12. I encountered the autorun.inf virus recently on all three of my flash drives and it was a
bugger to remove. I spent (literally) hours on Command Prompt trying to get rid of the ASHR on it. So I finally typed "edit e:\autorun.inf". I found that there was something called

TATA Isaac F.

"RECYCLER\INFO.exe" that was re-SHR-ing autorun.inf every time that I un-SHR'd it. So, I bagan work on un-SHR-ing RECYCLER\INFO.exe. I would un-SHR it, but when I typed "del e:\recycler\info.exe" it would tell me the file was not found. I was pretty PO'd at this point, so I quit. Then today I had an idea. Macintosh computers (however lousy they may be) do not have the 'SH' possibility; so, I plugged in my flash drives and the autorun.inf and RECYCLER files popped right up. I deleted autorun.inf with ease, but it wouldn't let me delete RECYCLER. I deleted its contents. I then plugged my flash drives back in the PC. IT WAS BACK!! So, I moved back to the mac and deleted autorun.inf and RECYCLER's contents again, but this time I made a file named "autorun.inf" and files inside RECYCLER named "desktop.ini" and "info.exe". I plugged my flash drives into the PC, the virus was gone because there were files by their name already existing, so they could not remake themselves by their appointed name. My problem was solved. So here are the steps: 1. Plug your infected flash drive into a Macintosh System 2. Delete autorun.inf and the files in RECYCLER or whatever your re-shr-er file is 3. Make files with the deleted files' names in the same spots the original files were located (i.e. if the original virus path was f:\RECYCLER\ you would put the file with the virus' name in RECYCLER in drive f) 4. Your problem is solved!

13. You dont need an antivirus to remove it

(the same names ). because the virus hides your folders and creates the EXE files which have the same names as your folders.

So you need to know which one is your folder and which one is the virus. to know this, go to: 5- Tools ----> Folder Options ----> View ----> unchecked "Hide extensions for known file types" ---> Apply ---> OK. Now you will see the folder with extension ".EXE", this is virus, so don't open it. can open the folders without any extension by double click on it, it is your real folder. you

17. Use the InfBlocker, pendrive antivirus:

It is cruel to name a virus after an actual important file. The real file, not the virus is created for removable media like cd's, dvd's, flash drives and external hdds. The file in question will autostart a particular file or program once the disc is inserted or the drive is connected. So particularly thats why you might see a popup window when you insert a game disc like Bioshock and such. You can create one yourself. Take a blank disc and make your own webpage or txt file and save it to it. Then create an autorun.inf file under your text editor "remember to save as plain text." First line would be "[autorun]" without the quotes. The second line would be "open=abc123" without the quotes, where abc123 is the actual file name save file to the disc or flash drive. Once both files are saved to such drive. Safely remove the disc or drive and then put it back in / plugged back in. And the computer either should open the file automatically or have a prompt that such and such would like to open.
