    right click on its icon, see if theres an option in the drop-down menu named 'autorun'. if there is, use the option below it named 'open'. if that dosent work, try and use the 'explore' option. hope that helps you.

    transporter84 you have been previously warned to stop using the annoying font size and color.

    Do not do it again.

    Transporter, do you live outside the US/Canada/UK? If so, I understand the spelling, but otherwise, please try, as you may see, one of your typos could be misconstrued and found offensive.

    It is a virus, there is a method for removing it, which does not require you to enter registry, etc, etc... With two simple steps, you can resolve it.
    Maybe it s late to answer this, but i know a way of resolving this, so i ll help.

    It seems that your autorun.inf is infected.

    First of all you ll have to download flash disinfector program, you migt find it here, copy the link, or just google search "flash disinfector":


    After that update your antivirus with the latest update and then start to scan drive c:
    I would recommend avast antivirus free edition.

    Once it finds the autorun.inf virus, delete the virus... And stop further virus scanning.

    After that, just start the flash disinfector exe program, and it will solve the problem.
    It will ask you to insert flash, there is no need for it, just press OK and proceede..

    Hope it helps.
