View Full Version : Virus - cannot acess 2nd partition

11-01-2009, 03:03 PM
It says the following:

D:\ is not accessible.
The maximum number of secrets that may be stored in a single system has been exceeded.

Going into safe mode D: say it is not formatted, do you want to format.

I just want to get 2 excel files off it.
Avast didn't help. It did say virus of "autorun.inf" on C: and D:
Hackthis log appears to be clean now, before it had IP numbers on a few lines.

Possible :dogeye:

It sounds like one of those removable drive viruses, since its got autorun.inf on it. This doesnt normally exist on hdd's.

Connect it to a working computer and scan it

Or get trojan remover below update it then scan. Then select all options under utilities

Then scan the partition with it

You got spyware on the drives - that autorun shouldn't be there - but dont simply go deleting it.

get malwarebytes , spyware terminator from my sig - install and do full system scans.

Also post back the Hijack log.

if the above mentioned antimalware doest fix it, get Combofix (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix) and run that. BUT malware bytes and spyware terminator should fix it.

It works, whatever you've got is probably stopping / blocking it

Can agree with Speedy - works fine. - Just tried it.

if none of the above works try this and its only for removable device virus speedy was talking about

reboot pc
safe or normal mode ok

this will activate the virus and unless you know the process name ( to stop the virus process) you will not be able to do anything with it ie delete it

go to a cmd prompt type in the following cmds

C: [takes you to root of the drive you are working on]

attrib - s -h autorun.inf
type autorun.inf

you will then get the contents of the autorun.inf, look for the exe, vbs file it launches then back to the cmd prompt type in

attrib - s -h [name of exe or vbs file id'ed earlier]
del autorun.inf
del [name of file id'ed earlier]

look for anything else suspect that may have a h or s (hidden or system) attribute if you post the file names back here someone well confirm yes or no to delete.

repeat for other drives /partitions
this need to be done in a cmd line enviroment as it does not activate the autorun command but opening your drive by double clicking on does

Thanks heaps, I got my file back. I thought the locked partition may of been permanently lost.

Beama - didn't need that but thanks :)

Speedy and Wanuitech - thanks - Trojan Remover, Spyware Teminator worked, Malwarebytes worked eventually after some error screens. Upon restart I got the partition back. Saved me doing the last 6 months of monthly budgets. I have the papers thou.
