    Error when opening c:

    Can anybody help ?

    One of the computers running on my LAN has the following problem:

    When opening Explorer and double clicking on c: I get the error message "Copy.exe cannot be found."
    I can however open c: by using right click and going to Explore.
    O/S is XP Home.
    Assistance would be greatly appreciated !

    I was going to suggest using a good antivirus myself, but it seem one did the work for you...

    Good FREE Anitiviruses (download links):
    Avast 4.8 Home ***** (29MB) (My choice)
    AVG 8 FREE** (59MB)

    Best Paid:
    Panda Security ****
    Avast
    AVG

    Avoid:
    Norten Anti virus
    PC Tools

    Ok, I resolved the problem by downloading a program called "PRT" from the following website: http://www.sergiwa.com/ and installed this.

    This problem is apparently remnants of a virus picked up by the A/V program and deleted but the virus by that time had already caused the damage and usually transmitted via USB storage devices.

    Works like a dream !

    Whoaaaaaa ! Sorry wrong info..............this is for the problem where one cannot open C: via the normal "OPEN" facility which has been replaced by an "Autoplay" option.

    I shall look up the remedy for first problem and post that again.

    Wow I thought I was loosing it. The fix sounded right, but then I must have been in the wrong forum. But this is the right forum. Wow confused. Thanks for the update, I would have been confused for a while.

    At this rate, I'm going to have to set up an error trap for this thread
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    That would be overkill, I'm sure.

    You can pick up a virus from USB storage devices? Goodness! I usually put images I wish to be printed by a photoshop onto a "store 'n go" stick and hand it to the shop. What precautions should I be taking?
