  1. When I click my C Drive, it comes up with Windows Cannot find "Recycler\S-5-6-59-100002786-100009641-9241.com", it won't let me into my C Drive. Anyone know how to get rid of this???? I think it is on from my USB Flash Drive, which I went to Best Buy and the Geek Squad guy told me to reformat it which I did, and now this is coming back... HELP!!!! Happy Valentine's Day!

    Anybody know anything about this virus? Recycler.exe

    thanks.

    When I click my C Drive, it comes up with recycler - Fixed

    I had the same symptoms after sustaining a malware attack and this C: drive-opening irritation persisted after its removal. I solved this autorun.inf misdirection easily with the little freeware application, Autorun Eater 2.3, by Old McDonald. Just google "Autorun Eater" and you'll find some free downloads on the net.


    Goats Rule! Have a nice week.

    Do the TechSpot 8 steps: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic58138.html

    Skip no steps (do not install another virus scanner if you already have one, ask me before installing a Firewall).

    Most importantly update MalwareBytes and SuperAntiSpyware!
