Hello,

Try to kill first the Autorun file.

Follow the steps below to do that:

Step 1:

Click on the below link and download the file "AutorunExterminator"

http://en.kioskea.net/download/download-11613-autorun-exterminator

Extract it --> Double-click on "AutorunExterminator" --> Plug your External

hard drive now.

This will remove the autorun.inf files from your External hard drive and also from

the drives.

Step 2:

Click on "Start" -->Run --> type cmd and click on OK.

Here I assume your External hard drive as G:

Enter this command.

attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.*

You can copy the above command --> Right-click in the Command Prompt and

paste it.

Note : Replace the letter g with your External hard drive letter.

Now check for your files in External Drive.

Step 3:

After that, download the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from the below link

http://en.kioskea.net/download/download-105-malwarebytes-anti-malware

Update it --> Perform "Full Scan"

Note : Default selected option is "Quick Scan".

Good Luck.

desperate <
i also got " access denied " written in the black window at the beginning cuse i type the wrong command - but i ensure u if u type correctly u will pass this prob as i did - thanks God :)

i guess u forget to change the letter g to E>> for i think your flash stored temporarily in driver E\:

now , ( copy and pate the following "directly" after u Click on "Start" -->Run --> type cmd and click on OK. ) :

attrib -h -r -s /s /d E:\*.*

remember : before doing all this insert your flash and keep it open > if capital E doesn't work change it to e < frankly i forget what i typed' E' or 'e' ,, it might has no affect however .
