AUTORUN.EXE & RECYCLE VIRUS


You need to do a low level format on the pen drive and the system drive. I have found by using programs like kill disk is the best way to get rid of a worm virus. A regurlar format will not work, unlike what they say to you. Kill disk will stop all running prorgrams on the drive. What it does it rights zero to the pen the drive. After that you need to do the same to your system drive. Otherwise you will be back to square one.

You should down load a trial version of NOD32 you have to supply them with your e-mail address.they will send you code to put on after installing that would be valid for 30 days but trust me. You'll scann ur Pc and ur ext Drives. the virus will be away.

Pen drive


pritz,
if the virus is of autorun category:
  • then you should use your pen drive in that system which have allready installed an anti virus. Otherwise it will effect your system.
If the virus is not of autorun category then no problem.
  1. Just insert it into USB.
  2. Just close when the auto run windows appears.Don't open folder or any thing else.
  3. Goto My Computer
  4. Right click on pendrive icon.
  5. Select format and format using FAT, because some pendrive does only support FAT.

Thanks
Iqbal
