File Zapper

Category: Utils and Tweaks
File Version: -
File License: General License

Description:
ZAP is a brilliant command line utility that allows the deletion of locked files.
If you have a file that you just can't delete, then zap.exe could be the answer. It removes files that don't want to go!

Just extract the zap.exe to a location of your choosing and then run as follows:

zap <fileForDeletion>

OK

This is to do with the Trojan I've posted about today.

What I did was remove the file to the desktop and called it 'file.old'. It was situated in c:\windows\system32\d3dnc.dll - (which I've checked on two machines with XPHome on, and it doesn't exist.)

Now when I run AVG or whatever the file does not appear as a virus - excellent.

BUT I can't delete it from the computer. Whatever I try, force delete, safe mode, anything, it says 'access denied'.

What I typed at the DosPrompt was:

c:\unzipped\zap c:\documentsandsettings\jonnathan\desktop\temp\file.old

Then hit return.

Said it wasn't a legit file, command or whatever, sorry, can't remember the exact words.

Am I doing it right, the File Zapper part???

N.B. I did download a zap prog called 'sys clean' or something like that, and it wouldn't let that remove it - stated 'access denied'

Hopefully if and when I run File Zapper correctly it may work, if not, anyone got any ideas how to remove it?
If not I'll just have to hide the file somewhere deep so it's never opened again sad.gif unless anyone out there thinks thats a bad idea!!!

Firstly, I've merged Dappy's cow with the support thread for File Zapper.

It's unlikely that this location is valid:

c:\documentsandsettings\jonnathan\desktop\temp\file.old

Why? Because most XP machines have a "C:\documents and settings" folder. Note the spaces. Long file names with spaces need to be quoted when used at the command prompt.

The easiest way to do it is to to type zap (or c:\unzipped\zap, or whatever the path is to your zip.exe), followed by a space, and then simply drag the offending file into your command prompt window.

E.g. start with this:

> c:\unzipped\zap

Now drag the file in and you end up with this:

> c:\unzipped\zap "C:\documents and settings\jonnathan\desktop\temp\file.old"

OK, put in c:\unzipped\zap, space, and dragged the file over.

Pressed return.

It brought up the 'documents and settings\jonnathan etc' folder with the offending file in it. And nothing sad.gif

Was I supposed to do something when this folder appeared?

It might be easier if you create a folder in C root, eg C:\Delete , drag the file there and as Dash said type in command prompt c:\unzipped\zap "C:\Delete\file.old"

you can unlock the file with another program "KillBox" or "UnLocker" (these programs haven't helped me in my case either sad.gif )

Grandpa, when you drag a file into a command prompt, it automatically expands the full path of the file, including quotes where necessary.

Dappy, once you drag the file in, you have to left-click in the command prompt afterwards to restore focus to the DOS box, and then click return to execute the command. If it then moves on to a new prompt without moaning, then the file has been successfully deleted.

SUCCESS



bowdown.gif bowdown.gif You really are Just Too Good.

File Zapper worked. rock.gif

Many, many thanks from me and the owner of the machine.


I have rebooted the machine and checked it hasn't put itself back in the windows directory, but no sign of it.

1. Open a command prompt
2. Type c:\utils\zap [the file you want to zap], e.g: c:\utils\zap c:\windows\system.exe

Hey just doing my uncles computer as had loads of Symantec pop ups. AVG picked up Trojan Horse Generic.mqr, have read the thread on it and am having the same problem with the C:\recover bit. Have downloaded this zapper and extracted the files but when i click on the program to open it...it won't open!

Any advice? Required urgently.

Thankyou in advance!
