Thank you
Hi, I think merely removing the autorun.inf would not resolve your issue. Autorun.inf files come with an associated file which could be the real virus. Anyway, you could open with notepad the autorun.inf file to check exactly what file that autorun.inf is actually running.

Or if you use command prompt, locate the location of the autorun.inf. Then rename it first, say, autorun.txt and read it.

To remove the autorun.inf, I posted a reply containing a link for an application I use in removing it.

first run your system in safe mode, then go to your my computer properties and enable the system restore function.
then restart your computer and run in command prompt mode. in the command mode type the following.
ATTRIB Autorun.inf -H -S -R.
if the file is found in the Drive then give.
DEL Autorun.inf.
<similarly you can do it for all drives. but you have to restart your system for each drive.>
wat if the fil is not found

Thank you

I would ask you to try and delete the viruses(autorun.inf) using cmd, try to use the commands to delete the viruses

if that doesn't work then you'll have download a third party application called autorun eater.exe.It really did great thing for me.

Something else is that after autrun eater detects an autorun it will tend to delete if it doesnt succed then you will have do download unlocker.exe which will unload any thread that is locking the autorun from being deleted.

Have a nice day and Enjoy!!!!!!!

Thank you
Thank you
Autorun is as it says. It fires up with your system. You can't delete it because the system believes that it is using it. run a program called UNDLL and search for the file you wish to delete in both prefetch and system32. Select the file and delete it. UNDLL doesn't care if windows is using the file. Be careful in that you choose the right file or .exe or whatever.
