I have 3 accounts on my computer

1 administrator & 2 limited accounts

recently the limited accounts cannot access any drives except C:.
I tried giving these accounts administrator rights, but still they are unable to access those drives

my account can access all drives, but i dont know why the limited accounts are unable to do so.

What happens? Do those drives appear in My Computer under those accounts?

What operating system?

when I try to open a drive other than C: (using a limited account), it says "you are not allowed"

I looked at the autorun.inf files on the unaccessible drives:
Code:
[autorun]
shellexecute=Recycled\ctfmon.exe
shell\Open(0)\command=Recycled\ctfmon.exe
shell=Open(0)
ctfmon.exe was detected as a trojan by Nod32 and i deleted it from Recycled too....since there are references to ctfmon.exe in the autorun files, i feel that my autorun files were overwritten, hence the problem

can anyone post how an unaltered autorun.inf file should look here?

It shouldn't look like anything. You probably have multiple infections. Please post a log from HijackThis in the Malware forum.
