This article is obsolete. Check out my lisp removal software Lisp Cleaner for a better and easier solution.
Actually acaddoc.lsp is not a virus, it is a worm depending on AutoCAD lisp routines. All it does is copying itself in every folder you open a drawing. I created a lisp routine to clean all the existences of the worm from LSP and MNL files located at the AutoCAD support folders.
Follow these steps to get rid of this worm:
- Download the routine:
The lisp file is removed. Please use Lisp Cleaner to get rid of this worm.
- Load the lisp file using
- The lisp file will run automatically and it will clean all the existences of the worm in your support folders.
- Run an antivirus or a cleaner to get rid of “acaddoc.lsp” files. Normally cleaner routine installs a simple routine in your acad20XXdoc.lsp file which automatically cleans those files but I recommend cleaning all the viruses with an anti-virus first. You can also download
del-acaddoc.bat dos batch file to clean all your drives manually. Run this batch once and it will delete all acaddoc.lsp files on your system.
NOTE: If any of the infected files in your Autocad Support folders are READONLY the cleaner won’t be able to clean those files !!
WARNING: This routine will install a routine to delete “acaddoc.lsp” files. If you somehow use acaddoc.lsp files remove the following lines from your acad20xxdoc.lsp starting with:
(setq acaddocfix t)
