    There is a thing called CONTROL in my removable drive...
    My ESS definitions are up to date and i scanned with ESS but only detected autorun.inf and did not detected a virus called H:\CONTROL\AutoRun.exe

    When i launched the scan and selected the drive it displayed the virus file but did not detected it.

    Please help me in this issue

    Thank you for the quick response..

    The thing is i cannot upload the file to jotti scnners because,
    when i open the CONTROL folder in my removable drive it just opens control panel.But when launching the scan there is a AutoRun.exe file. And when i am trying to upload to jotti there is nothing to select in the CONTROL folder.

    ya i can format the drive.The data is not vital to me. But the same thing is detected as a virus with other security products.
    I am a serious fan of ESS and recommend it to all of my friends. I just want Eset to trap all the bad guys....

    Open the ESS interface and select 'Tools', (if you can't see it, press Ctrl + M to display advanced mode) select 'Quarantine', then push the 'Quarantine...' button and see if this allows you to browse the contents of the CONTROL folder.

    After i added the thing to Quarantine ESS allowed me to explore CONTROL folder in my computer. So this time i have uploaded it to Jotti and virus total scanners.
    The report is shown below...

    ~Virus Total results removed per Policy.~
