Question about Computers & Internet
firstly u had a virus on your system... but u know this aleady... so lets deal with what the virus left behind...
try this out:-
Open the Windows "Start" menu and select "Run...". In the Run box type
C:\autorun.inf -r -h -s and click OK
E:\autorun.inf -r -h -s
OK and so on for all affected drives.
Finally check the volume root of each drive for autorun.inf file.
Is that file present in any drive? If so, manually delete it.
then do this:-
1. You have to tell Windows to show hidden and protected system files first.
2. Then you should search your computer for all instances of files with the name autorun (ANY extension) and delete them. DO NOT DOUBLE-CLICK on discs that have any such files because you will again be infected!
3. Launch regedit - but make sure u backup your reg. first...
a ) Find the key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows NT/Current Version/Winlogon
and check the value of the parameter Userinit. This should read C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe, nothing more.
If Windows is installed on another disc, then, of course the disc will be indicated.
b ) Completely delete the following key:
This last step should be repeated for all user accounts on your computer. You should then restart your computer and that's it.
