It will open with Windows Explorer (explorer.exe) but I'm sorry I can't show you how to do that. Bit weird.

How about doing a System Restore back to before the scan.

I found the following. -

Another way to go about it is to open a cmd prompt (Start > Run... > CMD)
and type

attrib -r -s -h c:\autorun.inf

del c:\autorun.inf


Let us know how you get on. Good luck.



(There is also a MS Tool here


http://www.techsupportforum.com/sectools/s...Disinfector.exe

Which is probably the easiest way to go).

I am not sure on that clusclus. It would seem that you type in the top line and press ENTER, and then the next line and ENTER. But I am not totally sure on that. I am passing on what I found.

I think I would be inclined to use the Disinfector tool from MSoft which will do it automatically for you. (I have downloaded it and tucked it away for future reference).

What program did you run intially (key element) that casued the problem?
What AV software are you using?
Two key elements


Autorun.inf is used to get cd's to autostart upon insertion and should not have anything to do with the issue
In the beginning there was the command line.
