the operating system drive at your command prompt

run the following command.

attrib ntdetec1 -s -h /s /d

3. Locate the folder ntdetec1 in your operating system root directory and delete it permanently.

But you will need to delete the registry key associated with the virus (if it is present). For this go to Start > Run. Type regedit in run window and press enter. This will open registry editor. Locate the key as shown below and delete it.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\Explorer\ Run\"winlogon" = "C:\ntdetec1\run.exe"

We hope above solution will help to fix your system against ntdetec1.exe virus.
