To restore the Western Digital icon to the drive letter for the external drive in "My Computer".
Please go to the Western Digital Download Library and download the WD Logo Icon which has a file name of External Icon.zip when you download it.
Save the file to your desktop and use a file compression software like Winzip to extract the files inside the .zip file to your desktop. When it's unzipped, it will create a folder named "ExternalIcon" on your desktop.
Double-click on the ExternalIcon folder. It will open a Windows Explorer showing a folder named, Autorun, and a file named, Autorun.inf.Double-click on My Computer and it will open.
Double-click on the driver letter that represents the Western Digital drive you want the icon on and it will open.
Highlight the Autorun folder and the Autorun.inf file. Right-click on them, and left-click on Cut when the Menu appears.
Right-click in the open space of the drive that you opened in the new Explorer window, and then left-click on Paste.
Close both Explorer windows, safely remove the external hard drive by using the Safely Remove icon in the system tray, shut down the computer, and unplug the external drive from the computer.
After you reboot into Windows, reconnect the external drive to the computer again, and the Western Digital Icon should now be displayed with the drive letter in My Computer.
If these steps do not correct the problem, you will need to re-format your External Hard Drive ***WARNING*** FORMATTING A HARD DRIVE WILL ERASE, YOU WILL LOSE, ALL DATA
Open Windows Explorer or My Computer, right click the CD/DVD drive with the Sims disc in it. For example "D:". Right click on the drive and select "Explore" or "Open". In the list of files you should have a "SETUP.EXE". Double left-click that file.
Have you tried another browser? like Mozilla firefox or google chrome? Adobe flash player doesnt work on 64-bit Internet explorer and that usually is the cause of your problem. You can try opening a 32-bit internet explorer on your system though and check if youtube will work.
click on my computer, then double click on drive C. Look for the folder that has X86 on it. open it and look for the internet explorer folder. open it again and then double click on the icon that says Iexplore. It will open a 32-bit internet explorer. if that wont work. go to mozilla.com and download firefox.
I have seen this several times and it is brought about due to a virus that creates an autorun file (autorun.ini).
In this file when you double click the drive, executes the file and in the autorun file exists any of the following: - Microsoftpowerpoint.exe smss.exe .... or many others.
It is good thing that you have a strong antivirus which seems to have removed the viruses and therefore when the information file is opened, it does not find the executables it was supposed to run. That is why it asks for a program to open.
You can prove this by right clicking on the drive to see a shortcut menu and in this menu, the bolded menu will be the action taken when double clicked and the possibility is that you will find Autorun bolded.
To resolve the issue do the following: 1) Open My computer program or windows explorer. 2) Right click on the drive and open or explore it. 3) Locate the file Autorun and delete it. If the file is not shown, from the folder options choose show all files. This is because sometimes this file may be hidden.
Try double clicking the drives again to see if you get he same error.
NOTE: Many virus developers have made possible for people to install/run viruses in there own computers by simply double clicking the drives like flash disk.
