Re: problem with the drive
Hi pravin, One must pay close attention to the display screen when performing a new instillation of windows. Windows will show you the drive partitions. In your case windows will show there are two partitions. One C:\ & a second partition F:\. Perform a 3rd installation of windows. When you get to the screen where you can see both partitions (C: & F:) have windows delete the F: partition. Than have windows format the C: partition. Once C: has been formatted have windows install its self onto C:\ Install your driver software for your board. Than update windows through windows update service. If you wish to back up your personal data to a CD/DVD writer, suggest you do this before formatting the system. Suggested folders to back-up. C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\Desktop C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\Favorites C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\Local Settings\Identities C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\My Documents Data from any program you may have installed. Once windows has been updated & you install anti-virus software you can copy & past each folder over the new folder in windows. How to install windows XP. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316941

In English: Click on the start button, the click on my computer. Open up the c drive then go into program files. in there, there should be a folder called Google, in that there is a folder called chrome, in there open up application and there you should find chrome.exe.
Right click in and choose "create shortcut" That shortcut you can place where ever and can be used to open up google chrome
This is what I did.
1. Turn On PC as normal
2. Wait for prompt error to show up
3. When it appears, Run Task Manager (here you can see the task running the Error Prompt)
4. Right Click on the task and Choose > Go To Process (will take you to processes Tab)
5. See the highlighted Process, Right Click and Choose Open File Location
6. Windows Explorer will appear and you can see the Application Folder (name of application)
In my case, a 'browser toolbar application' was trying to auto initiate itself
7. Open Uninstall Programs > Search for Application Name > Uninstall (NOTE: PLEASE DO NOT UINSTALL IF THE PROGRAM IS A CORE FILE like Windows related program)..
8. Restart PC.....its gone :)
Do a system restore. Click start > program > accessories > system tools > system restore.

Hopefully this will get your system back up and running well. First download from malwarebytes.org their free anti-malware program. Then follow the steps below.
Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
On the Scanner tab:
Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
Then click on the Scan button.
If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally(not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes, they may alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please permit the program to allow the changes. I hope that this helps you out, and that you are able to restore your system back to running condition. Ken
i think you have an autorun.inf file residing at your local drives. this probably infected by a virus.
go to control panel >folder option> click View> choose "Show Hidden Files and Folders" and uncheck Hide Protected Operating System Files, this will show hidden autorun.inf file. In your explorer, right click your local disk and click explore, this will show all your files and folders of your drive, navigate autorun.inf file, if found delete it. note: it has an associated file called vbsscript file...if found also delete it..do the same with the other drives. empty recycle bin and restart.
