    Hallo,
    I'm experiencing a very wierd virus that is creating a RECYCLER FOLDER on the root directory of my Pc, This recycler folder is having similar icon like that of recycle bin and when i open it, has a info.exe and desktop.ini. When i delete it, disappear for a while and then pop-up again now with autorun.inf file.
    Any help i will appreciate.

    The RECYCLER folder is the Recycle Bin, so its normal to have that folder in the root of your drive.

    INFO.exe is a virus. It overrides the default action for the drive. Instead of opening the drive, it will execute the virus. The virus places itself in the startup folder and tries to infect more drives. If you see ctfmon.exe under the Task Manager then you probably have the virus. One ctfmon.exe is legit, the other is the virus. It doesn't seem to be dangerous, it only seems to want to spread. This script should get rid of it, but use it at your own risk. Just save this into a batch file (something.bat) and run it on the root (I:\) of the drive that is infected.

    @echo off
    attrib -r -s -h *.*
    del autorun.inf
    cd Recycled
    attrib -r -s -h *.*
    del INFO2
    del desktop.ini
    del ctfmon.exe
    cd Recycled
    attrib -r -s -h *.*
    del ctfmon.exe
    cd ..
    rmdir Recycled
    cd ..
    attrib -r -s -h Recycled
    rmdir Recycled



    Best regards,
