Good day
hope someone can help

currently i had problem going into my other drive using the normal method (which is double click in My computer window.) it will prompt me access denied.
But i can go into the drive by doing a right click of the drive and selected open manually.

this problem only happen in my drive D, E, F, G ( My C and D share the same harddisk and my F and G share another harddisk and my E is an external harddisk)

abit of the history :

I had just upgrade a second hand PC and had just formatted the C drive yesterday, and had install it with Microsoft Window XP Pro version 2002 service pack 2
My system run on a AMD athlon xp 2400+ 2 GHZ with a 1.50 GB of Ram.

After installing the window XP and all the drivers, i also installed the AVG free anti-spyware, after installing i do a scan for the PC and all the drive and it discover the a number of the cftmon.exe file had infected with the trojan.VB.aqt and thus i do a clean using the AVG after which i install the spybot S & D and do another scan and found nothing and now had just uninstall the spybot S & D.

after restarting my computer to finish up with all the installing, i try to go into my other drive and it prompt me ACCESS DENIED

Is there any method to repair this problem making it go back to normal ?? (going into the other drive by using double clicking the drive icon)

Hope someone can help

You probably need to "take ownership".

It's time to check the drive, I think. And take a look at Event Viewer.

How To Run CHKDSK In XP - http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...b;en-us;Q315265

What is the Event Viewer, and Should I Care - Ask Leo! - http://ask-leo.com/what_is_the_event_viewe...uld_i_care.html

A history of malware problems...doesn't make diagnosis easy. Unless you did a clean install of the system and subsequently initiated a program of better security practices/measures.
