Most likely you are infected by an emailworm.

please read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". You may have performed some of these steps already. About half way down are instructions for downloading HijackThis and creating a log.

When you have done that, post a log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. Please include the top portion of the HijackThis log that lists version information. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log here.

After posting a log you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc.) unless advised by a HJT Team member. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

I dont think your system is infected by an email virus..Rather, your infected by a vbs worm. What to do?
Show all your system files..Then explore the drive, if you'll notice a autorun.vbs and a autorun.inf file, delete it! If its used by other program. Use task manager, stop wscript.exe process, then delete it. For the final removal, use regedit or msconfig and delete the RUN at startup value of the program.

That's what Flash Disinfector.exe is used for.

true, and also a renamed MSVBVM60dll dll file is also the cause for the failure of vbs file to operate. A single option to fight vbs viruses. But deleting autorun.inf in any partion that relates to the "cannot find c:\autorun.vbs" will do just fine also...but remember to unhide the hidden files via tools first :thumbsup:
