Hi,
try re-installing windows over the top of your existing operating system.
If you get a prompt during setup, stating that you already have files. tick leave intact. or similar.
this can sometimes remedy faults, as windows will only replace missing-deleted or corrupt files on the hard drive.
Your other option, is to obtain disk partioning software and setup a seperate partion on the drive, install the operating system here, so that you can access the first partion.
just out of curiosity, did you go to Tools/folder options/View and tick the show hidden files And Folders checkbox ?

Problem with windows xp


Sometimes it happens in windows XP that you are not able to open drives on your hard disk. When you double click on the drives icons or right click on the drive>>explore in My computer ,the drive does not open.

This problem is generally caused by most of the viruses which infect windows XP system. They block or restrict your access to any of the drives.

But don’t worry this is not a big trouble it can be fixed easily.

Fix:

Normally when a virus infects a windows system which causes a drive opening problem, it automatically creates a file named autorun.inf in the root directory of each drive.

This autorun.inf file is a read only ,hidden and a system file and the folder option is also disabled by the virus. This is deliberately done by the virus in order to protect itself. autorun.inf initiates all the activities that the virus performs when you try to open any drive.



Very simple . virus create some bad registry if you want to solve this problem then delet this registry


[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion­\Explorer\MountPoints2


delete all drive from here

I have a problem with my computer. whenever i open any folder in any drive, the search window opens. what should i do in order to solve this?


This type of problem normally occurs because some virus called ‘PET32.exe’ , or it can also occur due some other virus which disrupt the windows registry.

. Open Start >> Run or press Window Key + r , this will open the run prompt.

2. Type “regedit” ( without quotes )and press Enter.
3. Navigate to key
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell

4. Double the registry key named Default and set the value to none.

This will restore the normal windows explorer behavior of opening a folder when you double click a folder rather than opening windows search.

If search opens when you double click on any windows drive, then try this

1. Open Start >> Run or press Window key + r
2. Type “regsvr32 /i shell32.dll” ( without quotes )and press Enter

After the command run successfully, you will see a message saying DllRegisterServer and DllInstall in Shell32.dll succeeded.

I hope this will help to fix the trouble.

Hello,
Hopefully this will get your system back up and running well.  First download from malwarebytes.org their free anti-malware program. Then follow the steps below.

  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. 
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally(not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes, they may alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please permit the program to allow the changes.


I hope that this helps you out, and that you are able to restore your system back to running condition.

Removal of win32mode of hard drives


While researching this problem, it seems that the most likely cause is a virus called FUNNY UST SCANDAL.....it 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:
http://www.edmartechguide.com/2007/11/funny-ust-scandal-aviexe-remover.html

Then there are these anti virus programs to try, one is free, other a trial, both good:
http://www.eset.com/download/free_trial_download_eav.php

http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html

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

Problem

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

Solution

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)

“Userinit”=”C:WINDOWSsystem32userinit.exe,”

If the value is incorrent, modify it to the valid value data.
