To solve this error, follow this steps:

1>> Run Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del or right click on Taskbar)
2.>> Stop wscript.exe process if available by highlighting the process name and clicking End Process.
3.>> Then terminate explorer.exe process.
4. >>In Task Manager, click on File -> New Task (Run…).
5.>> Type “cmd” (without quotes) into the Open text box and click OK.
6>>. Type the following command one by one followed by hitting Enter key:

del c:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a
del d:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a
del e:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a

c, d, e each represents drive letters on Windows system. If there are more drives or partitions available, continue to command by altering to other drive letter. Note that you must also clean the autorun files from USB flash drive or portable hard disk as the external drive may also be infected.
7. In Task Manager, click on File -> New Task (Run…).
8. Type “regedit” (without quotes) into the Open text box and click OK.
9. Navigate to the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
10. Check if the value name and value data for the key is correct (the value data of userint.exe include the path which may be different than C drive, which is also valid, note also the comma which is also needed):

“Userinit”=”C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,”(correct this)

If the value is incorrent, modify it to the valid value data.

Remove virus on hard disk and usb's


Insert your USB drive in the appropriate USB slot in your computer.

If the Autoplay dialog box appears, select "Take No Action" and click the "OK" button.


Launch your anti-virus program, such as AVG Antivirus or Anti Malware.

Select the USB drive for the program to scan.

Click the "Start Scan" button or option.


Open the scan history for the USB drive when the scan is complete to see a list of viruses and warnings identified by the antivirus software.


If desired, select the options to "Heal All Infected Files" or "Move the Infected Files to the Virus Vault" to ensure these files are quarantined from your system.


Highlight each infected file in the scan history. Write down the file name of each infected file identified on the USB drive. Minimize the application's window.


Select "Run" from the Windows "Start" menu. In the Run window, type "e:/" at the command prompt to switch to your USB drive (or type the drive letter for your USB drive). Press the Enter key.


Type "attrib -s -h -r -a *.*" at the command prompt to remove the system, hidden, read-only and archive file attributes.

Press the Enter key.


Type "del ####.+++" where "####" is the file name of the infected file and "+++" is the file extension, at the command prompt line.

Press the Enter key.


For example, "del terriblevirus.exe" will specifically delete the Terrible Virus executable file. Repeat for each infected file on your list identified in Step 4.


Close the command prompt window; that is, exit the Run utility.


Maximize the window for your anti-virus program (which is still open) and repeat Steps 2 to 7 until no virus is detected on your USB drive.

Exit the anti-virus application.

or
Click start click on my computer you should see your usb drive right click then select format.

another way is to control panel administrative tools computer management disk management right Click on your drive select format



Hope this helps

Buy a new disk-drive (your current disk-drive probably is a few years old, and probably the warranty on the disk-drive has expired. So, it's good "preventative maintenance" to replace it before it "dies".)

Disconnect the old disk-drive.
Connect the new disk-drive.
Re-install Windows.
Re-install anti-virus software (or pick a different one, since your current one "failed" to protect you).
Re-install programs (Microsoft Office, Adobe Reader, WinAmp).
Reconnect the old disk-drive as a "slave" drive.
Copy all your files from the "old" disk to the "new" disk.
Virus-scan the "old" disk.

Eventually, "wipe" the old disk, and then, once a week, copy all your files from the "new" disk to the "old" disk, to create a good "second" copy of all your files, to protect you, should your "new" disk-drive suddenly fail.

We have a LINUX Suse server. We have this nhatquanglan virus on our XP machines. I can do a system restore on the XP's and all functions (task manager, device manager, etc) that were disabled by the virus...


System restore on XP is restoring individual PC stations but because you have probably shared folders on linux server you have same problem on server. Solution:
  • Remove network cable from linux server
  • Install some antivirus solution for linux server (in case you don't have one) and scan and clean server from viruses.
  • Also after you remove network cables from workstations scan and remove viruses from XP stations
  • When you finish those steps atach network cables and probably you will not have that problem
Reason for that is becausesome viruses and trojans are spreading through shared folders

HDD Reformatting


why not reinstall sp3 again for windows xp if it freezes then it might be looking for files that don't exist anymore. If the virus attatched itself to your files they may have been removed when you ran your virus software. you don't need to format to reload windows. Just simply do a clean reinstall on C drive.

Infeced virous make folde in a folder.exe


The virus is called "Brontok" or "Rontok". Its much hard to get rid of it. It may cause ur computer to restart while opening any anti virus, cmd.exe, command.exe etc. Only way is to san the drive from some other computer with an updated anti virus.
OR
Format driver with windows installation, instal windows, and install an anti virus before anything else ( do not open any drives except ur windows installation partition ) and get latest updates. Scan and remove virus.
