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
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.<<
