It seems like a worm more or less a along vir detail below - you wlll have to scan and remove it using a good antivirus program:
Virus Profile: W32/Xiaoho.worm Name: W32/Xiaoho.worm Risk Assessment - Home Users: Low-Profiled - Corporate Users: Low-Profiled Date Discovered: 8/1/2007 Date Added: 8/1/2007 Origin: N/A Length: Varies Type: Virus SubType: Worm DAT Required: 5088
Virus Characteristics -- Update August 18, 2007 --
The risk assessment of this threat has been updated to Low-Profiled due to media attention at:
http://shanghaiist.com/2007/08/17/vicious_new_chi.php
To receive an extra.dat file for this threat please visit: https://www.webimmune.net/extra/getextra.aspx
This detection is for a worm which tries to copy itself to removable drives. It will destroy systems it's used on by infecting all .exe files and changing their icons to the Chinese character HAO.
Upon execution, the worm drops a copy of itself into the Windows System folder:

  • %SysDir%\exloroe.exe
The worm creates the following registry keys to activate itself:
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{H9I12RB03-AB-B70-7-11d2-9CBD-0O00FS7AH6-9E2121BHJLK}\: "ïµí³éèöã"
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{H9I12RB03-AB-B70-7-11d2-9CBD-0O00FS7AH6-9E2121BHJLK}\stubpath: "%SystemRoot%\system32\exloroe.exe"
It spreads by dropping files named autorun.inf and xiaohao.exe on removable drives and setting file attributes as hidden.
The worm infects .exe files by overwriting them or corrupting them beyond repair. This changes their icon to Chinese word HAO.

Windows run doesn't keep my work history


you have to physically save any work
save the history to a usb drive in case you have computer failure

Plug the flash drive into your computer's rectangular-shaped USB drive.

Wait for Windows to recognize the system.


Windows operating systems use "plug and play" technology, which means that computer peripherals like USB flash drives can be recognized instantly by the system without further need for device configuration.


Open the drive on your computer.

Open the "My Computer" directory if using Windows XP or the "Computer" directory if using


Windows 7 or Vista. Locate the flash drive letter and icon under the section named "Devices with Removable Storage." Double-click the flash drive icon to open it.


Transfer files to the flash drive.

Click the "Restore" button in the top-right corner of the "Computer" or "My Computer" directory to shrink the window so that you can view your computer's desktop background.


Open the folders or locations of the files which you want to save to the flash drive.

Click and drag with your mouse each of the files and folders you want to save to the flash drive over to the empty space in the "My Computer" or "Computer" window.


Release the mouse button to let the files "drop."

Close the windows and directory locations when finished.


Save files directly onto the flash drive. From an open file (i.e. text, spreadsheet, image files. etc.), click the "File" menu and "Save as" option.


Select the "My Computer" or "Computer" directory in the drop-down menu at the top of the "Save As" box. Double-click the flash drive letter under the "Devices with Removable Storage" section.


Click the "Save" button to save the file onto the flash drive.

Close the windows and files when finished


hope this helps

How to burn video todvd using nero7 ?


1) Please make sure you start Nero Buring ROM I show here and NOT the Nero SmartStart.
2) The new complication comes up. If you see a Wizard close it (there must be a button down right which says Close Wizard or something). Open the pull-down menu I show and select DVD.
3)Select DVD-Video (1) from the list. Then just make sure the settings (2) are the same as shown here. Then click on the Label tab.
4) Here just put the label that you want your DVD to have. (It's the name that you see before your drive's letter every time you go to My Computer). After that click New.
5) At the left of your screen you see the folders of the DVD we are going to burn. Notice the VIDEO_TS folder is red. Double click to open the VIDEO_TS folder.
6) At the right of your screen you can see your hard drive. Browse to the folder where you have your DVD files (the files that DVD Shrink created).
7) Select all the files. I repeat: ALL the files.
8) Now drag and drop ALL the files you selected at the step before into the VIDEO_TS folder we opened before at your left.
9) This is how Nero should look after all this. Note that the bat at the bottom should be all blue, or with just a little yellow where it finishes. Now click the burn icon that I show with the arrow.
10) Here select just Write. Put the write speed for your media (for slower media like here, Nero reduces the speed from 4x to 2x, nothing to worry about) and finally click Burn!
Wait for it to finish and you will have a very nice DVD-Video disc!

Wont load


Well if it just wont load the auto menu, then double click on your my computer icon, then double click on the drive letter, where your cd is to start it or open it. Either it will start now, or you will be able to browse the cd. If you can browse the cd, look for the file that has the same name as your game and start it.

Let me know if this helped and if yes rate me :)

If this did not help, please tell me the name of the game and any error messages that you receive when trying the above :)

New screens at Max. size


Hello there.

In Windows sometimes it 'forgets' its window placement but luckily we can set it back to maximised windows by default.

To do this please do the following.

* Double-click "My Computer"
* Maximise window by clicking the icon on the top right.
* Left click "Tools" menu.
* Left click "Folder Options"
* Left click "View" tab.
* Left click "Apply to All Folders" in the "folder view" section
* Finally left click "OK"

This will save your window placement to be maximised by default, for any new windows opened.

Hope this helps.
