A stranger is offering me an auto-run script that will make undisclosed changes to my system configuration.

This looks TOTALLY legit!

Tell us exactly what the autoruns are supposed to do, and how they will do it, and then people will trust you a bit more.

Open source please.

If it is a set of commands in a dos batch file, post it in post. If it is a vbscript, do the same, if it is AutoHotkey instructions, post the source intructions !

If it is open source, we can verify what the program does before we run it.


Or we could even do the instructions ourselves manually.

I'm still in the process of cleaning the autoruns virus from my pc.

Its quite weird - I ran many the antiviruses and anti-malware programs around, like malwarebytes, spyware doctor, trendmicro, eset etc, and although it cleans it up, I see the autorun.inf and other of its henchmen files in the root folder of any shared folders.

I deleted most processes from my startup and registries and it still appears after a while.

I went online to check the solution for cleaning this virus, but there's not much help.

Oh well, its an old PC anyways, and I use it for downloading movies and serials only, so I guess its ok, but if anyone has a cure for this, please let me know.

Very Happy

Well, a lot of virus show the same symptom of autorun.inf.



1. First,open the autorun.inf file in notepad and post here what it says.

2. It will show the name of the virus file that it activates.

3. Then use Task Manager (or better - Process explorer) to kill all the suspicious processes.

4. Delete the files of the virus.

5. Open regedit, find the virus by searching for its name

6. Delete the virus entries from registry

7. Watch the process Explorer (or Task Manger to see if the virus is coming back)

8. If it is, find out the location of the file (only possible in Process Explorer) and kill and delte it.

9. Celebrate Laughing

what exactly do you see? a process, a tray icon or just the autorun.inf?
also, when you download stuff like that... run it in a sandbox.

I ran trendmicro av, and it detected and cleaned the otorun.inf virus.

Of course, I did open the autorun.inf file and saw the processes it ran, and deleted them from the drives and registry, but even after that, it kept occuring with a different system file. really weird.

Anyways, I hope to have cleaned it now.

Any recommendations for a good sandbox ?
I had tried one, but didn't like it.

Preferably one which will tell if the program tries to change system settings or access the internet.

Comodo firewall has one.

I've been using that one for a while.

Hmm .. I guess I'll try that one.

Thanks Marcuzzo. I had used a freeware stand-alone sandbox, not from any company I knew of. Comodo looks promising

i think autorun it means (autorun.inf) and this is one typens of virus.
