Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2
I have a virus that puts a Winplayer.exe file and a autorun.inf onto any add on/external drive that is attached to the computer. I i dont keep these deleted it eventually causes my computer to crash. I have updated synamtics antivirus and it doesnt catch anything to do with it. Need help to get rid of this.
You probably have the virus on your registry and that is a tough one. it depends on the type of virus you have, it may not allow you to install an anti-virus, but you can give it a try. download ad-ware or malwarebytes from the internet, the free version and enable all the settings. start with the malwarebytes its good for problems like this and see if it can get the virus out.

Malwarebytes and Ad-aware should be able to help you out here. If they're unable to, then I suggest getting combofix and running it while your computer is in safemode. It will clear out any problems you may have, and should get your computer up and running fine again.

Try Lavasoft Ad-Aware Free Version:
I would advise you to disable "System Restore" on All drives, then reboot, install Ad-Adware, update and scan complete system.
If it presists, you will need to fight it in command prompt mode, first use Microsoft's Autoruns.exe to try locate the entry point of the virus, delete the associated files, search whole Windows folder for the same filename in registry, delete them... it's a long procedure.
Let me know if Ad-Aware cannot clean it (you may have to help it by disabling System Restore and delete very similar files that the virus can come back with, but becareful not to delete legimate Microsoft files).

Tips for a great answer:
Genreally when you refresh the windows

attached to many events of windows explorer including OPEN, REFRESH,
You must close opened explorer windows.
1. Open up a command prompt (i.e. cmd.exe) >> to load it go to Run, type cmd, enter.

3. After finishing above, quickly remove the pendrive as soon as posible (just after executing del command).
4. Now your pen is without virus activation config. file. Now you can safely delete unnecessary EXE files on it.
