Replace the shortcuts with the same shortcut, only to the same application.
Desktop.ini is an important file.

Delete knctr


Down on the right corner of your desktop near the digital clock should be a drop-down arrow. Click it and you'll see the 'knctr icon'. Click the icon and then click 'Shutdown'. Then go to your control panel and 'Uninstall' that program.
Restart computer.

If that doesnt take care of it- download Superantispyware, install it, and run a scan. remove any found threats. restart computer. Now it should be gone for good.

Download Superantispyware from
http://download.cnet.com/SuperAntiSpywar...
Download it,install it, run it. Perform Quick Scan. Once scan is complete, click Show results-check all threats found and click Remove Threats.

Applications Closing Instantly


Yes, it sounds like a computer-virus.
Remove the disk-drive from your desktop computer,
and attach it as a "slave" disk-drive to some other desktop computer, and then run a full virus-scan.

Or, just follow "best practises":
* backup your data & music & E-mail & contacts,
* reinstall Windows from trusted media,
* run Windows Update a bunch of times,
* reinstall anti-virus software,
e.g., http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials
* reload your files.

Funny folder stayed on my desktop.Moreover cann't delete this virus folder


put ur System restore off..!!..right click on my computer->properties->system restore tab..
immediately download n install an UPDATED licensed antivirus..(i prefer avg/kaspersky)..[without updation, a licensed n full ver antivirus is useless]..hv a thorough system scan..
remove any unused or unknown software from add-remove program..
download, install n run microsoft kb890830..
download n run 'Startup Control Panel'..uncheck all unnecessary startup items..for more help, u may post me/us comments..
http://download.cnet.com/Startup-Control-Panel/3000-2094_4-10039330.html
search for autorun.ini & autorun.inf..remove from all drives (esp if u hv any removable media like pen drive or so)..
restart..
[if ur antivirus finds it n does not removes it, just post me/us the virus name, i/we'll find u a solution to remove it mannualy]..
else u may opt for a fresh format n reinstall os..but do remember, always install the antivirus 1st as said..then may browse other drives/cds/dvds/data backups..
always better to seek supervision frm ur system admin/vendor....

Malware threats


What your seeing is called Adware, they are trying to make you think you are infected to buy their software to remove it.

What you need to do:
Go to www.ewido.com a reseller of AVG, download the software and run a FULL scan once complete delete the threats its finds.

Delete RECYCLER folder


Right click the recycle bin in 'my computer' or on the desktop and goto the properties. You may then configure the recycle bin for each drive or turn it off altogether. Once it is turned off for a particular drive you may remove the recycler folder (ignore the warning) it will not re-appear again when you delete files.
