Hello,

Whenever I am trying to select a folder from Drive (D:), it is crashing with message - "Window Explorer has experienced a problem". During scan of Drive (D:) with Kaspersky, One folder - 'Recycler' is seen but it does not appear in Folder Drive (D:). All other hidden folders/files are visible.

Thanks

Regards
DNS

Try this :

Check whether the files are not in hidden mode. Follow the following steps.

Step 1:
*Click on the below link and download the file "AutorunExterminator"
*https://ccm.net/download/download-11613-autorun-exterminator
*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 from the below link
*https://ccm.net/download/download-105-malwarebytes
*Update it --> Perform "Full Scan"
*Note : Default selected option is "Quick Scan".
