It only happened after I reinstalled my Windows XP SP2. I can't access microsoft.com, can browse to the windows live site but can't download the live messenger, can't browse to viruslist.com and any anti-virus site such as avg. I had a trial Kaspersky 7.0 that found 7 worms and deleted them but still no luck in being able to browse to microsoft websites. Here's the log of hijackthis I just did :

The infection you have on the computer is the W32/SillyFDC-AP worm. It is spread via Removable storage devices. I see by your log that it shows both processes running from both "C" drive and "E" drive. I have to assume that "E" drive is a removable drive, correct?
That drive is obviously infected along with your "C" drive. Infected files showing on the auto starting entries are in the "C" drive.

How did you reintstall XP? Did you use an XP disk or was it via a program on the removable drive?


No. I have 7 local disks : C, D, E, F, G, H, I and K for the pen drive. Of them, D and I drives make up 20 gigabytes worth of storage space from a secondary hard disk. The other newly bought hard disk is made up of C, E, F,G and H drives. I reinstalled XP on C, installed KAV2009 after posting a log of Hijackthis here and disinfected, deleted and blocked about a thousand instances of the same trojan spread in all the drives and 27 viruses. Now I can browse to microsoft websites and download updates.

However, If I insert the pen drive (K) in its USB port and try to open it, it says " The drive is not formatted. Would you like to format it now?" After I select, " Yes ", a new error message tells me that the disk can't be formatted and that's it. I can't open/ explore my pen drive in anyway.

Also, after the virus scan, I can't double-click on the icons of my disks. If I do, I get a message window that asks me which programs do I want to use to open the drive. I have to right-click and explore to access all the drives. I'm much worried about this because this is exactly how my pen drive used to react after it was infected.

Does this mean my pen drive is absolutely unusable right now? Why am I not being able to open my drives with double-clicks?
