I'm experiencing problems with this w32.sillydc. I've followed the instructions quietman7 has put up for Sdas57 in another topic dealing with this but im still not getting rid of the infection.
I'm no computer expert so my apologies if i've missed something really fundemental or i've done something stupid
I have "Reconfigured Windows XP to show hidden files, folders", but for some reason, it reverts back to hidden after about 30 seconds. I'm not totally sure why.
I also cannot find the Autorun.inf file when i search the drives, but the reason behind that might be something weird going on relating to the files and folders being hidden again automatically as stated above.
I also cannot find the autorun file when following the intructions in the "run -> cmd" part when im in safe mode.
It comes up with first "C:\ documents and settings\ hp owner:" then i type in the del autorun bit and it cannot find it. I don't know if its the document and setting bit, and maybe it should only be C:\ when i search for it, but i'm not sure how to do that.
When i run msncleaner in safe mode, it finds the Autorun.inf file and I delete it as instructed. But if i run the cleaner again immediately afterwards, the Autorun.inf file appears again everytime. I've tried it with both the Task manager box checked and unchecked.
I have a feeling its something really simple i'm missing out. any help is appreciated! And if anyone has any questions, please do not hesistate to ask
