This is very common that we use our Pendrive within others PCs or Laptops. One of the viruses which I recently have faced is called “Secure Browser”. For the first time, when I see that, was the time I went to a print shop. I thought this is their security application to avoid running malicious codes or malware. Today, I found that my pendrive has the same directories and folders in hidden form. In addition some new and suspicious processes in my Task Manager were running. Obviously I never installed it. So I tried TrendMicro it couldn’t detect or clean it. I tried my own Esset Smart Security as well with the latest version; it could detect and quarantine them. So I started digging google, to see if there is any introduced tool for “Secure Browser” virus. I found USBfix which is free. This is very easy and straight forward tool which ask you to connect your external drives such as SD card, Hard Drives, Pendrives and will scan and clean all of them, as well as your registry and system directories. It’s good to have it next to your Malwarebytes application. You may need to future as well. In the following the steps are explained.
Once you have downloaded, run the USBfix and wait for the first wizard appear and then click on Next as follows:
In the next step it pop up a message box that tell you to connect your external drives, simply click on ok and go for the next step.
While it starts to analyze your system and external drives, it invites you to participate in the SOSVirus.net Forum. Its up to you to join or not. So I click on “No” to go for the next step.
Finally USBfix thanks you for choosing their tool. actually we should say thanks for helping us to stop this annoying virus.
And then it goes to start analyzing and removing the infected files. This is secure application, it doesn’t damage your system. at least so far my PC had no issue since the last time running J. It might ask you to restart your computer, save your files and works and then restart your machine.
keep the USBFix in your pendrive, whenever you see this in others computer you may help them by simply running it and clean their system for free.
