If that doesn't work (infact even if it does), you should run malwarebytes and install Avira or Nod32 as your antivirus.

Computer may be hacked or have a virus


Most peoples computers are filled with viruses and trojans. I delete the problem files manually using spynomore to point the way (free to use pay to remove) I unhide hidden folders and system files and use the registry to remove the bad stuff. Sometimes a severe rootkit is too much to remove and it requires a reinstall of windows, that is why i use unhackme and spynomore so that i know the moment i am infected and can do a system restore if necessary. But system restores only go back about 5 or 6 days. It may be too late if you have a rootkit already. To have me teamview you to remove your trojans for free contact me at mikadot at hotmail dot com you'll need to install teamviewer to do that I would need the ID and password

I'm Faced a Problem of .exe Virus..I need A help


First of all we need to know what the name of the virus is. Different viruses call for different removal procedures. If you do not know then my suggestion would be to download the FREE version of MBAM. www,malwarebytes.org and let it run a quick scan to see if it can remove it. If it finds and removes the virus then the next step would be to run a full scan on the computer (which takes a lot of time depending on how much studd is on your drive.) After that if you do not already have an anti-virus running on your computer, I would suggest going to Microsoft and downloading microsoft security essentials. This is a FREE full version anti-virus from microsoft and it works very well.

Sandisk cruzer 8gb not recognised on any computer. how can i retrieve my files


I think it could be due to virus activity. Due to virus, there are few problem makes,such as the contents of the drive will be hidden, that's why user can't see or the files and the space available for use is less than the capacity and also can not open the drive or can not delete any file.

Your pc already affected by virus ,you will need another pc to put the pen drive.then you will format the usb drive.Actually an auto-run program is running in your pc you can manually remove the virus .follow the instruction.
http://amiworks.co.in/talk/how-to-remove-new-folderexe-or-regsvrexr-or-autoruninf-virus/

TO KNOW HOW
It is suggested that go to FOLDER OPTIONS - and select SHOW HIDDEN FILES. It may show the hidden files. If can not show hidden file (tools >folder option >view> check on show hidden file>check off hide protected and check off hide extension) now can see all hidden file in c drive. If not think......
For ensure again
run >type> msconfig > hit can not open ms config if virus effected
run > type> regedit>hit>can not open registry if virus effected
run > type >gpedit.msc>hit can not open group edit policy if virus effected

If you don't have any vital data on the drive, just format it in another pc.Please note, before insert the
Pen drive .Go to run command from start menu OR Press Win key+R and type gpedit.msc and hit >Usser configuration>system>turn off auto play >eneble >use down arrow key seclect all drive >apply >ok. Control panel>administrative tools >service>select any word in right side and pres s for select Shell Hardware Detection> d -click >use down arrow key >disable >start.And now can insert pen drive and format. Hope this would fix the issue and you would be able to enjoy the full capacity of the disk. Try to be sure follow these.

you should fully scan by f-secure boo-table cd or any another anti-virus boo-table cd .Just insert the disk and restart.
Follow bellow the download link.

The autorun file in the drive has been modified. A virus should have done that and in turn your anitvirus must have found and removed the virus. Hence windows is now trying to find the missing application. You can revert this by either removing the autorun file in the root folder, or by modifying it to your liking. If you need further assistance, comment back.

Removal of boot.com virus from external hard drive and USB Stick


Silakan baca di >sini<
Desi Vibes

"boot.com" is a virus which attacks the hard drives & the hard drives could not be opened by double clicking. In hard drives after enabling viewing hidden file u can see some "autorun" file & a file named "boot.com" which cannot be removed just by deleting.

Here’s the REAL way to clean this off your system. You should do these steps after a fresh reboot in safe mode.
1) Navigate to the problem drive(s) via the Explore option.
2) Click on TOOLS -> FOLDER OPTIONS
3) Click the button which says ‘Show hidden files and folders.
4) UNCHECK the following boxes:
Hide extensions for known file types
Hide protected operrating system files
5) Find and delete the autorun.ini file and the resycled folder on the root directory of all affected drives.
6) Check “c:\windows\system32\dllcache” for boot.com file and delete it if present.
7) Check “c:\windows\prefetch” for boot.com file and delete if present.
8) Delete all files from c:\windows\temp
(Some files may not delete, that’s ok, they’re in use by the system and not virus files.)
9) Delete all files from c:\Documents and Settings\[USER PROFILE]\Local Settings\Temp
(Again, a couple files may not delete, don’t worry.)
10) Run Regedit
11) Make sure you are at the very first entry of the registry hive. (My Computer should be hilighted) then click EDIT -> FIND
12) Search for “boot.com”. If it finds an entry, delete it. Keep hitting F3 until you’ve deleted all instances of boot.com in the entire registry.
13) Scroll the left column back up to the top and hilight the My Computer again at the top of the registry hive.
14) Click Edit -> Find again and search for ‘resycled’ and repeat as in step 13, deleting the entries as it finds them.
15) Close registry editor and try opening the infected drives. They should work now.
Worked for me at least.
