How to remove JARGON.VBS

Published on October 1st, 2009 | by sylv3rblade


I’ve encountered this virus/malware the other day and while it was fairly easy to remove, I thought it would be useful to provide instructions on how to remove jargon.vbs. A quick search on GOOG turned out several useless results (okay, a lot of useless results) so I thought of doing my part to help.

Here’s how you can remove JARGON.VBS from your computer and your infected flash drives.

  • Download: Flash Disinfector | Mirror
  • Run the Flash_Disinfector.exe. Explorer will close (your desktop will disappear leaving you with windows of currently running programs) and restart. This will have stopped the script.
  • Now you’ll have to delete the malware files so your system won’t get infected again, to do this you need to display hidden files.
    • Open My Computer.
    • Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
    • Select the View Tab.
    • Under the Hidden files and folders heading unselect Do not show hidden files and folders.
    • Browse your flash drive (DON’T CLICK AUTOPLAY or you’ll run the malware again) and remove the following files:
    • autorun.inf

      Repeat this step for all infected drives. 

    • Go to C:/Windows and delete
    • jargon.vbs
  • Congratulations, you’ve removed that annoying malware

    Can I do the procedure without plugging in a flashdrive? The problem mainly lies on the computer.

    I have an Ibook G4, I got this virus from an infected UBS stick. I am gathering the process might be different for disinfecting a mac. Could you or someone tell me what to do? This is my first virus in the whole time I have had it which is five years šŸ™

    Hi! It did remove the jargon.vbs from my pc but now i’m getting a windows script host error that says “cannot find C:\Windows\jargon.vbs” during start up. How can I fix this error? How can I totally remove this kind of error without having to tinker with the msconfig? Thanks a lot.

  8. Bob says:

    go to run, type msconfig; you get advanced startup options in that dialog, especially in the startup tab – you can pick exactly what runs on startup there.

    Flash Disinfector did not work for me. what i did is i open the registry editor then browse on the following keys.

    – HKEY_Local_Machine\Micorsoft\windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    you will see there a registry key named “auToMe”.
    delete it. then open the following:
    – My Computer\Tools(on the menu)\Folder Options\View Tab
    – check the Show Hidden Files and uncheck the Hide Protected System Files

    then open My Computer\C:\Windwos
    – look for the jargon file then delete it.

    for infected Flash Drives, do the following after inserting your Flash Drive’s on the USB port:
    – open run
    – type cmd the press enter
    – type the directory path of the flash drive (example: E:) then enter
    – type this: dir /a:h
    – if you see th following:
    – jargon.vbs
    – Autorun.inf
    – delete this files by typing this:
    – del /f/a jargon.vbs
    – del /f/a autorun.inf
    – remove your flash drive without safety remove. then plug it in again. repeat the steps of openning thew command prompt and typing the “dir/a:h” command. i hope this will help you guys. tnx

  23. tom dela cruz says:

    I also followed your step but after run the disinfentor the windows says Windows cannot find ‘nircmd’. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the star button, and then click search. So i tried to search the said file but no result for this file. My disinfector was failed what should i do?
