  1. I recently picked up some viruses that caused my C drive not to open. I have removed all the viruses however my C drive will not open. How can I restore and/or view files on this drive? Win XP - OS

    Open My Computer
    Right Click on C drive
    Select Open

    Now in this folder (C Drive) there will be an "autorun.inf" file (you may need to select "show all files" in folder options, to see it)

    The inf should not be there, please remove it

    Check opening C drive again after that

    Got it taken care of. There was still a virus there. I use run/regidit to restore some files. I'm in business!
