  • Step 2: Disconnect your PC from the Internet

    Prevent the malware from leaking or spreading your personal data. Keylogger usually uses the Internet to transfer all possible and important information you have. Some Keyloggers are not so “Active” and they can simply disable some Windows features and options. To disconnect your PC from the Internet you need to plug-off LAN cable (if you use LAN connection) or to turn of the Wi-Fi module (if you use Wi-Fi Internet connection). Most of (not 100%) Keyloggers can not access Wi-Fi module preferences. Turning off the Internet will disable Legmir.aqx from transferring any data from your PC.

  • Step 3: Enter the safe mode.

    The next step is very important in removing Legmir.aqx. After turning off the Internet and disabling Legmir.aqx process you will need to reboot your PC in so-called Safe Mode. Safe Mode is a Windows mode which allows you to start the System using only important applications and services. Safe Mode does not usually allow Legmir.aqx to load when the system boots (!!!but exceptions can appear!!!). Choose Restart in Windows Start menu and wait until the screen turns off.

    After that you have to follow the next instructions according to the versions of Microsoft Windows you use:

      Windows XP:
    1. Press the F8 key repeatedly when the first screen appears.

    2. Select Safe Mode from Windows Advanced Options Menu and press ENTER.

      Windows Vista, 7:
    1. Press the F8 key repeatedly when the first screen appears.

    2. Use the arrow keys from Windows Advanced Options Menu in order to select Safe Mode and press ENTER.

    1. Press and hold the Shift button when left-clicking the Restart button on Windows log-on screen.

    2. Select Safe Mode from Windows Troubleshooting boot screen and press ENTER.

  • Step 4: Removing virus files

    Having booted your PC in Safe mode you have to start cleaning your PC manually by deleting every file associated with Legmir.aqx one by one. Here is the list of all files associated with Legmir.aqx. Delete all files listed below using the Shift+Delete buttons combination.
