    W32/Browney.a.worm

    ok i just found a lot pf infected files in the RESTORE folder, especifically in the TEMP and ARCHIVE folders.
    i booted from a floppy and deleted all files in the ARCHIVE directory but i could not delete the TEMP directory th PC just keeps hanging.

    Maccafee viruscan tells me the virus is a: W32/Browney.a.worm but it canīt clean or delete the files...

    It depends on the Windows version, really...

    To delete the 'Temp' files, just modify (edit) the autoexec.bat file in the treetrunk...

    At the end of the script in the autoexec.bat file, just add:

    DelTree c:\Windows\Temp
    MD c:\Windows\Temp

    The MD command is to, obviously, recreate the Temp folder, which, when lacking, Windows has a f***ing tantrum.

    Once again, Und3ertak3r, wouldn't one, depending on the Windows version, restart or subregate into DOS and perform a -h -s command to free the files? I presume that most users know that Windows is a bitch to work with only because it closes off, by default, the freedom to use its full power (use 'winipcfg' as an example). In the process of learning about DOS, I understood many commands that were "hidden" in Win 3.11. This knowledge should not be shadowed. The key is to find the folders and files that are causing the problem and remove them...but recreate blank folders to accept default info in the process.

    This is a peer-to-peer worm that spreads via KaZaa. The only purpose of the worm is to spread. It does not contain a damaging payload. When run, it copies itself to the %WinDir%\System32 directory as DirectXset.exe and creates a registry run key to load itself at startup:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\
    Run "DirectX64" =C:\WINDOWS\System32\DirectXset.exe
    The HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\KAZAA\LocalContent registry key is queried to locate the last "Dir" that is shared. The worm then creates a new shared directory, such as Dir4 = 012345:C:\WINDOWS\System32\Setup32\. 26 copies of the worm are saved to this directory using the following filenames:
    Audio Catalyst 2.1.exe
