Hello,

For some reason all of a sudden i can't open my C:\ drive or any other drives!!!

Instead it opens the window asking what program i want to use in order to open it.


Thanks in advance,
Sludeking

Hello sludeking,

Your system is infected with a virus. It won't allow you to open drives. Moreover your enabling/disabling the option to see hidden files from Folder Options won't have any effect. If you had selected the option of "Show all files" previously its good else please go to command prompt and see if there is any file with the name sal.exe.xls(or sal.xls.exe) in any of your drives. Also see if there is any processes called msime80.exe amd msfir80.exe by typing msconfig in run command. And if there isn't anything i specified above then go to command prompt and open autorun.inf file and remove everything that is written into it and save it and reboot. Your drives will open as they used to open previously. Get back to me if you have any problem.

Cheers...
Regards :)

If you suspect there is some sort of virus or malware please read through the Malware forum and follow the instructions.

Thank you.
