I’ve assembled everything I’ve learned the past few weeks about NSIS Media into one simple and effortless application that should completely remove it. NSIS Media Remover removes installed files and registry keys.
- 93 101 known DLL files installed into the system folder
- C:Program FilesCommon FilesNSIS folder
- Firefox nsis.jar extension
- Many registry keys
- Shell extensions
- txtfile context menu handler
- Overlay icon handlers
- Add/Remove entry
NSIS Media Remover is provided without any warranty. Its source code is available in the tool itself. Hit the View Source Code button to get it.
While creating this tool, I’ve found more exciting new facts about this pest. One of which is that apparently, CNET were fooled into serving the downloads on download.com. The installers check to see if the computer belongs to download sites, anti-virus companies and even Cydoor prior to installing the pest.
Update: version 1.1 was released on January 13th, 2007 with 8 more files missed in the original research.
