Hi. I have this huge problem regarding my laptop/usb drive. I plugged in my USB flash disk in my laptop and what i saw when i opened it is only a shorcut of the drive it self. Let's say, the usb drive's name is "Removable Disk (E:)", a shorcut of that drive is the only thing i see in my flash drive. when i tried to click it, i was directed to the files inside my usb drive. So in order to fix this, i copy the whole files and paste it back to the root folder, then delete the shorcut. However, if i unplugged it and then plug it again, the same problem occurs.

I have this software, USB Disk security, so whenever i plug in my usb drive, it detects AUTORUN.INF.. It can be deleted, however, if i plugged my usb drive, the detection keeps recurring, and the same problem occurs again.

I'm not sure if my usb drive has a problem or is it my laptop? Because if i tried to insert it to other desktops, there is no such problem that occurs.

I hovered my mouse in the "shorcut" I'm seeing in my usb drive and it says "C:\Windows\System32\rundll32...

Please help me with this...my other flash drive and hard drive are also affected whenever i insert them in my laptop.
