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 ...

What is autoit?

Autoit is a Win Worm 32


It Contains 1 Folder 2 Files

It'll store in your System Folder and

The Path is Like this in your External Drives ...

CONTROL\ Autorun.exe
CONTROL\ Desktop.inf

When Ever you click on that Folder .. you 'll get Control Panel Window

1). Open Command Prompt

RUN > cmd > Enter

2). Change Command Prompt to your External Drive

C:\ X: [X: is your Ext.Drive Letter]
