I have a file server 2003 which is shared by various depts via their respective folders with their access permission. Unfortunately, one of those folders were infected by virus W32.STUXNET!INK....this virus created several shortcuts of the folders within the main folder but the dept could not access. I ran several virus scan, check online for removal tool...updated my virus protection definition and yet I cannot get access  the folder. I can get to see the folder..via Super hidden view but I cannot get to access it. Only this particular dept's folder is unaccessible. What do I do?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The best solution is, you have to download latest MWAV virus scanner (not escan), which installs just instance and scans as emergency basis.

When the menu comes, select All Local Drives and again select Scan All Files in SAFE MODE. After full scan, again select the 1st option then select Program Files and restart the computer in Normal Mode.

Don’t worry, it is totally free and down able. If u getting problem to find MWAV, u r feel free to contact me.

If the problem persists then you have to format or repartition ur system.

Hope this will work for you.

============
Viruses and other malicious software programs have the ability to hide itself as if it is a legitimate software. If you think that your computer system is really infected with w32.stuxnet virus, you have to scan it using your installed antivirus software. If you don’t have an antivirus software, it would be hard for you to recover your system which has been already infected.

    How did your cleanup turn out? Have you continued following the StuxNet story? A blog post from here -- More Stuxnet news. Not much in the blog entry except a fascinating link to a Symantec blog post about what they had learned of how StuxNet works. A CSMonitor story -- Stuxnet malware is 'weapon' out to destroy ... -- about what seems to be its purpose. A FoxNews story -- Mystery Surrounds Cyber Missile -- about what it quite possibly accomplished. Tom
