Everyone doesn't want computers infected with a virus. The question is, where the virus entered into the computer. There are two possibilities, may be infected from the Internet or external device (flash drive, memory cards, external hard drives, etc). Flash drives are external devices that are often used. When we insert the flash drive to the infected computer, flash drive will be infected with the virus. In a flash drive that is infected, will form the autorun.inf file. Autorun.inf files will work automatically, every flash drive is inserted. Setting the default operating system is windows autorun when inserted an external device. Autorun windows, used by the autorun.inf, to enter into the computer. To protect your computer from viruses, there are a few things done:

HOW TO REMOVE ,ave.exe known as "VISTA SECURITY 2010 POPUP"

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}

It is fake antivirus on internet. Most of the internet users have got bad experience with this VISTA SECURITY 2010 POPUP. This particular virus cannot be detected with any normal antivirus software and at the end internet users are the victim of loosing important data by formatting the hard drive. This is a scam, should not be taken lightly. It will give popup on your screen like- your Vista PC has got serious infection - System infected with Trojan. Even it will give count of infected files, which is really very scary. This fake antivirus might have downloaded by clicking on infected FACEBOOK or MYSPACE ads or by downloading any software or movies or songs.

Press Crtl+Alt+delete and open task manger then click on process tab. Highlight ave.exe and click on end process

Try the following steps

Go to Start> Run. Type notepad and press enter...
While notepad will open, copy all the text on notepad.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


@="\"%1\" %*"

"Content Type"="application/x-msdownload"

Then save this notepad as fix.reg on the Desktop

*** (Remember to select All Files on save as as window while saving the notepad) ****

Double Click on fix.reg and then click YES for confirm.

Restart the computer.

D drive not open.

If it happens to you that you are not able to open the drives by double click, then your system may be infected with virus. When this virus infects your windows, it automatically creates a autorun.inf in the root directory of each drive. This autorun.inf file is usually hidden, read only and is a system file. This virus also disables folder option. This is not a major problem and can be fixed by deleting autorun.inf file.

  1. Open Start > Run. Now type cmd and press enter. Command prompt window will open.
  2. Type cd/
  3. Type attrib -r -h -s autorun.inf
  4. Now type del autorun.inf
  5. Now type d: and press enter for d: drive partition and repeat steps 3 and 4.
  6. Repeat step 5 for all your hard disk drives.
  7. Restart your computer.

When i double click the c drive it asks me how to open, like through internet explorer,etc.what to do????

use internet explorer to open it. OR go to my computer address bar and click on the arrow on right side and select C Drive from drop down menu. then it will open.

Its happening because there is autorun.inf virus in your c drive. you can find it after enabling hidden folders from the folder options menu. you need to create a autorun.inf file in notepad and replace it with that.
