How to Detect Autorun Virus

Post by Admin on 6th June 2009, 1:32 pm

Open the Command Prompt by typing 'cmd' in the run box in start menu. In the command prompt type the infected drive letter,
eg. J:/
and press enter. Now type dir /w/a and press enter.

This will display a list of the files in the pen drive. Check whether the following files are there or not

Autorun.inf
Ravmon.exe
New Folder.exe
svchost.exe
Heap41a


or any other exe file which may be suspicious.

If any of the above files are there, then probably the USB drive is infected. In command prompt type attrib -r -a -s -h *.* and press enter. This will remove the Read Only, Archive, System and hidden file attribute from all the files. Now just delete the files using the command del filename, eg.del Ravmon.exe. Delete all the files that are suspicious. To be on a safer side, just scan the USB drive with an anti virus program to check whether it is free of virus or not. Now remove the drive and plug it again.
