Orkut virus

Let this be the first technical post here ..Since a lot our hostelites are suffering frm the virus ..

This is because of a virus named USBWORM ( orkut ,youtube blocking virus ) do the following step to get the result.

Automatically remove :

Complete fixation could be downloaded from here ...

It could remove the problem of losing hidden files too...

Usage Instructions:

1) Download the fix and run on infected machine.
2) It will ask for a re login.
3) After logging again run the fix again. The worm will be removed succesully.

Manually do it :

1. Go to your Start menu, click on Run and open up your Registry Editor by typing "regedit"
2. Once there go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folde r\Hidden\SHOWALL
3. Delete the value CheckedValue. (Its type should be REG_SZ and data should be 2.)
4. Create a new DWORD value called CheckedValue (same as above, except that the type is REG_DWORD) by right clicking on the right pane->New->DWORD Value. Modify the value data to 1 (0x00000001).

After the whole thing there is a chance for the virus to getin again ..unless u re-install the Mozilla ...If u didn't do this the virus may be activated once again if u take mozilla after the whole thing ..
