View Full Version : Can't Open C Drive Folder (Win 98)

17-10-2001, 10:09 AM
The c drive folder (in My Computer)would not open when I double-clicked it (it tries to autorun!). When I right-click the folder I see that 'AutoPlay' is highlighted as the default operation.

How can I get 'Open' as the default? My investigations into the registry and file types menu have been fruitless so far.

Have you recently partitioned the hard drive? and didnt go through the 're-naming' drive letters process? or it could be a virus?

I had to remove a virus (Blackstone By memory)off a friends computer recently & he said the only folder he could open was my documents. when i had a look it had even taken over My documents. So as previous post said Check for Virus.

Since you have an autorun option on the drive, there must be a 'autorun.inf' on the root directory of C:\

Delete this, and the autorun menu option will disappear.
