Hi,

I have no idea when exactly this began happening, or what I did which caused this. Take a look at attached screenshot please.

Anyone able to help? I really dont want to go thru a reinstall again.

something like this happened on one of my removable drives. It had a virus on it and I had to format it. Now I'm not sure why this is happening on your C Drive, but there's likelihood of ur drive having a virus on it.

Okay,

Found 7 different types of files named autorun at the root of both partitions. Here's the list:
  • autorun.bat
  • autorun.bin
  • autorun.inf
  • autorun.reg
  • autorun.txt
  • autorun.vbs
  • autorun.wsh
All of these have Read-Only, Hidden, and System file attributes. Whenever I delete them manually, they will appear again on their own.

Please, help.

I'm also experiencing this problem. I'm convinced this is virus based but despite doing all the usual things (turning off sys restore - booting in safe mode) etc I don't seem to be able to rectify the problem. Might it be that my system has been damaged by a virus which has subsequently been removed leaving just the damage behind?
