Hello! My computer (Windows xp) was recently infected with kava.exe (also appeared as kavo and ntdelect). One strange thing that had been happening since approximately the time I got infected was when I went to My Computer to open my C drive and external hard drive, I would double click on the icons and the drives would open in a different window, rather than the same window as had previously always been the case. So, I followed the steps on this website: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/how-to-remove-a-trojan-virus-worm-or-malware/
Ie, I located kava.exe in safe mode with autoruns, deleted it, and tried to delete it from C:\WINDOWS\system32 which is where autoruns said it was located. But I got an error message saying I coudn't because it was either in use or access was denied. So I restarted in normal mode, and was then able to delete it from C:\WINDOWS\system32
Since then, I have been unable to find any trace of the infection in either safe or normal modes, using the windows search function, spybot and autoruns as the way of searching. However!! Now, when I try to open my drives from My Computer by double clicking, it doesn't open them in any window, instead it asks me with which program I want to open the drives with!! Luckily I can still access the drives by using the drop down menu in My Computer or by choosing to open them with Internet Explorer, but clearly something is not right.
So, my questions: Does this mean I'm still infected??? If so how do I fix it?? And how do I get it back to normal for opening my drives from My Computer?? Any help will be very gratefully received!! Thank you!!
