Question about Computers & Internet
Prompt isn't working.. yes I have gone on properties, autoplay tab and selected take no action/restore default.. yet it still doesn't prompt.. also my autorun inf file isn't working.. I have tried everything.. I have formatted my usb and tried again but it still isn't working. it will however if i select an action to perform open to view files but that is it.. i have tried microsoft autoplay fix as well.. it hasn't worked :'( please help?
Autorun is a feature of Windows XP that brings up a screen with actions that the user can perform any time a storage device or piece of media is inserted into a computer. This feature can be disabled by changing a value in the system registry. If the Autorun feature is not working on your Windows XP system, fix the computer so that the Autorun options will be displayed when a USB device is connected.
Select the "Start" button and choose "Run." Type "regedit" (no quotation marks) and click "OK." Click on the key "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\Explorer\NoDriveTypeAutorun" in the left side of the window. Right-click on the value "NoDriveTypeAutoRun" in the right side of the window. Select "Modify" from the menu. Enter "91" into the "Value data" box. Select "Hexadecimal" as the type. Click "OK" to enable Autorun on all types of drives, including USB devices. Close the registry editor and reboot the computer. Hope this helps.

Right click My Computer, select Properties, choose System Restore and turn off SR on all drives.
Then, do all the manual removals you posted before. Then, go to this url:
and run the full virus scan on all drives.
Because the files you note as infected are actually required by XP to run, you may not actually be able to go online, still try not to remove those files if possible, once they are removed you will have to restart your machine with the XP Disc and tell it to install, load any specific drivers needed such as those for your raid array if you have one, only when Setup tells you Windows is already installed, select Repair instead of New and Windows will heal your system.
So, because of those critical files being corrupted, don't be too surprised that when your online scan asks you to clean your system that your system freezes or halts at some point. Just be prepared with your Windows disc and Product Key.
I'll be available for any follow up questions you may have just comment back to me by clicking on my user name and then Ask Me.

1) I believe that Windows XP is not setup for that by default,
you may need to install the old BETBUI service.
2) Also, if the 2000 machine has a login password installed,
it will NOT allow any other machine to browse it, without
3) Password-less file sharing over NETBUI was available
on the consumer side of windows:
Windows 3.11 for Work groups
Windows 95, 98 and Millenium.
The professional versions of windows, built on NT
technology require a login:
Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP,
and now Vista.
4) The best work around is to login to the 2000 machine when
it prompts you for a password, using your regular USER ID
If the 2000 machine is not setup with a secure login,
just create a new account, ranking power user or higher.
5) Note that you only need to login over the network ONCE,
because windows XP can REMEMBER your password,
and login automatically the next time.
6) Make sure that the firewall (or A firewall) is not
blocking access to either machine, just disable the
firewalls for testing.
Similarly, if your LAN is behind a residential router, using
the router as a smart hub or switch, make sure that
the routers MAC address access blocking is disabled,
until you get everything setup and tested.
7) Finally if a PC is not visible in a work group, this does not
mean that it is not accessible. This is a Windows quirk.
You can try to access another computer by using the
default/administrative shares. These shares cannot be
disabled in XP, at least they will not stay disabled, as
they will restart during every reboot, whether you like it
This means that you can ALWAYS access all the drives
on another machine, whether you share them or not, unless
you take extreme measures in the local policies.
To access drive "E:" on a computer called "Henry" on a
machine in the same work-group,
open up windows explorer, and tyr the following into the
This should access drive E:, after some delay, and possibly
a login prompt, even though drive is is NOT marked as
Down you just love windows ?!
Security by obscurity ?!
Microsoft is getting very good at hanging massive steel doors
on paper walls.
Hope this solves your problem, or gets around it.
