  1. Click (here) to download and install Ad-Aware Free Antivirus.
  2. Update the definition files.
  3. Run a full scan of your computer.

  2. Delete the original Backdoor file.
  3. Delete or disinfect the following files created/modified by the Backdoor:

    %Documents and Settings%\%current user%\Cookies\index.dat (964 bytes)
    %Documents and Settings%\%current user%\Cookies\Current_User@whatismyipaddress[1].txt (206 bytes)

  4. Delete the following value(s) in the autorun key (How to Work with System Registry):

    [HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
    "quynoure" = "%System%\hiwagomyt.exe"

  5. Clean the Temporary Internet Files folder, which may contain infected files (How to clean Temporary Internet Files folder).
  6. Find and delete all copies of the worm's file together with "autorun.inf" scripts on removable drives.
