We believe that if you are here now and reading this publication, then you are currently experiencing hardships with your PC. Either you noticed some wrongly behavior coming from your device or have already found the malware and want to remove it, but either way you are looking for and urgently need solution to the issue. This article is dedicated on showing you how to remove the Setup Wizard Virus from your computer and how to protect your personal information and your stored files for the future.

Tthe Setup Wizard Virus is a dangerous and sticky-tricky virus. People often think that it is harmless, but let’s face it: there is no innocent virus. the Setup Wizard Virus is quite harmful and it could cause major catastrophes to your PC and dis-likable things to your valuable information.

The Setup Wizard Virus can get installed on your device via many different ways. One way is through e-mail attachments. Hackers like to distribute the malware through regular, i.e, daily e-mail attachments. It is important to pay close attention to what you are clicking on to open and downloading. If you end up opening a document that has been sent to you and you’re too lazy to scan it, you may just open the door wide for a malware to enter your system–always be careful! Even if you only desire to open without saving it, you should always scan it because it may still bring a malware to your PC.

The Setup Wizard Virus could be sitting in one of the many junk e-mails you receive daily or go directly to your Spam folder. Most of us forget about the spam mail and trashy letters stay there for months. If you want to protect your computer, it is a good idea to create a habit of cleaning the spam mail as often as possible. Almost all e-mail providers have great filter settings you could use so that you are in control of what gets into your inbox and from there in your system and what does not.

The Setup Wizard Virus could also, unfortunately, come from your best friend! What kind of a best friend is one who sends you viruses,right?  Well, hackers are pretty smart folks and they know who you communicate with and even which letters you tend to prioritize. They can access your contact book if you haven’t set the settings in a secure way and hack your friends’ e-mail account(s), and spread malware through there. BE CAREFUL!

The Setup Wizard Virus is often installed via software bundling, which works similarly to the e-mail attachments. If you use the automated framework for downloading files of the internet, it is more likely that you will get the virus that way. When you are loading and saving a program, file, document, music, video, pictures, etc. off a free website with the default settings you expose yourself to danger. BECAUSE the automated settings don’t give you the needed security. It is extremely important that you use the advanced download functions. Thus,  you will have control of what gets saved or simply opened on your computer and what not. It is also advisable that you work on case-per-case basis and adjust the settings accordingly,i.e, depending on the files you are loading and their original source.

You might be surprised to learn that this specific type of a virus likes Chrome the most. It has to do a lot with its manufactured settings. Mozilla Firefox appears to be little better, but at the end of the day it is not really because if, for example, you want to watch a video you will have to get a flash through a third party, which puts your financial information on a possible threat. Internet Explorer–the aged browser–lacks proper care and that makes it an easy target.

Follow the removal guide! We have divided the instructions into different sections, so even if IT is not your passion it should not be a problem to uninstall the virus.

    • Hi Vanja,
      these IPs are fine. We researched these IPs and we found out that they are legit. Contact us if you need further assistance.

  • Hi Azelgt,
    can you be more specific? What exactly are you trying to get rid of? What are these files you are showing us?

    • Hi alaa,
      these IPs are fine. We researched them and they turned out to be legit. Keep us posted if you need further assistance.

  • Hi Ayaz,
    at this point i suggest to you to download our software from one of our banners above. SpyHunter will locate the infected files and show you the location. You have to delete them manually. If you have any other issues, contact us we will help you.

  • Hi christian,
    did you manage to complete the steps above under Safe Mode ? Keep us posted if you have further issues.

  • Hello, Trotex, now that you have found the unwanted IP addresses, what you should do is delete them and then save the changes made to the hosts file.

  • Hello, ananya, now simply delete those IP’s and save the hosts file so that the changes you’ve just made are implemented.

    • Hello, upendra, you must delet those IP’s. After you remove them, save the hosts file so that the changes can be implemented.

    • Hello, ehab. To save the changes to your hosts file, you will need to open it with administrator privilages. Does the account you are currently using on your PC have administrator rights?

  • You must open the Hosts file via an account that has Asministrator rights or else you won’t be able to delete them and save the changes. If you do not know how to open the Hosts file with Administrator privileges, write to us in the comments and we will guide you.

