Hi Verify first whether your system is affected by "TROJAN" or any other viruses
If "YES" Remove the smae by using "ANTIVIRUS" S/W (Preferably AVG !!)

Go to C:\Windows (O.K how to open C or C:\Windows is your questions ..Correct !! MAy be try to right click and use open with option..and select C:\Windows\Explorer.exe OR system may open show openwith on browse and select c:\windows\explorer.exe)

Open REGEDIT file
Find "MOUNTPOINTS2" using Ctrl + F
Delete the same
Repeat the process unless all the "MOUNTPOINTS2" are deleted

Now your system will be OK. (reveied these inputs from thsi forum only)=Thanks to the member

Hi Mvmeswar !

Thanks for the tip and it really work I can open all the drives normally.But it comes back once the computer restarts.
I'm doing it everytime I restart the pc.

I would really appreciate if you can help me out to resolve this permanently.
I'm using Avast 4.5 and its doing the auto update everyday and it could not find out any trogen or virus in the pc.

Please advice !!
