If it happens to you that you are not able to open the drives by double-click, then your system may be infected with virus. When this virus infects your windows, it automatically creates a autorun.inf in the root directory of each drive. This autorun.inf file is usually hidden, read only and is a system file. This virus also disables folder option. This is not a major problem and can be fixed by deleting autorun.inf file.
Follow the steps below to fix this problem:
- Open Start > Run. Now type cmd and press enter. Command prompt window will open.
- Type cd/
- Type attrib -r -h -s autorun.inf
- Now type del autorun.inf
- Now type d: and press enter for d: drive partition and repeat steps 3 and 4.
- Repeat step 5 for all your hard disk drives.
- Restart your computer.
