Hi jyoti1313, welcome to the forum.

Bad news I'm afraid. You are infected with a file infector called Virut.

Windows Hosts Controller;Windows Hosts Controller;c:\windows\fonts\uninstall_.exe

This infection can and will infect all the machine's executable files .exe, .scr plus .html and .htm. Because there are a number of bugs in its code, it may create executable files that are corrupted beyond repair resulting in an inoperative machine.

Recent variants also modify asp and php files.

More information can be found here and here and here.

A Complete Reformat and Reinstall is the only way to clean the infection. This includes All Drives that contain .exe, .scr, .hlm, .html files.
  • Backup all your documents and important items only, data/documents/pictures/movies/songs/etc..
  • DO NOT backup any executable files (,exe .scr .html or .htm)
  • All programs should be downloaded afresh, not reinstalled from backup copies
  • Any security programs should be downloaded on a clean computer before hand and installed before connecting the newly formatted system to the internet.
  • Do Not back up compressed files (zip/cab/rar) files that may contain .exe or .scr files
  • Reformat and Reinstall as outlined HERE
  • or HERE
A CD would be best, but a blank USB device will work. Make sure there aren't any executable on it.
If you are going to use a USB device, I suggest you use a freshly formated one. After formatting it, use FDD on it before attaching it to the infected computer.

Be further advised that these infections may have backdoor capabilities.

I suggest you do the following immediately:
  • Call all of your banks, credit card companies, financial institutions and inform them that you may be a victim of identity theft and to put a watch on your accounts or change all your account numbers.
  • From a clean computer, change *all* your online passwords -- for email, for banks, financial accounts, PayPal, eBay, online companies, any online forums or groups you belong to.
  • DO NOT change passwords or do any transactions while using the infected computer because the attacker will get the new passwords and transaction information.
Feel free to ask any questions, but keep in mind a Reformat is the only way to clean this computer.
