Hey guys I got infected with an autorun.inf on my usb and i cant figure out how to remove it. Avast keeps reporting that im infected with BV:AutoRun-AG [Wrm] , i keep choosing to delet it or move to chest and it keeps recreating it self. So i found out how to open the file inorder to see what other files it executes and this is what it showed:

action=Open folder to view files

I was following a tutorial for how to manually remove it and it said to follow these steps:

- Type d: (This is the drive letter of USB. It can be e: or f: defending on how many hard disk or cd drive is installed)
- Type attrib -h -r -s autorun.inf
- Type “edit autorun.inf” it will open DOS Editor and display contents as follows
Take note on the file that it called to open (in above example it is file.exe)

10. Exit DOS Editor and return to command prompt, D:\>
11. Delete the file that was called to open on DOS Editor
- Type del /f /a file.exe

12. Delete autorun.inf file
- Type del /f /a autorun.inf

i did those but i cant delet the autorun.exe from the looks. Im probably doing this all wrong and any help you guys can give would be greatly appreciated. Also iv tried using autorun virus remover and that just deleted the file like avast would.
Im running on windows 7, help please anyone :thumbsup:

Theres a word filter on the forums and for the part where it says

change bleep to the N word

Download and Run FlashDisinfector

You may have a flash drive infection. These worms travel through your portable drives. If they have been connected to other machines, they may now be infected.
  • 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.
    Note: Some security programs will flag Flash_Disinfector as being some sort of malware, you can safely ignore these warnings
  • The utility may ask you to insert your flash drive and/or other removable drives including your mobile phone. Please do so and allow the utility to clean up those drives as well.
  • Wait until it has finished scanning and then exit the program.
  • Reboot your computer when done.
Note: Flash_Disinfector will create a hidden folder named autorun.inf in each partition and every USB drive plugged in when you ran it. Don't delete this folder. It will help protect your drives from future infection.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
