"DCIM.exe" Trojan affecting CF card [CLOSED]

I have recently returned home from travelling and I managed to pick up a trojan on my compact flash card from an internet cafe. The virus renders the card useless in a camera and I am also unable to access the existing images in windows explorer.

I have encountered similar viruses before and they usually copy themselves to any computer the CF card is hooked up to and then propegate themselves by re-copying to any usb storage device (ipods, flash drives etc). Now at home and properly virus-protected, AVG prevents this from happening. Upon accessing the card in Windows Explorer, AVG flags the virus with filename DCIM.exe and the virus type Worm/Generic.GTD.

See attached images for dumps of AVG warning and how contents of the card appear in windows explorer.

The first time AVG flagged this up I tried to heal the problem but all that happens is AVG dumps the .exe file in the virus vault and I still can't access the contents of the DCIM folder.

I have over 1Gb of photos on there so any help would be greatly appreciated!

kind regards

Hi there and sorry for the delay. Could I have an update on your situation and a fresh look at your system

Please download Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) and save it to your Desktop.
  • Close all other windows before proceeding.
  • Double-click on dss.exe and follow the prompts.
  • When it has finished, dss will open two Notepads main.txt and extra.txt -- please copy (CTRL+A and then CTRL+C) and paste (CTRL+V) the contents of main.txt and extra.txt in your next reply.
