    You should have anti virus software on the PC. Run that software and scan the whole system, you will have to wait a good while for the scan to be complete, after completion move any infections it finds into the virus vault.

This is quite a severe virus. Download Microsoft Security Essentials from the link below and install & run it, see if it gets rid of the malware.

Its not a good idea to plug in any flash or external drives to your PC until you have removed the virus as you will infect them too.

Worm.win32.autorun.blw virus appear in my system i already use kesper sky, but not solved. please advise a solution. thanx

When the executable is run on the victim's machine, the worm copies itself to the following locations:

  • %Application Data%\autorun.inf
Where %Application Data% = c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data

Exp: [autorun]
The worm adds a Run entry in registry so that it executes itself at every startup:
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    "(Default)" = "%Application Data%\remove.exe"
Symptoms -
  • Presence of above mentioned files.
  • Presence of registry entries mentioned above.
Method of Infection Method of Infection - This worm spreads by using autorun.inf on shared drives and removable devices.
Removal - A combination of the latest DATs and the Engine will be able to detect and remove this threat. AVERT recommends users not to trust seemingly familiar or safe file icons, particularly when received via P2P clients, IRC, email or other media where users can share files.

My computer has an email worm and am unsure about fixing it.

What this will do is reset your computer back to factory defaults like you had just got it out of the box. This would fix the problem for sure. Of course you could also go here as well and download the win32.brontok removal tool. This program will remove any instance of the worm on your computer and get rid of it. This way you won't have to restore your computer back to factory defaults.

How can i remove virus worm/autoit permanently

its simple guys..!!!
if it asks for permission to access outlook..don't permit it because it is a smart virus and is going to spread it to all the people on your contact list...!!!
simply open task manager and end process tree of KHATRA.exe , gHost.exe , xplorer.exe and OUTLOOK.exe seperately...!!
then run your anti virus or download one if you don't have one..!!!
run a complete computer scan in detail..!!
then delete all files which are infected by the virus because the results contain only duplicate files which are created by the virus
