Its really p***ing me off (inform.exe)

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

i don't know whether you had this problem or not. But i am really p***ed off with this, actually i have a 160 GB SATA USB hard drive (laptop) . I have 4 drives. and since i have installed Vista(i didn't notice in XP) there are some files automaticallly created in all the USB drives. and as soon as i double click the drive it opens up in another window not in the same window.

1.I have formatted the Drives and deleted the files and folders, I don't know how many times..

2.ran a virus scan for the whole Hard drive. (symantec Coporate)

3.ran spyware scan as well.. tried everything.. (built In Defender)

the files and folders are as follows:

folder $lcldata$

folder msrm

folder NT.Config

file AAUTORUN.INF

file inform.exe

file idupver.txt

and all these are system files.

attached is the screenshot of one of the drives.

i have also opened the autorun.inf file at top.

It spreads via removable drives and cameras, so beware.

:o That should server me as a reason NOT to lend my USB drive to anyone!

I personally use Avast antivirus with Windows Defender, and they keep me going just fine.
