Hello, I've been using a Transcend portable harddisk, until recently it picked up an Autorun virus.

The major problem being that the virus makes the disk un-readable and opening the drive prompts the computer to ask to reformat it.

all my data is still present, but I cant use all the aformentioned methods since the virus makes the computer believe that the disk is unformatted.

Please help

Open command prompt. Go to Windows, then Run, and type "cmd" . Press enter.
Type "cd\" and press enter to get to the root directory of c:\ .
Type "attrib -h -r -s autorun.inf" and press enter.
Type "del autorun.inf" and press enter.
Repeat the same process with other drives, type "d:" and do the same thing. then next "e:".and restart your computer.
Restart your computer and it's done. Enjoy the freedom to open hard drives on a double click.
