    Can you try this, it may not work, but I'd like to confirm if it does or not (I'll wait for the reply)

    Download RatsCheddar.zip http://www.castlecops.com/zx/sjpritch25/RatsCheddar.zip

    It contains a program written by Rathat, and it is a Policy Controller.
    Save and extract this program to the desktop.
    Once extracted, click on the RatsCheddar.exe file.
    Enable everything, then click Exit
    Reboot your Computer.

    Is your mouse set right.Check your Control Panel/Mouse and maybe install
    and transmit new batteries button if you have battteries.

    It's not a mouse problem.

    It's related to spyware/trojan/virus that caused either an autorun.inf (system file) in D: that should be removed, or possibly the spyware/trojan/virus is still there.

    Yes, befor the scan that kind of Autorun.inf showed, i had Nod32 antivirus and could not be deletet. I installed Kaspersky , i scaned disks, Kaspesky deletet a lot of Viruse/files....Could some file be missing or maybe is still infected?

    Go to Folder Options in Control Panel (or inside any folder select "Tools--> Folder Options-->View"

    Select "Show hidden files"
    And deselect "Hide protected OS files"

    Click on Start-->Search-->All files and folders

    Type in autorun.inf
    And search in D:

    The autorun.inf file found in D:\autorun.inf, can be deleted (right click delete)

    Then try opening D drive again

    If it works, go back to folder Options and restore defaults

    edit:

    My damn "f" key keeps getting stuck!!

    Actually it won't matter.

    Inside Search there's a option for More Advanced Options "Search Hidden and Search System files" that you can tick.

    Noob Killer


    Hi,
    You might want to download this little programme called 'NOOB KILLER": from here: http://martinperez.asia/2007/03/03/winning-the-fight-against-the-taga-lipa-are-virus/

    It's a small but effective programme. You are probably still infected and this particular little nasty travels through external drives so make sure to run it on all usbs, flashdrives, external drives too.

    Hope that helps.

    I agree. AVG picks up stuff that none of the others manage to detect. As a safeguard i would recommend that you run the NOOB killer anyway on your machine.

    cheers
