The solution is so simple.

Go to command prompt and in c drive with command "c:"

When you are in C drive type "dir/ah" this command will show you all hided files in c drive.
there will a file "autorun.inf " delet it by command " del autorun.inf ".
Now restart your computer and you can access your c drive.

Please Read and answer me about UST Funny Scandal?


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. =))

Its about UST FUNNY SCANDAL VIRUS...


run an anti virus scan(when your computer is unplugged from the internet) and delete the virus. then download(with another computer) COMODO firewall pro. use a usb flash drive to bring the installer over to your infected computer, then install the firewall. if you don't have a virus scanner, download avg freeware 8 (again from another computer). comodo can be downloaded from here . be sure it is the free version.(it works fine, i have it running on several pc's) or take a look at this hope that helps.

Funny UST scandal virus


Hello,

Right click My Computer, select Properties, choose System Restore and turn off SR on all drives.

Then, do all the manual removals you posted before. Then, go to this url:
http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner
and run the full virus scan on all drives.

Because the files you note as infected are actually required by XP to run, you may not actually be able to go online, still try not to remove those files if possible, once they are removed you will have to restart your machine with the XP Disc and tell it to install, load any specific drivers needed such as those for your raid array if you have one, only when Setup tells you Windows is already installed, select Repair instead of New and Windows will heal your system.

So, because of those critical files being corrupted, don't be too surprised that when your online scan asks you to clean your system that your system freezes or halts at some point. Just be prepared with your Windows disc and Product Key.

I'll be available for any follow up questions you may have just comment back to me by clicking on my user name and then Ask Me.

Regards,
Worldvet

Funny ust scandal.avi


" After receiving many complaints from people’s about this virus, I finally decided to guide the users about the removal of this virus. Some of the problems caused by this virus are :
1. Show Hidden Files and Folders not working.
2. My Computer Drives open another explorer window.
3. When you run a program, just in 2 or 3 minutes the program dissappears (Actually runs in background but you can not see its window in foreground).
Removal of this Virus
Unfortunately, I have no removal tool to remove this virus at the time of writing, but you will soon see one. You can try the manual removal of it.
Manual Removal
Caution : While the manual process is going on, do not open any My Computer drive.
1. Open up cmd by typing cmd in Start –> Run.
2. Type in cmd
taskkill /f /im smss.exe
taskkill /f /im killer.exe
3. The virus placed some files at the root of every drive so you need to clean them.
Repeat the following commands on cmd for all your drives (Here it is applied for C drive)
del /a:h /f c:\autorun.inf
del /a:h /f c:\smss.exe
del /a:h /f c:\funny ust scandal.avi.exe
4. Now you need to delete files in windows folder so type :
del /a:h /f c:\windows\killer.exe
del /a:h /f c:\windows\autorun.inf
del /a:h /f c:\windows\smss.exe
del /a:h /f c:\windows\funny ust scandal.exe
5. Now you need to delete one more file :
del /a:h /f “%userprofile%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\lsass.exe”
6. Use PowerExes to delete startup entries like.
smss.exe
lsass.exe(if it does not remove then only uncheck it)
killer.exe
7. To restore Folder Option Settings Follow this page
Show Hidden Files And Folders Not Working
8. To Remove the virus from Flash Drive, Insert a flash drive cancel any Autoplay box.
Open cmd and type (Replace x by your usb drive letter)
del /a:h /f x:\autorun.inf
del /a:h /f x:\smss.exe
del /a:h /f x:\funny ust scandal.avi.exe"
