ORKUT banned problem

ORKUT banned problem
Orkut is banned you fool, The administrators didnt write this program guess who did?? MUHAHAHA!! with title ORKUT IS BANNED. Well, a similar message was displayed for YouTube also. So I went through all the posts, and finally found a solution given here:
Press CTRL+ALT+DEL and go to the processes tab

Look for svchost.exe under the image name. There will be many but look for the ones which have your username under the username

Press DEL to kill these files. It will give you a warning, Press Yes

Repeat for more svchost.exe files with your username and repeat. Do not kill svchost.exe with system, local service or network service!

Now open My Computer

In the address bar, type C:\heap41a and press enter. It is a hidden folder, and is not visible by default.

Delete all the files here

Now go to Start --> Run and type Regedit

Go to the menu Edit --> Find

Type "heap41a" here and press enter. You will get something like this "[winlogon] C:\heap41a\svchost.exe C:\heap(some number)\std.txt"

Select that and Press DEL. It will ask "Are you sure you wanna delete this value", click Yes

Now close the registry editor.Now the virus is gone. But be sure to delete the autorun.inf file and any folder whose name ends with .exe in the pen drive.

UPDATEIt seems that they have named this malware as w32.USBWorm and according my friend, Avast is able to detect and remove it. I hope the other antivirus software will also be able to remove it soon.
