Antivirus found a “INF/Autorun.gen trojan” on any hard drives. Trojans still coming back whenever you cleaned it with antivirus because some major parts are still being left.

Here’s how to solve it.

1. Open the drive that detects a virus.
2. Click Tools in the windows menu
3. Select Folder Option

folder option

4. In the view tab select, “Hidden files and folders”
5. Select the option “Show hidden files and folders”
6. Uncheck the “Hide protected operating system files(Recommended)”
7. Click Apply

In the drive you should see all hidden files. If you can see a hidden “Autorun.inf” and some “XXXX.exe” (XXXX = any file name).

Delete it.

And your done, Tell me if it solve your problem.  🙂

    hi majid, have you seen and clicked the hidden .exe file first when you try this steps? I forgot to mention that i’ve tried this steps on a ‘Flash Drive / External Drive’ that cause an ‘autorun virus’ which keep coming back when we insert/re-insert back the device.
    I believe this will not work on a PC that is already infected with viruses. The best thing to do is get a total security anti-viruses that blocks virus coming in your pc. 🙂

    hi jihan, have you enabled the “show hidden files/folder options” including “hide protected files operating files”? if yes go thru your usb flash disk and find the hidden files on it. the default hidden files on your drive must have only the “recycler” and “system volume info” other than that must be deleted. Unless your drive has an autorun information like the transcend brand something etc.. You should take care of the other hidden files if there is, like xxxx.inf / xxxxx.exe / xxxxx.sys / xxxxx.ini.

    Please take note that, even if you have cleaned your usb drive but you still continue to insert it in a infected computer, the virus will always come back..
