    What operating system?

    Is this the drive that the OS is installed on?

    i am using windows xp..the os is installed on c: drive and i have 4 more drives..i have this problem in all drives..when i right click any hard drive,i am getting the first option as "Auto" and not "open" so i deleted the "autorun.inf" file in all drives and perfermed error checking for system files..it worked..but again that autorun.inf file created and the problem comes again..
