Use your mouse to right click an open area in the task bar. In the context list that popups up, select Task Manager.
  • Under the Processes tab find the following tasks or processes:
    wscript.exe
  • Highlight it and click "End Process"
  • Exit the Task Manger.
Reconfigure Windows XP to show hidden files, folders. Double-click on My Computer, go to Tools > Folder Options and click on the View tab. Under Hidden Files and Folders, check "Show hidden files and Folders", uncheck "Hide Protected operating system Files (recommended)", uncheck "Hide file extensions for known file types", and hit Apply > OK.

Open my computer and the drive of your flash drive, search for autorun.inf and any killVBS.* files and delete all of them.

An easy way to do this is, click Start > Search > Click "All Files and Folders".
Under "Advanced Options", make sure the following are checked:
  • Search System Folders.
  • Search Hidden Files And Folders.
  • Search Subfolders.
Then copy and paste the following into the search box: killVBS.*
Click Search to find and delete all instances of these files.

Repeat and search for: autorun.inf
Again, delete all instances of these files. Then empty your recycle bin.

Then follow the instructions here for making the applicable registry edits. (click on the Solutions Tab)

This step involves making changes in the registry. Always back up your registry before making any changes. If you are not familiar with working in the registry, then you should NOT attempt to make any changes on your own. Improper changes to the registry could adversely affect your computer and render it inoperable.
