Hi. I have windows XP professional system running on my laptop.
I used an infected usb stick and now paying for it. All my folders are creating folder.exe files in every folder making my PC dead slow as it is eating out all the space. It has blocked my going to registry, task manager and also not letting the eset nod32 to update. eset is unable to do any thing.
I downloaded AVG free trial version and it IS able to detect the virus in C:\\WINDOWS\system32\autorun.ini describing it as "virus identified Worm/AutoRunF. " BUT IT IS NOT ABLE TO REMOVE OR CLEAN IT.
I tried many solutions shared on the net but none of them is working. I even tried a very systematically written solution thru combofix on http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix. It generated a log. As suggested on this post, I posted the log on this forum, may be under wrong head and was advised NOT TO POST SUCH LOG.
BUT I still have the problem. Can you pls help me.

I downloaded AVG free trial version

Do you mean antispyware


If the antivirus version this means you would have TWO antivirus programs on the computer which is NOt recommended practice

I guess what you COULD try is a wee nasties-finding ( NOT antivirus)progam called Stinger

it is a small program but packs a heafty punch; it is a stand alone program that needs no up datign epr ce; if you do choose to try it may I suggest ( from experience!) you empty your Temp Internet files folder ; be advised it CAN take some minutes to run , and it is fun to watch it as it finds the bugs and names them!!
