Start->run->type "cmd" without qutotes.

D:\
D:\dir /a (shall all hidden files and directories)
see whether autorun.inf is there or not. I hope it will be there.

D:\attrib -h -s -r autorun.inf
D:\del autorun.inf

Like wise delete autorun.inf for other drives
And after that only restart the sytem. and double click it will open normally.


Do it in cmd mode only.

Hey gaurav, this problem happens only when there's a virus on the drive. Use Avast antivirus to delete all **** out.

you get it for free on avast.com and once you register on the site, they send you the serial to your mailbox.

Just for free doesn't mean that its weak, or something.

I've tried norton, mcafee, and the like....and all have failed in front of Avast!

And no, i'm not advertising here...All major tech houses recommend it (Digit, Chip magazines in india).

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

D,f drives "access is denied" on double click. but opens when rt clk and 'open'


What OS you're using?
Are you having Admin rights on the system you're trying to access the e&f drives?

If you have admin rights, then try to look at the security options of the drive (Right click on the drive and check properties). Make sure that your login name / your group is listed with full permissions.

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.

Cannot open my D drive by double clicking but it shows the option open with note pad help


You drive has been infected by a virus. but I think you can still open it by not double click rather to right click on the D drive and choose explore from the menu.
But this not the solution save the files somewhere and work out on removing the virus.
