    Can't access C:drive or HDD?

    When i booted up my laptop and tried accessing my HDD it came up with the following error message.

    I've never seen this error message before, so i haven't a clue what the problem is. Hopefully i don't have to format? :/

    right click explore, install some antivirus software. The microsoft free one is good.

    It looks like you have picked up the autorun virus. Have a look for the autorun.inf in the root of the folder.

    I've right clicked and clicked "explore" and it's still coming up with that message. And I'm running AVG 9.0.

    Can you open any folders or drives at all?

    You may need to reset default file associations if something has overwritten them, try merging the two attached reg files to your registry

    Default_Folder.zip
