    USB Pen Drive not opening

    Advert.
    Hi Everyone,

    I am Mohan Krishna.... This is my first post and regarding USB Pen Drive.....

    I have Kingston 4GB Pen Drive. It got viruses, which I cleaned with AVAST, THREATFIRE, SPYWARE DOCTOR softwares. In the My Computer, it is not opening, when it is double clicked or Right-Click (on the Pen Drive Icon) > Open / Explore. It is redirecting to Open with... Dialog box. When I selected Right Click (on the Pen Drive Icon) >Autoplay, a dialog asking Open the folder is shown, from which the Contents in the drive are seen.

    How to rectify this problem? Please help me... TIA to all!

    Re: USB Pen Drive not opening

    It usually happens when your antivirus removes the viruses but references are left to autorun files created by virus and hence when try to open, it shows OPEN with dialog box and "always use this application" box is grayed out.

    If content of flash drive is not important then you can format it .

    OR

    simply open my computer and in address bar type drive letter of your drive, say its M:
    then t ype
    M:


    OR

    Goto Run --> type "cmd" then you will get command line,
    now type :

    Code:
    fsutil volume dismount M:
    Here M: is your PEN drive letter,

    After this try to open your drive normally.

    Re: USB Pen Drive not opening

    We have this worm - explorer.exe which forbids opening any pen drives...it has further evolved and automatically puts the attributes "SHR" back as fast as we remove them...and cannot delete..ESET NOD32 removes this virus but infected and not cleaned PCs put the virus back with a vengeance...can anyone suggest a good remedy?

    Well I suggest you to install Avira Antivirus and do a full system scan. Also install Spyboat search and Destroy problem.

    Then let me know if it solves it or not.

    It's the Recycler worm, something akin to Explorer virus... it automatically converts your files and folders to .exe

    Best vaccine you can get from ESET Nod32

    ESET also removes the registry entry so that the virus is contained....
