Restore access to drives under My Computer

Does this happen with you?

  • You cannot access or enter the hard drives on your computer when you click on a partition say C or the D Drive?
  • You find an annoying autorun.inf or MSwin32.dll.vbs or r.cmd or bqk.bat or on all your flash drives and partitions?
  • Task Manager disabled? Cant view hidden files?
  • Startup is slow? PC hangs while booting up?

The Solution

  1. Download and run this file! Unlock.v1.2 from HERE or HERE (UPDATED July 08,2008 )
  2. Save all your work and Restart your computer

Note: The Script Killer file might take a few minutes to run and might display error messages. Its normal. The file will not do any harm. If it helped or if it didnt, please drop in a comment! thanks!

Read further only if you would like to read more about the problem and how I solved it! Also read my article on Removing the FlashDrive autorun.inf Virus for more info

A few words of explanation about the (so called) virus

The contents of a typical malicious autorun.inf

shellexecute=wscript.exe mswin32.dll.vbs

The contents of the file MSwin32.dll.vbs

‘ i like to be known as (udaipu) v1.02
‘ i made this virus because s3 umbi poi. it sucked.. so give me marks…..xxxrxextxxx

on error resume next

auto = “[autorun]”&vbcrlf&”shellexecute=wscript.exe mswin32.dll.vbs”
set fs = createobject(“Scripting.FileSystemObject”)
set mf = fs.getfile(Wscript.ScriptFullname)

For any person with basic understanding of scripts, it will be quite clear what this script is all about 😛 and which settings on your computer are being changed.

What is wscript.exe ?

It is the Windows Scripting Host!

How I did I do it ?

Now this is the fun part 😀

The following operations are performed by the file:

  1. Terminates the Windows Processes wscript.exe and monit.exe.
  2. Deletes all autorun.inf files on system.
  3. Deletes all mswin32.dll.vbs files on system.
  4. Deletes all r.cmd files on system.
  5. Deletes all bqk.bat files on system.
  6. Deletes all files on system.
  7. Deletes the virus entry from startup/registry.
  8. Disables Scripting.

The file actually extracts these separate files in C:\


@echo off
taskkill /IM wscript.exe
taskkill /IM monit.exe

dir/b/s/l/a-d d:\autorun.inf>> out.bat

Disables scripting

After the operation is complete all the temporary files are deleted.

Download Noscript.exe and permanently disable scripts! or Read more on How to manually disable (or re-enable) the Windows Scripting Host, Symantec or read what Sophos has to say about it

Okay, the programming above is crude but hey it works 😉

I want to reverse engineer this script to use its rapid spreading power against it. To make it cure the infection of all the systems it infects. Maybe in due time …

My congratulations to to the guys who made this virus/vbscript 😛 has gotten into almost every system in my college

Comments and suggestions welcome and I hope it helps!


  1. Thanks much … it worked well and now i know more of what to look for.

  2. Overpopulation says : I absolutely agree with this !

  3. u r simply gr8.!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Pls Help It dosent work for me !!!!
    Please i have to remove it today.
    I have Tried urr unlock.v.1 but no effect on my drives

  5. Dear Hamza, ill more details about your problem! Unlock 1.1 works for only a particular strain of virus. Maybe the version your infected with is different, read my other post on this blog and try to follow the methods listed there.

  6. Hi guys,

    Download the new Unlock v.1.2 from here !

    Its should take care of autorun.inf or MSwin32.dll.vbs or r.cmd or bqk.bat or etc

  7. gr8, superb, wonderful!!!!!!!!!
    hats off 2 u……..

  8. You asked for feedback. I tried your Unlock 1.2 fix but it made no difference… still no access to drives.

  9. Did you immediately restart your computer after running the patch?

    Try running the patch again by:
    0) Save all your work.
    1) [ctrl]+[alt]+[del] Task Manager
    2) Explorer.exe/Right Click/End Process Tree *WARNING* This will kill all your applications, and you will only see the task manager and the wallpaper in background.
    3) File/New Task/ Locate Unlock v.1.2.exe
    4) Wait for execution. After it gives a successful completion message, restart computer – Shut Down/Restart

  10. Is the person who made it a malayali engineering student? from kerala in india? avg detects it. and removes it without much problem.

  11. I dont know. These are the words of the virus author: “s3 umbi poi”

    Sounds south indian to me. “Poi” mean go home in Malayalam.

  12. […] >> Restore access to drives under My Computer Some of the symptoms of an infected […]

  13. Is this something I should do if I can’t open up “My Computer” or “My Documents” or anything like that? I can’t even open up my recycle bin, and when I try to open any of the above my screen flashes and all of my icons disappear for a second and then everything goes back to normal… I am not so smart with computers so I have no idea what the problem is.

  14. When your screen flashes what happens is that your session of windows crashes. This is because the system detected that something went wrong which it could not handle, so the user interface kinda closes and reloads.

    What you could do is install a good updated antivirus like ESET NOD32 and Spyware Doctor.

    Otherwise you will have to manually find and delete the virus. But since you are a novice i would recommend that you run this tool that i made It might solve your problem, though it was built for a different virus.

  15. Hi…
    I really thank you for sharing your tool for killing the viruses. but then, it doesn’t work for me. also, i have tried the steps on your other post but i still can’t remove the virus.
    when i typed type autorun.inf in the DOS mode, i saw that it opens a file named k36fevhw.cmd.
    please help me on this.. thank you…

  16. ” ‘ i like to be known as (udaipu) v1.02
    ‘ i made this virus because s3 umbi poi. it sucked.. so give me marks…..xxxrxextxxx ”

    Udaipu is a malayalam slang for “person playing tricks on others” and umbi poi is a slang for “sucked”.So clearly it is created by a malayali engnrng student who failed to score in s3 xams.Interesting !

  17. it is working man
