My computer will not play my CD's anymore. I'll place the CD in the drawer, it closes, and there are a few green light flickers like it's getting ready to do something and nothing at all happens.


If you have a Windows OS, you may have an issue with Autorun being disabled or no default program being associated with the CD. (To check open the File Explorer and see if the optical drive lists any content. Press the Windows key and E simultaneously (or double-click on the Computer/My Computer icon for Windows versions before Windows 8).) I will note that some Windows 8 computers will query a user about how to respond to a disc with a message that disappears before you notice it.

If no disc is listed, try using a cleaning disc to clean the lens. If you still get no response, check if the discs work in another computer. If they do, consider replacing the optical drive. (The drives do fail. Since a new internal OEM DVD burner will cost ~$20 for a standard desktop (SATA interface), they aren't worth fixing. Slim drives for laptops and ultra-small form factor desktops cost a little bit more.) If your computer is older and uses IDE (40-pin for desktop, 44-pin for laptops) ribbon cables, the drives cost more. There are adapters that will work in some desktops.

If the disc is listed, double-click on the optical drive listing. See if you get a response from double-clicking a file on the disc. If that is the case, then Autorun for CDs has been disabled on the computer. Go to the Control Panel and then select the Programs section. (Start > Control Panel for Windows 7 and earlier; for Windows 8, press Windows key+ X and select the Control Panel or activate the Charms menu (Windows key +C) or hover on the upper right side of your monitor and drop down. Choose Settings and then Control Panel). Select the Default Programs and then the change AutoPlay settings. Scroll down to set the defaults for CDs. Click Save to make sure the setting holds. You may have to reset the AutoPlay settings at intervals. (There was some issues with malware on external storage that caused Microsoft to decide to disable AutoPlay for user "protection".)

If double-clicking on the file doesn't work, try right-clicking and choose Open With. Then search for a program that will play your music. You can set this program for future use from the default programs section of the Programs Control Panel. (Use the Associate file type with a program or Set Program Access and Computer Defaults links.)

I hope this helps.

C:application cannot run in win32 mode


I've ran across with this virus called UST Funny Scandal. Its actually a worm virus that spreads immediately on all local drives and it originated somewhere in Asia.

When using YM, it actually sends automatically to all your friends this certain virus program via PMs. And the behavior of your messenger suddenly becomes erratic.

NOD32 could actually help but for sometime after removing the pesky "autorun.inf" which is hidden, eventually your drive won't work the same as it was before.

Best solution for this is to download a program called NOOB Killer and run it. After running it restart your computer and you'll be fine.

Also, turn-off your autoplay so whenever you plug a flash drive infected with a virus it won't run automatically.

To turnoff autolplay:

Run the RUN Command and then type gpedit.msc ( .msc stands for Microsoft Console). After running it, click the Administrative Templates and then click the System folder on the right pane look for "Turn Off Autoplay" and double-click it. Click the radio-button "enabled" and from the drop-down list click "all drives" and click apply and ok and close the gpeditor.


Enjoy. =))

Try freeing some space using Disk Cleanup. You can also try deleting files stored in the history through internet options.

C:/,d:/ problem


hi there,
firstly u had a virus on your system... but u know this aleady... so lets deal with what the virus left behind...

try this out:-

Open the Windows "Start" menu and select "Run...". In the Run box type

C:\autorun.inf -r -h -s and click OK
then
E:\autorun.inf -r -h -s
OK and so on for all affected drives.

Finally check the volume root of each drive for autorun.inf file.
Is that file present in any drive? If so, manually delete it.

then do this:-

1. You have to tell Windows to show hidden and protected system files first.

2. Then you should search your computer for all instances of files with the name autorun (ANY extension) and delete them. DO NOT DOUBLE-CLICK on discs that have any such files because you will again be infected!

3. Launch regedit - but make sure u backup your reg. first...

a ) Find the key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows NT/Current Version/Winlogon
and check the value of the parameter Userinit. This should read C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe, nothing more.
If Windows is installed on another disc, then, of course the disc will be indicated.

b ) Completely delete the following key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Windows/Current Version/Explorer/MountPoints2.

This last step should be repeated for all user accounts on your computer. You should then restart your computer and that's it.
