So a friend of mine has a couple of issues. He called me to rid him of the Thinkpoint Virus. I did with the help of Bleeping Computer.....Next day, he called and had XP antivirus 2011 causing him new problems. Got rid of that. (Rkill and malwarebytes)BUT, now that those pests are gone, his Avira Antivirus always pops up with the message D:\autorun.inf has been blocked. Hey good, the antivirus is working, so I told him that this way he knows his antivirus is working and is a constant reminder to keep it updated and running this time....hahaha. Well, since he has lived through it for a week now, I thought I may get rid of the pest for him. HELP. "D" from what I can see must be a partition whereas someone put in something called "recovery" and advises not to change any files. As I am unsure if his professional computer tech may have done this for him, I didn't go any further into it. Now I am wondering if this was installed as part of a package of infection(s) that he had with thinkpoint and XP Antivirus 2011. Any ideas, thoughts, and help would be greatly appreciated. I originally thought "D" was an external drive or something, but he doesn't have anything connected or plugged in. Led me to believe it to be a partition?
