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.

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.
