Hello,
Try this 1
1) Make sure Dot Net Framework is installed in your PC to run "AutorunExterminator"
Click on the below link and download the Dot Net Framework.
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=0856eacb-4362-4b0d-8edd-aab15c5e04f5&displaylang=en
2) Follow the instructions given in the step2. If the problem still exits then once again go to
folder options and check whether the changes made by you is saved or not.
Good Luck

Hello,
Try this 1
Click on Start --> Run --> Type cmd and press Enter. "Command Prompt" will be opened.
Here I assume your pen drive letter as G. Now enter the below command.
dir /ah g: --> Press Enter
Now can you see all your files or folders after executing the above command.
Good Luck
