    I recently inserted a flashdrive in my computer and it got messed up. I reformatted it. Then, I was dumb enough to insert the same flashdrive into my dad's computer. Now I'm trying to fix the problem without having to reformat his computer (since he has lots of important files). I researched on now to delete autorun.inf. I tried multiple times but it keeps coming back.

    Also, I tried to insert the flashdrive in my school's computer, it had a problem opening the flashdrive. There was a file called itsduel.exe and the school's computer prevented it from opening. When i came back home, I found that itsduel.exe and autorun.inf were in my dad's computer. I successfully deleted itsduel.exe but now there's another called c6t1h.cmd.

    Some problems that my dad's computer is facing are:
    -double clicking the c drive opens a new window (the option to open a new window is not checked)
    -won't show hidden files
    -won't boot up in safe mode when selected

    Possibly more helpful information:
    There was a time where I saw the actual txt file for autorun.inf and I deleted it. Then, I tried to double click my C drive and it came up with an error saying something along the lines of, "C:\ is not a valid Win32 application."

    Here's a copy of the HJT log:

    Close this thread because it is fixed (at least I think it is). I fixed it by doing some handy research. I successfully deleted the autorun.inf and the .exe file that autorun.inf happens to create. Now its time to scan the computer again just in case (yay!)
