Fully Remove Ludashi 5.0 Program in Windows

Users have complained about various online security forums that they have experienced issues with the software called Ludashi.

Ludashi 5.0 – Spread

The software can be found on their official website ludashi(dot)com. However, we do not forget the possibility that it may use bundling with other programs downloaded usually from:

  • Torrent sites
  • Software providing third-party sites.
  • Software downloaded from unknown sources.

Bundling applications have recently become a very popular marketing tool that is very aggressive and may slither third-party applications, such as Ludashi that you did not even know about. Bundled software is usually included in third-party applications’ setups. Here is an example picture of how you may have missed Ludashi 5.0 while installing free software:

Furthermore, Ludashi and its bundled application called Funshion ran several processes in Windows Task Manager, some of which were even active while the software appeared not to be, which is rather intrusive.

Experts believe that this software may systematically collect information from the computer it is installed on via tracking technologies, for example:

  • LSOs(Local Shared Objects) or Flash Cookies.
  • Session Cookies.
  • Tracking Cookies.
  • Pixels.
  • Beacons.
  • Tags.

Not only this, but the application also has some kind of bundled program for online multimedia entertainment:

Besides all of those, Ludashi pops up intrusively on your screen displaying various news. The pop-up can be removed fairly easily but is extremely annoying.

Besides all of those “features” of the program, we have to note that the software can not be uninstalled. And what is worse it does not even display any notification. The uninstaller simply closes after you click on the uninstall button.

Similar behavior is characteristic of rogue software and programs such as the Chinese messenger Tencent QQ.

    Just locate to Program Files and find the folder named LuDaShi, there is an uninstaller for the program.

    • No my friend, I am affraid that this nasty virus also attacks the registry entries heavily. As you see above, I have personally tested it on a Virtual Drive and besides manually removing every object including the many modified registry entries on the affected computer. So yeah, uninstalling, removing, the damn thing reappears, i have already tested it and tried that and I GUARANTEE simple shift+del wont cut it for ya. You need to either scan this thing with something that can locate everything or perform the following steps:

      1. Use deletion software like Delete Doctor to manually remove all of the files.
      2. Use a Registry cleaning script like the one in the link below to fix your registry entries, after you have manually found and deleted alll the registry entries, ofcourse.

      There are several ways to find registry entires, the main of which is to scan your computer with an anti-malware tool and get a log which has all of them and look for them manually. There are also other ways like analyzing what each component of the installer does or looking for the registries online if someone else has analyzed them, like Symantec researchers, for example, but it is time costly.
