Rootkit activity

No anomalies have been detected.

Propagation

A worm can spread via removable drives. It writes its executable and creates "autorun.inf" scripts on all removable drives. The autorun script will execute the Virus's file once a user opens a drive's folder in Windows Explorer.


Remove it with Ad-Aware

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


Manual removal*
