Remove virus Net-Worm.Win32.Kido.ix

Yesterday, my computer attack by a worms. Not sure where it come from. I think is because i plug my external hard disk into other pc for file transfering.

It make my window hang, and it block me go to certain website for looking solution. Like kaspersky website. Nowday the worm mutation so fast...

How to remove it?
Thanks for my genius colleague. He ask me use a linux puppy for boot up my pc and go inside delete the auto.inf file. Very usefully. It really works.

Net-Worm.Win32.Kido exploits a critical vulnerability (MS08-067

Microsoft Windows to spread via local networks and removable storage

The worm disables system restore, blocks access to security websites,
and downloads additional malware to infected machines.

Users are strongly recommended to ensure their antivirus databases are
up to date. A patch for the vulnerability is available

Hi leon, good to hear that you solve the problem

freedy, u can use kaspersky to scan and check where the virus location, then install your linux puppy at pen drive and boot up the linux puppy, then you go to your drive and delete it.

I would recommend the antispyware solution from Search-and-destroy to anyone.
I spent a lot of time searching for a good scanner at an affordable price. I tired many different ones before I found Search-and-destroy Antispyware but when I tired it I was very happy with the results. I would recommend the antispyware solution from Search-and-destroy to anyone searching for a great scan that works just as well as Norton and many of the others that you would pay more for. Visit to find out more and to give this scan a try just like I did. I’m sure you will love it as much as I do.
