Re: unable to open drives C,D,E,F....

  1. Download the free tool MoveOnBoot
  2. Open MoveOnBoot
  3. Go to Rename Action -> Rename File
  4. A dialog box will open, select the file. Since these virus files are hidden files , you won’t be able to browse and see it. Please enter enter “C:\protectfile.vbs” in select-file section.
  5. Enter “C:\protectfile.html” in the destination file section. Enter OK.
  6. Similarly repeat steps 2 to 4 for the file “C:\autorun.inf” and rename it to “C:\autorun.html”
  7. Don’t restart your computer. We have set moveonboot to rename the ProtectFile.vbs in just one of the drives.
  8. Repeat step 2 to 5 for each of the drives. For example if you have 4 drives in your computer(C, D, E, F), then you will have to rename “C:\protectfile.vbs”, “D:\protectfile.vbs”, “E:\protectfile.vbs” and “F:\protectfile.vbs” to “C:\protectfile.html”, “D:\protectfile.html”, “E:\protectfile.html” and “F:\protectfile.html” respectively. Similarly rename “autorun.inf” files in all the drives to corresponding “autorun.html” files.
  9. Restart your computer. We have disabled the virus.
  10. Now we will remove them completely.
  11. Open MoveOnBoot again.
  12. Go to Delete Actions -> Delete Files
  13. You won’t be able to browse and reach the files. So click browse and enter “C:\protectfile.html”, “D:\protectfile.html”, “E:\protectfile.html” ,”F:\protectfile.html”, “C:\autorun.html”, “D:\autorun.html”, “E:\autorun.html” and “F:\autorun.html”
  14. Restart your computer.

Hi ,to remove protectfile.vbs from your system
  1. Go to Task manager(Press Ctrl+Alt+Del).
  2. In the Processes tab , Kill the processes : explorer and wscript.exe(if available)
  3. Now go to Applications tab and press new task
  4. Enter cmd .Go to the drive c:\
  5. Type del /f/q/a protectfile.vbs
    and del /f/q/a autorun.inf
  6. Go to c:\windows\system32
    and enter del /f/q/a secureguard.vbs
    Now you have deleted all the infected files in your system
  7. Goto regedit(enter regedit in Run) and search for protectfile.vbs and delete all entries with this name.
  8. Now search for the secureguard.vbs and modify it as in the path del only"c:\windows\system32\secureguard.vbs... and let the other part of the path be there alive..
  9. Restart your system

thats all you are done...!!!!!!!!

your system is /was infected with the script Protectfile.vbs and it might have got deleted that why your drive are asking for them. what you can do just unhide all the hidden files and goto each drive through windows explorer and delete Autorun.inf in them like for eg G:\Autorun.inf , C:\Autorun.inf , E:\Autorun.inf ,D:\Autorun.inf deleted all autorun your drive will open properly

First go to run then write " regedit" that is registry

then find " ctrl+f"

in this box write "mountpoints2" and delete it ......

then again press "ctrl+f" again find mountpoints2 until all these files are not deleted

then you will see your problems is solved................
