To find and delete malicious files using the Windows Find or Search utility

Follow the instructions for your operating system:
Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000
Click Start, point to Find or Search, and then click Files or Folders.
Make sure that "Look in" is set to (C:) and that "Include subfolders" is checked.
In the "Named" or "Search for..." box, type, or copy and paste, the file name, autorun.inf.
Click Find Now or Search Now.
Delete any files called autorun.inf that are located in the root folder.

Note: The only 'autorun.inf' that needs to be deleted is located in the root folder, which is c:\, d:\, and so on. Any 'autorun.inf' files found in subfolders do not need to be deleted.


Windows XP
Click Start > Search.
Click All files and folders.
In the "All or part of the file name" box, type, or copy and paste, the file name autorun.inf.
Verify that "Look in" is set to "Local Hard Drives" or to (C:).
Click More advanced options.
Check Search system folders.
Check Search subfolders.
Click Search.
Delete any files called autorun.inf that are located in the root folder.

Note: The only 'autorun.inf' that needs to be deleted is located in the root folder, which is c:\, d:\, and so on. Any 'autorun.inf' files found in subdirectories do not need to be deleted.
