thanks for replying saran008 but im deciding to reformat my entire driver i already backuped my stuff i already tried almost 30 types of anti viruses including anti malewares and force deleter ,i followed some removals but still i haven't got any chances the weirdest thing is none of them find anything this could be new Autorun virus? and

PS: the "oldmcdonald.exe" is from USB anti virus i figure its not part from Autorun.inf so its not a virus

Glad you got it removed. I swear, malware is getting significantly sneakier these days, the bastards.

Whenever you plug a USB drive in your computer, a window will appear (if your autorun is enabled).

Don’t click on Ok , just choose ‘Cancel’.

Open your command prompt. Type ‘cmd’ in the run box or on the search panel if you are using vista

In the command prompt type the drive letter of your usb device and press enter. ex. C:\F: <— then press enter

Type dir /w/a and press enter. ex F:\ dir /w/a <— then press enter

This will display a list of the files in in your flash drive. Check if the following files present on your USB device.

* Autorun.inf
* Ravmon.exe
* New Folder.exe
* svchost.exe
* Heap41a
* or any other exe file that you find suspicious.

If you spotted any of the above files, then most probably your drive is infected.

To remove the virus, type in to your command prompt “attrib -r -a -s -h *.* and press enter. This will remove the Read Only, Archive, System and hidden file attribute from all the files.

To delete the virus just type del and the filename ex. F:\del virus.exe and hit enter.Delete all the files that you suspected is a virus. After deleting the virus, run a virus scan on your USB device just to make sure that your device is clean.

Remove the USB drive and plug it again. In most cases, the real culprit is “Autorun.inf” file which gets executed when someone clicks Ok in the dialog window which appears above. Thus the infections can spread.

Have you tried Super Anti Spyware in addition to Mbam?

Are you trying to disable autorun or remove a virus that has attached itself to your autorun functionality?
