That's a virus from a virus-infected computer. I'm very sure of it. 100%. Your phone is also infected... Only McAffee Anti-virus ca n remove it for now.

Sony experia U Sony keeps flashing on screen and nothing else happens. This occured after I tried to update phone

To install the flash tool, follow the steps below:
  1. Download the Tools
  2. Unzip the file you downloaded and place it somewhere on your computer.
  3. In the unzipped folder, run Emma.exe. During the installation, make sure you remember the installation path:
    1. Default path in Windows 64 bit is: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Sony Mobile\Emma\"
    2. Default path in Windows 32 bit is: "C:\Program Files\Sony Mobile\Emma\"
  4. Copy the Customization.ini file. You find it in the <Emma zip filename>.
  5. Paste the Customization.ini file into the installation folder. The installation folder is the folder named Emma in the installation path examples on point 3.1 and 3.2 above.
  6. Click Start > All programs > Sony Mobile > Emma (if you used the default installation path from step 3 above) to start the flash tool

There are two folder namely desktop.ini, desktop.ini automatically appeared in the desktop. I scan my computer using Microsoft security Analysis but these folders are not moved or deleted from the desktop....

This must be a worm that replicates files/folders. As we all know, desktop.ini is not a folder, it's a system file which can be opened with Notepad.

What antivirus were you using to scan your computer? This worm/s can be easily detected and deleted/repaired by avg free (click here to download avg free). [open the link and click green "Download" button]

Download and install the Avg Free. Run a full system scan and check the result. That will fix the issue related to your desktop.ini folder etc..etc..

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Hi Mekarim,

You may try this:

1. Open the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe folder and look for a folder starting with Type and meaning Type support; in 10 it is called TypeSpt;

2. Create a namesake folder on your Desktop;

3. Move all the contents to the namesake folder.

Please report back, including the name of the folder.

Unknown connection protocol for default or autosession

Assuming you can get past that error message:
  • go to the Options menu, then Global Options
  • Click on the + to the left of Options to open the item
  • Click on Default Session
  • Uncheck the box "Use auto session
  • Click on OK
If you can't get past that message, uninstall SecureCRT and re-install it - it sounds as though some of it's configuration data has got corrupted. If you are comfortable doing this, use Windows Explorer, make hidden files & folders visible and then go to
C:\Documents and settings\your-user-name.

For all the following, ensure SecureCT is not running - even in the System Tray.

Look for the SecuerCRT folder in Application Data and Local Settings\Application Data (I can't remember which one it's in offhand). In that folder, there's a folder called Config. Assuming that you don't have a load of connections set up that you don't want to lose, delete the whole folder. SecureCRT will ask you where to re-create it next time it starts.
It's also possible to delete do it this way:
  • in the Config folder, edit global.ini with notepad.
  • Find the line that starts "S:"Auto Session Name"="
  • Delete the whole line
  • Save and close the file
  • Restart SecureCRT
