Removing virus from "System Volume Information" folder


Quite often antivirus scanner locate a virus, quarantine it than you find that the next day it's back again. What happened is that windows have included the viruses into the system restore point when it creates one. The folder that contains the restore point information is the "System volume information" folder this is a protected folder.

You may be able to see the folder at all. There are two methods of ridding yourself of the virus if the scanner is incapable. Both require you to be logged on as an administrator.
First method:

The first method is to remove all the restore points. Unless you are 100% sure you will never need to restore to a previous point then by all means do it.

1. Right click on my computer then click on system restore tab. Place a check mark alongside "Turnoff system restore on all drives" click Ok and close the dialog boxes.
2. Run your antivirus scanner again to make sure the virus is gone. You can choose to perform the task you can do only in the folder where virus is detected. In this case “System Volume information” Folder.
3. Once your are happy return to System Restore tab and uncheck the mark while you are there highlighted the drives, click Settings and slide the slider to the left to around 2%. This will release a significant amount of hard drive space. Windows default setting is to reserve 12% and on a 150 gig drive that can total 18 gigabytes. 2% will still give you enough room for an ample number of restore points. Click OK and close the dialog boxes.
4. Next, Create a new restore point. With any name you want.

Preventing Reinfection of Virus for newly installed XP.


Hello XP users, Hi, here is a tip of how to prevent viruses from reinfecting your PC, the virus is well usually comes from your USB flash drives, and or your back up files from your hard drives as I assume you have a Drive D: Here are the things you should do so that you will not get reinfected.
Im assuming you are using XP
1. Reformat/reinstall again your OS and as for your Hard Drive, set 2 partitions, for system this would be drive C: and for Data, this is for drive D:2. After installing the XP (you now at this point have a start button) caution: do not use any flash drive or open your other drives, set you folder options to Show all files and Folders.
start->my computer->tools->folder options->view on the hidden files and folder, select Show hidden files and folderand uncheck the two checkbox below, (this is hide extension and hide protected .... )apply and or OK
3. Run GPEDIT.MSC from the RUN option
start->run then type GPEDIT.MSC then OK
4. Under Group Policies, goto administrative templates -> system -> turn off autoplay then enable select all drives -> OK ->exit
this will make the autorun.inf functions not to load automatically. This option makes the virus not to load automatically. caution again, at this point be cautious of what you will DOUBLE CLICK.
5. install an antivirus software, (any freeware will do, but i prefer the AVAST one)
your PC is now protected from reinfections.
you can now scan ALLl your drives and flash drives.
You can also manually delete the virus files on your drives. they are usually folder looking files, usually 743/744 bytes. You can also see some recycle bin ICONS with unusual names (who created them?) If you did not create them, erase them files.

Run SEARCH on all drives except C: with all .EXE files and under the what size is it? select medium. then click search.
on the search result, delete all the folder looking .EXE files with 743 or 744 bytes (usually).
caution one more: before opening a removeable flash drive, do the SEARCH thing on this drive.
Your done. = }

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.

Usb flash drive icon changes into folder icon


This issue may have resulted from a virus infection on the machine the drive was plugged into.

You’ll need to delete the file autoruns.inf located on your flash drive.

By default, Windows hides this file, so before you can delete it you must make a couple of changes (you may reverse these after you’ve finished):

Open My Computer
Tools
Folder Options…
Click on the View tab
Under “Hidden files and folder” choose “Show hidden files and folders”
Remove the tick from “Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)
OK

Go back to My Computer and click on your flash drive. If you can’t open it that way, try right clicking on it and choose “Explore.”

Find the autoruns.inf file, right click on it and choose “Delete.” Confirm “Yes.”

Unplug and re-plug the drive in. You should be back to normal.

Hope that helps.
