Thank you
Hello,

Try this 1

Follow all the steps given below

1) Disable the "Autoplay" feature. Click on the below link "Disable Autoplay",

and download the file --> Double-click on it and follow the instructions.

Disable Autoplay

2) Disable the "Autorun.inf". Click on the below link and follow the instructions.

First backup your registry. Click on Start --> Run --> Type regedt32 and press

Enter. "Registry Editor" will be opened.

( If you are using Windows 7, Start --> In search bar--> Type regedt32 and press

Enter.)

Now backup your registry by going to "File --> Export" --> Save the file with any

name in your desired location.

Copy the text starting from "REGEDIT4" upto @="@SYS:DoesNotExist"

REGEDIT4      
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\IniFileMapping\Autorun.inf]      
@="@SYS:DoesNotExist"  

Open a "Notepad" --> Paste it --> Save the file as fix.reg

Note: Don't forget the extension "reg"

Now double-click on the fix.reg file and then click on "Yes" to merge it,

[Note : After following the above instructions, whenever you place any autoplay

CD\DVD all you have to do is go to "My Computer" --> Open the CD\DVD drive

--> You have to double-click on the setup file.]

3) Click on the below link and download the file "AutorunExterminator"

http://ccm.net/download/download-11613-autorun-exterminator

Extract it --> Double-click on "AutorunExterminator" --> Plug your Pen drive

now. This will remove the autorun.inf files from drives and and also from your

Pen drive.

[Note : AutorunExterminator need Dot Net Framework. If its not installed in

your laptop then click on the below hyperlink ".NET Framework" and download it

.NET Framework

4) Click on "Start" -->Run --> Type cmd and press Enter.

[If you are using "Windows 7" then click on Start --> In search box, type cmd.

When the cmd appears in the search list, right-click on it and select "Run as

administrator".]

"Command Prompt" will be opened. Now enter the below command.

Here I assume your pen drive letter as G:

Enter this command.

attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.*

You can copy the above command --> Right-click in the Command Prompt and

paste it.

Note : Replace the letter g with your pen drive letter.

Now check for your files in Pen Drive.

5) Download the applications from the below hyperlinks.

Rkill

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free

Run the rkill which will terminate the malicious processes. Wait for the process to

get completed. Then, install the "Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free", update it and

perform "Full Scan".

Good Luck.
