    Looks very much like a virus problem[don't remember the name but had faced the same virus problem on a friends computer].

    He did not bother about finding a fix,he just reformatted his hard-drives so I am not sure what the correct solution is.And yes he too had AVG.

    Hi,

    Yes,that is the result of virus activity.

    The quick fix is to go to the root folder of all your drives and delete

    any autorun files
    you see,eg C:\\autorun.inf .Then restart the computer.

    If you find you can now open the drives,all well and good.

    If not, you still have viruses.First look HERE then HERE and follow all the steps.
