It spreads through removable storage devices. Can someone out there please give a thoroughly researched & detailed synthesis of this malware & step by step hands-on removal
skypee is malware ( it's not very dangerous. but it create shortcuts and slow down your pc. some low level AV programs not detect it. 1st stop AutoIt3.exe from taskmanger. then unhide all system and hidden files and folders. delete c:\skypee folder and c:\googleupdate folder and delete shortcuts in pen drives..
Skypee can replicate to pendrive. It is an UN wanted program which can give access to your system via backdoor script generater autoit. Every infected system by skypee contains folder named skypee on each of drive.and a folder Google in c drive which contains required script automation tool autoit to intrude external.

Best practices for resolving skypee issues

The following programs have also been shown useful for a deeper analysis: ASecurity Task Manager examines the active skypee process on your computer and clearly tells you what it is doing. Malwarebytes' well-known Banti-malware tool tells you if the skypee.exe on your computer displays annoying ads, slowing it down. This type of unwanted adware program is not considered by some antivirus software to be a virus and is therefore not marked for cleanup.

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding PC trouble. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using 1cleanmgr and 2sfc /scannow, 3uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using 4msconfig) and enabling Windows' 5Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the 6resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the 7DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
