I am using a Transcend 8GB USB Pend Driver. when i scanned it, it showed me that, find "rahulvirusprotection.vbe". Hence i delete it immediately. After deleting the virus, i tried to access the...

It is virus which uses autorun feature of the removable devices such as USB Pen Drive. These type of viruses usually have two files. (a) autorun.inf and (b) the executable (.exe) or script file. Some Antivirus programs delete the exe file but the autorun files remains. In your case, the exe file (rahul's virus protection.vbe) has been removed but the autorun entry is there, which is run everytime you try to access your pen drive. First, plug-in the drive and DONT OPEN IT. Open 'My Computer' , right click the pen drive and choose explore. (This would by-pass the autorun feature).

Download Flash Disinfector and save it to your desktop. Double-click Flash Disinfector.exe to run it and follow any prompts that may appear. The utility may ask you to insert your flash drive. Please do so and allow the utility to clean up those drives as well. Wait until it has finished scanning and then exit the program.
Reboot your computer when done.

(Flash_Disinfector will remove any autorun.inf files, create a hidden folder named autorun.inf in each partition and every USB drive plugged in when you ran it. Don't delete this folder. It will help protect your drives from future infection)

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Good Luck!
Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help!

Antivirus for ''doomsday'' virus

I had this virus, and the following procedure seemed to work in getting rid of it for me. Hopefully it works for you as well.
open command prompt my going Start > Run and typing cmd.
You should be in a directory called something like “C:\Documents and Settings\User”. if you are not, change to it by typing ‘cd’ and the directory above (replacing ‘user’ with your username), and then pressing enter.
type ‘attrib’ and press enter. There should be a file called svchost.exe, and will have the attributes SHR (which stands for System-file, hidden, and read-only).
type ‘attrib -s -h -r svchost.exe’. This removes the SHR properties and allows you to delete the file.
type ‘del svchost.exe’. This should delete the virus from your computer.
NOTE: svchost.exe is a critical system file if it is located in C:\WINDOWS\System32. If it is located elsewhere (as this one is), it is generally a virus.
Then, insert infected pen drives (memory sticks, iPods etc.) which carry the virus. Change the directory to the pen drive by typing ‘E:’(or whatever letter it is) ENTER. Then type ‘attrib’ as above.
there should be the files ‘protector.exe’ and ‘autorun.inf’ which also have the properties SHR. type ‘attrib -s -h -r’ ENTER, and then delete the files by typing ‘del autorun.inf’ ENTER then ‘del protector.inf’ ENTER. This should remove the virus. Autorun.inf might reappear, but this shouldn’t be a problem.
Do not open the pen drive after you insert it, and cancel any autorun windows that come up.

Access is denied

Possible reason is
that your pendrive Contains
An autorun.inf file pointing to a *.exe file(possiblly a virus)

So either you run a scan with good antivirus
You can delete the file manually by

> Goto>> Run>>Type the drive letter of your pendrive and follow a full colon(Eg: "C:")
then just enter
now if you cant see the autorun.inf file
you go to folder options to change the view
that is (go to tab view )

1. tick "show hidden files and folders "
2. Untick " Hide operating system files"
Apply it

now you will see the autorun.inf file just delete it

It will solve your problem

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

D:\ application can not run in Win32 mode

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):


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