Hi Taqvi11,

What scanners have you tried using to remove the virus?

Try running these:
1.  Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to your desktop, check for Updates before scanning.

2.  DrWebCureIt:

I Have Tried these but failed. I have even deleted these files from one computer by booting system  with ERD. but when i logged in as normal mode it was still there. I think it creates some hidden processes but i am not sure about that. Please if someone has solution for that please help me. you can see these files after enabling three options under "FOLDER OPTION" as shown in attached picture number one and two.

Try these;
1.  Download and run this tool and follow the prompts:

2.  Please download ComboFix by sUBs:

You must download it to and run it from your Desktop
Now STOP all your monitoring programs (Antivirus/Antispyware, Guards and Shields) as they could easily interfere with ComboFix.
Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
When finished, it will produce a log. Please save that log and attach it in your next reply by pasting it in the "Code Snippet" or "Attach File" window.
Re-enable all the programs that were disabled during the running of ComboFix..

Do not mouse-click combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.

CF disconnects your machine from the internet. The connection is automatically restored before CF completes its run. If CF runs into difficulty and terminates prematurely, the connection can be manually restored by restarting your machine.

Flash_Disinfector does create autorun.inf folder but that folder is a harmless one, that's created to stop the spread of the infection.
Is that what you meant?

We've also expected you to attach the combofix log so we can check for any bad files that need to be removed using combofix script function.
