I plugged my flash drive into my school's network and as expected, i picked alot of malicious software....i brought it home, plugged it in and ran AVG. The viruses/worms etc. were detected and i deleted them but they kept reappearing and they're on my external hard drive too. Now everytime i insert this external Hard Drive, Windows asks me which kind of program which i normally shouldn't (and doesn't) do. Also, this new Internet Explorer icon appears on my desktop when theres already a shortcut for it.
I ran ComboFix and this problem was temporarily solved but it happens every time i plug in my hard drive....if someone has the time, could they take a look at my log file...anyone's help would REALLY be appreciated..

Hello humza and welcome to BC :thumbsup:

It sounds as though you have a flash infection. Please tell us what your operating system is: Windows XP, Vista, etc. What security programs do you have installed? Please name them. I see that you have AVG. Is that the AntiVirus program or the AntiSpyware program?
