Start with the usual cure.
Remove all BHOs from the system. What's a BHO? See google.
What do I use to remove them all? I use HIJACKTHIS.
thanks, wait for the advanced cure
Thanks Bob. I know what you mean. I have tried similar tools, but failed. After tried the tool you mentioned, it is the same. Maybe the principle is the same, but the tools failed to find it/them out. Thanks, anyway.
Look at the AUTORUN clue.
Also post that hijackthis for a peek under the hood. Sometimes I see the other item.
I had this problem once,
Funnily enough I tried doing the following:
Boot your system in Safemode
Open cmd (start, run, cmd).
Type "c:" and then press enter.
Type "attrib" -H -R -S autorun.inf and then press enter.
"attrib -H -R -S autorun.inf"
appreciate, and more details
Thanks Maddogmcree. As for as I know this command is used for adding/getting rid of the file attribute of hidden, read-only and system. How could I use this command to solve this problem, would you please say more clearly? Thanks.
There might be a hidden ...
autorun.inf file on your c:-drive that causes this problem. This command would make it visible, so you could delete it.
I'd add a backslash to be sure of the location in the root.
attrib -h -r -s \autorun.inf
Thanks for the update.
