This post is to address the infection of the NoooH worm that no antivirus, antispyware or any other method has been succesful in finding or removing it so here goes.......

I found this on an Arabic Forum

Much respect to JuSt+CuSe!!!!!!!

Here is the translation:

1- Go into windows safe mode

2- Don't go into any harddrives ........

open control panel>>>>folder options
uncheck: Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)

3- Now RIGHT-CLICK on c:\ drive DOOOOO NOT DOUBLE CLICK!!!!!!!!!!!
select: open

you will find: sys
delete them

Then go into c:\windows\web

you will find: sys
delete it

Now RIGHT-CLICK on d:\ drive DOOOOO NOT DOUBLE CLICK!!!!!!!!!!!
select: open

you will find: sys
delete them

repeat for all drives


4- Enter Start>>Run>> gpedit.msc

This will get you into group policy

Then: User config>>>> administrative templates>>>>> system
Then: Ctrl +Alt+Del options

Right click on each of the 4 choices and choose: properties

In properties: choose: disable...

Then go back and you will find: prevent access to registry editing tools

Your computer is healed

Note: This worm is transmitted through flash drives and the like so plug in your flash drive

AND RIGHT-CLICK>>>>>open DOOOOOOOOOOO NOT DOUBLECLICK or you go back to step 1

you will find: sys

Delete them

Your flash drive is healed

Enjoy people :thumbsup:
