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

    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.
