Hi,

 

I have newfolder.exe virus in external drive of my android phone. It doesn't allow me to delete any data on it. Whatever I delete, reappears again.

 

I have Microsoft Security Essentials installed on my Windows 7 machine. As soon I connect my phone to USB mass storage it detects and delete it. But then again appears if I disconnect from PC.

 

I am able to open task manager,registry editor etc. (I read generally this virus doesn't allow to open these things.) I am not able to see any autorun.inf file on that external drive. I tried to format the drive two-three times. On PC it shows like drive is empty, but as soon as I connect it my phone all data reappears. That microsd card is 7 GB and 5GB is occupied. Tried to scan the android using avg and avast scanner available from Google Play Store.

 

Any thing else I need to do. Not able to figure out how to solve this issue.

 

Thanks,

Jay
