how to delete a list of websites in Windows 7 registry

Specs: Windows 7
Question for you: So, it seems I have Trojan viruses on my computer. I've ran AVG, security essentials, spybot search and destroy, and malware antivirus software and it's still finding viruses and I'm getting the blue screen of death, and my computer crashes. I looked in my registry and i found a giant list of websites that I've never gone to...really nasty stuff, casino sites, porn sites...If I deleted them one at a time it would take me forever as there is like a million of them. So, my question is: is there a way to delete them in bulk? I've looking at HEKY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion, then looked for unwanted .exe programs inside the Run, RunOnce and RunOnceEX and don't see anything, it's all under the "domain". Or do I have to reinstall windows?

You can also try running the process explorer and autoruns.

If you are using "SpyBot Immunize" or "SpywareBlaster" you will have lots of nasty websites in the domain area of the registry. If their values are set to 4 then these websites are being blocked. You can prove this by temporarily undoing SpyBot Immunize (or disabling them if you use SpywareBlaster).

What I'm saying is that you probably don't have a problem at all in respect of those lists - SpyBot (or whatever) is simply protecting you from going to them.

As for any virus present, try MalwareBytes freebie - it can often find and fix what AV's etc will miss.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

that's a relief! thank you. I've ran MalwareBytes a few times, and still my computer is crashing! Still getting the blue screen before it crashes. Every time a run MalwareBytes and reboot and re run it, it finds more and more viruses...

I'm no virus expert (just dropped by to point out that domains thing).

However, until someone else comes along you could get hold of this:

Probably the best idea is to tap F8 when booting and Select Safe Mode, then run Rkill followed by MalwareBytes again and your normal AV.

Always worth running CCleaner generally as it clears out a lot of junk files. Registry Cleaners only remove entries that point nowhere but they have been known to remove valid ones too. As it happens I regard CCleaner's registry tool as one of the safer ones but there is always a first time.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Further....

I had better emphasise that from your response in #4 to my explanation in #3 this is not a registry issue. Everyone who uses either of the programs mentioned in #3 will have stacks of those worrying domain entries (including me) put there to protect you and blocked by setting them to value 4.

Unless you have now fixed it you have a virus that needs expert attention.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
