I had this problem too, then I made a new topic here and guys like Ravi and Manmeent helped me out her's what Ravi wrote (only instead of C write E and F):
go to command prompt and write this command

c:\> attrib -r -s -h autorun.inf
c:\> del autorun.inf
d:\> attrib -r -s -h autorun.inf
d:\> del autorun.inf
restart the pc
And here's the best and easyest suggestion of what Manmeet wrote(it worked for me!):

1Open Start >> Run and type regsvr32 /i shell32.dll
2. press ok
3. You will see a message DllRegisterServer and DllInstall in shell32.dll succeeded
4. that's it
SFE and tol PLEASE write how you solved this problem!
thank u guys(ravi,jusk).
thanks! it really worked. I searched everywhere for a solution and this one was very easy and it worked.
Thanks Jusk
e:>attrib -r -s -h autorun.inf
e:\> del autorun.inf and

Hi all...
I've got a problem with your method:
c:/> attrib -r -s -h autorun.inf

It says:
'C:/' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file...


For all of ya who say that when they open command prompt and type:-

c:\> attrib -r -s -h autorun.inf

and it says 'c:\' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

Type this first:-


It will open a new line starting with C:\> and then type the commands that freddy has said in his post,

and when ya have typed the command of the C: drive, type F:, G: or whatever the names of other drives you have in ur pc and again type the same commands listed by freddy.

Ya problem is solved enjoy!!!
I made this batch file which does all the drives I have then renamed each drive which was also necessary.
All drives now open normally. Note that each pause allowed you to see what happened.
Prior to all of this I installed recovery console and reset master boot record.
I also ran hijackthis_sfx.exe and mbam-setup.exe


attrib -r -s -h autorun.inf
del autorun.inf

attrib -r -s -h autorun.inf
del autorun.inf

attrib -r -s -h autorun.inf
del autorun.inf

attrib -r -s -h autorun.inf
del autorun.inf

attrib -r -s -h autorun.inf
del autorun.inf

sorry for my English I had this same problem I can't open my drive and I used that it really work with
my pc

first you do that

go to run and type

c:\> attrib -r -s -h autorun.inf
c:\> del autorun.inf
d:\> attrib -r -s -h autorun.inf
d:\> del autorun.inf

and after that rename local drive anything like (softwereeeeeeeee)

thank you bro
Thanks roni.. Problem is solved by using same method mentioned by you and some other members also.
Thank you Thank you THANK YOU! Combofix is definitely the way to go! I was sitting here reading through all of these and realized that none of the methods above and on page 1 worked for me! I thought my computer was "extra" fudged up....but thank you Combofix! and whoever mentioned this first.
I resolved the similar problem by following just what you guys wrote here.


Just don't forget to restart your computer to take this affect.
Hi guys... I've tried your method:
C:\> attrib -r -s -h autorun.inf
C:\> del autorun.inf
but something's wrong...
"'c:/' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file." and nothing changes after restarting pc...
what can you say about it?????
please help me...
Hi for me none of this solutions worked!! but I have another solutions thats working perfectly and easy.

go to windows instalation folder , open regedit and
Completely delete the following key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Windows/Current Version/Explorer/MountPoints2.
This last step should be repeated for all user accounts on your computer. You should then restart your computer and that's it.
