    just wanna ask this question;

    IVE GOT A PROBLEM WITH MY HARD DRIVES, THAT WHEN I DOUBLE CLICK EACH DRIVE, A DIALOG BOX WILL APPEAR STATING THAT " IT CANNOT RUN ON WIN32 MODE".

    WHAT DOES IT MEAN? IS THERE ANY WAY TO BRING IT BACK TO FORMER SETTINGS? DO I NEED TO CONFIGURE SOMETHING?

    Probably your computer is infected with a virus, check for a hidden file named 'autorun.inf' in the root of your drive. Use command prompt.

    goto Start -> Run, type "cmd" without the quotes and press enter. goto the drive, say D:, then type in "del /ah autorun.inf", this will delete the file. But this won't remove the infection from your system, try a good anti-virus!
