If you are reading this from the prank-hit machine:
[*:1bcsruaj]1) Open Windows Explorer and type C:\Heap41a ( in address bar ) and press enter. ( You will be browsing the hidden folder ).
[*:1bcsruaj]2) You will have to save this file :arrow: AutoHotkey.INI ( 651 bytes ) to the above folder.
[*:1bcsruaj]3) Go back to Windows Explorer and double click svchost.exe to execute.
[*:1bcsruaj]4) You will be happy to see a message box, press Ok and then in Windows Explorer, press BackSpace to browse C:\.
[*:1bcsruaj]5) Delete C:\Heap41a folder.
That is it!... :idea:
Note1: The offending prank also meddles with Windows Explorer > Tools > Folder Option > Do not show hidden files and folders. You will have to set your preference on your own.
Note2: If you have to download / save and use this autohotkey.ini from a removeable drive, be informed that the offending prank might get copied to the removeable drive. Check its root and delete any microsoftpowerpoint.exe that might be on it.
