Hello devil at play,

Lets see whats going on here.
Could you copy the -complete- error into your next reply? :)
Or possibly make a screenshot and upload that to your next reply.

Lets see if we can get a reading of it.
Follow these steps:

Go to Start and click "Run"
In the white box type: "CMD"
A black dos box will appear.
In the box type this: "dir d:\ > read.txt"
after that is done type this: "notepad read.txt"
A notepad file will pop up. Please copy the content of that notepad file into your next reply.

Regards,
Olrik

hello ,

as you are saying then you can not access drives then firht click on drive ande select explore option it would open your drive.
in case explore option is not available for the time being type drive letter in address bar
for eg:- if you want to open drive d: then type d: in address bar and Enter drive d: would open .

Removed

please let me know the results.

thanks

Sounds like the association for opening your hard drive has been messed up some how. Go to the Doug Knox web site and download

Drive Association Fix (Restores default settings for hard drives)

Directions for it's use are at the top of the page. See if that helps.

its true the tool is designed for specific virus .but it can be used for fixing disk drive issues as this virus also causes same kind of problem.
this tool is just simple vb script which would not produce any HARM to your computer even if it is used. i have used this tool on many of my friends computer and i am happy with its results.
therefore i suggested devil at play to use that tool
