    Window can not find gphone.exe


    Hi,
    gphone.exe is nowadays one of the most dangerous virus spreading very fastly.Its a trojan and changes your IE homepage and sends tries to open gtalk and yahoo messenger.It even sends messages to gtalk contacts.Its icon is just like that of folder icon and people thinking of folder click on it get infected by the virus.
    Gphone virus basically is a 260 kb .exe file which looks like a folder and it can take any name of any other folder if you have clicked on the virus folder which looks like a folder but it isnt.If you have a folder name “comptalks” in your D drive it will make a exe file in the folder named comptalks.exe and if you click on that exe file it too work as a virus.It makes .exe files in all the folders you have with the name of the folder.
    To remove the gphone.exe virus you just need to follow simple steps:
    Go to Task Manager ->Processes and then click on gphone.exe and click on end process.
    After that manually go to folder where gphone.exe is present and simply delete it.
    Or simply search for the exe file clicking which started sending messages through gtalk. If you clicked on 1.exe search for that file on task manager and then delete it.


    Good luck.

    Windows cannot find gphone.exe??


    Gphone.exe is a file that an instant-message worm infects. This worm spreads through Google chat and Yahoo! Messenger. This “Gphone.exe” worm disables your antivirus security software, and downloads more crapware onto your PC.

    To remove do this:
    1. Block Gphone.exe sites: http://rnd009.googlepages.com/
    2. Stop Gphone.exe processes: %Windir%\gphone.exe
    %System%\gphone.exe
    %System%\DEFAULT_NOT_SET.exe
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop\gphone.exe
    %Temp%\gphone.exe
    %System%\gphone.exe
    %DriveLetter%\New Folder.exe
    %DriveLetter%\gphone.exe
    [ROOT FOLDER]\New Folder.exe
    [ROOT FOLDER]\gphone.exe Get rid of Gphone.exe files:

    %DriveLetter%\autorun.inf
    %Windir%\Tasks\At1.job
    [ROOT FOLDER]\autorun.inf
    C:\disk.txt
    %System%\autorun.ini
    %System%\setting.ini
    %Temp%\log_[TIME AND DATE].txt


    3. Delete Gphone.exe registry keys using regedit from start - run:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\WorkgroupCrawler\Shares\”shared” = “[ROOT FOLDER]\New Folder.exe”
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\”Yahoo Messengger” = “%System%\gphone.exe”
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\”Shell” = “Explorer.exe gphone.exe”
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\Schedule\”AtTaskMaxHours” = “0′
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\Schedule\”NextAtJobId” = “2′
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\”DisableTaskMgr” = “1′
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\”DisableRegistryTools” = “1′
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\”NofolderOptions” = “1′
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\”Default_Page_URL” = “http://rnd009.googlepages.com/google.html”
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\”Default_Search_URL” = “http://rnd009.googlepages.com/google.html”
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\”Search Page” = “http://rnd009.googlepages.com/google.html”
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\”Start Page” = “http://rnd009.googlepages.com/google.html”
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\”Start Page” = “http://rnd009.googlepages.com/google.html”
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel\”HomePage” = “1′
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel\”HomePage” = “1′ Note: In any Gphone.exe files I mention above, “%UserProfile%” is a variable referring to your current user’s profile folder. If you’re using Windows NT/2000/XP, by default this is “C:\Documents and Settings\[CURRENT USER]” (e.g., “C:\Documents and Settings\JoeSmith”).

    Go to Start > Run> type "msconfig" and press enter. click the startup tab and uncheck the box that says "gphone.exe". (it may have a long file or folder path in front like c:\windows\system32).

    Opening of drives


    I have seen this several times and it is brought about due to a virus that creates an autorun file (autorun.ini).

    In this file when you double click the drive, executes the file and in the autorun file exists any of the following: -
    Microsoftpowerpoint.exe
    smss.exe
    .... or many others.

    It is good thing that you have a strong antivirus which seems to have removed the viruses and therefore when the information file is opened, it does not find the executables it was supposed to run. That is why it asks for a program to open.

    You can prove this by right clicking on the drive to see a shortcut menu and in this menu, the bolded menu will be the action taken when double clicked and the possibility is that you will find Autorun bolded.

    To resolve the issue do the following:
    1) Open My computer program or windows explorer.
    2) Right click on the drive and open or explore it.
    3) Locate the file Autorun and delete it. If the file is not shown, from the folder options choose show all files. This is because sometimes this file may be hidden.

    Try double clicking the drives again to see if you get he same error.

    NOTE: Many virus developers have made possible for people to install/run viruses in there own computers by simply double clicking the drives like flash disk.
