A Very Good Day to You.

Thank you for having a look at this thread and at my Problem.


I have a Clevo D900F Laptop that has the following details :-

Setup - Clevo D900F
Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit
6 Gig Ram
i7 2.66 Ghz Cpu
x1 500 Gig Western Digital 2.5" Hard Disk
x1 500 Gig Western Digital 2.5" Hard Disk
x1 250 Gig Western Digital 2.5" Hard Disk

Firmware for Laptop is flashed to the latest

I am running
1) Comodo Firewall
2) Emsisoft Anti-Malware
3) Avira Antivirus
4) Malware Bytes Anti-Malware

Now my problem started here -

About a week ago, I plug in a USB Flash drive into my system. At first my system did not detected anything. But after that day at random Emsisoft Anti-Malware will Pop up a message that I got the Worm.Autorun.!iK virus.

For some reason, Emsisoft will say the virus is found in the temp guarantine folder of Avira which is some tmp file.

When I go to the guarantine folder of Avira I find no such tmp file.

And both Avira and Emsisoft does not show where the virus originates from.

I have gotten virus before on my system, at these times, both Avira and Emsisoft will show the file that originates the virus.

I can also find this file being quarantine in the quarantine folder.

But for this Worm.Autorun.!iK virus, I absolutely cannot find out where the virus is coming from.

There is nothing in the quarantine folder and both Avira and Emsisoft does not say where the Virus originates from.

The virus pops up at random too.



What I have done so far :-

I have deleted all the contents of my 3 internal hard disks.

Install linux onto one of the hard disk. and use True Crypt to do a whole disk encryption and format of all the hard disks.

I then restore from a previous backup that I have on another external hard disk that was created before I plug the USB Drive.

For some reason, I have no data at all in my laptop, only the linux partition and the Windows 7 partition that was recovered from a back up that was done before I plug in the USB Drive - For some reason I still get the Worm message popping up.

Can someone please help me ?


Thank You.
