Ouch!

.exe files got corrupted


well, if the CD won't read in Windows, and this is due to a virus, it should not affect the drives functionality before windows loads. You will need to use a bootable CD (like the Windows CD) and when you power on hte computer, enter the boot menu (check bottom of screen during power up for the correct button.) then select CD ROM and see if it will boot to Windows Set up. If it will, exit setup, restart windows, back up your data to a jump drive and then reboot with the CD & boot menu selection, and reload windows. Before you do any of this, go to acer's website and download all of the drivers for your computer to a jump drive, you will need them for the windows reinstall

Hello,

Right click My Computer, select Properties, choose System Restore and turn off SR on all drives.

Then, do all the manual removals you posted before. Then, go to this url:
http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner
and run the full virus scan on all drives.

Because the files you note as infected are actually required by XP to run, you may not actually be able to go online, still try not to remove those files if possible, once they are removed you will have to restart your machine with the XP Disc and tell it to install, load any specific drivers needed such as those for your raid array if you have one, only when Setup tells you Windows is already installed, select Repair instead of New and Windows will heal your system.

So, because of those critical files being corrupted, don't be too surprised that when your online scan asks you to clean your system that your system freezes or halts at some point. Just be prepared with your Windows disc and Product Key.

I'll be available for any follow up questions you may have just comment back to me by clicking on my user name and then Ask Me.

Regards,
Worldvet

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.

Get an anti-virus program. A great little free-tool is Windows Defender. Go to the Microsoft Website, and download Windows Defender. Then run a Complete Scan. If that can't find the problem, then try a comercial anti-virus program such as Norton or McAfee.

Please note, however, that no matter how much you get rid of this "virus", your computer will never perform the way it used to. My main suggestion is to backup all your important data to somewhere else (either online, on a disk, or on another computer. DO NOT BACK IT UP TO YOUR HARD DRIVE!!). Reinstall Windows XP or Vista, and reformat your hard drive. Look on the Microsoft Website if you need any help about Reformating.

" After receiving many complaints from people’s about this virus, I finally decided to guide the users about the removal of this virus. Some of the problems caused by this virus are :
1. Show Hidden Files and Folders not working.
2. My Computer Drives open another explorer window.
3. When you run a program, just in 2 or 3 minutes the program dissappears (Actually runs in background but you can not see its window in foreground).
Removal of this Virus
Unfortunately, I have no removal tool to remove this virus at the time of writing, but you will soon see one. You can try the manual removal of it.
Manual Removal
Caution : While the manual process is going on, do not open any My Computer drive.
1. Open up cmd by typing cmd in Start –> Run.
2. Type in cmd
taskkill /f /im smss.exe
taskkill /f /im killer.exe
3. The virus placed some files at the root of every drive so you need to clean them.
Repeat the following commands on cmd for all your drives (Here it is applied for C drive)
del /a:h /f c:\autorun.inf
del /a:h /f c:\smss.exe
del /a:h /f c:\funny ust scandal.avi.exe
4. Now you need to delete files in windows folder so type :
del /a:h /f c:\windows\killer.exe
del /a:h /f c:\windows\autorun.inf
del /a:h /f c:\windows\smss.exe
del /a:h /f c:\windows\funny ust scandal.exe
5. Now you need to delete one more file :
del /a:h /f “%userprofile%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\lsass.exe”
6. Use PowerExes to delete startup entries like.
smss.exe
lsass.exe(if it does not remove then only uncheck it)
killer.exe
7. To restore Folder Option Settings Follow this page
Show Hidden Files And Folders Not Working
8. To Remove the virus from Flash Drive, Insert a flash drive cancel any Autoplay box.
Open cmd and type (Replace x by your usb drive letter)
del /a:h /f x:\autorun.inf
del /a:h /f x:\smss.exe
del /a:h /f x:\funny ust scandal.avi.exe"
