Please follow these steps to Remove Virus using Command Promt:

Click the "Start" menu and type "CMD" into the "Run" box and click "OK."

Select the drive that is infected with the virus. If you are not sure which drive is infected, start with the "C:" drive. Type in "C:" and press "Enter" to access this drive.

Type the following into the command prompt box: - s - h *. * /s /d and press "Enter." This will bring up any suspicious files located on the drive. Open the suspicious file.

Look for a file that contains a ".exe" file and a file titled "autorun.inf." If you find these two files, you have found the tainted file. Make sure to write down the name of the program where the file is located.

Rename the "autorun.inf" so you can access the drive later without activating the virus. Type: rename autorun.inf as virusfile and close out of the "Command" prompt box.

Double-click the "My Computer" icon and select the drive that has the infected file. Find the program that contains the infected file.

Right-click on the program and choose "Open."

Right-click on the file you renamed "virusfile" and choose "Delete."

Right-click on the ".exe" file and choose "Delete." You have now removed the virus from your computer's hard drive.

i am using a Transcend 8GB USB Pend Driver. when i scanned it, it showed me that, find "rahulvirusprotection.vbe". Hence i delete it immediately. After deleting the virus, i tried to access the pen driver. But shows that, "Can not find script file "G:\Rahul'sVirusprotection.vbe". Kindly help me to resolve this problem asap. Thanks in advance...


It is virus which uses autorun feature of the removable devices such as USB Pen Drive. These type of viruses usually have two files. (a) autorun.inf and (b) the executable (.exe) or script file. Some Antivirus programs delete the exe file but the autorun files remains. In your case, the exe file (rahul's virus protection.vbe) has been removed but the autorun entry is there, which is run everytime you try to access your pen drive. First, plug-in the drive and DONT OPEN IT. Open 'My Computer' , right click the pen drive and choose explore. (This would by-pass the autorun feature).

Download Flash Disinfector and save it to your desktop. Double-click Flash Disinfector.exe to run it and follow any prompts that may appear. The utility may ask you to insert your flash drive. Please do so and allow the utility to clean up those drives as well. Wait until it has finished scanning and then exit the program.
Reboot your computer when done.

(Flash_Disinfector will remove any autorun.inf files, create a hidden folder named autorun.inf in each partition and every USB drive plugged in when you ran it. Don't delete this folder. It will help protect your drives from future infection)


Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Good Luck!
Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help!

ABOUT MY 2GB PEN DRIVE WARRANTY


Here's what you should do. actually I prefer using DOS to do this. ok, so fire up the DOS and goto C:
this virus actually put two files on each partition that It will infect, autorun.inf and the .vbs file which contains the code of the virus. currently the attributes of these two files are hidden, read-only and system. so using attrib command, type:
attrib -h -r -s autorun.inf
attrib -h -r -s m*.vbs
del m*.vbs
del auto*.inf

also look for the windows folder and look for the other .vbs file of the virus and change its attribute.

not yet done.

activate your task manager(ctrl-alt-del) and look for wscript.exe, you should end this task.

take not you must do this in every partition or flashdisk that have been infected. Take note you should also check the registry since this virus append it's .vbs to the [Run] field of the registry and also it alters the Title of your Internet Explorer to Hacked by Godzilla.

after your done, you need to reboot your system.
