sheshjeepandey,

Click on Start > Run, and type: cmd
Click: OK

At the command prompt, copy/paste this command:

attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.*

Press: Enter

Note: Assumed your pen drive as g:
If not, please replace the letter g with your pen drive letter!

Now, check the files in the pen drive...


Next, please download RogueKiller
(http://tigzy.geekstogo.com/Tools/RogueKiller.exe)
Save it to your Desktop.

Now, close all open programs.

For XP, simply double-click RogueKiller.exe
For Vista/Windows 7, right click the file and select: Run as Administrator

When prompted, type 1 and hit Enter.

An RKreport.txt should appear on your Desktop.

Note: If the program is blocked, do not hesitate to try several times. If it really does not work (it could happen), rename it to winlogon.exe

>>Please post the contents of the >RKreport.txt< in your reply.<<

Note: This tool is first used as a diagnostic (Option #1) to see where the problems are, and then used to take further action based on the results of its report.
