What will i do in a brand new external hdd from freecom with 298 G,when i connect to my laptop dont show any icon,what is wrong with may external hdd?


please try unhide the settings..

Steps are as follows:

Open My computer,
Tools, Folder Options,
Check Show Hidden Files,
Check show system files..
Then check your files from the My computer icon..

The problem would be sometimes once your hard drive being infected by the virus, it will hide your files especially the NOTEPAD.EXE virus. It replicate your original folder and hide it, then it will show a copied folder which is also thesame with your original folder.(ex: the original folder would be PICTURES, then once it infected by the virus, the PICTURES folder will now replaced as NOTEPAD.EXE folder, then the original was been hide)..

Thanks

Window can not find gphone.exe


Hi,
gphone.exe is nowadays one of the most dangerous virus spreading very fastly.Its a trojan and changes your IE homepage and sends tries to open gtalk and yahoo messenger.It even sends messages to gtalk contacts.Its icon is just like that of folder icon and people thinking of folder click on it get infected by the virus.
Gphone virus basically is a 260 kb .exe file which looks like a folder and it can take any name of any other folder if you have clicked on the virus folder which looks like a folder but it isnt.If you have a folder name “comptalks” in your D drive it will make a exe file in the folder named comptalks.exe and if you click on that exe file it too work as a virus.It makes .exe files in all the folders you have with the name of the folder.
To remove the gphone.exe virus you just need to follow simple steps:
Go to Task Manager ->Processes and then click on gphone.exe and click on end process.
After that manually go to folder where gphone.exe is present and simply delete it.
Or simply search for the exe file clicking which started sending messages through gtalk. If you clicked on 1.exe search for that file on task manager and then delete it.


Good luck.

Usb flash drive icon changes into folder icon


This issue may have resulted from a virus infection on the machine the drive was plugged into.

You’ll need to delete the file autoruns.inf located on your flash drive.

By default, Windows hides this file, so before you can delete it you must make a couple of changes (you may reverse these after you’ve finished):

Open My Computer
Tools
Folder Options…
Click on the View tab
Under “Hidden files and folder” choose “Show hidden files and folders”
Remove the tick from “Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)
OK

Go back to My Computer and click on your flash drive. If you can’t open it that way, try right clicking on it and choose “Explore.”

Find the autoruns.inf file, right click on it and choose “Delete.” Confirm “Yes.”

Unplug and re-plug the drive in. You should be back to normal.

Hope that helps.
