    Search for autorun.inf file in the root of all drives (like c:\autorun.inf, d:\autorun.inf, etc.). It should be HIDDEN ;)
    If u find it, delete the file :)

    A hard way is

    start >> run >> regedit

    backup ur regedit by clicking file>export in regedit

    Then Open this key with regedit:

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MountP oints2\

    delete anything will look like this ---> (eg. {6f745f47-6814-11db-940b-00138f7c0a44} )
    u will find it under the mountpoints
    leave the drivers letters only, in the list
    BE SURE TO SAVE THE REGISTRY FIRST.
    Plz rep if works:D

    My system was also infected by the same trojan and Kaspersky Detected that..
    I hav also deleted the files autorun.inf from all the drives..
    but the options Autoplay and Search are still there..
    Is there anyway to remove them??
    I cant open my drive by rite clicking :(








    Ok i hav got the answer..
    Software's name is TrueSword 4..
    one can download this software for automatic editing of the registry so that options like autoplay and search can b removed and one can open the drive by double clicking. :)
