Thank you
ATTRIB -H -S -R c:\Autorun.inf
if the file is found in the Drive then give.
DEL c:\Autorun.inf.
similarly you can do it for all adding d:\ or e:\
& if you dont want this trouble again just write MKDIR c:\autorun.inf for each drive, this will create folder so that virus can't attack again if it already exist.

That's standard Windows behavior. Right click and choose "Explore" that may be the screen you want.
