You might want to try:
  1. Control Panel->Folder Options->View and check on "Show Hidden File" and uncheck on "Hide Protected operating system files"
  2. Open each partition and check if there is a hidden file called "autorun.inf". If there is, right click and select edit to find out what it does, take appropriate action then delete it.

I used different tools to remove it, I don't remember which one exactly did it, but I think this one. but you'd better post your problem in the security forum.

[h=2]Download the eScanAV Anti-Virus Toolkit (MWAV)
http://www.escanav.com/english/conte...dwn&type=alter
Save the file to your desktop.
Right click run as administrator.
A new icon will appear on your desktop.
Right click run as administrator on new icon.
Click on the update tab.

Once you have updated the program, make sure the settings are the same as the picture below.

Once you have made sure the settings match the picture, hit the Scan & Clean button.
Upon scan completion, click View Log.

Copy and paste entire log into your next reply.
Note: Reboot if needed to remove infections.[/h]​
