Have you disabled Autorun? See this tutorial telling you how to do that Autorun.inf Files - Completely Block

What device is the USB? If it's a flash drive or? ... immunize it with Panda USB Vaccination ANTIMALWARE: Panda USB Vaccine - Download FREE - PANDA SECURITY

Can I vaccinate my computer and USB without me being sure whether it's clean or not? I'm not sure if it's clean but Malwarebytes told me it is XD

akitsuki05,

Please do the following...

Download RogueKiller:
http://tigzy.geekstogo.com/roguekiller.php
Select the version that applies to the system (64-bit).
Save to the Desktop.

After closing all windows and browsers, right-click the downloaded RogueKiller file and select: Run as Administrator
At the program console, wait for the Prescan to finish. (Under Status, it says: Prescan finished.)

Press: SCAN

When done, a report opens on the drive: RKreport.txt

Please provide the RKreport.txt (Mode: Scan) in your reply.


Next, please download UsbFix:
http://www.infospyware.com/utiles/usbfix/

It is a Spanish language website, but the program is in English.
To download. press the button that says: Descagar

Right-click the downloaded file and select: Run as Administrator
Connect your External drive when requested.

Press: Listing

When done, the program closes on its own, and a report appears.

Please post the USBFix Listing report in your reply.

cottonball,

I've done the RogueKiller scan and came up with that results. For USBFix, i've done it last night and it got stuck (not responding) at 14% for about 15-30mins? Is that normal? I suddenly stopped it and went to sleep.
Thank you for answering!

See if you can run USBFix in Safe Mode:
  • Restart your computer.
  • When the computer starts, tap the F8 key on the keyboard repeatedly until presented with the Advanced Boot Options menu
  • Using the arrow keys, select: Safe Mode
  • Press the Enter key on your keyboard to boot into Safe Mode

Is this a Dell or Toshiba computer? Looks like a conflict here.

This is a Dell laptop, I don't know what happened in there with that Toshiba conflict. Anyway, I used USBFix but my USBs at home. Here are the results. It's "Clean 3" since I stopped the other 2 halfway. I tried a guinea pig USB and it didn't create shortcuts anymore! Is it safe to say my laptop's clean already?

Oh, I think that Toshiba conflict was when my Hard Drive got a problem and the seller company replaced my Hard Drive. Maybe they replaced it with a Toshiba and didn't told me.
