I regularly use memory sticks and and external harddrive. Yesterday when I plugged in the external hard drive, I tried to open the drive in My Computer. I get the following error message. Error loading setup 50045.fon The specified module could not be found. I ran Malwarebytes and it did find a couple of items. I rebooted the computer and same thing. I plugged in a memory stick and it has the same error too. I re-ran MBAM, and it found a few things while scanning the external hard drive and the memory stick. Is this from one of the infections or something else?

I had the same problem. My NOD32 antivirus was able to find the issues and correct the problem. I had to run full scans on both the external and the C drive. This happened on a clean install of XP pro immediately after I plugged the infected External Drive into the PC. NOD32 found 12 items, then it was fine and worked properly with no issue.
