We are running windows server 2003 and a virus has come to my attention on our sharedrive. Siuon.exe.  I checked the antivirus scans and it found Siuon.exe, Siuon.scr and another Siuon.scr.  There is also  a strang autorun.inf

All users are mapped to the sharedrive and when the go to "My Computer" and click the sharedrive it tries to run this .exe.

Is there a specific way to remove this type of virus??

Thank you

Step 1.  Turn off autorun on all drives on all computers. This is a serious security problem that has been around for years.
Then youcan go about using malwarebytes anti malware to clean up. You may want to disconnect the share drive at the source to stop the spread while you cleanup.

On a server i would be very careful with removal tools. Malwarebytes is supported and ok!
I would also run hitman pro trial and uninstall after removing the treats.
