The autorun is not compatible with your operating system, that is why the blogger is poping up, so just eject the drive, remove the disc, and refresh the PC, message should go with this. Good luck

Hi,

Remove the disc from your D drive as the Autorun app is not compatible with your XP operating system.

If this doesn't resolve your problem, post back a Comment so one of us can help your further.

C:\resycled\boot.com is not a valid win 32 application.


I just had this problem and went to a few forums for answers.


Update your anti-virus program and restart your PC in safe mode by repeatedly pressing the "F8" key upon restarting.

When in safe mode, use your anti-virus program to scan your computer. When the scan is done it should tell you if it found anything that could be bad for your system.

When scan is finished, go to My Computer - Tools - Folder Options - View

When in "View" click on the button that says "show hidden files and folders". Select the "apply" button, then "OK".

Now, go to your infected drive (the one you cannot access) and "right-click" the drive followed by "open".

You should see the hidden folder "Recycler - resycled - Autorun.ini"

Select the files and then press and hold the "shift" and "delete" keys at the same time, then press the "enter" key. Restart your computer, and you're done. You should now be able to access the drive that had a problem.

If you do not see these files then chances are your anti-virus may have already taken care of the virus affecting your computer.

hope this helps

I have a hard drive with windows 95 and i am trying to install windows xp professional addition but it comes back saying you can't intall this version of windows on this system


Windows 95 uses the FAT 32 system and uses a boot-up partition that will not recognize a windows xp default system install that uses the NTFS system. You can do it the other way around though, if XP is installed first, or another drive you have with XP on it is the first drive set to boot in your BIOS XP will recognize WIN 95 on its FAT 32 partition and either let you boot from that partition when you first start up your computer or when in XP right clicking a WIN 95 application and setting its properties to run as a Win 95 environment. Solution I would use if I were you would be to download Microsoft's free Virtual PC application from their website and run a full version of WIN 95 in its own virtual environment. Win 95 will run about 10 times faster than it ever would on its own partion if run under XP.

Drive not opening


To solve this error, follow this steps:

1>> Run Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del or right click on Taskbar)
2.>> Stop wscript.exe process if available by highlighting the process name and clicking End Process.
3.>> Then terminate explorer.exe process.
4. >>In Task Manager, click on File -> New Task (Run…).
5.>> Type “cmd” (without quotes) into the Open text box and click OK.
6>>. Type the following command one by one followed by hitting Enter key:

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

c, d, e each represents drive letters on Windows system. If there are more drives or partitions available, continue to command by altering to other drive letter. Note that you must also clean the autorun files from USB flash drive or portable hard disk as the external drive may also be infected.
7. In Task Manager, click on File -> New Task (Run…).
8. Type “regedit” (without quotes) into the Open text box and click OK.
9. Navigate to the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
10. Check if the value name and value data for the key is correct (the value data of userint.exe include the path which may be different than C drive, which is also valid, note also the comma which is also needed):

“Userinit”=”C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,”(correct this)

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