There is a Trojan/virus (either the Win32/Pacex virus or the Win32/PSW.Agent.NDP trojan) that uses the two files ntde1ect and autorun.inf Here is how you can get rid of them:
Open Task Manager and in Processes tab end explorer.exe and wscript.exe process
Open up File –> New Task (Run) in the Task manager
Type cmd and hit Enter
del /a:h /f c:\autorun.*
Go to your Windows\System32
directory by typing cd c:\windows\system32
Type dir /a:h /f avp*.*
If you see any files names avpo.dll or avpo.exe or avpo.exe, use the
Del /a:h /f avpo.exe
Open up File –> New Task (Run) in the Task manager, Type regedit
Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
If there are any entries for avpo.exe, delete them.
Do a complete search of your registry for ntdelect.com and delete any entries you find.
To Restore Folder Options Settings, Navigate to
Look at the “CheckedValue” key… This should be a DWORD key. If it isn’t, delete the key.Create a new key called “CheckedValue” as a DWORD (hexadecimal) with a value of 1. The “Show hidden files & folders” check box should now work normally.

Avast Antivirus is one of the best antivirus software which i have ever come across.I have used Norton,Mcafee,Pc-cillin and AVG Antivirus but no one can match the performance of Avast.
It plus points are a very fast boot time(which is not possible in Norton),a regularly updated Virus database and above all it is free for home usage.Its size is about 16 mb and can be downloaded easily on dial up. (more…)
