Most virus's can be removed by starting your computer in safe mode. when you run in safe mode this allows only certain programs to run. run your antivirus in safe mode and or any spyware removal software you have. if by chance this doesn't work do a system restore back to a few days before you know the virus had infected you computer. hope this helps.

Sometimes for virus or trojan horse you may difficulties opening your drives. Your autorun.inf is infected if you find any abnormal language when you right-click on a drive. This autorun.inf file is hidden and you will not see the file even though you select to show your all files from Folder Options.

1. Goto Start --> Run and type cmd then click OK.
2. If you want to remove the infected file from drive C: then type C: then press Enter.
3. Type "autorun.inf" and press Enter.
4. Type "del autorun.inf" then press Enter. The file is in the drive but not showing or you can't delete it now.
5. Now type "attrib autorun.inf -s -h -r" and press Enter.
6. Now delete the file by typing "del autorun.inf" and press Enter.
7. Restart the computer.

Good Luck!

Autorun.inf open error in flash drive

open My Computer, and right click on "explore" to get your files. Then install a good anti-virus program, such as Avast! Anti-virus ( and clean off your (possibly) infected hard drive and computer.

Cannot access folders- folders not shown

You have to make Disinfection in order to be able to open your folders.

First of all go to

And You'll see Download Here:
Flash Disinfector <<<< Hit it
Save it to your Desktop

Now Turn OFF any Antivirus.

Connect the wire of iRiver X20 MP3 Player to your computer.

Go to "Flash Disinfector" on your desktop, and double click it. Hold on 10 seconds the screen will disappear, then everything will work properly.

Now you can open your folders, but you are highly recommended NOT to only disinfect it but also to remove it, because it's a trojan virus that calls autorun.inf << generic trojan horse that affect your AutoRun of the drives.

Run Your explorer as Administrator and
Go to

do Online scanning. It will automatically detect the trojan and any other virus in case this trojan is worm and affected other files, so everything will be removed automatically.

Also, you are highly recommended to restart your PC when the Online Scanner is done.

This will work 100%
