Copy the text between the lines of stars by highlighting and Ctrl + c.

reg.exe delete "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MountPoints2" /f


Start, Run, cmd, OK to bring up a new Command Prompt window. Rightclick and select Paste and the above text should appear. Make sure you got it all and then hit Enter.

Close the Command Prompt window.

Download Flash_Disinfector.exe by sUBs
and save it to your desktop.

* Double-click Flash_Disinfector.exe to run it and follow any prompts that may appear.
* The utility may ask you to insert your flash drive and/or other removable drives. Please do so and allow the utility to clean up those drives as well.
* Wait until it has finished scanning and then exit the program.
* Reboot your computer when done.

Note: Flash_Disinfector will create a hidden folder named autorun.inf in each partition and every USB drive plugged in when you ran it. Don't delete this folder...it will help protect your drives from future infection.

Also download and install install AutoRun Eater v2.5
It will stay resident and prevent USB drives from infecting your PC.
