I just went through a long process to remove malware on my computer using the kind assistance of one of the staff members here on this site. During this process the following was performed to get rid of a bug;

Only thing I did was remove D:\autorun.exe Infected: Trojan.Win32.Nosok.bd 1

which was a quote from the person helping me.

I was told I'm clean now but I can't open my D-drive by double-clicking. Instead, I get the following error message:

Windows cannot find 'autorun.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search.

Can anyone help me restore this functionality? All of the other items that show up under My Computer will open by double-clicking.

Thanks for your help.

Do you have a valid XP CD?

If so, place it in your CD ROM drive and follow the instructions below:
  • Click on START-->RUN and type sfc /scannow (note the space) (Let this run undisturbed until the window with the blue progress bar goes away)

- Which stands for System File Checker, retrieves the correct version of the file from %Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache or the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file.

If you want to see what was replaced, right-click My Computer and click on Manage. In the new window that appears, expand the Event Viewer (by clicking on the + symbol next to it) and then click on System.
