Hi All,

I've a very strong virus auto alert message in my Autocad 2007 -2011, i try to re installed the product and clear the registry editor as well as change all the AutoCad version, i also try to scan with Kaspersky and Avast but none of them can catch the virus. Unfortunately the auto alert message still keep alert while i'm opening the autocad design file,


Anyone here used to meet this problem? Please help me to give any suggestion would be a very big save!


Thank in advanced,

I suggest Googling the name of the virus your Antivirus scanner reports.

Hi Nestly,

 

Thank for your suggestion, However neither virus name nor reported from Kaspersky & Avast, This is just a disturb auto alert message while we opening the AutoCad design file, if we open 20 times the alert will display 20 times for each open. And antivirus can't catch this virus at all,

 

Thank,

Cambodia

trying to state that everything you have posted doesn't indicate anything that you have a virus.

web-based forum software is fudging my reply...GIVE US NNTP ACCESS BACK!

 

Sorry for off topic banter.

 Hi Cambodia,


My company has just occured this alert message, I scanned with "Symantec Endpoint Protection"  but could not find any virus.

Whenever I open an Autocad file, a file "acaddoc.fas" is created at the same directory.

 

Please help us to solve this problem.

 

Thanks and regards.

Trung.

Please post a screenshot of the virus alert message, with a circle around the part you think is the virus message.

I hope my info was useful, but if by some odd chance it actually solved your issue, feel free to mark your post as "Accept as Solution". Thanks! :smileyhappy:

Re: Strong Virus alert message in Autocad 2007 - 2011 - Fixed!

Dear All,

 

I already found the solution,

 

Please search all files and folders in your computer with the string "*.fas", when your search result finish just delete all the result. Then you will get your autocad to work back :smileyhappy:

 

Cheer!
