I don't formats my kingston 64gb pen drive


Hi kingkumarae,
Due to viruses , the drive cannot be formatted in many cases, however if you want to format it ,

I would recommend that you restart your computer and plug in the pen drive and then do not autorun it.

When you do that , you can right click on the drive that you find in my computer and then rightly click on select format option, and then you can format your drive.

If this does not work in your computer you can possibly try it in your laptop using the same procedure.

Hope this helps ...:)

Hi amanvirdi198

The problem seems to be an infection of a virus which has changed the icon of your removable drive and also when you open it up you get the "open with" option by default.

Please follow the below instructions.

  • Select show all files option from the folder options which you find in the start menu the path is :-Start - Control Panel - Tools menu - Folder options.
  • In folder options go in the view tab and select show hidden and system files.
  • Once you are done selecting this option , all you need to do is open your removable drive by right clicking on it and select the 'Open' Option , Or if that does not work use the explore option as you have been doing already .
  • You will find that the hard disk now shows up the contents, so you need to find the autorun.inf file in the root drive , once you find it , you have to 'delete' that file, also delete any suspicious hidden .exe file which is in hidden state and of a small size , which is nothing but a virus which spreads as soon as you plug in your external hard drive and the autorun.inf file get's executed automatically.
  • Therefore once when you delete the autorun file , you should have your hard drive working properly.
  • The above method was the manual method , now if you want to delete the autorun problem automatically via a software , i recommend you to download autorun virus killer by clicking on this link http://bit.ly/k3dOve

Hope this helps...:)

Your feed back would be appreciated.

Recycler folder virus


You don't have a virus, you have the folders without an executeable link. Use windows explorer to delete the files you want to get rid of.

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.

Unable to view the pictures folder


Hi, I got the solution for myself. Initially I have enabled to view the hidden folder option and even then I was not able to see the folder, then later I have disabled the options Hide Extensions for Known file types and Hide Protected Operating system files. Then I could see the folder and able to retrieve the photos. Once I have taken my photos I have formatted my MMC card and it is working normally.

Need manual help to delete TROJAN.ByteVerify from my computer x 2


In the case of a Virus infection I would most likely disconnect the Hard drive from the machine, scan it on another machine ( using AVG7 + AVGAS = AVG Antivirus and AVG Anti Spyware Scan) remembering to turn off system restore while scanning on the drive and scanning in safe mode.

If you have successfully found and removed the virus infection, remember to delete your system volume information and recycler folder on the drive. virus files tend to infect these folders.

Before you plug in your HDD into your machine again, you might want to do a backup of your data, then either do a Windows repair or a Windows Fresh installation (Formating the entire HDD); The repair will attampt to fix the issues that the virus has caused and the fresh install you'll be sure that everything WILL work after installation OR use the Windows repair option AND a registry repair tool to repair registry items.

Another option would be to create a new user name. The settings in that new accound should be working fine and you should be able to access the start menu and your folders again.

Kind Regards
Stef

Virus!!!!!!


The folder option in the toolbar can be made to be dissappear by fingering in the registry-editor of your computer.
This might be done by a virus.

Try Restoring your computer to an older restore point.

You may do this by
Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> System Restore> Next........

If this does not solve the problem, format your drive with operating system.
