    What anti-virus are you using? I suggest to use the Free version of Avast:

    NOD 32 is great at identifying viruses but it's really lousy in removing them. I've used NOD before and this is it's weakness.

    Worm remover

    Sounds like u got a worm most likely SpyBot worm, you can try an online scan from panda http://www.pandasoftware.co.uk/. There doesn't appear to be a standalone removal tool for it. Many firms also offer trialware which will remove the virus - what AV are you using (Norton) and when did you update the definitions?

    Yes sorry - it looks like keyboard telepathy, I remember thinking 'Norton' but I don't remember typing it. Anyway if you can do a panda activescan it should cure your PC alternately you can kill the win32usb.exe file yourself and remove the run registry keys (see below). If it is identified as wootbot/forbot rather than spybot worm take a look here http://castlecops.com/startuplist-5875.html and here http://www.sophos.com/virusinfo/anal...2forbotbq.html .

    Remove the file by whichever method you choose, get this http://www.techzonez.com/forums/atta...achmentid=1294 rename the extension from .txt to .reg and run it - it will remove many possible malware startup entries from your registry including the one for win32usb.exe.
