Hey everybody. I think my family's laptop might have a recycle.exe infection. It has the folder "RECYCLER" in the C:/ Drive, but honestly, I don't know if the folder is a virus or not.
Why I think I'm infected with Recycle.exe:
I was taking some photos with a digital camera and wanted to put some on the hard drive. I inserted it, then when I opened the SD card, I saw Recycle.exe on there for about 5 seconds, then it disappered. I'm pretty sure it is in the hard drive now as autorun files made it go somewhere. (I think)
When I inserted the card, Norton Antivirus (2009) said that it detected a W32.SillyFDC. I don't know if it was from the SD card or it just came from somewhere other than that.
After that happened I removed the SD card and installed the free version of Malwarebytes. I did a quick scan with it and it found 3 viruses, 2 of them were autorun files.
So, summing this up, my main questions are:
-How do I remove recycle.exe/Recycler folder?
-How can I rid the SD card of the virus? (without formatting it?)
Keep in mind that we have tried to remove RECYCLER before several times but it just kept popping back up.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as this entire recycler thing has been going on for a while and it is annoying us all.
