Hi when I try to remove the three files from the USB stick generated by the W32.Mumawow.F virus, I can delete the text and other file but the Autorun file can not be manually deleted. Can you please advise how to remove it? Thanks for your help.

Hi Gav141 and welcome to BleepingComputer.

Have you tried formatting the flash drive?

You can google the specific drive that you have and see if there are instructions for formatting it.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

There are a lot of USB Flash drive viruses appearing, many of them from China and very strong.

You would do best to post your request in the Hijack This logs and Malware Removal forum. They should be able to help you there.

Good luck.
