Warning...!!! Do not install Riyo Codec...


You may get across some video files which do not play and have a accompanying text file which asks you install Riyo Codecs and a link to the same.

Do not install this Riyo Codec. Its actually some sort of Malware which completely messes up your registry and services.


If you have already installed it without knowing it. Then just follow the steps given here.

Also just to add, those video files are also part of ths SCAM, they are just junk files named to look like video files by using avi as extension.

Re: Warning...!!! Do not install Riyo Codec...

Your warning came a bit too late for me I installed the riyo codec few months back and yes, its not just malware but also a trojan carrier. It cariiers the zlob dns changer trojan which randomly hijacks the google results and also the actual urls. doesn't create much of a problem, as the tools do a clean removal of trojan but yeah, its a headache. And on the top of this the video file as lord nemesis rightly stated was a part of scam. So 700mb download went a waste.
