1 Double Click on Drive does not open on 3rd December 2009, 3:32 pm

We all have experienced someday or the other, this problem of Windows XP
in which when we double click on the drive it does not open or some
dialog box opens up but not the drive. Yes, you know it right; the
problem is caused by some virus activity and if you don’t know

how to open this, here is the fix (just make sure that the virus has been removed, else the problem will persist):
When the problem happens, it means that there is a file named “Autorun.inf
in the root drive, but you will not be able to view it as it is a
system file. This file is rarely caught by the anti virus. This file
makes sure to run the virus and infect your system. This is the file
which is responsible to run the dialog box that appears on autoplay. So this is a useless file for sure.
Common sense says to delete this file but even that is not easy as it possesses system, hidden and read only attributes. So,
1. First go to cmd, type “attrib X:\Autorun.inf –s –r –h” without quotes where X is your drive name which is having the problem.
2. Now the file is visible and ready to delete.
3. After deleting the file, close the explorer and open it again
or just give a reboot to the computer, your problem is fixed.
Well this is the best and easy fix available without using any software.
