I still have no idea on what kind of Trojan or Virus is this Memz. It almost has complete control on my Windows operating system. I can see it running on the process, utilizing so much memory resources. Trying to kill the Memz process is impossible. I cannot end Memz from task manager.
Running virus scan does not find the virus. It seems that computer is clean after executing a thorough anti-virus scan. Memz could be hiding or just cannot detect by security applications.
Searching the internet only shows little information. MemZ.exe in particular is identified by VirusTotal with 33 detection ratio. Other information that can lead to virus location and registry entries are the following:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\AppID\<random>.exe = msvunkern.dll
C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\MEMZ.exe
C:\Program Files (x86)\MEMZ\
Hope someone can help me remove Memz virus. Running AVG scans is helpless with this issue. Deleting the files and registry entries manually is also not effective in getting rid of the malware. I am willing to try any scanners and tools you may suggest to get rid of Memz will be highly appreciated.August 3, 2016 at 3:42 am #601MFixerGuest
Memz Virus Removal – Self Help Guide
For easy and free removal of Memz, we suggest that you carry out the following instructions. We will use only free and effective malware removal tools on this procedure.
1. Download the following Memz removal tools
Once downloaded, install the programs using default configuration. No need to change on the current settings. Updating may be necessary after the installation.
2. Reboot computer in safe mode
Rebooting the computer in Windows Safe Mode reduces the effectiveness of Memz and other malware. Most malware and virus do not function fully while in Safe Mode. You may also scan the PC on normal boot-up; hence, we may not guarantee the efficiency of virus removal.

– After the scan, select all identified threats and click on Remove Selected button
– If it prompts you that computer needs to be restarted, please select No
– Close Malwarebytes Anti-malware program
4. Run another scan using AdwCleaner
– Open AdwCleaner.
– Once opened, click on Scan button to search for malicious applications including Memz.
– To remove Memz including all detected adware and malware, click on the Clean button.

– Click OK to restart the computer.
After restarting the computer, you may run additional virus scanner if anti-virus is installed.September 16, 2016 at 4:20 pm #669MasterCrkzaGuest
Seems you have somehow got Leurak’s MEMZ Trojan Suddenly released into the wild somehow. That wasn’t supposed to happen. Just be careful though, It will Overwrite your windows Boot sector with a cute Nyan Cat screen. also this trojan was supposed to just be featured in Danooct1’s Viewer-made Malware series, and Leurak made it Open source too. I think that’s why it was out in the wild. So You Can’t Reboot.November 23, 2016 at 2:03 pm #788WasteGuest
So if you can view your tasks then somehow the virus hasn’t obliterated the first 64KB of vital files your OS needs, meaning that there is a very good chance of saving the computer.
Bear in mind that this virus was made for entertainment purposes and was NOT meant to be distributed for the suffering of others.
Try hard-resetting the computer or booting in safe-mode.
If this doesn’t work try contacting your Operating System’s producer support-line and see if they are able to help in any way (this is almost certain).
I hope you are able to fix the issue.November 30, 2016 at 7:27 pm #791devlinGuest
Ok when you press the program it clearly says it is a virus and gives you a chance to say no I do not want to activate a virus, the memz virus is only for fun since it says they will not be held responsible for your now probably nyan cat computer so you cant sue the people who made it so your screwedFebruary 28, 2017 at 2:09 pm #828MDGuest
This “virus” can be cured my a MBR restoration. It does not remove any files from your computer, only replaces Windows booting with a cute nyan cat picture.May 2, 2017 at 10:41 pm #862tomthebombGuest

When you have memz, make recovery media where you will boot after restarting the computer. Here are the steps of fixing your PC.
1. Boot into the recovery media
2. Stop the startup repair
3. Go into advanced options
4. Use the command prompt (put admin details if requested)
5. Type the following commands (without quotes) “bootrec /fixmbr” “bootec /fixboot”
6. Now do a startup repair
7. Once completed, restart your PC.

Memz only ruins anything when you tell it to. I don’t see the problem.May 2, 2019 at 8:06 pm #1124LukeGuest
Memez virus isn’t actually a “virus”. It is, in technical terms, a completely safe piece of download able software. You can even download the “virus” but not enable it. Like system 32, it is completely safe as long as you don’t touch, edit, rename and so on. You may need to factory reset your PC. That is how I got rid of the “virus”. I’m no computer expert, but I wouldn’t recommend downloading it unless you have the knowledge and the solution for the software.
Hope I helped?
Try a factory reset if all else is unsuccessful.
