Hello,

Whenever is plug any USB drive to my laptop(having original windows Vista) autorun gives error(failed to access drive), however drive is visible.
But when I open this drive folder, content is not Accessible. Only icons of every folder/file is available.

Please provide appropriate solution for the same.

Hello,

Check whether the files are not in hidden mode. Follow the following steps.
  • Step 1: Download the file "AutorunExterminator". Extract it --> Double-click on "AutorunExterminator" --> Plug your External hard drive now. This will remove the autorun.inf files from your External hard drive and also from the drives.
  • Step 2:
    • Click on "Start" -->Run --> type
      cmd
      and click on OK.
    • Here I assume your External hard drive as G: Enter this command :
      attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.* 
    • You can copy the above command --> Right-click in the Command Prompt and paste it. Note : Replace the letter g with your External hard drive letter. Now check for your files in External Drive.
  • Step 3: After that, download the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. * Update it --> Perform "Full Scan". Note : Default selected option is "Quick Scan".


Good Luck.
