Download and install avast from www.avast.com (its free and awesome)
then download and install spybot search and destroy from here http://www.safer-networking.org/

and that should clean your pc..
if you want your drives to stop opening in a new window, then open any drive, go to tools>file options and see in the generals tab, there is an option to make all folders open in the same window..

Optical drive D: repair in windows 8.1


Sounds like Autoplay is not configured. You can see how to change your Autoplay settings on Microsoft's web site here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/change-autoplay-settings#1TC=windows-7. Autoplay is a strange duck, doesn't always work regardless of settings. You can also open 'computer', which in Windows 81 shows as your User Name, not 'Computer' or 'My Computer' like older versions, then right-click Drive: D, and click 'Play with VLC Media Player', which is the best player I believe - I've used it for years.

Disable AutoPlay in Windows Vista


Windows Vista's AutoPlay options are a great improvement over Windows XP in terms of flexibility, but unfortunately there are so many options that it can be confusing, especially since there's no specific mention of USB Flash drives in the options. Open your Control Panel, and then click on "Play CDs or other media automatically" to open the AutoPlay dialog. Disable AutoPlay Globally. The quickest way to disable AutoPlay entirely is to just uncheck the box for "Use AutoPlay for all media and devices", which should usually work.

How to Stop pen drive opening directly inserted usb port in windows 8


Hello

At some point, you enabled "Auto Play" on your computer and that is why the PC opens the USB drive when you connect it.

To change this, go to CONTROL PANEL and then double click AUTOPLAY.

You can set what you want to happen when each type of media is inserted into your computer on this window.

In your case, look at the REMOVABLE MEDIA area and change it from "Open a folder to view files" to "Take no Action".
