Windows cannot find RECYCLER virus and worm

I have this error message whenever I try to open folders on my computer. It says “Windows cannot find .\recycler\recycler\autorun.ex­e” . This problem have already spread on our entire computer networks, desktop and laptops, even on USB drives. The worm spreads so fast that it has infected all machined in just an hour. Please help me remove this thing. Thanks

    I pride myself in virus and spyware removal abilities to some degree and this damn thing stumped me. The error was comign from a partition on a secondary drive and not a USB drive so it works on those situations also.

    From standard AV to rootkit scans to Autorun Eater to Unlocker I was failing all over.

    One thing I didnt’ try was a CMD removal process which may have worked since I knew which file it was.

    Anyway this worked like a charm and I am very grateful.

    *stands and applauds* Webmaster, THANKS A LOT. Don’t know what it did, but it got rid of the virus.

    I had to format my PC to fix everything and my 320gb external drive had the problem also. Would of killed me if I lost what’s on it.

    Much appreciated. Highly recommended for a quick, easy and extremely cheap fix. =D

    I found Flash Disinfector some weeks back and used it to ‘neutralise’ all my drives. What a life saver it has been! However, my Avira anti-virus keeps telling me that it contains a recognition pattern of WORM/Generic.4084. Does anyone know if this is anything to worry about?

    It seems like the link does not work anymore. Can anybody send me the program or give me another download link?

    this really works! and if anyone is wondering about the autorun.inf folder left on the drives i found this at

    “Note: Flash_Disinfector will create a hidden file named autorun.inf in each partition and every USB drive plugged in when you ran it. Don’t delete this folder. It will help protect your drives from future infection.”

  45. Manish

    Autorun eater works

  46. Manny

    Whoever you are WEBMASTER, you’re the greatest. Your suggestion to use flash-disinfector was excellent & tremendous. Keep up the good work. Bow to the master. THANK YOU!
