Sorry, i missed out the part that you were looking for troy, the link is: http://www.mwebng.net/download/search.php?url=troy.zip

but i described in an earlier thread. . .i am not sure where that thread is now. . .

k, found it:: The original thread where i discussed the troy app in detail is : http://www.nairaland.com/nigeria/topic-240977.0.html

And,i assumed i also mentioned somewhere that it can help sort out that problem of showing open with, when you have removed a trojan

from your flash drive with all these them antiviruses.

The most effective way to remove the virus is thru the use of command prompt (cmd). But u need to know the commands involved in removing unwanted files ur flash disk. Do u stay in Abuja? i could help.

go to control panel and double click autoplay

u'll see use autoplay for all media devices, unchek that if u dont want to go thru the whole wahala of reading all the others to decide which one u shld uncheck(at least thats wot i did)

and to restart explorer

start task manager wiv ctrl+shift+esc(or any of the other ways u kno. . . thats jst the fasted)

fo to file>new type in explorer , pronto u're bak(a restart woulda solved it but this ways faster)

anything else?

@ Netotse,

Thanks for the info, That seem pretty easy to go by, Please how do I disable Auto Run?I tried to search it and it says I'll use "cmd" with the command /d but it didnt work.Or will I be able to see where to disable it when I insert the Flash,

Please advise before I proceed.And if I end Explorer how will I start it again, Will a system restart fix that?.Thanks.

was going to recommend that but from the original post i figured it would be too much for the guy to handle!

@OP if u have winrar u can plug the flash in(make sure autorun is disabled and if that annoying pop up asking wot to do comes up click dont do anything) then open winrar and navigate to the flash u shld be able to see all foreign programs, delete them from inside winrar and erthing shld be ok

to be extra safe u can open winrar then after that end explorer from taskmanager

use linux, windows programs don't work on it; you can download some livecd like puppylinux or damnsmalllinux (dsl)

both of which are under 100mb; the latest version of puppy linux is about (+/-)90mb but you can get older versions which

are a little over 50mb, dsl too is about 50mb download the iso and burn to disk as an image then boot from the cd; you can even

remove the cd after booting (with puppy by default, with dsl you have to specify some boot option)
