How do I get rid of "Alecks" virus
Posted on 2008-10-24
When I was backing up data from my office PCs (Windows Vista and XP Pro) to an external hard drive, I picked up the virus, "alecks". When I tried to read the data from my notebook, my AVG anti-virus identified several files on the root of the external drive as malicious and I "quarantined" the files as they could not be healed. Now I can't access the hard drive through the "open" or "explore" commands in explorer getting the message that the VB script is missing. When I right click on the external drive, I see Open (alecks). None of my other drives are affected.
How do I get rid of this virus/worm?
