If the data is still occupying space but is hidden, try this,
1. open notepad
2. type in "attrib -r -s -h /s /d" without the quotes.
3. click on [file] menu on the notepad and click on [save].
4. on the dialog box that appears save as unhide.bat and select save as type [all files].
5. Save the file.
Browse to your pendrive and copy the file in it(*DO NOT create a folder and put it in it wont work)
6. Double click on the file (unhide.bat)
7.Your folders should become visible.

If you formated your drive you can recover your data by use of recovery software like one on this site http://www.runtime.org/data-recovery-software.htm and choose FAT.my pendrives are infected with - 6497945.jpg

  • new folder.exe
  • Iexplorer.vbs
  • Bha.vbs
  • nfo.exe
  • New_Folder.exe

  • RVHost.exe or any other files with extension.
Actually this viruses are hidden and can't be seen even after
you enable show hidden folders.
Following simple dos command will change the attributes of
these files ,there after you can remove it by pressing delete
key.
Follow these steps:
Step1.:Type cmd in Run
Step2.: Switch to the drive on which pen drive is connected
(like C:\> h: enter)

How to remove Autorun.inf Virus ?


Manual way:
1.) Open Notepad and do not write anything in it. Go to File > Save as autorun.inf
2.) Copy the blank autorun.inf file that you have created in the above step and paste it in your "Pen Drives"
3.) Remove your pendrive.
4.) Re-insert your PC. Now your pendrive is safe to use.
Automatic way:
1.) Download Panda USB Vaccine which allows users to vaccinate their PCs in order to disable autorun completely so that no program from any USB/CD/DVD drive can auto-execute.
2.) Download Flash_Disinfector.exe and save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click Flash_Disinfector.exe to run it and follow any prompts that may appear.
  • The utility may ask you to insert your flash drive and/or other removable drives including your mobile phone.
  • Please do so and allow the utility to clean up those drives as well.
  • Wait until it has finished scanning and then exit the program.
  • Reboot your computer when done.
Flash Disinfector will remove any autorun.inf files; create a hidden folder named autorun.inf in each partition and every USB drive plugged in when you ran it. Don't delete this folder. It will help protect your drives from future infection

My home laptop has been infected with Security Tool. Any advice?


Security tool trojan will alter your .exe files and in the end you will not be able to access/run any .exe file.
AVG ver. 8.5 does not detect it either.
Manual removal:

Search in /Document and Settings for "ave.exe" and "av.exe": delete all entries found. If you cant delete them go into Task Manager and end the process called ave or av then retry to delete.

Search in C:\Windows for "ave*.pf" and "av*.pf" -> delete the entries.

In Notepad paste:

[Version]
Signature="$Chicago$"
Provider=atropine

[DefaultInstall]
DelReg=regsec
AddReg=regsec1

[regsec]
HKCU, Software\Classes\.exe
HKCU, Software\Classes\secfile
HKCR, secfile
HKCR, .exe\shell\open\command

[regsec1]
HKCR, exefile\shell\open\command,,,"""%1"" %*"
HKCR, .exe,,,"exefile"
HKCR, .exe,"Content Type",,"application/x-msdownload"

Save this with the .inf (instead of the default .txt) extension on your desktop. Right click on the file and choose Install
Reboot.

If your u8 has an operating system installed, yes, you can do that.
Be sure to boot the u8 in Safe Mode to copy your files.

I would also recommend checking the copied files for viruses before you use them.

Hello, I am experienceing difficulties with my PC. I can't access to any folders and cant open the start menu.


You might have a Virus. 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.

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.

When you plug in your HDD into your machine again, you might want to do a Windows repair; to fix the issues that the virus has caused OR use 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.

its simple guys..!!!
if it asks for permission to access outlook..don't permit it because it is a smart virus and is going to spread it to all the people on your contact list...!!!
simply open task manager and end process tree of KHATRA.exe , gHost.exe , xplorer.exe and OUTLOOK.exe seperately...!!
then run your anti virus or download one if you don't have one..!!!
run a complete computer scan in detail..!!
