How to remove W32.SillyFDC Virus| W32.SillyFDC Virus Removal

Systems Affected: Windows 98, Windows 95, Windows XP, Windows Me, Windows NT, Windows 2000
Effect on the system:When W32.SillyFDC is executed, it may copy itself to the following folder locations:
  • %System%
  • %Windir%
  • %Temp%
  • %UserProfile%
  • %ProgramFiles%

  • %CommonProgramFiles%
  • %CurrentFolder%
Using any of the following file names with a .com or .exe extension:
  • CALC
  • calc
  • mscalc.exe

It then scans the compromised computer to create copies of itself in various folders. It will use the existing folder name as its new file name. For example, ABC folder will have a copy of the virus inside the folder as ABC.exe.

The worm may copy itself in drives A:\ through Z:\. Next, it may add a value to the following registry subkeys so that it runs every time Windows starts.:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\”load”
The worm may attempt to copy itself to removable drives and mapped drives, as well as creating the following file so that the worm runs every time the removable drive is attached to a computer:
[REMOVABLE DRIVE]:\Autorun.inf
