SOLVE msa.exe problem in Task Manger Windows

October 23, 2009 | In: Windows

Hi guys. You might have come across the issue with the process msa.exe in your task manager.  Yep it is malicious process.

Lets look how to remove it.

Open Task Manager. Find exactly “msa.exe” from the “processes” tab
Start –> Search
Then select “All files and folders”
Make a search called “msa.exe” (all harddrives) When found, stop the search.

Now kill the process in the task manager named msa.exe(keep mouse on it and right click kill process tree)
Now in the search window, delete the msa.exe found using Shift + delete so that it won’t go to your recycle bin.

Now do this

Start > Run > Type regedit.exe

Navigate to

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\AntiVirus
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MSA
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.key
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
 “Antivirus”
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run 
“Antivirus”

Remove MS Antivirus Registry Values from all of the above locations.

Reboot your system… thats all.
