Hello install the program from here:

http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/

And reboot after the install is done.
The program will kill the autorun file, when you boot again.

This is also the best free malware/trojan remover available !!!!

Install also a better free antivirus program like this:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/security-essentials-download

Please uninstall any old antivirus program, before you install
Microsoft Security Essentials.
Mse it`s not useing so much of the pc`s memory to operate.

Make a full scan for all your harddrives.

Your windows version must be valid, to use Microsoft Security Essentials .

You might have to scan for virus, in failsafe mode by pressing F8, while the pc boots.

Good luck

if you computer is very infected and you are not able to install the 2 antivirus i told, then do it on
another computer which is not infected. Then you will have to remove your hard disk from your computer and place it in the other one and do the scanning.
the USB antivirus is very useful you can install it in any computer you have it will protect you from autorun. it scan all usb and flash card also.

Avast also is a good antivirus which you can use.

i also suggest you to backup all your files, document, photos,etc.. after scanning. cause sometime you might get some error from windows. so backup and reinstall a fresh windows.

dont forget to reinstall the USB antivirus after.

GOODLUCK

C:application cannot run in win32 mode


I've ran across with this virus called UST Funny Scandal. Its actually a worm virus that spreads immediately on all local drives and it originated somewhere in Asia.

When using YM, it actually sends automatically to all your friends this certain virus program via PMs. And the behavior of your messenger suddenly becomes erratic.

NOD32 could actually help but for sometime after removing the pesky "autorun.inf" which is hidden, eventually your drive won't work the same as it was before.

Best solution for this is to download a program called NOOB Killer and run it. After running it restart your computer and you'll be fine.

Also, turn-off your autoplay so whenever you plug a flash drive infected with a virus it won't run automatically.

To turnoff autolplay:

Run the RUN Command and then type gpedit.msc ( .msc stands for Microsoft Console). After running it, click the Administrative Templates and then click the System folder on the right pane look for "Turn Off Autoplay" and double-click it. Click the radio-button "enabled" and from the drop-down list click "all drives" and click apply and ok and close the gpeditor.


Enjoy. =))

My D & E drive is not opening on double click.


hey gaurav, this problem happens only when there's a virus on the drive. Use Avast antivirus to delete all **** out.

you get it for free on avast.com and once you register on the site, they send you the serial to your mailbox.

Just for free doesn't mean that its weak, or something.

I've tried norton, mcafee, and the like....and all have failed in front of Avast!

And no, i'm not advertising here...All major tech houses recommend it (Digit, Chip magazines in india).
