I did a quick search and it seems that fooool.exe is related to explorer.exe that i posted about earlier that some anti viruses were locating it as a virus and i thought back than that they are detecting the legitimate one.

anyways i still need help on how to remove this infection.

Try this download Flash Disinfector by sUBs and save it to your desktop.

Double-click Flash_Disinfector.exe to run it. Follow any prompts that may appear.
Your desktop will vanish for a while, and then reappear. This is normal.
Wait until the program has finished scanning, then please exit the program.
Restart your computer and see if problem still persists.

Remember to disable any AV / ScriptBlockers as they might detect Flash Disinfector to be malicious and block it.

Did you plug in your usb stick when you ran Flash_Disinfector.exe? If not, you need to do so then rerun it to take care of the autorun.ini issue.

Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" or "Safe Mode With Command Prompt" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode With Command Prompt".

Go to Start > Run and type: cmd
  • press Ok.
  • At the command prompt, type in your primay drive location, usually C:
  • You may need to change the directory. If so type: cd \
  • Hit Enter.
  • Type: attrib Fooool.* -s -h -r -a
  • Hit Enter.
  • Type: dir /s Fooool.exe
  • Hit Enter.
  • If the file is present, type: del Fooool.exe
  • Hit Enter.
  • Repeat the above commands for each drive on your computer.
  • Exit the command prompt and reboot normally.
When done, check for and remove any Startup RUN values by downloading and using Autoruns.
