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.

This has been driving me MAD… hunting, searching, trying this that and the other thing… worried that this nasty thing was going to be the end of my circa 2000, Windows ME computer…
NOW, I can hobble on a little longer
by the way, WHAT EXACTLY does this nasty worm actually accomplish/do, other than p’sing me off??
kichik, if you know, please email me

[…] a combination of manual and automatic techniques. The last traces seem to be gone now, thanks to NSIS Media Remover and several uninstalls and re-installs of Firefox to deal with an infected “chrome” […]

Thanks for the removal tool. Seems to have worked great. Pop-ups have stopped. Just FYI to all, I got infected by installing the Foxie browser extension for Internet Explorer.
Thanks a lot your removal tool worked!
One question though, will it work with vista business premium? I’m sceptic to use it without checking it with you. Thanks again in advance.
Never tested it on Vista, but there’s no reason it shouldn’t work. And if it doesn’t no harm done, you just get to keep the gem we have all come to know and love.
Thanks, for the effort..
those pop-up advertise really stress me out.
Thank you so much for this.
