    You're computer is infected with the Conficker worm.

    identify the virus/ worm. please visit kaspersky online and scan your computer. locate the infected files and delete them. never open suspicious exe files specially the ones from yours.

    run combofix after kaspersky online scan. run malwarebytes anti-malware. delete recycle folder hidden from your computer. delete restore file.

    about combofix, if using windows xp, try not to download the recovery file.

    One problem with the Conficker worm is that it disables you to update your antivirus/antimalware software or even visit antivirus/antimalware sites so you have get them from another source.

    it's not the conficker worm. please identify the worm and tell me (us)

    locate autorun.ini in the memory card and open it with notepad. copy and paste it here

    the one that affected me is rojan Dropper Win32 Flystud ko and Flystudio.b. it creates EXE folders and hides the real folders. I ran kaspersky online and removed the files.

    these are the files affected:

    C:\Windows\System32\5A8DCC\AK63A1C.EXE Infected: not-a-virus:AdWare.Win32.FlyStudio.b 1
    C:\Windows\System32\5A8DCC\nmurnxp.exe Infected: not-a-virus:AdWare.Win32.FlyStudio.b 1

    and it resolves my problem.
