anyone have any ideas what this is?
Erases all data on my flash drives
places several shortcuts which all point to nuoabijx.exe
also places a single video file ominously called "x"
I am currently in Haiti doing some volunteer computer work and this popped up on a computer i was taking a look at for one of the medical teams who have been here for several months. The computer was new out of the box when it arrived in Haiti, so the virus may be local to Haiti alone.
I ran avast boot time scanner and found numerous infections.
After booting avast fails to load on boot, when i try to run it via the desktop icon i get "the application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect.
msconfig reveals numerous files are trying to load on startup, none of which are actually located where msconfig says they are trying to launch from.
sorry for the lousy typing and formatting of the question but it's 2am and im running on empty. would like to get this working before my flight back to the states in 30 hours.
