Try this. Open Start>>Run and type cmd and press enter. This will open a command prompt window. On this command prompt window type the following steps. type cd type attrib -r -h -s autorun.inf type del autorun.inf now type d: and press enter for d: drive partition. Now repeat steps 3 and 4. Similarly repeat step 5 for all your hard disk partition. Restart your system
Hi there, Try to chance the drive letter of E: to ex F:, If you do not use the drive letter F :O),
Go to Start- control panel- Administration- Computeradministration- Disk....(I have my computer in danish and here it writes Diskhåndtering, I do not know whats the name in english :O().- under this place you find all the drives you have on the computer right now, here you choose the drive E: and right click on that and choose chance drive letter. IF you want it back again you simply do the same again. :O)
Hope that helps IF NOT then return here Have a nice day
To correct and solve this error, follow this steps:
1. Run Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del or right click on Taskbar) 2. Stop wscript.exe process if available by highlighting the process name and clicking End Process. 3. Then terminate explorer.exe process. 4. In Task Manager, click on File -> New Task (Run…). 5. Type “cmd” (without quotes) into the Open text box and click OK. 6. Type the following command one by one followed by hitting Enter key:
del c:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a del d:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a del e:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a
c, d, e each represents drive letters on Windows system. If there are more drives or partitions available, continue to command by altering to other drive letter. Note that you must also clean the autorun files from USB flash drive or portable hard disk as the external drive may also be infected. 7. In Task Manager, click on File -> New Task (Run…). 8. Type “regedit” (without quotes) into the Open text box and click OK. 9. Navigate to the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon 10. Check if the value name and value data for the key is correct (the value data of userint.exe include the path which may be different than C drive, which is also valid, note also the comma which is also needed):
If the value is incorrent, modify it to the valid value data.
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.
