Hi,

Recently I plugged a usb thumbdrive into a PC that I believe to be infected with this autorun.inf. I can see these two files: autorun.inf and Recycled.scr in C:\ which were never there before. Although I have deleted these two files from the C: and the infected thumbdrive but it reappears in any usb thumbdrives that I plug into my laptop. I did a search for files with .scr. I saw this file "Recycled.scr" in C:/Program Files/Common Files/Microsoft Shared/MSInfo/ folder. Is this a legit file?

I ran the Combofix recommended by a friend and was asked to post the log here. I then realized that I should have shut down the antivirus but I didnt. Hopefully I didnt foul up too much. I also use Flash Disinfector.

Right now when I plug in a usb thumbdrive, I dont see the two files at all. Not sure if that did the trick. Question is: has the trojan/malware/spyware been rid of?

Thanks,
KGT
