To correct and solve this error, follow this steps:

1. Run Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del or right click on Taskbar)
2. Stop wscript.exe process if available by highlighting the process name and clicking End Process.
3. Then terminate explorer.exe process.
4. In Task Manager, click on File -> New Task (Run…).
5. Type “cmd” (without quotes) into the Open text box and click OK.
6. Type the following command one by one followed by hitting Enter key:

del c:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a
del d:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a
del e:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a

c, d, e each represents drive letters on Windows system. If there are more drives or partitions available, continue to command by altering to other drive letter. Note that you must also clean the autorun files from USB flash drive or portable hard disk as the external drive may also be infected.
7. In Task Manager, click on File -> New Task (Run…).
8. Type “regedit” (without quotes) into the Open text box and click OK.
9. Navigate to the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
10. Check if the value name and value data for the key is correct (the value data of userint.exe include the path which may be different than C drive, which is also valid, note also the comma which is also needed):

“Userinit”=”C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,”

If the value is incorrent, modify it to the valid value data.

ThaaaaaanX jLsms, it's done.

At the same time i'd like to add a word of caution to that method . Please avoid /s in that code. Else all autorun.XXX files will be deleated. for me , autorun files in my "d drive" deleted. i quickly pressed Ctrl + C and stopped that command. ( i had a lot of software backups in my d drive )

also in command prompt (cmd), doskey command will help us to reduce some keystrokes .

i did,t find wscript in Taskmanager>Processes ( ie Ctrl + Alt + Del)

The method i followed is this

  1. Pressed Ctrl + Alt + Del
  2. Killed Explorer.exe
  3. Made run CMD
  4. pressed doskey ( it maynot be in some dosshells, if so just skip it)
  5. Entered cd\ ( to get in to the root of c . ie c:\ )
  6. Entered del autorun.* /f /a ( f=forced and a=archive )
(---- i think the other two ( /s = subfolders and /q = quite ) are not essential. More over that /s made some mess in my case )


Once again a agreat ThaaaaaanX to jLsms and to ixya.com


PS -
I've just recovered from a virus funny ust scandav.avi.exe . if anyone facing the same damn, pls ask me , its a simple process from dos ( but a hell from windows ). Cheers!!!
