I have got AutoIT virus on my system. I cannot shutdown my PC bcoz of this. An exe, AutoITV3.exe executes everytime I shutdown. My TaskManager is disabled. I have loaded Win XP. Also I have Symantec Antivirus. Here also the Auto-protect gets disabled which I guess is bcoz of this virus. How do i remove it? Any anti-virus catering to this virus?
I can't answer directly, but I know that Symantec maintains a detailed library of virus-specific articles at it's web site... including removal information for some that can't be removed automatically with Symantec Antivirus. Try looking there, if you don't get a better response here.
