Try to scan your XP system using online scanner by Trend Micro:
See if it can identify the virus.
Unplug the USB Flash Drive.
If you can install another security tool, try to install AVG Anti-Spyware (free from Grisoft), http://free.grisoft.com
Update then run a scan.
Good day to all. I have a virus type program that arrived in a usb flash drive and infected all my home network of win xp machines.
on boot it gives a long story in russian type letters on the wall paper.
Stays visible for a few minutes and disappears.
On shut down , a small window opens the words "usb toy" are at the left and to the right " in memory of ""russian type words"
stays present for 1 minute, any attempt to kill it will cancel the shut down and re start the one minute timer.
Any ideas as to how to identify it are welcome. Norton anti virus did not identify this.
Thaks for the help.
