If you still need help with this please do following:

Download and install TrendMicro HijackThis
* Once installed open HijackThis by clicking Start > Programs > HijackThis and click the button labeled
Do a system scan only

* Click the scan button in the lower left hand corner of the interface and HijackThis will quickly scan your system.
* Once the scan is complete the scan button will now read save log. Click this button to save the log file to your PC. Once you select where you would like to save the file it will open in your systems default text editor. Typically this application is Notepad. Post the log here.

Removal of win32mode of hard drives

While researching this problem, it seems that the most likely cause is a virus called FUNNY UST is mostly an annoyance, not too evil, they say.

Please back up your data!

Some people recommend using a noob killer program to kill the virus, but when searching online for one, I come up with very sketchy sites, use at your own risk!

Others have recommended the following site for answers:

Then there are these anti virus programs to try, one is free, other a trial, both good:

FINALLY.......I found a jumble of instructions to try to fix the problem, and they are as follows.
I have not had this problem myself, but it looks like a messy one, good luck!

Go to Start/Run and type :

reg.exe add "HKCRDriveshell" /ve /d "none" /f

then type:

regsvr32 shell32.dll

If this doesn't work - try this


when you open any drive letter from your pc it gives the following error

c: application can not run in Win32 mode
d: application can not run in Win32 mode


To correct and solve this error follow this procedure

Run Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del or right click on Taskbar)

Stop wscript.exe process if available by highlighting the process name and clicking End Process.

Then terminate explorer.exe process.

In Task Manager, click on File -> New Task (Run…).

Type “cmd” (without quotes) into the Open text box and click OK.

Type the following command one by one followed by hitting Enter key

del c:autorun.* /f /q /a
del d:autorun.* /f /q /a
del e:autorun.* /f /q /a

c, d, e each represents drive letters on Windows system. If thereare more drives or partitions available, continue to command byaltering to other drive letter. Note that you must also clean theautorun files from USB flash drive or portable hard disk as theexternal drive may also be infected.

In Task Manager, click on File -> New Task (Run…).

Type “regedit” (without quotes) into the Open text box and click OK.

Navigate to the following registry key

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWinlogon

Check if the value name and value data for the key is correct (thevalue data of userint.exe include the path which may be different thanC 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.

Hard disk drives are not opening

I think that you didnt get rid of the virus yet.
Rerun your antivirus in safe mode , also run spybot and adaware in safe mode too.
