Fixing disk drives not opening with double click


Sometimes, after a virus infection, disk drives, flash disks and other media will not open when double clicked, but only when right clicked then open is selected.

This is because of a hidden autorun file left by the virus infection and the antivirus failing to delete it.

To fix this do the following.


[ad#smallsquare]
Select run from the start menu and type cmd
if the drive with the problem is C:\ type C: and so on

write attrib autorun.ini -h -s -r

press enter then write

del autorun.ini

close everything and restart your computer.
