    Can you open the local disk by right-click and open?

    This remove by following steps first go to run .
    then write " regedit" that is registry then find " ctrl+f" in this box write "mountpoints2" and delete it ......
    then again press "ctrl+f" again find mountpoints2 until all these files are not deleted

    If you can't open by double-click or right-click and open, it most likely has an autorun.inf file on root, which usually comes from worms that spread by flash drives. You should format your USB flash drive if you're using one, and do a full scan. If it doesn't help, reformat again and don't plug in everyone's USB flash drive in your computer.

    Cheers
