hubzeron,
Files called autorun.inf are used to start up something automatically whenever you go to a particular drive.
They can be used by malware to start up a malicious porgram. They can also be used for legitimate pruposes.
We can remove them.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Remove Programs Using Control Panel
From Start, Settings, Control Panel or Start, Control Panel, click Add/Remove Programs.
Highlight each Entry, as follows, one by one, if it exists, and choose Remove :

BrotherSoft Extreme Toolbar

Take extra care in answering questions posed by any Uninstaller.
---------------------------------------------
Please download SystemLook from one of the links below and save it to your Desktop.
Download Mirror #1
Download Mirror #2

  • Double-click SystemLook.exe to run it.
  • Copy the content of the following codebox into the main textfield:
    Code: Select all
    :filefind
    *autorun*
    
    :folderfind
    *autorun*
    
    
  • Click the Look button to start the scan.
    Because of the Registry searches, the scan may take 15 minutes or a bit more to run on a large machine. Please be patient.
    (Takes about 4 minutes on my XP net book)
  • When finished, a notepad window will open with the results of the scan. Please post this log in your next reply.
Note: The log can also be found on your Desktop entitled SystemLook.txt
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Download and Run MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware It is free for non-business use.
Please go here to the Download Location, click on the Free Download button on the Left.
When the next page comes up, click on the Download Now button in the upper right.
  • After clicking on the download and choosing Save, the "Save to location" dialog will come up.
  • Choose Desktop as the location to save the installer and click Save again.
  • You should now have a desktop icon named mbam-setup.exe. Double-click it.
  • Let it install the program where it wants to, with the default settings, and click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • If necessary, start Malwarebytes Anti-Malware again.
    (You can Decline any Offer for a Trial if you don't want the paid version)
  • Once the program is running, select Perform Quick Scan, then click Scan.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • If it found any malware items. Check all items except items in the C:\System Volume Information folder... and click Remove Selected.
  • When completed, a log will open in Notepad. Please save it to a convenient location, and post the contents in your reply.
  • The log can also be found using the "Logs" tab in the program. You can click any "Scan" log listed to open its contents.
  • Recent logs are named by time/date stamp in this format : mbam-log-2011-mm-dd(hour-min-sec).txt
  • You can now delete the installer icon, named mbam-setup.exe from your desktop.

We will be looking for the log from SystemLook and the Log from Ma;warebytes Anti-Malware.

Your machine looks OK.
Having a Directory named autorun.inf is actually good, because it prevents a file of that name from being created.

You should be good to go.
------------------------------------------------
Reset System Restore Points
  • Click Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore
  • Click Create A Restore Point then click Next. Give it a name and then click Create, then Close.
  • Click Start, Run and type Cleanmgr
  • Select the Windows drive (usually C:), then click OK.
  • After it scans, Click the More Options tab.
  • Click Clean Up in the System Restore Section.
This will remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.

Reboot your machine to record the changes you have made.
This System Restore sequence is not to be done regularly, but only as a Special Case after the removal of malware or changes in the Restore settings.
