This page aims to help you remove Redaman Malware. Our removal instructions work for every version of Windows.

Pretty much everybody who has ever used a computer must have heard about the so-called Trojan Horse viruses and there is a good reason behind this. The Trojan Horse malware category represents one of the nastiest types of malicious and dangerous programs out there and getting your machine infected by one such virus can cause a lot of different issues (some of which might even be irreversible!). Luckily, if you have a good understanding of how those infections operate, what their most usual methods of distribution are and what steps you might need to undertake in order to remove a potential Trojan Horse virus from your PC, you should be able to keep your machine protected against Trojans in the majority of cases.

How such a virus might come to your PC

There are quite a lot of ways in which a given computer can get infected by a virus of the Trojan Horse category. Some common techniques used to distribute such viruses are the spam messages you could receive in your e-mail or on some of your social media accounts, different misleading Internet requests and ads that prompt you to click on them, pirated programs and other forms of illegally distributed software could also be used as carriers for threats of the Trojan Horse category. The possibilities are endless. Those above were only some of the more common methods of spreading Trojan Horses.

One recently reported Trojan is the so-called Redaman infection and a lot of users seem to have already fallen prey to this cyber threat. Again, there are likely multiple ways you could land this virus and if you are one of its many victim, you might find the following article down below quite useful. Take a look at it and follow the instructions to remove Redaman:

After you open their folder, end the processes that are infected, then delete their folders. 

Note: If you are sure something is part of the infection – delete it, even if the scanner doesn’t flag it. No anti-virus program can detect all infections. 

Step3

Hold together the Start Key and R. Type appwiz.cpl –> OK.

You are now in the Control Panel. Look for suspicious entries. Uninstall it/them. If you see a screen like this when you click Uninstall, choose NO:

Step4

Type msconfig in the search field and hit enter. A window will pop-up:

msconfig_opt

Startup —> Uncheck entries that have “Unknown” as Manufacturer or otherwise look suspicious.

  • Remember this step – if you have reason to believe a bigger threat (like ransomware) is on your PC, check everything here.

Hold the Start Key and R –  copy + paste the following and click OK:

notepad %windir%/system32/Drivers/etc/hosts

A new file will open. If you are hacked, there will be a bunch of other IPs connected to you at the bottom. Look at the image below:

hosts_opt (1)

If there are suspicious IPs below “Localhost” – write to us in the comments.

Step5

Type Regedit in the windows search field and press Enter.

Once inside, press CTRL and F together and type the virus’s Name. Right click and delete any entries you find with a similar name. If they don’t show up this way, go manually to these directories and delete/uninstall them:

  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER—-Software—–Random Directory. It could be any one of them – ask us if you can’t discern which ones are malicious.
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER—-Software—Microsoft—-Windows—CurrentVersion—Run– Random
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER—-Software—Microsoft—Internet Explorer—-Main—- Random

It is very important that you act quickly and do not waste any time if you suspect that a threat like Redaman might have sneaked inside your computer system. Those threats can be really damaging and if allowed to remain inside the computer for any extended periods of time, the damage they could cause may be irreparable. Here are some examples of the possible ways in which malicious programs the likes of Redaman could be used to cause its harm:

  • Damaging the system and corrupting important data on your PC. This is one of the most frequent uses of virus programs of the Trojan category.
  • Blocking your antivirus and allowing other threats like Ransomware, Spyware, Worms, etc. to silently sneak inside the computer and operate without getting detected.
  • Spying on you and gathering sensitive information about your private and/or about your professional life in order to later use the gathered data for blackmailing purposes.
  • Stealing money from your online bank accounts after gaining unauthorized access to them.
  • Controlling the processes in your PC system and using the machine for different criminal activities like DDoS attacks and distribution of spam to other computers.

Many other examples can be given here but if there’s one thing you have to take away from this short list of possible Trojan Horse uses, it should be that Redaman must be immediately removed as soon as you find out about its presence on your computer.
