Re: Problem in opening c drive

If you are having problem in accessing C:\ drive of your computer you can also try other method to access c drive. You can access your hard disk from the command prompt. To run command prompt in your computer just go to start then select Run and type cmd and press enter. Now command prompt window will appear on your desktop screen. In command prompt do the following things , First- Type cd\ then type attrib -r -h -s autorun.inf and press enter , Now type del autorun.inf and press enter . Now type c: and press enter. Now your C drive will open.You can access your files.

Re: Problem in opening c drive

You are not able to access drives on your computer. This may be because of viruses. You can browse your hard disk by other ways , Just right click on your hard disk partition and and select Explore option from the list. Now you can see the data of your drive. If you are unable to access hard disk by this method then you can try one another method just select local disk(C) from address bar. But you should update your antivirus software to secure your computer from viruses and threats.

Re: Problem in opening c drive

So you are unable to open the drive of your desktop. The reason of this problem is you computer is infected with the viruses. Some viruses affect the drives so that it becomes impossible to access drives by double clicking the drives. you can access the drives by explore option which appears on right clicking the drives. If then also you are unable to browse the drives then it is better to format your computer and install a fresh copy of windows or whichever operating system you are using. By installing new copy of operating system your problem will be solved.
