Well, a while ago (coincidentally around the time I got my new flash drive, so I figured it was just something with the drive), my virus scanner (AVG Free Edition) began picking up signs of an infection at a location "C:/autorun.inf", and later "D:/autorun.inf" (my D: drive is the partition with my Windows XP installation, SP2, the other is just for extra storage). I didn't make much note of it.

Recently, my World of Warcraft account has been getting suspensions for "potentially unauthorized access" and things like that, which didn't worry me much until once, after regaining access, I found most of my character's items to be gone. I ran Ad-Aware, Spybot and AVG a number of times, and apparently whatever infection was gone, so I assumed the threat was gone. However, the suspensions have since continued and for the time being, it's permanent. Obviously I want to prevent this in the future, so I want to get rid of this without reformatting my hard drive.

I'm not sure what it does, exactly, I just know that every once in a while my AVG tells me it's detected the infection when accessing a certain file. Asking it to "Heal" the infection apparently does nothing; it will tell me the infection has been healed, and then immediately another, identical warning will pop up. This will occur a few times and then stop.

If it's of any help, I have a dual-boot Ubuntu/XP setup, if the infection could be more easily removed from Ubuntu.

Hi ThorwaldOdinkor,

Welcome to the BleepingComputer forums.

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for assistance. Every one of our team members is a volunteer and unfortunately, there are often just not enough to keep up with demand. Thank you so much for your patience.

If your issue has been resolved or you have received help elsewhere, please post a reply here and let us know so that we can close this thread.

If you still need assistance, my name is SpotCheckBilly (SCB for short) and I will be happy to help you.

===Very Important===

The instructions in this thread have been specifically designed for THIS USER'S MACHINE ONLY . You should not use these instructions to clean your machine. Doing so could cause irreparable damage to your machine. If you need assistance, please start your own thread.


A few things which will make our fix go more smoothly.
  • Please >> DO NOT<< run any scans/tools or other fixes unless I ask you to.
  • Please DO NOT install any software while we are working.
  • Please Do not skip any steps. With some infections skipping a step can be disastrous.
  • If there is something you don't understand or or are unsure of -- please stop and take a moment to ask about it.
  • If you are running P2P filesharing program(s). My recommendation is you uninstall it/them.
  • Remove any cracked/pirated software. I will immediately stop helping you if I discover any.
The most important thing to remember is to be patient. Very seldom can we remove the entire infection in one go. Many of today's infections install other infections and for the most part they do not like to go quietly. :)

Your flash drive is probably infected so I would recommend that you not use it until we get you clean, at which time we can clean it as well.

You also may wish to consider upgrading your AVG to version 8 cents, at some point version 7.5 will no longer be supported (if that has not already happened).

I await a reply. -- SCB :thumbup2:
