How do I rename the Urdrive when it shows up on My Computer?


Something to add to HoboPelican's solution, if you open the autorun.inf file with notepad or wordpad you can change the name on the last line where it says "LABEL = KINGSTON URDRIVE" then just replace KINGSTON URDRIVE with the name you would like to call the drive.

Hi amanvirdi198

The problem seems to be an infection of a virus which has changed the icon of your removable drive and also when you open it up you get the "open with" option by default.

Please follow the below instructions.

  • Select show all files option from the folder options which you find in the start menu the path is :-Start - Control Panel - Tools menu - Folder options.
  • In folder options go in the view tab and select show hidden and system files.
  • Once you are done selecting this option , all you need to do is open your removable drive by right clicking on it and select the 'Open' Option , Or if that does not work use the explore option as you have been doing already .
  • You will find that the hard disk now shows up the contents, so you need to find the autorun.inf file in the root drive , once you find it , you have to 'delete' that file, also delete any suspicious hidden .exe file which is in hidden state and of a small size , which is nothing but a virus which spreads as soon as you plug in your external hard drive and the autorun.inf file get's executed automatically.
  • Therefore once when you delete the autorun file , you should have your hard drive working properly.
  • The above method was the manual method , now if you want to delete the autorun problem automatically via a software , i recommend you to download autorun virus killer by clicking on this link http://bit.ly/k3dOve

Hope this helps...:)

Your feed back would be appreciated.

To create an Autorun-enabled CD-ROM, proceed as follows:
  • Create an Autorun.inf File
    Autorun.inf is a text file that is located in the root folder of your application CD-ROM. It provides to the computer the name and the location of the startup program for your application that is installed when the CD-ROM is inserted. The Autorun.inf file can also contain optional information including the following:
  • The name of a file that contains an icon that represents your application's CD-ROM drive. This icon appears in Windows Explorer instead of the standard drive icon.
  • Additional commands for the shortcut menu that appears when the user right-clicks the CD-ROM icon. You can also specify the default command that runs when the user double-clicks the icon. Autorun.inf files are similar to .ini files.
  • The [autorun] section contains the default Autorun commands. All Autorun.inf files must have an [autorun] section.
  • icon: Specifies the path and the file name of an application-specific icon for the CD-ROM drive.
  • open: Specifies the path and the file name of the startup application.

Autorun.infThe following is an example of a simple Autorun.inf file. It specifies Filename.exe as the startup application. The second icon represents the CD-ROM drive instead of the standard drive icon.
[autorun]
open=Filename.exe
icon=Filename.ico

Opening of drives


I have seen this several times and it is brought about due to a virus that creates an autorun file (autorun.ini).

In this file when you double click the drive, executes the file and in the autorun file exists any of the following: -
Microsoftpowerpoint.exe
smss.exe
.... or many others.

It is good thing that you have a strong antivirus which seems to have removed the viruses and therefore when the information file is opened, it does not find the executables it was supposed to run. That is why it asks for a program to open.

You can prove this by right clicking on the drive to see a shortcut menu and in this menu, the bolded menu will be the action taken when double clicked and the possibility is that you will find Autorun bolded.

To resolve the issue do the following:
1) Open My computer program or windows explorer.
2) Right click on the drive and open or explore it.
3) Locate the file Autorun and delete it. If the file is not shown, from the folder options choose show all files. This is because sometimes this file may be hidden.

Try double clicking the drives again to see if you get he same error.

NOTE: Many virus developers have made possible for people to install/run viruses in there own computers by simply double clicking the drives like flash disk.

Autorun file


is there and U3 software installed on the device? could you post the contence of th INI file for us to see?

it sounds like you have a program on the pendrive autorunnig when you connect the pendrive this could be some software that can with the drive from the manufacture or something more nasty like a trojan. if you really want to fix it copy everything you want off the drive then format it, this is the quick dirty way of fixing the problem but if you have a U3 style smart disk the autorun software will stay intact.
