I've read the forums, just browsing around reading about viruses.
Never thought I'd have a virus that wouldn't be taken care of with a system reformat.
Apparently I have a Win32/Peerfrag.EU worm. Though I don't mind actually reformatting my system at this point, this worm has attacked all of my portable media, i.e flash drives, iPods, etc.
This worm leaves an autorun.inf file in every removable disk I own, and if you try to modify or delete it, access is denied.
I have ESET NOD32, and the best it can do is attempt to delete the file unsuccessfully and ask to reboot.
Some basic information:
Running Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit
Using Windows Firewall along with NOD32 for realtime protection
NOD32 has "successfully" cleaned 72 attacks by this worm
If you would be so kind, please help me in this matter so I can safely reformat.
