While I was repairing the machine and installing programs from my emergency toolkit, the cd burning wizard was kindly informing me that i had files ready to be copied to a disc. A quick reveal of hidden files revealed an autorun.inf and a companion autorun.exe file awaiting my permission to copy onto my rescue disc.... needless to say that request was strongly denied.... As if!
Anyway, now that everything has been cleaned up to my satisfaction (none of the top freeware anti-spyware apps or AVG report anything untoward), I am still left with the cd burning balloon popping up at each log-on. The autoexec.exe file has gone (taken care of by AVG I assume) but the .inf remains.
I am assuming that this is due to some orphaned registry file somewhere or other which is not being picked up as it is not in itself malicious as it has no payload.
My question is this: Can anyone recommend another scanner or tool which I could use to get rid of this latent bug? Or perhaps I can post a log from HJT or some sort of reg analysis in here for review and advice?
