Strange Virus

  1. Hi all,
    I have a strange virus in My PC...
    It came through infected Memory Card.
    In Symbians like Nokia 6600, 7610, 3650, 6680 etc. A commonly spread virus is ComWarrior which makes cell phones hanged.. and etc....
    but if you attach their Memory Card with PC via Card Reader/Writer then I would be like this...

    In every folder say "MyFolder" their would be an exe file named "MyFolder.exe" and its Icon would like folder Icon. as in XP and 98 known files dont show extentions so common person would take it as another folder... and would double click it and it would spread in all computer and then in every folder there would be an exe file with folder's name like in my documents there would be "my documents.exe" and so on...
    the first side effect would be that it will no longer allow you to see "Hidden And System Files" as in Tools menu (for xp) and View (for 98) wont show this option.
    and sooner or later the pc would start to hang and restart...
    Pleas help...

    Very Important: Before deciding whether you should clean or reformat your system, go and read this thread HERE and decide what it is you want to do.

    If after reading the above, you wish to clean your system, do the following.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Also, let me know the results of the AVG Antirootkit scan.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
