Found this "M9K8H6A2.vbs" file (and another 8+ similarly named files) in my hidden files on my flash drive in windows explorer and also "MKH" (manufacturer: unknown, command: c:\Windows\M7K7H6A9) in my msconfig>startup list.

Is it dangerous? I ran Internet Security 2011 and did a full system which didnt find anything suspicious. Kapsersky online scanner found "not-a-virus:RiskTool.VBS.VirusProtection.i". Spybot found nothing.

Also i have a popup window problem that happens every time i insert my usb flash drives. The window initially said "Windows - No disk... Error exception..." but now it says "wscript.exe - No disk... There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive\Device\Harddisk1\DR1... cancel...try again...continue..." It is very hard to get rid of this popup window. The only way to close it is by clicking the buttons many times,seemingly at random. It goes away and then it just pops up again within a minute. If i dont insert a usb flash drive into my pc it doesnt popup. If i remove the flash drive from the usb the popup continues to appear. It is very frustrating!

Are these problems linked/dangerous/fixable?

My OS is Vista Home Premium.

Thanks a lot
