Could you provide more details, full names of files etc, a log would be even better?

Sorry about losing you, we have seen so many infections coming thru here in the last few weeks, your last post dropped off the bottom of my list, when you PM's me I had forgotten your name even.

Your infections are just Kasp finding vulnerabilities in your programs and giving you links for updating them. These may need to be done. I don't know anything more than that?

Please 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.
  • Hold down the Shift key when inserting the drive until Windows detects it to keep autorun.inf from executing if it is present.
  • Wait until it has finished scanning and then exit the program.
  • Reboot your computer when done.
Note: As part of its routine, Flash_Disinfector will create a hidden folder named autorun.inf in each partition and every USB drive that was plugged in when you ran it. Do not delete this folder...it will help protect your drives from future infection by keeping the autorun file from being installed on the root drive and running other malicious files.


If you followed these directions what did flash disinfector say about your usb drive?
Chewy

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Hello, buct.

I merged the last topic you started, with your original topic.
Starting 2 topics, about the same problem, is called double posting, and is not allowed on this board.
Please keep all of your replies in this one topic.
The members helping you, will be looking for your responses to their questions, in the topic they replied to.
Posting it elsewhere, will cause a delay in the help you receive, and neither one of us, wants that. :thumbsup:
When you start several topics, for the same problem, it becomes very confusing to follow, for all of those involved.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
