Hi BC,

Good day.

I am having hard time deleting the viruses:

Backup.exe
Do not delete.exe
List.exe
New Folder.exe
Unknown artist.exe
Worbook 1.exe

I got these viruses when my external hard drive inserted from a laptop and then inserted into my computer.

All the files mentioned above copy itself automatically to my Local Disk C. And it migrates the safe files everytime I open a folder inside the local disk C.

I searched the net and found a solution from Trend Micro website http://www.trendmicro.com/vinfo/virusencyc...EAY&VSect=T --- but this solution is already useless. (if im not wrong) because the following were already disabled:

1. regedit
2. msconfig
3. command prompt
4. system restore

I tried it to boot in SafeMode but same scenario.. everything were disabled.

I can simply reformat my laptop and reinstall everything, since its new and never been used. But my problem is my external hard drive, I do not know how to remove the virus from there. I do not want to reformat it because I have important data archived save in the external drive.


Can somebody help? Any responce will be much appreciated.


Thank you,
Arix

Download Flash_Disinfector.exe by sUBs and save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click Flash_Disinfector.exe to run it and follow any prompts that may appear.
  • The utility may ask you to insert your flash drive and/or other removable drives. Please do so and allow the utility to clean up those drives as well.
  • Wait until it has finished scanning and then exit the program.
  • Reboot your computer when done.
Note: Flash_Disinfector will create a hidden folder named autorun.inf in each partition and every USB drive plugged in when you ran it. Don't delete this folder...it will help protect your drives from future infection.

Hi Budafest,

The Flash Disinfector was unable to removed the virus.
Fortunately, I was able to update my Symantec antivirus of my laptop. Once updated, I run a Full Scan and deleted the virus in my laptop and in the external hard drive.

I appreciate your support.

Thank you,
Arix

Run this scan as a double check:

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes, they may alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please permit the program to allow the changes.

CASTIGLIANO,
Instead of hijacking a year old thread, start you own. Include a description of what is wrong
