In My Comouter - if I click on C drive I get the following message.......... Windows cannot find autorun.exe therefore there is nothing showing there. I have system restored and that failed.

click here


Scroll down to "Error message: Windows cannot find Autorun.exe" and follow the advice given.

One thing I can't understand though, if you can't access your C:\ drive, how do you delete/rename the file?! Maybe someone else with more knowledge can assist here?

Hope this helps a bit :)

I think that somehow a file called autorun.inf has got itself copied into the root of the C drive. Have you perhaps copied a CD onto the C drive?

One way to access C drive could be to go to Start>Run and type cmd. A window will open. Type help>c:\help.txt which will give you a list of commands that you can use. In windows look for this file and print it for future reference. You will be able to get to the file you want probably using cd and dir. You may have to reboot to safe mode to delete certain files

You should be able to access the C drive by right clicking it and selecting "Explore"

.... and while you are right clicking on the C drive, note what action is in bold at the top of the list. This is the default action for double clicking.