  • To open the Hosts file with Administrator priveleges, first, go to your start menu and type “Notepad”. Right-click on the first result and then select Run as Administrator. Once Notepad opens, click on “File” and select “Open”. Then follow this path: C:WindowsSystem32 and once you get there, open the Hosts file. After this, you will have the permission to delete the IP’s and save the changes. If you need any further assistance, write to us in the comments and we will aid you.

  • Under my local host in my hosts log… down.baidu2016. com 123.sogou. com http://www.czzsyzgm. com http://www.czzsyzxl. com union.baidu2019. com down.baidu2016. com 123.sogou. com http://www.czzsyzgm. com http://www.czzsyzxl. com union.baidu2019. com down.baidu2016. com 123.sogou. com http://www.czzsyzgm. com http://www.czzsyzxl. com union.baidu2019. com

    I did everything but this step, what do I do with this step? Notepad is still open. Are these Browsec VPN Services from google chrome?

    • No, those IP addresses must be deleted. They are coming from the unwanted program and must be removed. Make sure to save the Hosts file after you’ve deleted them.

      • Where do I save Hosts to after I delete them? It asks whether I click save or save as. And then it tells me I need administrative assistance even though I’m on the Administrative account, the only account on my computer, and asks if I would like to save in documents instead.

        • In that case, here is what you need to do: Open your Start Menu and type “notepad %windir%/system32/Drivers/etc/hosts” but instead of left-clicking on the first icon, this time right-click on it and then select Run as Administrator. Now you should have the ability to change the document and save the changes. Delete the IP’s and save it with “Save” and not with “Save As”. You can later tell us in the comments if that worked for you.

  • Hey, down.baidu2016. com 123.sogou. com http://www.czzsyzgm. com http://www.czzsyzxl. com union.baidu2019. com

    I found these IPs and i tried to delete these IPs, but i couldn’t find the file. when i open notepad as administrator and go to C:WindowsSystem32 then which file/folder i have to open? please help me. Thanks

    • To make it easier for you, simply open your Start Menu and copy-paste the following line in the search field: notepad %windir%/system32/Drivers/etc/hosts . Right-click on the first result and then choose Run as Administrator. You will now be able to delete the IP’s and save the changes to the file. Tell us if that worked after you try it. If you nee any further assistance, we will make sure to help you.

  • Can you give us a screenshot of that? We assume that is is some kind of an unwanted browser extension leftover but we cannot say for sure so you’d better send us a screenshot of it.

  • Actually, this is usually not a sign of some unwnated program on yout PC. The question is, when does this pop-up appear? Is it the moment you start your browser or when you try to go to Facebook? Also, have you changed anything in your Registry Editor?

  • We are happy to have aided you in solving your pdoblem. If you ever happen to run into difficulty again with some unwanted software, we are here to help you!

  • Restore points are very useful. However, note that they are usually not very effective when it comes to removing unwnted software. They need to be used in conjunction with other methods as the ones presented in our guide in order to truly be helpful.

  • As you noted yourself, it does not semto be coming from any of your browser extensions. Here is what we advise you to do: Open your Start Menu and type “cmd”. Right-click on the first icon and select Run as Administrator. In the window that opens, type the following command “netsh winsock reset” and then hit Enter. After the command is executed, try opening your browser again and see if the problem is gone. If the pop-up is still there, inform us in the comments and we will tell you what to do next.

    • I’m 910 minutes in on a TrendMicro Housecall scan and it said it has found 2 threats, it’s at 85% complete, so once that is done, I will do what you just told me to.

      Also, you are right, it isn’t my extensions as I removed them all and the problem persisted. I’ll add them back when I’m done.

      But yes, as soon as Trend Micro is done, I will do that and respond again. Once again, thank you for your kind help.

    • Actually, I can already tell that the problem is gone without restarting my PC or browser. This is amazing. You are an impeccable human being. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. *gasp* Back to life.

      • We are very glad that we have helped you resolve your problem! Thank you for the kind words. If you ever run into problem again, know that we are here to provide you with our aid.

  • As it seems, those IP addresses are almost certainly coming from the undesirable software. Be sure to remove them and save the changes afterwards.

  • Can you send us a screenshot? Is ” thislineskipsanyemptylines” what’s written in your hosts line?

  • Were there any shady IP addresses in the Hosts file or any suspicious keys when you checked the Registry Editor?
