| Automatically copies itself onto your flashdrive from local user directory AppData along with an autorun.ini. When you click to open your flashdrive from My Computer, it copies the winlog.exe file to your computer. Just delete from startup (run=msconfig) and do a search and delete all instance of the file iStar19|
