If some viruses are attacked especially a variant of autorun. U'll see an "Open with..." dialog when u try to open a drive.
Here are the steps to delete it from ur hard drive.
Goto command prompt and goto the drive where u'll get the "Open with..." dialog.
To do this
step 1 : start -> run step 2 : type cmd step 3 : enter the drive name followed by a colon
It'll list out the attributes of all the files in the drive(only files, not folders and files inside that folders)
U'll see some of the files with attributes s h r
Type this code
attrib -s -h -r *.*
del <filename>.<extension> e.g del w.cmd del autorun.inf
NOTE: The files shown here are just an example. Original virus file may be of different name. The virus will affect any drive. I've just taken D: drive for illustration. THIS CODE SHOULD NOT BE USED IN "C:" DRIVE IF WINDOWS IS INSTALLED IN IT, AS THIS DRIVE CONTAINS SYSTEM FILES.
