Windows cannot find G:\RECYCLER\e621ca05.exe

August 2015

While using the external hard drive of the Samsung S2 portable, there is a possibility that the user may see a message popping up saying: Windows did not find "G:\RECYCLER\e621ca05.exe". There are two simple steps to rectify this problem. Firstly, download the 'AutorunExterminator' file, extract and click twice on AutorunExterminator. By doing this the recycler will be eliminated from the hard drive. Secondly, for Windows XP, type 'CMD' into Run and press OK. For Windows 7 and Vista versions, go to 'CMD' from the Start Menu to choose 'run as administrator'. Run attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.* command where g stands for external disk drive, thus unhiding all the files.
